4 Diy Face Masks You Can Make Using Turmeric To Get That Unmatched Glow

Every Indian kitchen is home to ingredients that are great not just for your health but for your hair and skin as well. One such ingredient that you will find sitting comfortably in the spice rack is turmeric.  You can add a pinch of turmeric in curries or consume it with  milk, but regardless of the method, its anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties make it hard to not love using it. If you are  a natural skincare junkie, chances are that you will consciously opt for products or methods that include  turmeric.  But if you haven't started applying turmeric yet, now is the time to start. And what better way can there be than a DIY turmeric face mask that is natural and safe for your skin.  

But why are we stressing so much on turmeric? The yellow hue of turmeric comes from a component called curcumin, which can effectively protect your skin against chemicals and environmental stressors. Cucurmin can also brighten your skin effectively and repair the damaged skin cells. If you're still unsure, let us share  some  amazing  benefits of turmeric face masks to  help you analyse if it is really worth the hype.

Benefits of using DIY turmeric face masks:

  1. Effective against chronic skin diseases
    Curcumin is great at cleaning up and transforming dysfunctional cellular damages. If one suffers from melanoma (a tumour of melanin-forming cells), adding turmeric into the skincare routine can be beneficial. In some cases, consumption of turmeric is great as well. Curcumin can also prevent oxidative stress on melanin-producing skin cells. 

  2. Prevents acne
    When your pores are clogged due to oil, makeup residues, dead skin, pollution from dust, your skin becomes  prone to breaking out due to acne or get affected by black heads and white heads. All the benefits of turmeric face masks can regulate sebum production of your skin and  prevent acne. 

  3. Reverses skin damage
    From imbalanced diet and hormonal changes to exposure to pollution, dust and UV rays, our skin bears the brunt of many stressors. This leads to premature signs of ageing, pigmentation, dull skin etc. Cucurmin present in the turmeric can combat the skin damage and retain glowing and beautiful skin with every application. 

  4. Skin-healing properties
    Turmeric is a great source of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it perfect for skin healing. Not only does it diminish scars but it also removes any discolouration on the skin. Most often, we apply a paste of organic turmeric on a fresh wound as its antimicrobial properties can keep the wound from any infections further worsening the skin condition.
