Oh Turmeric!


First and foremost, stop your current skin regimen ( if nothing is working). Only wash your face 2 times a day with the mildest soap or jojoba oil or honey. Don't even use moisturizer unless you have super dry skin ( use a clear gel type moisturizer or light non-comedegenic oil). Don't wear makeup. Do not do the turmeric mask. Your skin will heal itself. After a month when your skin has healed, you can go back to your routine, and the turmeric mask.

It broke me out as a mask.  It faded scars in the beginning. I would say ingestion will work the best. Make sure you are taking probiotics if you have digestive problems so that it works better. Take it first in the morning and very last at night.

turmeric ingestion controlled my acne
I have been taking approximately 500 mg of turmeric with black pepper everyday at breakfast for several months now. This and cicaplast are the only things that have consistently worked on my acne so far. It is very important to add the freshly grated black pepper, without it it won't be absorbed. I used to have cystic hormonal acne all over my face. Huge inflammed bumps that never went away but also white and black heads. All sorts, actually. They hit me after I turned 35 and I have been struggling with them ever since. I am now 38. I still get some of it during the pre-mentrual phase, but they are small and fade away quickly. My skin is not only mostly acne free but also smoother and more even. On top of that, turmeric is a great antidepressant and I have felt much better efter I started taking it.

Trust in turmeric - but be consistent and take it the correct way
Genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors are unavoidable and they are like the trifecta for triggering inflammation based cystic acne. So any long term sustainable "cure" is going to be something that you ingest. I'm sure there are topical uses that are somewhat effective, but the only point in treating cystic spots is to prevent them, because they leave long term scarring and damage and that spot is forever prone to inflammation even after the cyst is gone. Turmeric is only fat soluble. So if you're drinking or eating it without fat, you're not absorbing it. The easiest way to do this is with a tumeric and nut milk latte every morning. Make sure its not bulked up with filler soy milk or loads of water, it should be a thick and pulpy type of nut milk. Also - the turmeric should be fresh. Yes, peeling and grating the bulbs dyes your hands for about a day, but just grate a handful and put it in tupperware and it should last a month. Use a teaspoon to make a latte. The dry powder is usually old and processed and the cumminoid levels and quality will be so low its pointless. Also, in the short term to treat cystic bumps, I cannot stress this enough: water, water, water, ibuprofen (take and spot treat with a paste), water, repeat. Also, I noticed that very very very gentle massaging on the hardened area helps reduces the scar tissue and helps the pus drain and blood flow to help your skin repair. Feels counter intuitive but that hardening and swelling is not good past a certain point, its blowing up a crater in your dermis basically. Also, coffee and caffeine, yes including green tea and coke zero and even cocoa, is not your friend. Its super inflammatory. If you have to drink it because you need it, take ibuprofen and drink a looot of water before and after. I had cystic spots and acne for about ten years and the consistent use of turmeric latte saw them disappear. I still have problems with hormonal fluctuations and surface problems with my skin but cysts have been gone for good. Obviously there are a few other things you can do to help the whole process (exercise - the sweating kind, no drugs or cigarettes, organic plant heavy diet etc) but those are normal things everyone should be doing for base line health but the cysts are a not a normal thing so needs special targetting - the lattes. Give it a month. You'll see a difference.

Also an amazing immediate fix is rubbing an aloe leaf on your face. Just slice off the leaf and leave plenty of the "slime" on there. Let it completely dry. Redness will be gone.

I have a tan on my forehead and nose that I would like to get rid of. I know turmeric is good for lightening but what other ingredient should I use with it? Also, I have a lot of cheek pimples and redness.

I would not recommend milk. Rather try using plain yogurt with turmeric.

Turmeric Mask - Loving it so far!
I have had adult for almost 3 years now (since I turned 22) and I have tried many different things to help. I have only done 3 turmeric masks so far, but the results have been amazing! I was sceptical but with all the great reviews thought it's worth a try. After the first mask, I didn't notice much of a difference and the next day I still had a few new spots (as usual). After the second mask, the next day the new spots that appeared the day before had almost gone already! No swelling or redness, I was amazed. And after the 3rd and today, I only had one very small pimple and all other spots had gone right down. My skin is the best it has looked in ages! Also the red marks left from old spots are a lot less noticeable. I realised as I barely had to use concealer before applying my mineral make up, where as usually I would go round my whole face basically with concealer first. I'm very excited to carry on and hope it continues to improve and prevent new spots. I will use every day for a week, then I'll change to every other day. My Mask: 1tsp Turmeric Powder 2tsp Honey (if I have some left over then I put in the fridge. Add a few drips of milk if it hardens in the fridge before applying the next day) Mix into a paste and apply for 20mins (I don't leave on for much longer as the staining is harder to remove, if it does stain your skin then coconut oil is good to remove the colour) I have decided to ditch all other products for the time being (was using dermalogica) and things I have noticed from just using the mask is 1. I don't need to moisturise after, normally any products/masks leave my skin feeling dry after washing off with water. Although I do use a small amount of bio oil anyway to help with scars. 2. Usually by mid day my T-zone would get shiny/oily, but this hasn't been the case. I go the whole day without it getting shiny woohoo. I will update in another week or so. For anyone thinking of trying it, it's definitely worth a try!! I love it =)

Hey there. Do you have an update and mind uploading pics? I just started with a honey/turmeric mixture today. Also, do you have another alternative to cleaning stains with coconut oil? I love coconut oil but putting it on my face breaks me out.
