DIY All-Natural Turmeric Face Mask for Clear, Bright, Wrinkle-Free & Acne-Free Skin

One of my go-to DIY face masks is made using benefit-rich turmeric. Turmeric is a spice that comes from the turmeric plant found in Southern Asia. For hundreds of years, people around the world have used turmeric for its healing properties as well as its cosmetic benefits. The bright, yellow-orange spice gets its health benefits primarily because of curcumin, a bioactive component that has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. While modern scientific research is just beginning to study the positive impact of turmeric, many believe that it has several beneficial uses for skin.
