My skin is always in desperate need of an overhaul during the hot, sticky summer months. So I turn to a tried and true remedy: turmeric.

The powerful root packs a plethora of skin-boosting nutrients and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic beauty remedies. In fact, many women use a mixture of turmeric and sunflower oil on their skin to brighten complexions in the days leading up to their weddings.

It’s extraordinarily anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, antibacterial and anti-aging, all of which makes it an excellent ingredient for a DIY face mask! This recipe is a new twist on an ancient remedy and luckily, the ingredients are totally affordable and can be found at an Indian grocer or online.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons besan flour (chickpea flour)
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • yogurt, coconut milk or water (just enough to form a paste)

Preparation Gently wash face with warm water to open up pores. Pat dry. Mix the ingredients thoroughly in a small bowl. Using clean fingertips, place a thin layer of the mask on your face. Be careful to avoid your eyes, eyebrows and mouth. Let the mask sit for 10-15 minutes, or until it dries completely. Use a washcloth to remove the mask, then apply a light moisturizer to lock in all the goodness. If you have a fair complexion, the turmeric may leave behind a faint hue. Don’t worry! A sugar scrub will remove it and leave your skin exfoliated, a bonus!turmeric benefits
