I've used this a few times and for me, the most resounding recommendation is that it doesn't irritate my skin, which is primarily dry-sensitive, but sometimes breaks out on the chin, especially ingrown hairs or if I get picky. I usually mix with yogurt.

HOW TO GET TURMERIC STAINS OFF YOUR SKIN

If you find a yellow stain left after removing the mask, just use plain milk like a toner, with cotton balls. Please don't undo all your good work using scrubs! Maybe the reason I don't have a problem with staining is using yogurt to mix? Just for the record, I'm pretty fair-skinned; took me a LONG time to try this as I was worried about staining.

I mix 1tbs organic honey, 1tbs orange blossom water (cheap brand from the grocery store) 1tbs turmeric powder. Basically you need as much of every ingredient and you can use a teaspoon as measurement, the left-over mixture can be stored in the refrigerator as long as you cover it with a lid. If the mixture is too runny for you then you can add some more honey&turmeric powder to thicken it.

I have been using this mask 10 days in a row skipping the weekends. Mostly after showers. I have seen a significant change. Scars from pimples are disappearing and my white pores and oily skin is under control. Overall my skin is approving day by day.

I leave the mask on for 30 minutes - 1 hour and rinse gently with cold water. My skin tone is somewhat olive-darkish and I put it on before going to sleep so the discoloration doesn't bother me. Usually it has faded in the morning and I rinse my face only with cold water.

I'd recommend not using your favorite pajama and bed sheets because it does come off. I think it's good not to rinse it off harshly. Gently apply a tiny amount of toner where you have pores/pimples and then apply your cream.

Usually the slight yellow color has faded in the morning and I rinse my face only with cold water.

Why orange blossom water? I store it in the refrigerator so it is cold. It has a good effect on the pores both because it's chilled and because of it's quality.

I'd recommend this mask to anyone with oily-combination skin, acne, pores, blemishes, scarring etc!

This stuff works really well, but for me it works better on my body than on my face. I have persistent acne on my chest, and if I use turmeric and water paste on it before a shower, it REALLY helps and makes it go away. I don't need to use it then for almost a month when the zits come back, ugh. The skin becomes SOOOO soft after using this stuff.

WARNING: This stuff is seriously messy. It will stain your fingernails and the stain cannot be removed. This stuff is serious. That is the only thing that I've experienced almost permanent staining with. I had to cut off my nails. I use it in cooking sometimes and if I use naan/bread to pick up/dip into curry/pesto chicken, it stains my nails also. It appears to stain white towels, but after washing them the yellow is gone. I suggest using latex gloves while using it as a mask or for exfoliating, and even for washing it off. Once the granules are removed/washed off, you can remove the gloves and wash normally. The yellow tinge is removed most easily by using a wash cloth with cleanser/soap on it.

I've tried a few different ways to use the turmeric powder. I've used orange juice, milk and water. Each way resulted in smooth, clearer, brighter skin. whenever I see a pimple coming, I dab the mask on and leave it on for at least 20 minutes and the pimple disappears by morning.

The recipe I used was two tablespoons of turmeric and two tablespoones of milk. Depending on how much I wanted to use that day I would make the batch every day according to that. I habe been doing this mask every other day now for two days and I am getting mixed results. It is getting rid of some pimples and then causing pimples again. My cheeks have two big pimples and small acne marks and there is a dark spot from a pimple.Be careful it will leave a yellow stain! Most people would probably rub at their face with water and facewash but don't do that!!! After you wash it off you should atleast have the yellow tinge on your face overnight. Then you can wash your face in the morning and the yellow will be gone! I leave the mask on for about 25 minutes and after the 25 minutes, your face will feel very tight! Just a little heads up! Turmeric also exfoliates the skin which is great! Make sure though that when you are washing it off, you use warm water and then cool water. So I will be using this mask for a month and tell you my results!

