Turmeric face mask recipe

1. Make the turmeric face mask 

The main ingredient in this face mask is turmeric, which has a lot of great properties, including healing and fading acne scarring. The other ingredient is fresh lemon juice, which also works to lighten acne spots and other dark skin spots.

Mix 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder with the freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon. Squeeze in more fresh lemon until you have a soft paste consistency.

Tip: the turmeric on this face mask will get on your hands and under your nails if you don’t wear gloves. It may also drip on your clothes, so wear old clothes or an apron or cover up while doing this tutorial.

2. Apply the face mask

Only use this face mask at night and try using it twice a week. The reason for only using it at night is because of the lemon juice. You don’t want to expose the lemon juice to the sun because of the possibility of bleaching.

Wash your face well. Use an old makeup brush to paint the turmeric and lemon face mask all over your face. If you feel a little tingling on your skin, that’s a natural reaction to the turmeric and shouldn’t concern you.

Leave the face mask on for 20 to 30 minutes to let it dry.
