DIY: Turmeric face mask
- Chickpea flour (Besan),
- Lemon juice for oily skin OR milk/cream for dry skin. Or just use water.
Mix all the component together. Just take them in some small rough amount. Apply it on your face or body, leave on for 20-25 minutes. Either wash off with warm water or rub it in circular motion to give a scrubbing effect.
- Do a patch test to check if you are allergic to turmeric,
- If you use this mask during day time, follow up with a Sunscreen when going out,
- Since turmeric is know to stain the skin, follow up with a mild cleanser
I personally use this at night, and just wash off with plain water. I use a cleanser in the morning to remove the stain. Don’t forget to change your pillow cover to a dark shade when going to bed with turmeric stain on the face.
