How To Care Your Skin with Turmeric Masks for Every Skin Type
Indians call it the golden mask because of its color and the effect it has on your skin. These masks are perfect homemade, natural masks that rejuvenate your skin and make it soft and gorgeous. Turmeric masks have been used for centuries in India. Turmeric is extremely beneficial for your skin; it has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties that will help you get rid of spots. Turmeric will also help you reduce redness and the appearance of acne and pimples.
For Normal and Combination Skin
In a small bowl, mix ½ tbsp. turmeric, 1 tbsp. yogurt and a few drops lemon juice. Mix all ingredients well and apply the mask. Leave the mask on for 30 minutes and then wash your face thoroughly.
For Oily Skin
In a small bowl, mix ½ tbsp. turmeric, 1 tbsp. yogurt, ½ tbsp. honey and a few drops Aloe Vera. Mix the ingredients well and apply the mask on your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash your face thoroughly.
For Dry Skin
In a small bowl, mix ½ tbsp. turmeric, 1 tbsp. yogurt and ½ tbsp. argan oil or coconut oil. Mix the ingredients well and apply the mask on your face. Leave it on for 30 minutes and then wash your face thoroughly. We advise you to use this mask every three days until you notice improvement.
Whip up a basic face mask paste
Since turmeric has been used as a skincare product for so long by so many people, it should be no surprise that there are countless recipes out there. The following is a simple, basic, general use facial paste that may be a good choice if you’re new to turmeric skincare:
- Add a few tablespoons of turmeric powder to a bowl start with a smaller amount and mix up more if you need it.
- Add a bit of honey and enough full-fat yogurt or milk to create a smooth paste when stirred. Make it thin enough to apply to your skin easily but thick enough that it will stay in place.
- Use it as a 20-minute face mask or for topical application on problem areas, which can range from chapping to acne to age spots.
Try a traditional Indian beauty mask
Turmeric has long been a staple of both cuisine and skincare in India. To this day, many Indian brides swear by a turmeric beauty mask in the days leading up to the marriage ceremony.
Address skin inflammation with turmeric paste
Turmeric skincare advocates have long championed its supposed anti-inflammatory properties, and modern science has started to uncover shreds of evidence that this may possibly be true.
Prepare your skin
To maximize the absorption and impact of a turmeric-based facial paste, you should first thoroughly clean your skin and open your pores. And honestly, what better way is there to begin a relaxing facial than with a nice, warm bath?
Relax and enjoy the process
Turmeric facials aren’t meant to be a quick, on-the-go treatment. Wait until you have some time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the process without rushing it. Once you’ve applied your turmeric concoction of choice, recline in a comfy bed, chair, or other nice spot where you can wait 20 minutes or more for the paste to dry.
Remove the paste and rinse and dry your face thoroughly
Although most turmeric facials should be allowed to dry thoroughly on your skin, they can usually be removed fairly easily with a clean cloth, warm water, and gentle but thorough wiping, dabbing, and rubbing. Once again, don’t rush things. Meticulously and calmly wipe away the paste.
