Turmeric Face Mask Recipes

Turmeric is best known for use in curry powder but it has many medicinal and cosmetic uses in eastern countries.  In Asia, women use turmeric in face masks to help fight acne and other skin blemishes. In addition, it can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and reduces skin discoloration to even out skin tones.  As a young child, I was a very clumsy kid and accumulate plenty of scars on my legs.  By applying fresh turmeric, my mom was able to lighten up the scars and even make them disappear completely.  Nowadays, turmeric is a valuable part of my skin care routine. I use fresh turmeric as well as the powder form.  I try to buy organic turmeric powder whenever possible since it’s healthier and convenient.

There are a lot of skin care products out there that claim to erase dark spot and help wrinkles but they utilize harsh chemicals and preservative that is more detrimental than beneficial.  A better, more effective, natural, and inexpensive way is by making your own turmeric masks. Below are 5 turmeric face mask recipes that I have personally made and used and have had greats results with.

For all theses recipes:

  1. Mix ingredients into a smooth paste.
  2. Apply it on your face leave for 20 minutes or as long as you can for a beneficial effect on your skin (you can leave overnight in some cases).
  3. Rinse it off with cold or warm water.

Turmeric, Manuka Honey, and Lime

This face mask is for dry skin and dark spot(acne scar or pimple scar).  The Manuka honey is beneficial and healing for skin that is dry since it’s a natural humectant, putting moisture into the skin by enhancing skin elasticity and cell regeneration.

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of Manuka Honey
  • 2 teaspoon of lime or lemon juice

Turmeric, Coconut Oil, and Lemon

Coconut oil is great for nourishing and hydrating the skin. This mask will leave your skin smooth, soft, and glowing.

  • 2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoon of lime or lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil

Turmeric and Lime Juice

This mask is good for leaving overnight if you want an optimal result.  Put a towel on your pillow so you won’t stain the pillowcase. Once you wake up you can wash your face.

  • 2 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoon of lime juice.

Turmeric and Rose Water

If you want to feel luxurious and have a spa night this mask is perfect, also without the lime juice, you won’t feel the burning sensation.

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of rose water

Turmeric and Charcoal

Detoxing is not only for your body but your skin needs to detox too.  In Japan, they use activated charcoal to detox skins and body.  If you have blackheads you can use this activated charcoal powder and turmeric mask for best results.
