Why turmeric?? Because turmeric has been used for centuries to treat acne, blackheads, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation. It helps heal and prevent dry skin, slows the aging process, diminishes wrinkles, keeps skin supple and improveselasticity. It's used daily by East Indian women as a facial cleanser and exfoliant. So adding coconut oil only seems logical! You want it to be a touch grainy so add more turmeric than oil. Leave on 10-20 minutes & rinse & wipe with lukewarm water. Staining could occur if left on longer or used daily so make this a treat for your skin!
