Turmeric is one of the best ingredients you can apply on your skin. It is an ancient ingredient which has been used for a number of years. In yester years, people used turmeric to get rid of facial hair as well as improve their skin tone.
Indians still use this ingredient for the same purpose, and it will be carried forth to the next generation. This golden ingredient is often mixed with other kitchen elements like rose water and milk, to give your skin a better feel.
But according to experts, water is the best factor you can add to turmeric to make a facial paste. On the other hand, it is often seen that people make a lot of mistakes while applying a turmeric facial mask. If you take a look at some of these mistakes, we are sure that you will be shell-shocked! Here are some of the mistakes we all make while applying turmeric on skin:
We Mix Unnecessary Ingredients
Since turmeric is a powerful ingredient, you should be careful about the ingredients you mix. Rose water, milk and water are three elements which should be added to turmeric to make a facial paste.
We Tend To Keep It On Longer
Never allow a face pack to be on your skin for more than 20 minutes. We often make this mistake of keeping the paste for an hour or so, which thus leaves behind a yellow tint.
We Never Rinse Well
One of the common mistakes we make when applying turmeric is forgetting to wash the paste from all corners of your face. After 15 minutes of application, rinse your face with cold or temperature water and pat dry with soft towel.
We Apply The Paste Unevenly
Do you apply the paste on your own or do you get it done by a professional. Whatever way you follow, make sure that you apply the turmeric paste evenly on your skin as it makes a difference.
We Avoid The Neck Region
When applying turneric or any other facial pack, don’t forget to tone the pack evenly on your neck as well. You can also apply the pack over the shoulders. Applying it only on the face and leaving out the neck will make your skin look uneven in colour.
We Always Mix It With Water
As mentioned earlier, we tend to mix a lot of unnecessary ingredients to make a turmeric paste. Water is the best element you can use as it helps to give you a perfect after glow and it also nourishes the skin.
We Tend To Use Soap
Ditch the soap! You should never use soap on your skin after applying a face pack. This is another mistake we make!
