We use turmeric to cure many diseases and skin disease is one of them. Turmeric is good for skin as I already talked about that in the 'Use of turmeric'. Here we will learn how to make turmeric face pack to improve your skin tone, to remove the dark patches from your skin and to get fair and healthy skin.
Turmeric face pack will sanitize your skin and will make it beautiful. Make a paste with turmeric powder, cream/curd, and rose water and apply on your skin for 20 minutes then wash it off with normal/ luke-warm water. This face pack is good for all types of skin.
If you wish to remove acne scar you can make a face pack with lemon, honey, curd, gram flour and turmeric. Take 1 table spoon gram flour, one tea spoon honey, one tea spoon curd, 1/2 tea spoon turmeric powder and one tea spoon lemon juice and mix them together. The texture of the mask should be soft and creamy. After adding all the ingredients if you feel that the mixture is not soft enough you should add little bit of more curd. Then apply this mask for 20 minutes on your face. After that wash it off with plain/ luke warm water. If you continue apply this mask for few months your scars will fade away and you will get bright and beautiful skin. You should apply this mask for 2-3 days a week.
If you wish to have only bright and fair skin then make a mask with milk, turmeric powder and gram flour. Take one table spoon gram flour, ½ tea spoon turmeric powder and ½ table spoon milk and mix them well. Apply this mask for 15-20 minutes and wash it off with plain water. Regular use of this mask will surely make you fairer.
There is another way to get bright skin without using gram flour in your face mask. You can mix a pinch of turmeric powder in a table spoon of milk and apply it on your face regularly for 15-20 minutes. Then wash it with plain water. This face mask brightens the skin naturally. Many people are allergic to cosmetics like me and this face mask is best for them as it only contains the natural things which do not harm our skin unless you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Some people love rose water and gram flour. If you are one of them you can make a mask with gram flour, rose water and turmeric. Take one table spoon gram flour, ½ tea spoon turmeric powder and 1 tea spoon rose water. Mix the ingredients well. And apply this mask for 20-30 minutes and wash it off with water. This will make your skin fair. You can use this mask for 2-3 days a week.
With curd and turmeric powder you can make an instant face pack to make your skin healthy looking instantly. Take one table spoon curd and a pinch of turmeric powder and mix them well. Apply this mask on your face for 20 minutes and wash it off with plain water/ luke warm water. After that use some moisturizer on your face to make your skin glow more. Be careful with the amount of turmeric, use a little otherwise all your skin will look yellow like a jaundice patient. Start with a very little amount of turmeric until you find the right combination. You can use this mask before going to a party or a function.
I am very allergic to cosmetics. So I do not use any cosmetics on my face. I use these homemade face packs to improve my skin. My favourite face pack is the one with lemon, curd, honey, turmeric powder and gram flour as it removes scars, dark patches, sun tan and brightens the skin.
I hope you all will try some of these face pack and enjoy the benefits of turmeric.
