This is my favorite mask to make every week (or more like every few weeks from how crazy life can get). It’s really simple and quick to make (which is perfect for someone like me) and it’s super effective. Now, I do want to warn, like any DIY remedy, you will not see results IMMEDIATELY. Natural remedies do not work like that, it takes time to achieve the desired effect. I have been doing this mask for over a year, which is why I feel so confident sharing this recipe today.

Let’s get to know our main ingredients a bit, so you can understand why they work so well.



Now that we know the benefits of the mask, let’s get into recipes and final notes.

This is the mask I normally make. Please remember there is no set measurement for these ingredients since it varies per person. Try to keep your formula consistency think otherwise it will drip over your clothes and stain them.



  1. Mix the two main ingredients together in a facial bowl
  2. Add your 5-6 drops of essential oil (I prefer lemon because I do these masks at night lemon is the perfect addition to help brighten your acne scars and even skin tone)
  3. Mix well
  4. Cleanse face with a cleanser appropriate for your skin type
  5. Apply to face with an application brush (this allows you to apply a thin even layer, without contaminating the mixture or your skin with any bacteria on your fingertips or below your fingernails)
  6. Leave mask on for 20-30 minutes
  7. Rinse thoroughly with warm water (Remember any remaining turmeric on your face will stain your towel)
  8. Follow with your normal facial routine (Ex. toner, serum, moisturizer, eye gel)
