This Woman Went Overboard With Her DIY Turmeric Facial And Ended Up With Yellow Skin For Three Weeks. It’s Hilarious
There’s a lot of things I hate about getting my period: cramps, mood swings, bloatedness, etc. But most of all, I hate the fact that month after month, acne treat my face like some free-lodging site. As much as I feel tempted to, I have to restrain myself from popping them. And so I did extensive research online and found numerous DIY hacks to deal with pimples and zits. One that works for me, is a paste of turmeric and aloe vera gel—both being desi favourites. The method is simple. Once the paste is made, you simply apply it to the affected areas. However, not everyone can follow instructions, properly. This TikToker got greedy and applied a turmeric paste all over her face and her skin turned orangeish yellow for weeks. Yikes. She looked like a real-life character from the Simpsons. Mean but true.
TikTok user Lauren Rennie recently found out the hard way that when it comes to DIY hacks, knowing your ingredients is key. You see, she had an acne problem and for that, she chose to apply a turmeric paste. This is great but she just missed out on the fact that this is not when she must exercise her generosity. She used turmeric like face cream and now her face is bright orangy yellow. Sorry but it’s hilarious.

In a TikTok video she explained, “For like the last three weeks, I’ve had really bad skin. I’ve been breaking out in spots all over my face, but mainly across my lip line. So me being me, I’m researching ways to get rid of it and help my skin out. And I come across this DIY turmeric face mask that I could literally go downstairs and make right now in my kitchen. So I did. It’s got benefits like acne, wrinkles, and skin irritation. So I was like yeah let’s go.”
She said that after applying the paste on her face, she tried to wash it off but it was too late. Her skin had already changed colour. Her video has garnered more than a million views. I think it’s safe to say that this debacle has people extremely entertained. We know we are!
I think we’ve all learned something from this. When it comes to life hacks and DIY’s, stick to what you know. Or at least study your ingredients and their usage well. I guess, we can all laugh it off, hopefully even the orange gal. Thank God this is temporary!
