When we say turmeric – you’ll likely think of your favorite curry dish. But when we tell you that this understated Indian spice also makes a great face mask, you’ll just have to trust us. Turmeric has long been used as a powerful anti-inflammatory in both Chinese and Indian medicine.
Curcumin, the compound in turmeric that gives it its bright color, acts as a power anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant. Mix it with some pantry staples and you have a recipe that treats acne, eczema, red spots, acne scares and smoothes skin.
This easy turmeric DIY face mask is made from turmeric, yogurt, honey and lemon. The turmeric and lemon act as an anti-fungal, clearing your skin of toxins, unclogging your pores, and fading acne scares while the yogurt and honey soothe your skin.

1 tbs turmeric
1 tbs yogurt
1 tsp honey
1/2 squeezed lemon
