Brightening DIY Face Mask with Turmeric

Turmeric beauty masks have been used in Asia for a long time. Turmeric is a spice that possesses antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties which is one of the main reasons why it is so commonly used for various skin problems. Turmeric is used for skin brightening, redness, acne, dark circles, pigmentation and even eczema. It also can help dry skin and has moisturizing properties. Turmeric is one of my favorite secrets when creating face masks at home. My main skin concerns include dull skin and dark circles. But using Turmeric always leaves my face feeling moisturized, supple and most importantly, it brightens my skin.

One of my favorite Turmeric Face Mask Recipes: 

1 Teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
1 Teaspoon of Raw Organic Honey
1 Teaspoon of Yogurt (for normal to oily skin)
1 Teaspoon of Coconut Oil or Olive oil (for normal to dry skin)


1. Mix the ingredients together until everything is nicely mixed and it forms a paste consistency. Because Turmeric can be staining, be sure that the consistency will stick on your face so that it doesn't fall off.

2. Apply to a clean, dry face free of makeup. If you have sensitive skin, I would suggest applying it to a small part of your face to test it out first.

3. Leave on for 10 minutes and then thoroughly wash it off.

4. Pat your face dry and apply moisturizer.

*Tip* The Turmeric might leave a slight yellow stain on your face. However, this can easily be removed by applying a makeup remover wipe to your face after the mask. Comes off like a charm.

What are your favorite face masks? Have you tried Turmeric in any of them? Try it out and let me know what you think! 



  1. I love this mask ! I started using it about 2 weeks ago and the best part was that I already had all the ingredients at home.

  2. I always add a few drops of Turmeric oil in my water because of its benefits. When I saw this, I immediately clicked the post! Must try this!
