I have been using the turmeric paste ( 1 tablespoon turmeric powder mixed with a little bit of yogurt and water) and have been applying it all over my face (you can spot treat as well). Today was my 3rd day using and when I was washing my face I was SHOCKED!! I honestly could not believe my eyes! That deep purplish red colour spot had lightened 75% itâ€™s now a light pinkish red color. All the other marks have also lightened to a light pinkish color. ALL IN 3 DAYS!! In addition to the fading my skin feels so smooth! And I have also read that turmeric powder helps smooth out fine lines & wrinkles... not that at my age I have any but thatâ€™s another plus!! Only downside is the staining so if you decide to try this method prepare for yellow face and yellow hands... yellow pillowcase. I do the mask before bed so that way in the morning after a hot shower the stain has washed way. After I wash my face I put a clean soft towel over my pillow and go to bed so my pillows donâ€™t stain. Also do not wear your best night clothes as those stain as well from your hands. Itâ€™s all worth it!!
I am going to keep up the paste for another week and see if the spots fade away completely!!
