Make a DIY turmeric face mask at home:
For each face mask I use:
1 drop of facial oil (of your choice)
1 tablespoon of turmeric
½ tablespoon of yogurt
½ tablespoon of sugar
Combine to make a mask-like texture. Before application, apply a thin layer of facial oil to your skin. Turmeric can cause light staining and the oil will keep your skin from absorbing the turmeric too much. Now, apply the mask the face for about 10 mins and then rinse off.
