1.Turmeric Treats Acne
Acne is one of the most common skin concerns that requires special care and attention. Over-the-counter prescriptions or skincare products for acne treatments may sometimes cause irritation or inflammation especially if you have sensitive skin.
While there are a zillion treatments for acne out there, natural ingredients are your safest bet.
One of the miracle ingredients that help fight acne is turmeric. With its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric benefits your skin by keeping bacteria from spreading and by reducing the redness and swelling of the blemish
2. Turmeric remove dark circle
The primary reasons behind dark circles are hereditary, lack of sleep, pigmentation, over-exposure to the sun, or even rubbing or scratching the eyes. I know waking up with tired-looking, pesky under-eye bags can be a big put-off. Luckily, you have turmeric.
Turmeric, being a lightning and anti-inflammatory agent, helps in reducing the appearance of dark circles. It also stimulates blood circulation, which in turn helps in reducing puffiness
3.Turmeric Lightens scars and marks
To clear scars caused by accidents, roast turmeric powder (not packed turmeric available in markets but turmeric used on face) and mix it with desi ghee. Apply this gently on your scars with the help of your fingertips. Wash this off in about 20 minutes.
4.Turmeric Moisturizes dry skin
Dryness can make your skin look dull and dehydrated. And, the problem can worsen during the winter months because the cold winds tend to make your dry skin look drier.
Apart from moisturising enough all through the day using a rich body lotion, it’s also important to give your skin extra TLC. Did you know that turmeric benefits the skin by alleviating symptoms of dryness? This miracle ingredient which is found in almost every household, deeply hydrates and nourishes the skin and speeds up the process of removing dead skin cells
5.Turmeric prevents early sign of ageing
The curcumin compound present in turmeric has strong antioxidant properties that prevents free radical production which in turn controls ageing by protecting skin cells from damage.
6.Turmeric Reduce the stretch Marks
It turns out that curcumin—the active ingredient in this yellow spice—can also treat stretch marks when applied to the skin. How To Use: Mix turmeric powder or crushed turmeric root into water, lemon juice, or coconut oil to form a paste. Apply on stretch marks once or twice a day.
7.Turmeric Brighten the skin
Who doesn’t like to have a naturally glowing skin? However, the environmental pollution and day-to-day stressors can leave your skin feeling dull. Does your skin lack glow and luster? Turmeric to the rescue. The anti-inflammatory and antioxidants present in it will help in reviving your skin by bringing out its natural glow
How to use it:
Use it as a face cleanser: Gram flour (aka besan flour, chickpea flour, and garbanzo flour) is often used in homemade recipes with turmeric, to cleanse and exfoliate the face. Mix it (or rice flour) with turmeric powder in equal proportions.
Add raw or soy milk (or yogurt) to a teaspoon of chickpea/turmeric powder to make a paste. Milk contains lactic acid, which works to improve skin’s texture by sloughing off dead skin cells, replenishing moisture, and rejuvenating the complexion. Apply evenly to the face and leave on for about 10-15 minutes. Wash the mask off with warm water.
