In case you cannot find honey and lemon juice, you may use yogurt as an alternative. Here are some of the benefits that you should expect when you use this DIY Turmeric Mask.
Turmeric contains a high dose of antioxidant which normalizes the amount of free radicals in our skin and will slow down the damage on our skin cell. This is also generally used as an exfoliant which can improve the texture of our skin surface. In addition, it also contains anti-inflammatory properties that can treat different skin condition like eczema, psoriasis, dry skin and acne. It can also help in improving our skin tone and eliminate hyper pigmentation. Studies show that it also has the power to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
Honey is a mild ingredient that will feel very comfortable on our skin. Once you wash it on your face, your skin will stay moisturized. It is also a natural antibacterial ingredient. Remember that most skin irritation such as blemishes and acne are caused by bacteria. Using a chemical solution for your acne can aggravate the condition.

Lemon juice has antifungal and antibacterial property that makes them a powerful solution against acne and blackheads. Just like the turmeric, it can also treat skin pigmentation. The citric acid found in the lemon is mild on our skin that can help in diminishing the presence of pigmentation. It can also be used as a solution for oily skins.

Do this on a regular basis, and after a few weeks, you will notice a significant change on the quality of your skin.
