You'd think after a certain age a girl would FINALLY be free from acne. But no, even at 27, I still occasionally experience breakouts and unfortunately I'm not the only one. In fact, I know a lot of Latina women who struggle with adult acne (especially after pregnancy) and it sucks!

A good friend of mine recently recommended I try an at-home spot treatment using turmeric. Her abuela has used it for years and even at her 70-something years of age still has a clear, radiant complexion. This ancient Indian spice is filled with natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatories that helps treat acne almost instantly. Amazing right? if you're struggling with pesky pimples try this awesome remedy now!

What you need:

A small bowl

1/2 a tablespoon of turmeric

1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil

What to do:

1. Mix the turmeric and coconut oil in a small bowl until it appears even.

2. Dip a cotton swap in it and apply it to your affected areas. Make sure to apply 15-20 minutes before going to bed and leave it on overnight.

3. In the morning rinse off with lukewarm water and follow with an oil-free moisturizer that contains SPF (to help prevent manchas from developing).

You should notice a difference right away!
