How to use it?

This remedy can be used as a spot treatment as follows:

  • Apply this home remedy directly to your pimples after washing your face.
  • You can leave this remedy for as less as 15 minutes to as long as 3 hours provided you do not get redness, itching, irritation or bumps. You can also try overnight treatment, especially for red or pus-filled big pimples on the back. After applying this remedy, cover with a micropore or a band-aid to avoid staining your clothes with turmeric.
  • Rinse off with warm water and pat dry with facial tissue. Do not use a towel because it might get stained with turmeric.
  • You can use it daily, a maximum of twice a day.
  • You can continue it safely until the pimples settle.

How to store?

This remedy can be stored for 1-3 weeks without the refrigerator, provided you keep it away from water.

What are the side effects?

  • Turmeric can stain clothes, so avoid wiping your face with a towel, sleeping or changing your clothes while this mixture is on your face.
  • Honey will feel sticky in the beginning, but later as the mixture dries your skin will feel stretched and sometimes uncomfortable.
  • It can irritate sensitive skin. Hence, this anti-acne spot treatment is best suited for non-sensitive skin types because it has many potent ingredients like neem, and tea tree oil.
