Turmeric Face Mask For Rosacea, Acne, Eczema and Dark Circle

What You’ll Need:

  • 1 teaspoon organic turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon of raw, organic honey
  • 1 teaspoon of cow’s milk (or plain yogurt)


Mix the turmeric and honey together in a small bowl, and then add the milk or yogurt. Don’t add too much milk because you want the mask to be viscous enough that it will not simply drip off your face. Be very weary of your face mask if it is dripping, because turmeric will stain your clothing, sheets and towels.

I recommend wearing old pajamas and using rags instead of your best set of towels!

Once the 3 ingredients are mixed in together and you’ve achieved your desired texture, apply the mask evenly to your clean face (remove all makeup as well!).

Ensure that you cover all the trouble areas on your face that are usually plagued with uneven complexion, acne, or rosacea. Be careful when you apply it to your under eyes because the turmeric can sting your eyes, however you don’t want to miss out entirely on the effects this mask will have on your under eye bags.

After applying the mask, allow it to dry and leave it on your face for 20 minutes. When the 20 minutes is up, gently rinse the mask off your face with warm water. Dry your face very gently with a clean washcloth… dap it dry don’t scrub it dry!

If you have leftover mask paste, simply put it in a re-sealable jar and use it within the next 2-3 days. You can use this facemask 1-2 times a week if you’d like!
