The effect of turmeric on the facial skin is difficult to overestimate. Biologically active substances contained in turmeric penetrate even into the deepest layers of the skin. Here are just some of turmeric face mask benefits:
Turmeric Face Mask Benefits
- Choline regulates and normalizes the functioning of sebaceous glands. If you are the owner of oily skin, then you will definitely like the effect of the turmeric mask.
- Antiseptic and rejuvenating effect is achieved due to the natural antioxidant – vitamin C.
- Ethereal oils have antibacterial and antiseptic effects on the skin.
- Niacin (vitamin B3 or PP) is a vitamin that is completely essential for healthy skin. It has a regenerative effect, restoring damaged skin cells.
- Folic acid protects your skin from many harmful environmental factors.
- Phylloquinone (vitamin K1) removes swelling of the face.

Turmeric Face Mask Recipe
To prepare turmeric mask for face you will need:
- heavy cream or sour cream (1 tablespoon)
- turmeric powder (1 teaspoon)
- honey (1 teaspoon)
- wheat flour.
Mix cream, honey and turmeric. And thicken the mask with wheat flour. Apply a thick layer on clean, slightly damp skin and leave it for 15-20 minutes. Then rinse with water and a cosmetic sponge.
- Some time after the substance is washed away from the face, the skin may have a noticeable yellowish tint. This will be especially noticeable if you keep the mask on your face for more than 15-20 minutes. To get rid of the yellow face, make after it a whitening mask with yogurt, lemon juice and oatmeal.
- Turmeric has not only coloring, but also warming effect. So apply the mask before bedtime, so that the redness will subside during the nighttime.
- We remind you that, despite the high efficiency of the turmeric masks, you should be very careful while making them at home and applying them on your face. This is because of the main ingredient – curcumine, a natural coloring matter which is hard to be removed. Some time after the substance is washed away from the face, the skin may have a noticeable yellowish tint. This will be especially noticeable if you keep the mask on your face for more than 15-20 minutes. And, of course, it is better to prepare and apply a mask of turmeric in cheap home clothes, because subsequently it will be very difficult to wash it.
