Now, more than ever, people are becoming aesthetic conscious. Both men and women want to look good but having dark pigmentation patches or skin blemishes can make you feel self-conscious. An even skin tone is one of the most powerful fashion statements one can have. You can spend money on skin lightening products that can be expensive but many people prefer to go down the natural skin lightening route. There are many natural products that can be used to remove a tan, fade dark marks and generally lighten the skin tone.

In this article, you’ll discover how to use inexpensive honey and turmeric powder that you can purchase from your local grocery store to make a face mask that can lighten your skin tone and fade dark blemishes.

Honey and Turmeric Facial Mask

All you need is a bottle of honey (raw organic honey is best) and a bottle of turmeric from your local grocery store’s spice aisle. Use a teaspoon of turmeric powder and a tablespoon of the honey and mix them together in a small bowl or cup. After washing your face with your usual face wash, dry with a clean towel then apply the turmeric face mask. Turmeric stains fabrics so it is best to do this in the bathroom wearing an old t-shirt and be careful not to drop any of the paste on the carpet!

Rub the face mask on your face using gentle circular motions, wash your hands and leave the mask on your face for about 20 minutes. The honey will most likely drip down your face so keep some tissue with you to catch any drips.

After the 20 minutes is up, wash the mask off your face with warm water, do one more wash with your usual face wash and then do a final rinse with cold water to close your pores.


Honey has anti-bacterial properties and turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties so together they will work to draw impurities from your skin and reduce blemishes. Your skin will feel smoother and softer immediately. Use this face mask twice a week and you will start to see that your dark marks are fading after just 3-4 weeks.

Turmeric is a theraupetic herb which cures most of the ailments of skin and body. It is a perfect ingredient which treats skin ordeals and leave your skin blemish free. The skin beems with radiance however, the best way to use the herb is to purchase pieces of raw turmeric from a grocery store and make a paste after washing and cutting. Remember to wear a pair of gloves as turmeric stains. Apply a mix of lemon juice and raw milk with turmeric and honey for best results. For those suffering from problems like acne and pimples, applying a face mask made from turmeric, neem paste, honey and lime juice. Always use lukewarm water to remove facial masks and obtain a soft and smooth skin.

Here is another one for brightening skin:

A fruit peel can be made with one cup of fresh pineapple, a half cup of papaya and two tablespoons of honey. Once the ingredients are placed in a blender and pureed, apply the mixture to your face and leave it on for two to five minutes before rinsing with cool water. Leave it on sensitive skin for about two minutes.

Mix turmeric powder with cucumber and apply on the area. Rinse after 20 minutes
OR
Make a paste with turmeric powder, saffron and lemon juice and apply on the tan area, this will help lighten the area.

Home remedies are best for skin purpose because they have no chemical reaction.
Use turmeric powder with a tablespoon of lemon juice. Lemon juice is an excellent exfoliant and a natural bleaching agent. Basically, lemon juice can prove wonders for your complexion and can flawlessly fade dark spots.

Good Luck!

Turmeric is a warm, yellow, earthy, slightly bitter spice used in ritual, medicine, and cooking. Turmeric paste is applied to bride and groom before marriage in some places of India, Bangladesh, and Pakistan. Although a deep yellow color, turmeric makes a poor fabric dye because it quickly fades when exposed to light. Turmeric can be used as an indicator of acidic or basic properties of a substance.

I wish I had known about turmeric before I bought expensive creams that didn't work and high-end makeup to cover the left over pigmentation spots from my acne. I've been using turmeric masks for about 3 weeks, a few times a week and i have already seen my spots reduce in size and color. Current acne spots are also going away much easier.
i mix turmeric and milk to a paste, as i have found that reduces the yellowness the best, and wear the mask for about 15 minutes before washing off.

I will use this face mask twice a week, and my face is really glowing. Generally, I use Colza Raw Honey, and I purchase it from b-honey.be/.

In addition, I use some natural skin-care products, which are made with “Tamanu Oil”. Those products are really good for all types of skin.

Turmeric and honey, which are both natural skin bleaching ingredients will bring a beautiful glow to your face.Turmeric is an Eastern spice that is popularly used to bring a natural shine to skin. Honey is a natural bleach and contains anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that will promote a smooth skin complexion.

Honey and Turmeric face mask
Ingredients

1 teaspoon organic liquid honey
A pinch of turmeric powder

1. Fetch your ingredients. You will need a teaspoon of organic honey. Try not to use the regular honey in a bear bottle as this contains additives that may irritate your skin. Use only a pinch of turmeric powder. More than this might stain your skin yellow.

2. Pour the honey into a small bowl. Stir in the turmeric until you get a thick even consistency.Turmeric Honey Face Mask Mix it all up!
3. Apply this Mask on face and rinse after 15-20 Mins .

Turmeric may also revive your skin by bringing out its natural glow. You may want to try a turmeric face mask at home to see if the spice has any positive effects on your skin. You can mix small amounts of Greek yogurt, honey, and turmeric together and apply to your face.
Wallace shares four of the main skin-saving properties of honey. Acne: Honey is naturally antibacterial, so it's great for acne treatment and prevention. Aging: Full of antioxidants, it is great for slowing down aging. Complexion boost: It is extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it helps create a glow.

Tumeric actually has antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties when used topically on skin. It is one of my favorite ingredients as it really works very well on skin.
