India’s golden spice turmeric is a lot more than just a kitchen staple. Apart from adding flavour to your curry, this spice is also capable of improving your skin quality. A trusted, ancient remedy for almost all your skin woes, haldi is one healthy skin habit.
Here is how you can include it in your skin care regimen.
Turmeric with lemon juice
Lemon juice has citric acid which works as a natural bleach that helps lighten scars and dark spots. Turmeric on the other hand has anti-inflammatory properties which help control breakouts and acne. A face pack combination of the two will lighten your skin tone and give you spot-free skin.
Take half a teaspoon of both ingredients and mix in some rose water to create a smooth but thick paste. Apply the mask onto your face, let it dry and wash off in 20 mins for a better complexion.
Turmeric with curd
Turmeric and raw milk or curd together can help your skin fight free radicals that can damage your skin. Curd or raw milk are both rich in lactic acid and hydroxy acid which help improve your complexion and make your skin soft and radiant.
Together, they make a skin pack that will give you radiant, soft and younger-looking skin.
Turmeric with honey
Honey is a power ingredient as far as skin is concerned—it is naturally antibacterial, works to treat acne and moisturises and soothes skin. When mixed with turmeric, they make a versatile face pack that will leave your skin glowing.
Turmeric with rose water
This simple mixture of turmeric and rose water is just as capable of giving you radiant, replenished skin as any other face pack combination in this list. Powered by antioxidants, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric will help heal your breakouts and give you an even skin tone.
Turmeric with gram flour and milk
Besan or gram flour has anti-microbial properties which makes it great at cleansing your skin from deep within. When mixed with haldi and milk, besan helps fight acne, skin infections, removes tan and leaves your skin feeling soft and supple.
