All of us face skin-related issues ranging from like pimples, scars, acne to blemishes and dark spots. Though these issues are very common, it may end up bothering you.
Though there are a wide array of skin care products specially designed to get rid of these, the chemicals used in them might damage your skin even more. Not to mention, their high prices.
So it is better to use natural ingredients right from your kitchen rather than using these products that might be harmful in the long run. One such ingredient that can be used is turmeric. Turmeric has been used since ages by our ancestors for various skin related issues. Its antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory properties help in getting rid of dark spots, blemishes, pigmentation, etc., and brighten the skin naturally if used regularly. Let us see how to prepare a DIY turmeric face pack for a spotless skin.
Disclaimer: Some people might be allergic to turmeric. So make sure that you do a patch test before you apply it on your face.
- 3 tsp turmeric powder
- 1 tbsp yogurt
- 1 tsp raw honey
- 1 tsp coconut oil
How To Prepare?
1. Add some fresh, unflavoured yogurt into a bowl.

4. Finally, add turmeric powder.
5. Mix all the ingredients well so that there are no lumps formed.
6. The consistency of the pack should be a smooth paste.
7. If the pack seems to be too thick you can add some more yogurt to loosen it.
How To Apply?
1. First, clean your face and neck in order to apply the mask.
2. Apply the turmeric pack evenly on your face and neck with the help of a brush. This is because turmeric leaves a yellow hue on your hands.

4. Rinse off the mask by gently scrubbing it off in a circular motion.
5. Pat dry with a soft towel and apply some moisturiser.
