Turmeric face mask - Dr. Axe

DIY Turmeric Face Mask


  • Author: Dr. Josh Axe
  • Total Time: 10 min
  • Yield: 2 1x

Description

One of my favorite DIY skin masks is made using benefit-rich turmeric. Turmeric has been all the craze for dietary reasons but did you also know that it can also help your skin?


Ingredients

Scale
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric powder
  • ½ teaspoon organic apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon of raw honey (ideally also local and organic)
  • ½ teaspoon milk or yogurt
  • [optional] 1 drop lemon essential oil or fresh lemon juice for additional skin brightening

Instructions

  1. Wash face and hands first to remove impurities and any make-up.
  2. In a small bowl or jar, mix the turmeric powder with the apple cider vinegar, honey, milk or yogurt, and optional lemon oil. Try to get a consistency that will stick to your face. Be careful not to make it too thin as it may drip.
  3. Apply the mask carefully avoiding your eyes.
  4. Allow the mask sit on your face for 15–20 minutes.
  5. Rinse with warm water.
  6. If you have any leftover, you can cover and leave in the fridge for your next application.
  7. Apply twice a week for best results.

Notes

You may need to use a mild soap with water to remove the yellow stain that may occur. Be careful not to get it on your clothing as well, since it may stain.
