These DIY face masks are great because they help get rid of dark spots from your face quickly. As we all know, dark spots can be a painful reminder of our not-so-fun experience with pimples or acne. And while we would naturally look towards a concealer as the quick solution to this problem. While there is absolutely no problem with using a concealer when necessary, we all know there is nothing as “fantabulous” as not having to feel the pressure or need to cover up as a necessity. We want to feel great walking out of the door as we are sometimes and still feel confident and presentable.

While dark spots are primarily caused by acne or pimple, dark spots can also be caused by the overproduction of melanin. Turmeric powder is great for preventing the overproduction of melanin while helping fade dark spots without bleaching your skin.
