According to the internet, the base ingredients for this ginger honey turmeric face mask can also serve as an amazing latte. I am slightly intrigued by that idea; if I decide to try it, I’ll definitely post about it.
Lately, I’ve been experimenting with fresh ginger beauty treatments for both my hair and skin. I started doing homemade turmeric face masks this spring to help treat the hyperpigmentation on my face. I still use Aztec Indian healing clay masks to keep my acne scars in check, but I like this mask in particular because the ingredients are very soothing and leave my skin super soft and glowy.

How to Get the Juice Out of Ginger Root
You can buy fresh ginger juice at most natural food markets. It’s cheapest to buy the root and juice it yourself. The ideal way to do that is to use a juicer or food processor to get the juice out of the ginger root. I used a food grater to shred the ginger and squeeze the juice out through a cloth. I think a garlic press could work too.
- 1 teaspoon ground turmeric powder
- 1 teaspoon fresh ginger juice
- 1/4 teaspoon honey
Put the turmeric powder, fresh ginger, and honey in a bowl and mix into a smooth paste. Spread the mixture over clean, damp skin. After 10 minutes, wash the mask off with a cloth. The mask leaves a slight yellow tinge to the skin that eventually fades.
