Turmeric for Skin

make your own turmeric face mask

If you have read my blog on using turmeric and activated charcoal to whiten teeth, you will know that they both worked a treat. Both are incredibly messy, staining clothes, hands, the sink and just about everything else so it was a surprise to discover they almost miraculously remove stains from teeth. I balked at the idea of a charcoal face mask, but it was marvellous.

What about turmeric though? It’s supposed to be fantastic for the skin – rejuvenating, anti-ageing, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, so it’s good for wrinkles, acne, rosacea and removing dead skin cells. That sounds all very well and good but I have also read somewhere that it leaves you looking a little yellow. Yikes.

As I didn’t need to show my face in public for a couple of days and in the interests of beautiful skin everywhere, I decided to give it a bash.

The verdict? No discernible staining and my skin felt pretty darn good – soft and happy.

I have to say this was by far the best tasting (and smelling) mask I have ever tried. It’s probably worth doing on a regular basis for cumulative results.

    Ingredients
    • 1 teaspoon Coconut Oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
    • 1 teaspoon honey
    • (approximate measurements)
      Instructions
      1. Mix everything together in a small bowl – you want a really thick paste, thicker than you think you will need because as soon as you apply it, the coconut melts and the mixture thins
      2. Put on an old shirt
      3. Hold a warm, wet facecloth against your face a few times to dampen skin and open pores
      4. Dab mixture all over the face, jaw line, and down the neck
      5. Leave on for about 20 minutes
      6. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry
      Recipe Notes

      Tip: apply mask with a brush. Turmeric seems to wash off the face but not the fingernails.
