Well I heard it is the secret behind flawless skin.

A friend told me about it and I decided to try it out of curiosity. JK. I’m not curious enough to use a random orange powder on my skin. Besides that, having sensitive skin doesn’t let you use just anything on your face.  But i needed redemption for my dry and sometimes scaly skin.

And of course this beauty gem is turmeric. In other places, people use turmeric as a spice but I have curry so I’m good. So far, I’ve used three different masks and they’ve served me judiciously.

MASKS

The Plain Jane

Turmeric and Water
This is a very basic mask for acne prone skin. It lightens dark spots, dries out acne and also prevents the skin from breaking out.

Mix turmeric and water and make sure it’s thick enough to sit on your face without dripping. Place it gently over your face (I usually use an old foundation brush) and don’t be scared of applying it on the skin under your eyes because it lightens that area and eliminates under eye circles. Wait for it to dry then lightly rub off.

Wash your face with a mild soap or face wash and warm water to open the pores. Splash with cool water and pat dry.

Au Naturel Aide

Turmeric and Natural Yoghurt
First of all, this title isn’t a thing. So lets just assume I’m not getting enough sleep (creative juices are non-existent atm). Before using these masks, my skin suffered from dry patches. I had dead skin which appeared as cracked lines and always ruined my makeup. Before you ask, I used boat-loads of moisturizer and I had routines that worked only for a few weeks, so I decided to go natural. And you know the saying that goes, “Once you go natural, you never go back” or is it?

Add 1 tsp of yoghurt and 2 of Turmeric. Stir until you get an even consistency. Add more of either products if you feel the need to.

Wait until it dries and rub off. Now wash off as usual.

The Bee’s Knees

Turmeric and Honey
This particular mask doesn’t dry that fast so keep it on for about 30 minutes. It keeps dripping so be careful with this one because you really do not want turmeric on your shirt or on any item close to your heart. Wash off as usual.
After washing off, I usually use the Olay total effects 7-in-one night firming moisturizer which moisturizes my life. I can’t even emphasize how good this is. My mum introduced this to me and this is by far the best thing since Neville Longbottom’s transformation. No kidding.

You can experiment as much as you want with other products like rice flour, coconut oil, milk, lime etc. just google away.

Turmeric masks are said to reduce stretch marks, eczema and other skin issues. Is this a miracle or what? Definitely not the latter. So, if you need more information on turmeric masks and its benefits, click on  the links below.
