    Turmeric has come a LONG way in the past couple of years from being used in dishes to being a consistent beauty staple in treating a multitude of things from hair problems to skin problems. The active compound in turmeric is called curcumin and is a yellow pigment that is packed full of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. When applied to the skin, this powerful powder fights bacteria to eliminate and prevent acne, breakouts, and blackheads, all while reducing the appearance of acne scars, dark spots, and stains. These turmeric face masks serve to cure a multitude of problems including acne but focus more on eradicating stubborn acne scars and dark spots.

Turmeric Face Masks

#1. Turmeric & Lemon Face Mask

  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

Mix both ingredients together and stir until well combined. Apply to a clean face and let sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat dry.

Why it Works: Lemons have powerful astringent properties and will shrink pores, all while naturally bleaching acne scars and dark spots. Turmeric works to prevent excess oil and breakouts.

#2. Turmeric & Aloe Vera Face Mask

  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp aloe vera gel (pure)
  • Water

Mix turmeric with aloe vera gel and add a little bit of water until the mask forms a smooth paste. Apply to a clean face and neck and leave on for 20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.

Why it Works: Aloe vera has powerful soothing properties, therefore reducing the appearance of scars and dark spots.

#3. Turmeric & Milk Face Mask

  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • milk

To a bowl, add 1 tbsp turmeric, and add enough milk to make a smooth paste. Apply to a clean face and neck leave on for 15-20 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.

Why it Works: The lactic acid in milk sloughs off dead skin cells, revealing softer, plumper skin, and, over time, getting rid of scars and dark spots.
