I cannot recommend this enough. I had my reservations about rubbing turmeric over my face, but it really helped a lot. I used to get a lot of very inflamed acne all over my face, but now only get the occasional small ones here or there (though I still have scarring).
It's not a miracle cure (I still have some acne) but it has definitely improved my skin a lot.
It didn't stain my face, though I am somewhat tan, so if you are pale I would recommend being prepared for that.
Also, I have also began a facial scrub of sugar and lemon in conjunction with this, so that could be helping too.
I now do:
Wash face (I use neutrogina hydrating wash)
1 tbsp brown sugar + 1 tsp lemon juice
rub onto face, rinse off after a few seconds
dry w/clean towel
mix 1/4-1/2 tsp turmeric w/approx 1 tbsp honey
rub all over face, leave for 10-20 min (I'd do less, if you are paler though)
Rinse, dry again
use nightly cream (I have a medicated cream I use as well, though it didn't do much until I started using the face scrub/turmeric)
Doing this has really helped me, I am now reconsidering trying BC at all at risk of messing with my face, I hope this helps!
I've been using turmeric for about 3 days and today I think I noticed a difference. My face seemed to glow and my pimple redness is no where near to how it used to be last week. I use everyday for as long as I can and put coconut oil all over my face afterwards because my skin is really dry. O, and even put this stuff on my arms to whiten.
IT WORKS WELL FOR ME. MY ACNE HAS BEEN REDUCED. MY ACNE SCARS AS WELL. MY SKIN IS FLAWLESS AND GLOWING.
IT EVEN MAKES MY SKIN BRIGHTEN UP A LITTLE.

PUT IT ON FOR 15-20 MINS AND WASH IT OFF.
THE BEST REMEDY FOR ACNE EVER!
I find that a thick paste of turmeric and honey applied overnight on a zit greatly reduces scarring and redness. Of course, turmeric stains absolutely everything, but I'm willing to put up with it for what it does for my skin!
Turmeric is incredible! When I use this as a mask (once per week) my skin glows and the tone is very even! I usually mix about a teaspoon with enough honey to spread evenly over my entire face, leave the mask on for 15-20 minutes, and simply wash off with warm water.
I have had bad acne and pigmentation since my teenage years. Have done facials and used sensitive skin products and no improvement. Recently due to mums suggestion I started using tumeric (please note the best tumeric is wild tumeric powder not curry tumeric powder). I use it with honey and yogurt, make a face mask and leave on for 15 min. Have been using it before bed for every three days. I wash it off with warm water and a cleanser after to remove stain. Wild tumeric has a nice smell as opposed to curry tumeric. This is making my pigmentation fade and acne is going. Highly recommend it.
Hi- Just wanted to share my results from turmeric oil. I am a 48 year old woman (yes, acne at 48!) and have battled clogged pores and small pimples all of my life. I too, have tried almost everything from BP, antibiotics, salicylic acid. I'm also Spanish, so I have the olive skin tone which looks great in the summer but hangs on to extra melanin from acne breakouts forever! A few weeks ago, I started using organic apple cider vinegar with water, a few drops of lavender oil and frankincense oil. Dilute the ACV with water at a ratio of 1:1, add the essential oils and keep in a small glass jar. I use this as a toner every night all over my face before bed. Yes, it smells bad but WOW is it worth it. The ACV keeps the ph balance of your skin in check. I then dab turmeric oil using a Qtip, on any pimples and dark spots. You probably won't like the smells but this is why I do it before bed. My skin has drastically changed! Within 2 weeks, my skin was lighter and glowing. I've had so many compliments! Best of all, it's fairly inexpensive!
