1 Making Turmeric Pastes For Skincare
Make a simple face mask paste. Turmeric has long been used as an effective skincare product by many individuals worldwide, and many recipes exist for using turmeric in skincare regimens. Below is one basic, general use facial paste that might serve well if you are new to turmeric skincare.
- Mix a small amount of turmeric powder in a bowl (start with less and gradually increase as necessary).
- Combine honey with full-fat yogurt or milk until a smooth paste forms when stirred, making sure it can easily be applied to skin without sliding off over time. Adjust thickness according to desired application method – too thin will have difficulty staying put, while too thick won’t stay put.
- Use it as a 20-minute face mask or apply directly onto areas with issues, from chapping to acne and age spots.

Apply it with clean hands onto your complexion and let it set for 10-15 minutes before wiping off any extra.
Wipe and cleanse your face properly before wiping off, applying moisturizer as desired and applying a sunscreen or cream as required.
