So you've undoubtedly heard the amazing benefits of turmeric, but do you know how to actually use it? People are now taking turmeric in a pill form combined with black pepper, but you can just as well use it in its pure form directly over your skin. Of course, ingesting turmeric has so many more benefits that work from the inside out, but for the purpose of this post, we shall talk about using turmeric topically. So here is how to use turmeric to get rid of a pimple!
Using Turmeric to Get Rid of a Pimple
Turmeric contains a great deal of anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, so it's perfect to use whenever you have a pimple…or more!
Simply turning the turmeric into a paste using water is really all you need. Of course, you can always substitute water for honey or milk to make your potion even stronger. But like I said, turmeric already contains a very large amount of anti-oxidants therefore it really isn't needed. You can adjust this recipe accordingly. The below recipe is for spot treatments, but if you wanted to apply it to your entire face as a mask, simply adjust the quantities.
- 1 tsp turmeric
- few drops of water (adjust accordingly to form a paste)
Mix turmeric and water until it forms a paste that can be easily applied to skin. Using your finger, apply to a cleansed face on trouble areas. I like to leave mine on overnight, but you can also leave it on for 20-30 minutes. Wash it off, and follow up with a moisturizer.
Turmeric cats quickly and therefore within just 1 or 2 uses, you should see the pimple either completely disappearing or minimizing greatly in size!
