But in the last couple of years it also became clear that a turmeric is very useful to fight acne

We have the recipe you bring the energy

…and the ingredients and some kitchen utensils please




Why a turmeric facial mask, what are the benefits of turmeric for me…or my skin?

Turmeric is known to slow down the aging process of your skin. It fights dry skin by stimulating your blood flow which helps your skin to keep healthy and fight the formation of wrinkles and creases

Like we mentioned a well known use of it in India is to make your skin glow and make you look radiant. There it is also used to reduce hair growth on the body


The main use of a turmeric facial mask in western countries however is somewhat different. It became clear that through the turmeric's antiseptic, antibacterial and anti inflammatory properties, it could help in the fight against psoriasis, acne and blackheads. And that's exactly what you were looking for?

There you can also find out more about many other possible ingredients and ways to combine them into your own signature facial mask recipe


Some useful tips

Before applying any facial mask clean your face and neck with fresh water. Take off all cosmetics, creams, lotions, in short: everything. Use a non abrasive, non aggressive soap if necessary. When finished, pat your skin dry

Even better is to take a hot shower or a steam bath to clean and open up your pores. For some useful steam bath suggestions & tips check our steam bath page


When you have applied the turmeric facial mask of choice make sure you take your time to lie down, place a towel under your head and neck. Put 2 cucumber slices on your eyes; or use 2 used and cooled down chamomile teabags (our personal favorite!) or 2 cotton pads soaked in rose or lavender water

Some words of Caution

A lot of fruits contain citric acid. Lemon, lime and orange (juice) in specific. When you use them in a skin treatment always be careful with how much you use. Too much can cause acid burns. Also if you have sensitive skin be extra aware with these ingredients

Same goes for all essential oils, this is really powerful stuff; be very careful what and how much you use

Because you can never be too careful when it comes to your skin, always do a patch test on a small piece of skin (e.g. behind the ear) to see how your skin reacts to separate ingredients
