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.

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.

Removes redness
Turmeric is great for my redness, my skin immediatley gets calmer and less red and irritated. Doesn't heal my acne though

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.

How much turmeric do you use?

Worth trying
I use Tumeric every now and then as a face mask mixed with flour and honey. For me, I wouldn't say it clears breakouts, but it does help aid them a bit. My skin always feels softer and less irritated after using it. But, since I'm very fair skinned it tends to leave my face a pale shade of yellow afterwords. But, oh well.. at least then I have some color. :)

Hey peeps, so I'm gonna be brief and simple -not to bore you- I battled with acne since I was a teen, it wasn't extreme but it was very persistent and just wouldn't go away. I decided one day to dump all chemicals and shift to natural remedies, as they say: "You can't put things on your face that you wouldn't eat." Which I strongly believe in. What worked:- 1- Apple Cider Vinegar:- Raw ACV with the mother in it, worked like magic with me. 2- Olive oil:- Wonderful! Although I warn you, don't use it on a daily bases, and preferably after you steam your face. Also, preferably not to sleep in, as it can smudge all over the dirt on your pillow cases and sheets. 3- Lemon in diluted water:- Amazing! But also, heads up! Not to be used daily, regardless of your skin type. 4- Steam:- This has been the best grounds for starting any natural remedy, as it opens up your pores and helps with blood circulation. If you wanna smudge anything on your face, do it right after! 5- Honey + Olive oil + Lemon + Mashed banana:- INCREDIBLE! ESPECIALLY AFTER FACE-STEAM!!! Highly recommend this one, as it suits ALL SKIN TYPES. It acts as basically.. EVERYTHING. 6- Regularly consuming over 2-3 mugs of fresh green tea. Results take weeks to months to manifest, but it's highly effective when it becomes an-every-day regime. Promise! 7- Turmeric! Amazing! Just mix it with any other natural ingredient (honey, olive oil, coconut oil with lemon, etc) and don't keep it on for too long (30 minutes is good) and it works really well. Don't worry about the stains, they go off on their own quickly, you don't have to over-wash and dry your face, you'll wake up totally NOT looking like a simpson. ;) What didn't work:- 1- Retin A:- Dried up my skin and cured the acne, but I broke out all over again just weeks later. Baaaaaaad. 2- Overly washing the face with harsh soap:- The most important thing about keeping a healthy skin is MOISTURIZING! If your skin is dry on a regular basis, expect to break out. Trust me on this one. 3- Scented soap, oil, etc.. Anything scented, will MOST PROBABLY IRRITATE YOUR SKIN. 4- Toothpaste. Really bad choice. It dries up your skin, and it contains SLS (Sodium Sulfate LaurylLauryth). Baaaaaaaad. 5- Antibiotics. It takes too long to explain this one, but trust me, if anyone tells you they get cleared up afterwards, will not be followed by the fact they get break-outs again. It's not effective on the long run. And the re-break-outs, they're worse. Basically guys, don't let your skin get dependent on anything, thus don't overuse any treatment (especially if you are into chemical ones). The skin gets dependent, so when you stop using the product you'll just break out all over again. And this is where natural remedies kick in for the rescue, most of them don't cause dependence, nor irritation (if used in low to moderate times per dayweekmonth -it depends-. If ya'll got any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer!

Hi Sage - Thanks for this helpful review! I've been using the honey, lemon and banana face mask for some time now, and I love it! Could you share what kind of face wash and moisturizer you use? My face can get pretty dry - especially in the winter time - which leads to a lot of breakouts. Can't seems to find really good, fragrance-free cleanser and moisturizer.

turmeric face and body mask
it does stain my face yellow but I do the mask before bed every other night during the week and the stain is very faint in the morning ; it comes off with a little face wash in the morning. Ive heard that you shouldn't wash your face after using the mask whitch is why I use it right before bed and wash in the morning when I wake up. i just use it with yogurt and lemon juice. Ive only used it one fully so idk if ive seen results yet. but so far its a 4/5 for me
