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% it’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 that’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 don’t stain. Also do not wear your best night clothes as those stain as well from your hands. It’s all worth it!!
I am going to keep up the paste for another week and see if the spots fade away completely!!