This leaves the skin soft and smooth, but it tints the skin yellow. On darker skin tones this ins't noticeable (as I've understood my friends), but on very pale skin like mine it does.

So, for me; great mask if I don't need to meet people or leave the house for the rest of the day.

I have blemished skin and oily skin. Let me say this I LOVE the mask I made. I've been using it for the past few days and it's great! I'm one of those face wash freaks where I have to wash my face 4,5 times a day. After using this mask it's not needed! It clears my pores brightens my skin and exfoliates my rough areas. The mask I made consisted of 1 table spoon of turmeric, 1 table spoon of gram flour, 1 table spoon of water, and 1 1/2 table spoon of SWEET almond oil. I mix it until smooth then apply to my face. I leave it on as long as I can, the minimum 45-1 hour. Upon washing my mask I rinse with cold water for about 3 minutes and use witch hazel on a cotton round to wipe off yellowing. Give it a try please! But remember everything doesn't work for everyone.

I've used this twice. I mix it in with greek natural yogurt. Leave on 20 minutes or longer. I have spotty skin and pigmented acne scarring at the moment so it's perfect condition to try this out to lighten scars or hep with acne at all. I found this reduces inflammation after a few hours when you get cystic acne but not small pimples. I had blind pimple on my chin and was waiting for it to have a head (use ACV and tea tree oil but no avail), then I used this mask, it actually shrunk one day after… Right after I use this, my skin is noticeably smoother (great exfoliator), but no change in terms of fading scars, treat pimples etc. It does stain, I use 5+ cotton pads with warm water and each turns bright yellow all over. But the stain is not permanent (Thank God, I won't look like the Simpson haha). So I'm going to use this consistently this week and report back if there's any changes with pigmentation of my scars and acne. For now I'm still on the fence.

UPDATE 19/12/15 This is pretty good. I have inconsistent results though. Some did not change, some shrunk overnight to nothing, some showed their head quicker! I think if you can catch it quick enough and dab it on the spot and leave it for as long as possible, it can work. Just don't pick on it. I also use this to add yellow undertone to my Rimmel bb matte and it works like a charm. I transferred it into a sample pot and do the mixing there, just add a little bit at a time and mix it thoroughly before adding some more to make sure it won't make you look jaundice. It doesn't stain the skin when mixed with foundation, makeup remover removes it easily.

I love Turmeric! I not only use this in my skincare but I take it internally. I buy turmeric supplements because it is easier to absorb in your body than taking it in spice form. It is an excellent antioxidant and anti inflammatory. I have been for about a month and I feel amazinggg. Turmeric is awesome for preventing cancers. Turmeric is excellent at reducing facial hair, every few weeks I make a large batch of Turmeric mask and I apply it to my arms and legs. It reduces hair while giving me an awesome glow. I also use this in just about every diy face mask I make These are some things I like to mix it with: Aloe Vera juice/Gel Besan Flour Manuka honey Rose Water Yogurt Kaolin clay....The list goes on Overall it has lighten my acne scars, reduced my facial hair and made my skin so even and glowy!

So I read so many reviews about turmeric and thought yeah why not. Lets try this home remedy since natural ingredients are known to be void of side effects. Plus my skin is super sensitive .. tea tree oil is so strong , other benzac or peroxide tropical creams are useless . They make my skin prone to sunlight burns .

I have mild acne on my right cheek where as the rest of my face has scars from old blemishes. I mix one teaspoon of turmeric and half a teaspoon with pure honey. Reason why I dont use more honey is because i prefer having a face mask that doesnt drip down my face. I wanted the right consistency .


Ive been using this mask almost everyday and i can say that my scars are slightly fading.

Using makeup doesnt help with my case but i cant seem to find the courage to go makeupless. If you really want your face to improve you need to cut out on makeup completely or wear less at the least.

Drink mammouth amount of water. Blend and drink greens . Sleep before 1130pm

My face does feel 10x times smoother. No more dry skin .
