Before we get into the recipe, let's take a look at WHY this mask works!

Turmeric is not just for cooking – it has some amazing skin benefits:

  • Reduces redness
  • Treats breakouts
  • Erases dark spots, scars, and age spots
  • Reduces scarring and hyperpigmentation
  • Helps with psoriasis and eczema
  • Brightens and tones
  • Anti-inflammatory

Lemons are natural bleaching agents and are great tools to use against scars, dark spots, and stains:

  • Anti-bacterial
  • Reduces and prevents breakouts
  • Cleansing
  • Skin lightener
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Brightens skin

You'll Need:

  • 3 tbsp rolled oats (ground up into oat flour)
  • 1 tbsp manuka honey (but you can also use regular honey)
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • a squeeze of fresh lemon juice


  1. In a bowl, mix all ingredients together until well combined.
  2. Apply to clean skin and leave on for 15-20 minutes.
  3. Rinse off and pat dry.

Apply this mask 3 times a week to reduce scars, dark spots, and stains. Use consistently for 1 or 2 months until you start to see fading. Once scars and spots start to fade, use the mask just once a week.
