How to keep skin radiant during the wintertime: Tumeric and Honey Face Mask


Growing up, the honey and turmeric mask was always a tradition to me. At Bengali bridal showers, in our culture, we actually go through a process of “beautifying” the bride. Her guests come and put the turmeric mask all over her body and later she is given a formal shower where the guests drench her with buckets of water.

As I got older, I realized this tradition actually came with tons of health and beauty benefits.

The turmeric basic face mask is easy to make and acts as a moisturizer, exfoliator and reduces redness. It also brightens the skin and makes it look fresh and clean.

With winter around the corner, this is the perfect mask. The turmeric is known to give your face a glowy look which many of us lose when we get less sun. Additionally, the honey is an amazing agent that seals in moisture and keeps your skin feeling as soft as a baby’s bottom. This is perfect since the weather change this time of year tends to cause a lot of dryness in skin.


  • All natural
  • Inexpensive, all ingredients can be found in your kitchen.
  • Both honey and turmeric are anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory so they are amazing at treating acne, eczema, rosacea.
  • It promotes a lot of healing and anti-aging.


  • This mask stains anything around you. Be very careful and ready to make a bit of a mess when making this mask.




1 teaspoon of turmeric

1 teaspoon of raw organic honey

Optional ingredients:

The process is very simple:

  1. Prepare your teaspoon of turmeric and teaspoon of honey
  2. Mix ingredients until the consistency is like a paste
  3. Apply the mask on your face and leave on for 30 minutes.
  4. Rinse off with a gentle cleanser.
  5. Repeat once a month, and more often if you have acne prone skin

@usha no I did not add any additional ingredients.

I plan to do a post soon to touch base on this initial mask and discuss the other options

@marissa yes this is actually true. I would say my hair has definitely thinned out over the years.

@denise it does leave a stain however if its too intense I use toners to take it out. Clean and Clear has some good ones i’ve used for this


Did you put the optional ingridents as well?


I have heard that turmeric masks reduce facial hair growth. Have you heard this/ found this to be true?


Since the tumeric stains anything in sight will it leave a temporary orange hue on your skin? I’m not that fair but my skin does seem to pick up pigments easily.
