Using Turmeric Powder In Facemasks

Have you ever heard of an Indian recipe that does not contain turmeric powder? Apart from cooking, you can also use this spice in your everyday beauty regimens and to treat minor health problems.

Turmeric contains about 300 antioxidants, making this powder a powerful healer. But this magical powder will not only heal you from the inside but will also make you more beautiful on the outside.

This yellow powder has been used as a beauty product for centuries, since it is a relatively inexpensive way for treating skin problems.

Turmeric Powder For The Skin

Turmeric powder is an effective ingredient for soothing skin irritations, relieving pain from sunburn and treating other types of burns. Studies have also indicated that Curcumin is effective in speeding up the healing process of wounds.

Here are some popular benefits of using turmeric powder for your skin:

  • Treats Oily Skin: While oils are naturally produced by the sebaceous glands to prevent the skin from becoming too dry, excess oils can lead to breakouts, cysts and other damaging skin conditions.
  • Lightens Pigmentation: Turmeric can be effectively used to treat discoloration and pigmentation while evening out skin tone. This is one of the most significant reasons why many brands incorporate the use of turmeric in their beauty products.
  • Controls Hair Loss and Dandruff: Excessive dandruff and scalp infection is a common cause of hair loss. Fortunately, turmeric is an active ingredient that can naturally soothe itching and other scalp related problems without using harsh ingredients. Turmeric naturally eliminates the problem of flaking, treating hair loss.

Tips For Using Turmeric Powder For Your Skin

If you don’t want to resemble a yellow Telly Tubby, keep these simple tips in mind while using turmeric powder on your skin:

Treating Yellow Nails

It is more likely for turmeric to stain your nails rather than your face, especially if you will be using your fingers to apply the mixture. To remove yellow stains from your nails, dip a small brush in lemon juice and gently scrub your nails.

Dip a brush in lemon juice

Your nails should be back to normal in a matter of 2 minutes. If you want to save yourself from this inconvenience, simply wear a pair of gloves or use a brush to apply the mixture on your face.

Protect Your Hair

To prevent your hair from staining, gather it into a ponytail and wear a headband to protect your hairline. Ingredients, such as avocado, can stick to your scalp and can be difficult to remove afterwards.

Remember To Use The Right Yogurt

When adding yogurt to your facemask, ensure you choose the right kind. Always opt for plain, unflavored and unsweetened yogurt to reduce the risk of skin irritations. You may also use Greek yogurt if your wish.

Prevent Stains

There are many simple ways to prevent staining. Wear an old T-shirt to prevent facemask from dripping all over your T-shirt. It is also suggested you wear dark colored shirts if you don’t want to ruin your clothes.

Save Excess Facemask

Don’t want to waste excess facemask? Well, why don’t you save it for later? Store excess facemask in a small airtight container and keep it in your fridge. Most facemasks can last up to a week. However, throw it away immediately if it starts smelling funny or is starting to appear rotten.

Facemask can be stored and saved

You can actually save the leftover mask in the face for 7 days, so you don’t have to use it all at once.
