Turmeric Acne Treatment


By Tiffany Moore

Are you fed up with expensive acne treatment products that don't work and looking for home remedies to remove and cure acne naturally once and for all? Perhaps all you need is turmeric.


Whether taken internally or applied directly on affected skin, turmeric is a very helpful herb that will get rid of acne fast and give you a clear skin complexion without having to spend a lot of money on acne products and facials.



How Does Turmeric Help Acne Healing?

Curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric contains powerful antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties that help restore your skin's natural balance while killing the harmful bacteria that cause blackheads, pimples and acne. With turmeric, you can have healthy, glowing skin that is free of blemishes and marks in no time!


Turmeric Milk Acne Cure

When taken internally with warm milk, turmeric not only strengthens your immune system but also very effective in drying out acne and removing blemishes. Dissolve 1 teaspoon of turmeric in a glass of warm milk. Stir well so that the color turns yellow. Drink the turmeric concoction once a day, preferably before you go to bed.



Turmeric Paste (Face Mask Recipes) to Heal Acne Naturally

1. You can also use turmeric externally on acne and the surrounding skin to cure acne fast naturally. Turmeric face pack will help reduce the possibility of acne scars as well.  You'll need 1-2 teaspoons of fresh milk and 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder. Mix all ingredients thoroughly to get a creamy paste.

Cover the acne area completely with the turmeric paste, and leave it to work for at least 10 minutes. Wash the turmeric facial mask off with warm water, pat dry and then apply an oil-free moisturizer. Take note that external application of turmeric can stain your skin temporarily. Make sure to use a mild face wash, suitable for your skin type, to wash the turmeric paste off completely.


If you want a natural remedy to remove turmeric stains on skin, simply rub a slice of lemon on your face gently, using circular motions. Rinse your face with lukewarm water.




2. Another excellent turmeric face mask recipe for acne is to dissolve 1 teaspoon sandalwood powder and 1 teaspoon turmeric with a little milk. This is one of the best home remedies for acne, used routinely by many Indian women to keep the skin clear and healthy.




3. Turmeric powder and neem oil is also effective for acne treatment. Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric in a few drops of neem oil, and apply it over acne inflammation spots. Both turmeric and neem have antiseptic properties which helps in controlling acne inflammation.


Use the turmeric paste once a day and you'll notice a huge improvement in the size of acne. Generally speaking, it takes about a couple of weeks for acne to go away completely without leaving a spot and your skin won't feel dry or flaky.




In addition to healing acne and spots, turmeric has skin lightening and skin whitening effects. So when you use a face pack made of turmeric regularly, you can expect lighter and brighter glowing skin tone over time.


Turmeric is available to buy in powder form at most Asian grocery stores, and is commonly stored in jars, found in the section for herbs and spices. You can also purchase turmeric capsules in your local drugstores or online, but be sure to read all the ingredients on the packaging.
