Turmeric Face Mask To Fight Acne

I am sure all of you are very much aware of this wonderful spice known as ‘Turmeric’. Apart from being a common kitchen staple in India, it is also widely used in beauty regime by many.

Some of the beauty benefits of Turmeric includes:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduces skin pigmentation and skin tanning
  • Controls acne
    Looking at these amazing benefits of Turmeric, I decided to go ahead a try on my skin.

    I had been experimenting with few turmeric face masks at home. The reason I shifted more towards natural beauty remedies has a story.Two months back I had to tackle crazy sudden breakouts around and close to my chin. Going for a facial at that moment was the worst and most stupid decision I had ever taken. It only made my face more red and real bad. Never go for facial when you have breakouts, it will just spread more. So, long story short, I wanted to share this very simple turmeric face mask recipe that helped me to get rid of the acne and gradually lighten those stubborn acne scars. I have an oily skin so this recipe is specially suitable for those with oily skin.
