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 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.

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.
