Turmeric Face Masks

Do you have dark spots or trouble acne?  Adult acne can be caused by the environment, unbalanced hormones, and even by our diet.  Try one of these turmeric facial masks at least once a week to brighten your face, to eliminate acne, and to erase dark spots.  If you are unsure that you may be allergic to turmeric, test it out on your arm for a reaction before applying to your face. 

1. Turmeric & Lemon Face Mask

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp turmeric

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeeze lemon juice

Directions

Mix both ingredients together and stir until well combined. Apply to a clean face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Why it Works: Lemons have powerful astringent properties and will shrink pores, all while naturally bleaching acne scars and dark spots. Turmeric works to prevent excess oil and breakouts.

2. Turmeric & Aloe Vera Face Mask

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp turmeric

  • 1 tbsp aloe vera gel (pure)

  • Water

Directions

Mix turmeric with Aloe Vera gel and add a little bit of water until the mask forms a smooth paste. Apply to a clean face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.

Why it Works: Aloe Vera has powerful soothing properties, therefore reducing the appearance of scars and dark spots.

3. Turmeric & Milk Face Mask

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp turmeric

  • milk

Directions

To a bowl, add 1 tbsp turmeric, and add enough milk to make a smooth paste. Apply to a clean face and neck leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.

Why it Works: The lactic acid in milk sloughs off dead skin cells, revealing softer, plumper skin, and, over time, getting rid of scars and dark spots.
