Turmeric is most famously used in Indian cooking, but did you realize how good it can be for your skin? Turmeric is a spice made from a plant in the same family as ginger. I love ginger!
I have been popping a spoonful of Turmeric powder
into my tea or coffee when I have a migraine and it has been helping me considerably, which lead me to research the benefits of turmeric more.
You’ll be surprised at how effective it is in dealing with dark, uneven skin, as well as acne scars, with continuous application.
Turmeric has anti-pigmentation and brightening effects due to a potent compound- ‘curcumin’ in it. It helps lighten darkness around the eyes (dark circles) and improves the overall look of your skin pigment for fresh and glowing skin.
Turmeric face masks may also leave a slight yellow tint on your skin, even after you have rinsed off the turmeric mask. Thorough cleansing will get rid of the discoloration, so make sure you don’t do this face mask if you are about to go out. Unless you plan on using a little concealer that is. The skin lightening turmeric soaps I have had no issue with, probably cause they are not as strong in color.
Here is one of my simplest and favorite facial recipes using turmeric.
Milk, Honey, And Turmeric Face Mask
1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
1 ½ tablespoon of honey
½ tablespoon of whole milk
Milk, honey, and turmeric face masks are great for calming pimples and acne.
