Use of turmeric face mask
Turmeric powder has strong properties and can leave stains on things that get in contact with it. Therefore, while preparing the mask, make sure you wear gloves to prevent your hands and fingers turn yellow.
When you apply the mask to your face, make sure you do not apply it to the eye area, eyebrows, and hairline. Let the mask stay for 20 minutes. Then, wash it off with lukewarm water and dry your face with a towel.
When you wash your face, it may have a yellow-orange tint. To remove the discoloration, make sure you rinse your face twice with a cleanser. Finally, apply some face lotion to your skin. Use this face mask once or twice per week.
