Cleansing is the most important part of a daily beauty regime. After all, it helps to get rid of dirt and pollution and allows the skin to breathe. Neglecting it can lead to skin issues. So, in order to keep your skin glowing all the time, what’s better than cleansing your face early in the morning with a natural facial cleanser? Well, we are talking about DIY turmeric face cleansers, which are herbal, pure, and natural. They can deep cleanse the skin, without causing any side effects. 

Turmeric or haldi has a number of skin benefits, because of its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties. The DIY turmeric face cleansers can thoroughly cleanse your skin, leaving it glowing and healthy. 

Try these DIY turmeric face cleansers for best results:
1. Turmeric and milk

Turmeric, when mixed with milk and applied to the skin, helps fight free radicals that damage your skin. On one hand, turmeric helps to brighten your skin, prevent hyperpigmentation, and get rid of acne and scars. On the other hand, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that are present in milk exfoliate the dead cells in the skin, leaving your skin moisturised and healthy-looking.

  1. Mix turmeric and milk in a bowl, until you get a paste-like consistency.
  2. Keep it in the fridge to cool for five minutes. 
  3. Wash your face properly. 
  4. Apply the mixture on your face and neck, and massage it on the skin for four to five minutes. It will allow your skin to absorb it.
  5. Now, allow it to sit for only two minutes.
  6. Wash it away with lukewarm water, and pat it dry. Avoid using soap, because it might strip your skin off moisturise. 
2. Turmeric and orange peel

The combination of turmeric and orange peel is the easiest cleanser you can make and use at home. Turmeric has antiseptic and antibacterial properties that can help your skin in healing from scars, cuts, and wounds. And orange peels are rich in vitamin C and loaded with antioxidants. Together, these two ingredients can add a natural glow to your skin.
