So this is at target?

Hey everyone. I've started using Tumeric a couple days ago. I purchased it from a woman on Ebay (it's hard to find-even at Outpost Natural Foods.)

I mix about a tsp. of Tumeric with a Tbsp. flour and a tsp. of Organic honey. I put it on for about a half an hour then wash with this tumeric soap i also bought off of Ebay. [i'm addicted to Ebay.] :wall:

It really gets the yellow off quite well. I haven't noticed much improvement yet, but i'm willing to try anything at this point. One thing i can say is my skin's amazingly soft.

Someone mentioned drinking it. I've tried that for the last 3 days. It's not too bad if you mix it with hot milk. I mix 1 tsp. in a cup of milk before i go to bed.

I hope this works for you all as well as myself. :pray:

U can get it at ebay or online. If u use the root it will get best result, then the powder but powder work fine if u use water or lemon with it.

If you wanna buy it on Ebay, just type in "Tumeric Powder". I also purchased Sandlewood from the same lady which is also good for scars. Red Sandlewood is supposed to be best, but i found that out after i purchased it.

I got 4 oz. of Tumeric for about $5. I also purchased 1 oz. of Sandalwood for about $2 bucks.

If you google Acne, apparently EVERYTHING is good for acne. It's really frustrating. :wacko:

I think everyone in this world should try it because it a natural stuff that heal up scar,burn,or other skin problem without waste money on product that not working and harsh our skin. If it don't work u got nothing to lose but U get better skin. For blackhead i don't know but it heal acne or help acne scar.

I started using the turmeric root yesterday, poked it with a knife a bit to let the juice out then dabbed it gently all over the affected areas, my cheeks and chin. Left it on overnight and it did really stain!! dint get it out entirely but covered it with makeup

to LPN455

I just wanted to know if when ur using the root shud u be using anythin else with it?? or is just the root ok?? Im wondering because im plannin to, what i started last nite, is cleanse with mild foam cleanser, moisturise, apply turmeric, go bed, wake up and cleanse, moisturise as normal. Do you need to blance the pH somehow cos i kno thats important with keeping the sin clear. Will just using the turmeric root on its own irritate the skin?

Alot people ask me how to take out the stain from the tumeric. Like i say u only need to put on the problem area not the full face. To remove the problem use any kind facial cleaning soap or baking soda if u have it. The stain will go away itself because it a natural stuff it won't kill your face.

By the way if u can't take of the yellow stain don't stress of over it or harsh your face or give it up. It just like a tint color.

Ok thanks LPN455, so I dont need to use anything else after the turmeric? not to get out the stain just to complement its treatment effects??

Does anyone else use anything with the turmeric root???

Thanks for the link :)

I'm going to buy a few of these to save on postage (and will see if there's anything else I want from the shop) so if anyone in the UK wants me to send them some then let me know. It should cost around £1.50 for me to send it within the UK using Royal Mail, instead of the £5 they're charging.

you're welcome :) Yea i was gonna buy a load but then wasn't sure how long it will last before going off so i only got 100g

Im on my second day of using the root now, and its definitely reduced the swelling in some large red inflamed spots i had, not sure about the scarring tho, obviously its only been 2 days so I will see in a week from now

yea im mainly using it for the hyper pigmentation as my acne is not usually this bad, but the red marks are always there

Im not sure if the white turmeric is the same, as i was gonna get it cos i thought if its white u wont get that yellow stain, but im not sure if it has the same effect on acne and fading the red marks. I tried searching the difference but dint really get an answer

let me kno if u found out whether the white one is just as effective

also, has anyone been using this treatment for a while consistently for longer than a month? and do you have very old red marks, and is the turmeric helping those??

I have red marks that range from very new, a couple weeks old, and some that a maybe four to five years old, will the turmeric help those?

can the thread starter tell us how to store turmeric root? is it okay to put in in the fridge/refridgerator? Also does the colour of it matter or do they both have the same effect?

People who are applying it to the face should listen to LPN455. Dont apply it to your whole face! theres no point in it! Treat your face in zones. So say chin one day, forehead another and T zone another day.

This is how i think you should mix it:

Get some turmeric and mix with lemon juice until consistancy of toothpaste is obtained ( maybe not that thick but it needs to be pretty think not to runny) Then get an Ear cleaner ( sorry forgotten their name lol, the double ended stick things) then dab some onto the spot or over the area. If you cant get the staining off still then it wont really matter as people shouldnt notice as its on such a small area. Mixing it with lemon juice makes it come off quite easily i think. I also dont leave it on overnight; i put it on say 30 minutes before my shower so it has time to dry then just wash it off, do this morning and night and youre sorted!

I havent been using it on the face much due to lack of time lol, it takes a while to sort out but seriously this stuff is worth the wait, really hang in there with it you will love the results! I take it internally and its really helped me a lot! Im going to start applying to face regularly now so ill come back soon with results!

It has really shocked me at what this stuff can actually do. My skin is much much softer now its amazing! Turmeric has so many health benefits just research on the net.

Good luck! If you have any questions feel free to ask me! :dance:

When you say mix it into a paste, how do you do this with the root? Do you grate it first? Also, how do you take it internally? Again, do you grate it and then just swallow it? Thanks for the advice by the way :)

I dont actually use the root but im pretty sure that you would apply the liquid of the root to your face; as its already basically done for you lol. You could mix it with a little lemon juice as well to see if it will come off easier.

To take internally i mix a teaspoon of turmeric with water and drink it. I do this once a day and its really helped my body i think. If you have the root then just drink the juice inside it. Or you can actually buy turmeric capsules although these are a bit pricey so i just buy a jar from the local supermarket lol

With the root you could also eat it im guessing. Mix some into your recipes at home, or just eat it raw its all natural! Im actually coming accustomed to its very distinct flavour lol

So basically if you have a turmeric root drink the liquid inside, apply that liquid to your face and eat the root itself.

The root juice doesn't really come out that easily. If you poke it with a knife, a little liquid come out on top, but it's not really possible to get drops in your hand that you can spread around the face. Until now, I've just been poking the root and then applying it directly onto my face. Not the best method, but at least I'm getting a concentrated juice on the red spots. I'd love to be able to make a paste with it though. LPN455 and Helio - I gather you both use the root, do you have other suggestions?
