Turmeric Is The Newest Skincare Craze

Mainly used as an integral part of Indian dishes, turmeric has been a beauty product for centuries. The popularity of turmeric is now extending to offering skincare benefits and improving overall skin health.

Turmeric contains more than 300 antioxidants, making it a powerful and effective healer for most skin concerns and conditions. Also, it acts as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, making it suitable for women with sensitive skin conditions like eczema as it will help soothe skin and reduce inflammation.

Here are three turmeric face masks to try for glowing healthy skin: 

  1. DIY acne mask

When applied to the skin as a mask, turmeric  can help treat acne and also soothe blemishes.

Ingredients:

  •  1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • Raw honey.

Directions:

Mix the two ingredients together until everything is blended. If you find that the mask is too thick,  add a drop of water.

Make sure your face is thoroughly cleansed, fresh and dry before applying the mask.

Leave it on for up to 20 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water. This can be repeated weekly to help clean out pores, clear skin and fight break-outs. Follow with a light moisturiser.

Tip: The turmeric is likely to stain a towel, especially a white one. We advise rinsing with water rather than using a towel.

2. Turmeric, honey and milk mask 

This face mask is great for dry skin and can be applied weekly to give the skin a moisture boost and a gentle nourishing treatment. Milk is known for softening rough skin, while honey will hydrate and moisturise skin.

Ingredients: 

  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon honey

Instructions: 

Before applying the mask, ensure skin is clean and dry.

Mix the above ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl.

Using clean fingers, slather a thin amount of the turmeric face mask onto your face. Sit for 10 minutes or until the face mask dries up completely.

Rinse off with cool water and a mild facial cleanser


3. Turmeric, avocado and yoghurt mask  


This mask will give the skin an immediate radiance boost, reviving dull skin. Avo is a known superfood that contains natural oils and fatty acids, resulting in tighter pores and hydrated skin cells. Rich in vitamin B and Zinc, yoghurt will deep cleanse pores and get rid of black heads.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon avocado
  • 1 teaspoon yogurt

Instructions:

Mash half an Avo with the back of a fork until you get a smooth paste. Make sure there aren’t chunks.

Combine the avocado, yogurt and turmeric powder in a mixing bowl.

Apply the mixture over your clean face and let it sit for five minutes.

Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water.
