Homemade turmeric face mask to treat acne and dark circles:
Ingredients: 1 teaspoon of turmeric, 1 teaspoon of raw organic honey, 1 teaspoon of natural yoghurt, 1 teaspoon of lemon juice (optional)
Method: Put all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix together. You can adjust the amount of the yoghurt according to the thickness you want, but make sure it’s a firm paste that will stick to your face. Turmeric is a dye and it can stain anything, so you don’t want it dripping off your face.
Apply the mask evenly all over your face! Let the mask dry for 20 minutes and then wash it off with cool water. Dry your face gently with a face towel. You can repeat this mask every few weeks.
The only side effect is that turmeric will turn your skin a little yellow since it is a dye, but that can be cleared using a cotton pad and facial toner.
Turmeric has amazing antioxidant properties! It reduces inflammation and redness, promotes skin healing, and softens lines and wrinkles. Honey is a great moisturiser and yogurt is a great exfoliator.
Take the peel of a ripe banana (not overripe, you want one that’s yellow with a few dark spots), and rub it on your blemish for ten minutes or so. You’ll see a big difference in your acne, especially after a few days.
Why does this work? Bananas have so many anti-inflammatories, such as Vitamin A, zinc, and manganese. The peels are also natural exfoliants to remove toxins and helps to prevent bacterial infections that may contribute to acne. The enzymes help to heal scars and prevent new pimples from popping up, and the starch unclogs your pore. It’s basically an anti-acne powerhouse.
