Golden Glow: DIY Turmeric and Honey Face Mask for Radiant Skin

Are you looking for a natural, Ayurvedic-inspired skincare solution that will leave your skin feeling soft, hydrated, and glowing? Look no further than this simple yet effective DIY Turmeric and Honey Face Mask

At Saabuni, we're passionate about harnessing the power of natural ingredients, and this mask perfectly aligns with our commitment to providing delightful, pampering experiences for our customers.

Turmeric, the golden spice that's been a staple in Ayurvedic medicine for centuries, is renowned for its anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. When combined with the natural humectant and antibacterial properties of raw honey, you've got a powerhouse duo that can transform your skin. And if you're looking for an extra boost of hydration and gentle exfoliation, a dollop of plain yoghurt can take this mask to the next level. It's a go-to for a lot of Indian Bollywood actresses such as Priyanka Chopra Jonas.

Before we dive into the recipe, let's explore why these ingredients are so beneficial for your skin...


This vibrant yellow spice is a skincare superstar. Its active compound, curcumin, provides powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It can help soothe irritated skin, reduce redness, and even-out skin tone. Some studies suggest that turmeric may also have anti-aging properties, helping to keep your skin looking youthful and radiant. We've incorporated Turmeric into our Soap Bars, have a peek below.


Raw honey is nature's moisturiser. It acts as a natural humectant, drawing moisture into the skin and helping to keep it hydrated. But that's not all – honey also has antibacterial properties, making it an excellent ingredient for those prone to breakouts. It can help cleanse the skin while nourishing it at the same time.


If you choose to add yoghurt to your mask, you're in for a treat. Yogurt contains lactic acid, a gentle alpha-hydroxy acid (AHA) that can help exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing brighter, smoother skin underneath. It's also incredibly moisturising, making it perfect for those with dry or sensitive skin.

Now that you're familiar with the star ingredients, let's get to the recipe!

Golden Glow Turmeric and Honey Face Mask Recipe

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Application Time: 10-15 minutes

Total Time: 15-20 minutes


  • 1 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey
  • 1 teaspoon plain yoghurt (optional, for added moisture)


Step 1. In a small bowl, combine the turmeric powder and raw honey. Mix well until you have a smooth, golden paste.

Step 2 - If you're opting for extra hydration, add the plain yoghurt and mix thoroughly. The yoghurt will give the mask a creamier consistency and boost its moisturising properties.

Step 3 - Before applying the mask, cleanse your face with your favourite gentle cleanser and pat dry.

Step 4 - Using clean fingers or a face mask brush, apply the mixture evenly to your face, avoiding the delicate eye area. Be careful not to get the mask on your clothes, as turmeric can stain.

Step 5 - Relax and let the mask work its magic for 10-15 minutes. This is the perfect time to practice some deep breathing or meditation – self-care is about nourishing both your skin and your mind!

Now relax...

Step 6 - After 10-15 minutes, rinse the mask off with warm water. Gently massage your skin in circular motions as you rinse to get a light exfoliating effect.

Step 7 - Pat your face dry with a clean towel. Be aware that the turmeric might temporarily give your skin a slight yellow tint – don't worry, this will fade quickly.

Step 8 - Follow up with our Illuminating Face Serum and Jasmine Moisturiser to lock in all the goodness from the mask.

Pro Tips

For best results, use this mask once or twice a week. You should start to notice softer, more radiant skin after just a few applications.

If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test before applying the mask to your entire face.

For an extra cooling effect, try refrigerating the mask for a few minutes before applying.

Don't forget to follow up with sunscreen if you're heading outside, as some of the ingredients can make your skin more sensitive to UV rays.

At Saabuni, we believe that the best skincare doesn't have to be complicated. This simple, natural face mask is a testament to the power of Ayurvedic ingredients and aligns perfectly with our philosophy of providing effective, natural skincare solutions.

Remember, consistency is key in any skincare routine. While this mask can provide immediate results, leaving your skin feeling soft and glowing, regular use will help you achieve long-lasting benefits. 

So why not make this Golden Glow Turmeric and Honey Face Mask a regular part of your self-care routine?
