If you are having problems with acne or scarring or perhaps just want to spruce up your skin and get your glow back – these 3 easy do-it-yourself recipes are all you need.


  1. Tumeric + Honey + Milk

Remove all traces of makeup. Wash your face gently with warm water to open up pores and allow the nutrients to sink in. Make sure face is dry before using this mask. Mix the above ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl. Using clean fingertips, slather a thin amount of the turmeric facemask onto your face. Let mask sit for five to 10 minutes or until the mask dries up completely. Rinse off with cool water and a mild facial cleanser or an all-natural homemade honey facial cleanser.


2. Tumeric + Avocado + Yogurt


Mash the avocado with a fork or puree it in a blender until you get a smooth paste with no chunks. Mix the pureed avocado, turmeric powder, and yogurt in a small mixing bowl. Smear the mask lightly over your clean face. Let it sit for five minutes. Rinse off the mask with cold water. Pat dry with a towel.

3. Tumeric + Lemon + Honey


Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl. If mixture gets too watery, that’s fine—you can just add a little wheat to make it thick again. Make sure face is clean and dry. Rub mixture into your face and let it sit for 10 minutes ( or until it’s completely dry) Wash the mixture off with warm water and pat your face dry. Watch your face glow!
