DIY Turmeric Face Masks

Turmeric is a spice that has grown in popularity, not only because of its delicious taste and health benefits, but also because of the beauty benefits it can deliver. Whether you’re looking to whiten your teeth or give your skin a healthy glow, this golden spice can do it all.

Honestly, when I first noticed that turmeric was being used in recipes for facial masks–which are normally left on the skin for more than a few minutes–I was uncomfortable. However, it wasn’t until I had tried a turmeric mask for myself that I realized that my skin was not left with a yellow hue. Instead, after removing the mask with my regular cleanser, my skin looked great and felt soft and smooth.

I alternate between two turmeric masks as part of my beauty routine: My Soothing Aloe Turmeric Mask is ideal when I feel my skin needs the extra hydration during the cooler fall and winter months, or if I had been out in the sun for a while. I tend to apply my Antioxidant Coconut Milk Turmeric Mask as my general go-to, which is also ideal for the warmer spring and summer months.
