Turmeric is one of my favorite straight from the kitchen ingredient when I have dark spots. It’s usually because I couldn’t help myself from popping a pimple. Now I want you to try out this amazing DIY Fade Away Scrub made with 3 simple ingredients.
- 1 Tablespoon of baking soda
- Sprinkle of turmeric (Don’t use too much or you will turn your face orange.)
- A squeeze of fresh lemon juice to create a paste
First, you will want to wash your face with our Happily Naturally Me Olive Oil Soap or Unscented Shea Butter Soap. It is highly recommended you use a glass bowl to mix your ingredients so you do not stain your plastic containers. Combine your ingredients in the order they are listed and remember to go light on the turmeric. You will slowly add in the lemon juice until a paste is formed. Don’t worry about the bubbles.
Once your turmeric and baking soda scrub is made, you will want to gently massage it into your face to exfoliate the dead stuff away. Be sure to use gloves to help protect your manicure from turning orange. The turmeric and lemon will help fade away those dark spots with continuous use. Let the mixture stay on your face for about 5 minutes before rinsing. Make sure you remove all of the residues and apply a moisturizer.
After one application you will discover a noticeable difference in the glow of your skin. Be sure to use this mixture 2-3 times per week until desired results are achieved. Oh, and of course you can use this as a spot treatment if you prefer.
