Honey and Turmeric Face Mask
The materials needed are simple and easily accessible.

Apply the face mask after washing your face with your face wash and dry cleaned with a towel. Turmeric stains fabrics easily so it is advisable you do this in the bathroom with a t-shirt you don’t really use anymore and be careful not to drop the paste in places where it would be difficult to remove, like on carpets for instance.

To apply the face mask, rub it on your face using gentle circular motions, massaging it softly into your skin. Wash your hands and leave the mask on your face for up to 20 minutes. Keep some tissue nearby to clean up honey as it will likely drip down your face.

Wash off the face mask with warm water after the 20 minutes has elapsed, wash your face one more time with your usual face wash and rinse finally with cold water to close the pores.

The anti-bacterial properties of the honey and the anti-inflammatory properties of the turmeric will both work together to draw impurities from your skin and reduce blemishes. Almost immediately you will begin to feel your skin getting smoother and softer. Keep using the face mask twice weekly and in no time, dark marks will begin to fade.
