Turmeric Face Mask

Turmeric is a yellowish spice that most South Asians use for cooking, and even for skin. Turmeric can help with:

  • anti-aging
  • improving the elasticity of your skin
  • lightening pigmentation
  • brightening
  • controlling oil
  • curing acne
  • slowing down the growth of facial hair over time

As if it doesn’t do enough alone, adding 3 other ingredients can make it even better.

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 tsp gram flour
  • 1/2 tsp yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • pinch of turmeric

I used half the recipe here only to find out that it was only enough for a very thin layer. The right amounts are listed in the ingredients above.

1. Mix all ingredients together.

2. Apply to face. Leave for 15-20 mins (or until dry).

3. Rinse off. Toning is optional, but moisturizing is recommended.
