Warning: Some people may be allergic to turmeric. If you are allergic, direct skin contact can cause irritation, redness, and swelling. Test turmeric on your forearm, applying a dime-sized amount and waiting 24 to 48 hours to see if you react before using on your face. Do not use turmeric on your skin if you are allergic to the spice in food.

  1. Thank you for such a nice article. I will link back from my blog to your
    article. I would like to add a point as well. Though it may work more slowly to actually prevent
    acne, it can reduce inflammation and redness related to
    acne overnight.
