Woman Left With Orange Skin After Giving Herself A Turmeric Facial

A woman has managed to turn her entire face orange by giving herself a turmeric facial, which she read helps with tackling acne. 

The TikTok beauty fan, known only as Lauren, was left horrified when she removed the homemade face mask and revealed her luminous skin.

@laurenjrennieIt’s the ✨chaos✨ for me, how’s your Friday? ##fyp ##scottishtiktok ##funny♬ Oh No – Kreepa

She jumped on social media to document the hilarious mishap, saying: “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.

“And I really don’t want to squeeze them because it’s so so sore.

“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 for like acne, wrinkles and skin irritation. So I was like yeah let’s go.”

Flashing her hands at the camera, she continued: “But the thing is I’ve just applied it to my face and my entire hand has turned yellow.

“When I take this off I’m going to resemble the moon.”

Lauren then washed the mixture off her face and shared the results with her followers. She added that her sister had ‘laughed in disgust’ at her error.

Hoping she’d made a mistake and it wouldn’t be too difficult to remove, she said: “I’m literally going to the supermarket with my dad tonight. I’m really hoping that makeup’s going to cover this.”

Scrubbing her face in defeat, she added: “This is the best it’s going to get.”

To ‘distract’ from her face, Lauren wore a yellow top and applied some makeup. She told her followers that she was ‘kicking herself’ for forgetting turmeric is used as a dye.

After watching the clip, one person joked: “You really do be glowing.”

Another added: “That is one of the best natural dyes… I’m surprised it came off at all!”
