The Incredible Health Benefits Of Turmeric

OK, first things first: what in the name of glowing skin is turmeric? It looks like someone threw a dried pumpkin rind into a food processor. But in reality, it’s a spice made from a plant in the same family as ginger. If you’re a fan of Indian food, you’d probably recognize the scent and flavor of turmeric from some of your favorite curries.

Turmeric has been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine for literally thousands of years. It gains most of its healing powers from its concentration of curcumin, a super powerful antioxidant. Research has shown that curcumin has strong anti-inflammatory properties and helps to slow the effects of aging.

While curcumin goes a long way in the fight against aging, medical-grade silicone does even more. And that’s exactly what SiO Beauty patches are made from! (More later on how SiO Beauty patches can transform your skin overnight.)

5 Fabulous Turmeric Face Mask Recipes

One important thing to know before getting started with your face mask is that turmeric can stain just about everything it comes into contact with. This includes your clothes. So if you’re getting ready to make one of these turmeric face masks, be sure you’re wearing clothes you don’t mind having orange stains on for the rest of time.

Turmeric face masks may also leave a slight yellow-orange tint on your skin, even after you’ve rinsed off the mask. This is nothing to worry about—a thorough cleansing and a little time will get rid of the discoloration—but it’s worth keeping in mind. So, in other words, you don’t want to try a turmeric face mask right before your big date or some other special occasion.

All of the turmeric face mask recipes we’ve listed below follow the same simple process. Here are the steps:

  1. Combine the ingredients together in a small bowl.
  2. Stir until the ingredients are completely mixed.
  3. Apply the mask to your face using a soft brush. (An old makeup brush will work just fine!)
  4. Relax and let the mask sit for 20 to 30 minutes.
  5. Rinse the mask off with warm water.
  6. Admire your skin in the mirror for as long as your heart desires!

Now for the main event! Here are five fabulous turmeric face masks that will give you that je ne sais quoi we’re all searching for.

1) Milk, Honey, and Turmeric Face Mask

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 ½ tablespoons of honey
  • ½ tablespoon of whole milk

Milk, honey, and turmeric face masks are great for clearing up pimples and acne. The lactic acid in the milk contains alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), which clear away dead skin cells. At the same time, honey is an antioxidant that helps get rid of the free radicals that cause flare-ups and break-outs. The result of this mask is clearer, smoother skin with a more even tone.

2) Yogurt and Turmeric Face Mask

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons of Greek yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon of honey

Greek yogurt is so wonderful in so many ways. We’re in love with it! Since yogurt is also a dairy product, it has lactic acid just like milk. In addition to the awesome benefits of the AHAs, yogurt moisturizes and hydrates your skin. Use the yogurt and turmeric face mask when your skin is feeling a bit dry.

3) Banana and Turmeric Face Mask

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons of mashed banana (about ¼ of a banana)
  • ½ teaspoon of honey

This banana and turmeric face mask provides tons of much-needed vitamins and minerals to your skin cells. These nutrients work wonders for your skin because they help repair your skin cells and remove havoc-wreaking toxins. Banana-based masks are also known to reduce redness and boost moisture.

4) Lemon Juice and Turmeric Face Mask

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice

Lemon juice contains citric acid, which acts as a natural exfoliator. There are lots of different exfoliating face masks you can make at home, but those with lemon juice are special. Unlike most exfoliators, the citric acid gently clears away dead skin. Other exfoliating products require physically scrubbing your body to remove dead cells, which can damage your delicate skin.

Lemon juice and turmeric face masks are great if you have oily skin or if dead skin is building up on your face.

5) Olive Oil and Turmeric Face Mask

  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

This olive oil and turmeric face mask is perfect for all skin types. Olive oil is one of nature’s finest natural moisturizers and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a little more moisture in their skin? If you prefer, you can swap out the olive oil for a liquid coconut oil, and the mask will still be super effective.

Additional Tips

We have just a few more tips to help you achieve gorgeous, glamorous skin.

First of all, be creative! You can definitely mix-and-match some of the ingredients in these masks. For instance, a splash of lemon juice goes well with pretty much any turmeric face mask. The same is true of yogurt. When making DIY facial masks, adding new ingredients and creating your own recipes is totally encouraged!

Second, make sure to get the consistency right. Your turmeric face mask should have the consistency of a gravy or a cheese sauce. If your mask seems too thin, you can add a little extra turmeric or even a bit of flour to thicken it up. If the mixed ingredients seem too thick, try dropping in a little yogurt or lemon juice.

Third, don’t be afraid to try some other facial masks! Turmeric face masks are incredible, but there are other all-natural ingredients you can use to make DIY face masks:

Pretty terrific, huh? Mother nature never ceases to amaze.
