Turmeric as an ingredient for the skin is also helpful for in treating rosacea. It can reduce the amount of tiny red spots and breakouts that occur on the skin thanks to its skin-calming properties.

This turmeric mask can also help with reducing the inflammation and redness for those with eczema. Of course, we recommend that you check in with your doctor before trying this mask on very sensitive skin or before using it on children.

Turmeric contains a photochemical called curcumin which can benefit the body from the inside out!

Thanks to turmeric’s fabulous antioxidant properties, it has been used for skin rejuvenation. Turmeric can even soften and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful glow.

This turmeric & honey face mask is incredibly easy to make and includes just two ingredients!

You can also optionally add coconut oil to this face mask recipe. The coconut oil adds additional antibacterial and hydrating benefits. Personally, I love coconut oil on my skin so I usually add a bit to this recipe. I find that the coconut oil gives my skin a little added glow.

A word of caution, this turmeric mask will stain clothing, washcloths and even your skin. Be sure you don’t use it right before a big meeting or date. You’ll want to do a gentle cleansing after the treatment and again after a few hours to fully remove the yellow tint from your skin. Don’t worry, it isn’t long-lasting. This is a great mask to use on a lazy weekend day when you don’t have anywhere to be for a few hours.

DIY Turmeric Honey Face Mask

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon raw honey


 Optional: up to 1 teaspoon of coconut oil.  This will add extra antibacterial properties and hydrating benefits to the mask-though it will also make oily in a way that leaves the mask less of a paste and more of a spread, so it may not go on as thick as if you left the coconut oil out altogether.  


Directions:

1. Mix the 2 or 3 ingredients together until everything is nicely combined.  If opting to not use the coconut oil, you may want to use a pinch more honey or even a few drops of water.  When you’re ready to use the mask, apply to a clean, dry face.  This mask shouldn’t be uncomfortable at all, but as with anything new, if you have rather sensitive skin, you may want to dry a small test area of skin before applying all over your face.  Leave on for up to 20 minutes, this can be repeated weekly to help clean out pores and clear skin.  Follow with a light moisturizer, or even just a tiny dab of coconut oil. 


*A note about removing this mask.  I used an older wash cloth to remove it, the turmeric will likely stain a towel if you use one, I learned this the hard way a couple years ago and was prepared this time.  Good news is that if this happens to you and you used a white washcloth, once it is fully rinsed out, you’ll have a fantastically happy spring yellow cloth that can be used for removing future masks. 


You may also notice that you skin seems tinted yellow after this mask, almost giving you a jaundice appearance.  I followed up with a second fresh wash cloth and most of that wiped away.  There was only a tiny hint of yellow left after that. Just something to keep in mind so you apply the mask on a day or at a time when you wont need to run out the door right after.

    Hello, this is great mask, but will this make  your face orange? When we use turmeric it usually stains our hands. 

    Thank you for your time!

    Hi! I tried this for the first time after reading several recipes. I was always scared to try it because I was scared it would stain my face. After having it on for 15 minutes and cleaning my face twice with Cetaphil, it was mostly clean. I then used cotton balls soaked in witch hazel to get the rest of the yellow stain off. Worked wonders!

    Thanks for sharing this! I just tried it on my face, after doing a little steam. I was a little worried the yellow might stick (I have very pale skin), but I followed up with a sugar scrub, a cleanser and some witch hazel. No yellow tint, and while my face is quite aggravated right now, it feels clean and tingly from the inside. Hopefully that makes sense, haha. 

    Is this the sort of thing you have to use multiple times to see effects, or can i expect my skin to clear up in a few days after just doing this tonight?

    I’m 38 and over the last year have developed horrible acne and rosacea.  I’ve tried all kinds of cleansers and masks.  I have to say I did this and my face feels the best it has in a year.  Thank you!!!!! Is there a moisturizer you would recommend?
