Turmeric Mask Recipe: Ayurveda’s Best Skin Exfoliant

Bookmark

2 Min Read

Turmeric is a wonder ingredient in the kitchen as well as in your beauty cabinet. Use turmeric mask to exfoliate skin. Mix 1 tbsp turmeric and flour with water to make a paste. Massage onto skin for 2 min and wash off. Dry skinned people can add elderly blossom for added benefits. Add in lime drops/ lavender blossom for oily skin and rose powder for normal skin.

Turmeric is an age old remedy for a wide range of skin problems. Ayurveda recommends turmeric to be used regularly for glowing, blemish free complexion. Turmeric does wonders to the skin as an exfoliant. Apart from removing dead skin and impurities, the turmeric mask also maintains the natural pH balance of the skin and imparts a healthy glow to it.
Any pack we put on the skin for 20 min or so gets absorbed into the blood stream. So what better option than the `yellow gold’, as Indians refer to turmeric to enhance beauty?

Make Your Own Turmeric Skin Exfoliant

Here is a simple turmeric mask recipe for different skin types. Follow the below instructions.

  • Turmeric 1 tbsp.
  • 2 tbsp. flour (for vata use oatmeal, for pitta use chickpea and kapha use barley flour).
  • Make it into a paste by adding a little water and massage into face and neck. Rub into skin for 2 min and wash off.
  • For oily skinned beauties, add in some lavender blossom, coriander powder or few drops of lime.
  • For dry skin, add in some elderly blossom.
  • For normal skin, rose powder can be added for that extra glow.
  • Ideally do this before a shower so that you can deal with the yellow stain the turmeric mask leaves on the skin.

Excuse me, 2 mins or 20mins everyone?

As above they write "Any pack we put on the skin for 20 min or so gets absorbed into the blood stream. So what better option than the `yellow gold’, as Indians refer to turmeric to enhance beauty?"

And below is just "for 2 min and wash off"

Dr. Mike Dow also recommends using it for "Brain Fog" by drinking it with pepper in water every morning. It's in his book with the title I mentioned.

I rub off in the shower then wash my face with a natural olive oil soap. Then before applying my usual moisturiser I use a toner to rub off any yellow residue.  If it is very noticeable you could try applying coconut oil or other oil to your face afterwards then smoothing off with tissues - that should pull the colour from your pores

lol. use lime or lemon with chick pea flour. Make paste, apply on the skin and gently massage with your finger tips, in circular movenents. You may have to repeat the application more then one to rid the yellow stain on your skin. I hope I have helped you resovle the after effect of tumuric facial mask

Oh,nothing like that . But when u are applying turmeric to get a advantage of glowing skin instead of that ur skin will become opposite to that then it will be a side effect. I just wanted to know about it. To have dark or other colored skin its all personel choice.

This is true.it will give a glow and charm to your skin. But I have one doubt - Will it make your skin dark if you expose to sunlight soon you wash your face. Bcoz I have never been out after washing my face,but I have heard this from someone.
