I slept with it on last night and while it did take a bit of scrubbing it wan't too difficult to take off and I have extremely fair skin. I just used a washcloth and then my daily peel pads but I'm sure a toner would do the same thing.

Yes it easy to take it of on the face then the hand anyway result can take week and complete fade mark or scar in a month. In a month your face will be lighted of since the turmeric will stain your mark and make it return to your nomal skin color tone in a month. Hope this help!

Do you think using scrub cleanser or baking soda can take tumeric off the next morning? And can I use this in conjunction with AHA lotion? Happy New Year !

AS i say if u put only in the problem area it easy to take it of but if u put whole face it hard to take it of but if u want full face lighted up and skintone go for it. But use the baby towel wipe or bakeing soda like u say. Yes u can put AHA lotion on the morning but not at night because u use the tumeric only at night, For a few day your your mark may look worse then a week it should improve color then a month it will fade or return to your normal skintone since it stain your mark.

People got red mark or brown mark because wound not healing that mean u put chemical product from the store it slow down the healing that why it take a long time to work but if u use natural product and it cheap. It should help u heal and stain your mark until it return to your normal skintone. Read what number 19 say Here are 20 reasons to add turmeric to your diet: 19. Speeds up wound healing and assists in remodeling of damaged skin. This what u need to heal scar!

Last night I went out a purchased some turmeric and also some turmeric capsules since many people said it tasted awful.

To tell you the truth it smells awful. I mixed it with water and plugged my nose as i put i on my face. It turned my nails yellow, but I'll just start wearing gloves to pat it on. I am going to stop using BP, because I am pretty sure thats why I am still seeing red marks.


i'll keep you updated.

Interesting. I have never tried it topically, but I take turmeric extract supplements, TurmericForce (you can find it at health food stores or online - my favorite online vitamin place is vitacost).
I have natural turmeric powder in my spice cabinet for making Indian food, I will try the topical paste, thanks.

Does anybody know what a good, safe amount of powder to ingest daily is?

Thanks for the heads up on the nail staining, I wouldn't have thought of that. I guess I will wear a latex glove on my right hand while I do this for application.

Also, how long did you leave it on? Was it easy to wash off after the first application, or was it starting to stain your skin already?

I used it for the first time last night and left it on for 15-20 minutes. After I washed it off I had that fake tan look going on and this morning the rest of it came off after my completing my AM regimen. Definitely best to use it at night.

How did you remove it?

See, I'm not going to use any more harsh cleansers on my face, it's overstimulating my oil production. I DO have an all natural soap bar, but it's loaded with oils that clog me up every time.

Think it will be possible for me to remove it with just my hands and soaking my face in water and such?

Also, it makes me leery to know that you only used it for 20 minutes, I wonder how bad it would stain if it was left on all night!

Probably way too early, but do you see any signs signaling that it could work?

Hey, I've tried it and it made my face a little yellow but it went off after a few minutes and same with my nails. I just hope it won't stop my facial hair growth cause I've read on a few websites that women use it for that but I hope its different for guys

Hi tth1990

Last night i used the tumeric as a paste (mixed with water as i didn't have any lemon juice) and left it on over night. I was amazed at how much calmer my face was in the morning - ok i was very yellow but this came off with bicarbonate of soda made into a paste with a little water. It was kind of nice because it gave my face a bit of an exfoliation at the smae time. I then used my normal foaming cleanser and i was fine to go out. Not yellow anymore!

I am trying it tonight with lemon juice (as was recommended). It was a bit tingly at first but it feels fine now, so i shall leave this over night and see what happens in the morning.

I am also drinking a level teaspoon of turmeric mixed in half a glass of water to get the benefits internally as well.

I hope this helps!!

Oh one more thing, to avoid staining your hands mix the turmeric and lemon juice or water with a cotton bud and then apply with a flat ended cotton bud - the cosmetic ones!

Awesome, thanks for sharing battwoman04!

I plan on taking it internally too, and may have to altogether if I'm not satisfied with the mask aspect of it. I wish mine would come in the mail!! whistling.gifP

Let us know how the overnight mask works please!

This all sounds really good! I wonder if you can use this in conjunction with Delna's regime? The one with the baking soda paste, then the ACV/water to balance the face's pH and finally an eggwhite/lemon juice mask.... I love that all of this is natural, but i wonder if using all four of these pastes/masks is good? eusa_think.gif
