Turmeric Face Mask

I am so excited to be sharing this beauty tip with you!
I first started researching Turmeric & all of it’s benefits a
few months ago. I was so impressed by all of the amazing
reviews that I had to experience Turmeric for myself.
You may be wondering what Turmeric is…

Turmeric is a spice that has been used for centuries
by women in India for beautiful glowing skin.
It has been proven to help with anti-aging, preventing
acne, soothing inflamed skin, & giving a beautiful complexion.
Turmeric is one of the universes healthiest spices.
It is an anti-biotic & anti-inflammatory that when ingested daily
has been known to prevent & treat many kinds of cancer, chronic
pains, Alzheimers, diabetes, & acne.

Basically, turmeric rocks whether it’s eaten or
put on your skin.
Let’s make a face mask to minimize those
pores & make our skin glow…


What You will Need { & some other options}

1. Turmeric- you can find this spice at your grocery or
you can find it raw & grind it yourself!

2. Milk- I used milk, but you can substitute plain yogurt, sour cream,
honey,  olive oil, almond oil, coconut oil… the list goes on!

3. Finally ground oats- I used oats, but you can use milk powder,
sandalwood powder, oatmeal flour, & again the list
goes on!

4. Bowl & spoon for mixing

5. Honey- Honey is optional, but I’m obsessed with honey
& it’s anti-inlamitory properties, so I include honey
in all of my beauty rituals.

I keep finally ground oats around at all times. I will blog about my
love for oats & all the skin benefits I have discovered soon.

This is what your face mask should look like…

It looks a little scary. I mean it’s a strange orange/yellow color
& let me tell you, you should be a little cautious.
A couple warnings… It will deposit color on your clothes, rugs,
& other items.. no worries, I have had no problem washing it out.
Also apply a thin layer on your face, you can use a sponge
or an applicator. I use my fingers & I have had no problems
with it staining my skin like some have said that have had.

 I apply the mask to my face & let it set for about 20 minutes before
I rinse it off with warm water.
I am left with a glowing complexion with a more even skin tone &
my sensitive skin loves this homemade natural mask!

 Final thoughts:

Turmeric has become one of my favorite things in the world.
I mix it in my green tea {adds a distinct flavor that I love} & I am
going to continue consuming it for it’s amazing health benefits.
As far as using it on my skin… I AM OBSESSED! My pores
are minimized, & when I apply it to my breakouts they become
less inflamed & less red. I also make a spot treatment out of it
by simply mixing water & turmeric together & applying it to the
breakout.. It works like a dream!

 Have you experimented or used Turmeric before?
What was your experience or thoughts?
What do you think of the turmeric face mask?
I would love to hear from you in the comments below
or on the facebook page {here}.
If you try the mask, let me know how much you love it!

  1. How funny! You & I discovered Turmeric at about the same point in time!! I am feeding it to my dog along with coconut oil to help with arthritis and joint pain (and the coconut oil has tons of other properties, too!). It has made such a difference. Thanks for the face mask idea, I’ll have to give this a try also!

    • hi anne,
      would you mind sharing what (amounts/body weight) you are giving your dog?
      thanks,
      misha

    • I’m glad I found another Turmeric fan ;) & I never knew until today that you could give it to animals. How awesome! I will have to remember this for my puppies as they get older. Have fun with the face mask.. I love it!

      • Love coconut oil! I’ve been trying to get our dog on a raw diet (little expensive right now!) and coconut oil is in the ‘recipe’ I was feeding her. So good for their coats as well as joints!

  2. I love hearing about natural health fixes! Love love love!

  3. We add a little Tumeric and/or Ginger to wet feed in the winter for our horses, it’s great to help them keep warm! So many wonderful healing properties too-also helped Princess (my mare) with her runny nose! Definitely going to try out this mask!

    • Love this! I never knew until today that you could give turmeric to animals! It makes a lot of sense :) & I love that it cured her runny nose.. That is awesome! You should for sure try the mask :)

  4. I learned from a former boyfriend that Indian women have used tumeric for centuries as a hair growth preventer and hair remover… they rub tumeric on the skin nightly. then wash it off. It prevents the hair from growing back. Also, turmeric is used as an antibacterial agent for cuts and scrapes, to prevent meat from spoiling. There is a reason turmeric was believed to be a gift from the gods.

  5. how much do you put in your green tea?

  6. I’ve been adding turmeric to as many dishes as possible for the last year. I hadn’t thought about using it as a topical, so thanks for the tip and I’m pinning this. I’m joining your site so I don’t miss a thing!
    ps – Does anyone know if you can give turmeric to chickens?

  7. This is great advice but you never did mention the measurements of each item. If you add too much turmeric, it is possible to stain the skin.

    I am making my own beauty mask right now with turmeric… Thanks for the tips on this.

  9. I am an Indian girl and obviously had to go through the whole turmeric body scub during my marrigae rituals! It does feel good after that! I recently thought about using turmeric face mask. I did so yesterday night. Just so that you can you could make the mask and store it for a week or not add milk in the begining and store for 2-3 weeks and add milk just before applying :)
    I had only one question, hopefully someone could answer that – how often do you think i could apply this mask? 2 times a week?

    PS: In my face mask I use- Turmeric + Gram flour(besan) + honey + milk

    • Oh and we have a cup of hot milk with 1/2 spoon turmeric and a spoon of honey during cough, could or sore throat. We aslo apply turmeric paste on sprained ankles and tie it up with a bandage or any swollen body part caused by hurting yourself.

  10. Great post.

    I love to make my own face packs but like to use herbs rather than spices. They’re just as powerful and a lot gentler on the skin. My favorites are galangal and lemongrass. The smell delightful and work a treat.

  11. I have the ingredients but you didn’t have the recipe on here. Please, send it to me. Thank you Rebecca

  12. How often do I do this ?

  13. Great idea. I can’t wait to try it. How often can this be used?

  14. Can mixing turmeric and only water have the same glowing effect on the skin? I have an oily skin and hence don’t like using honey as part of my beauty therapy. I have turmeric powder. Thinking of mixing it with water alone.

  15. I just had a turmeric facial mask yesterday and it really works wonders! Minimize pores and will leave your face oil free by just adding few drops of lemon to the mask. I made my mask by mixing these ingredients altogether: 1/4 tsp. turmeric powder, 2 tbsp. flour, 3 tbsps yogurt. Wait for about 15-20 mins before rinsing and put your favourite moisturiser afterwards.

  16. I’ve been browsing on-line greater than three hours today, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely value sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the net will be much more helpful than ever before.

  17. Hi Liz.
    I would love to give this a try but can you give me some measurement please.
    Also, how many time should I do this in a week?
    Please reply asap.
    Thank you,
    Fiona

    Hi, I’ve read that for it to work you have to leave it on for 20-30 mins then wash it off ONLY with water no soap or you will be removing the lightening effects. But I don’t wanna walk around with my skin looking yellow, so how long do I have to wait until I can wash my face with soap to remove the yellowing?

  19. can i use gram flour insted of oats???
    what is the benefits of oats in this mask
