How to use Turmeric in your beauty routine

You might have already tried a variety of things to cope with skin problems like acne, wrinkle, scars and dark circles and you’ve never been satisfied with the results.
Now it’s time to take some decided steps towards permanent skin beauty!

The keyword is: Turmeric

This yellow powder has rich antioxidant property and kills acne causing bacteria. Thanks to its anti-inflammatory effect, turmeric may help to reduce inflammation and pain. Its active ingredient curcumin is one of nature’s most powerful anti-inflammatory herbs that keeps inflammation down and the immune system healthy. In addition, curcumin has a protective effect on the liver and also has the ability to suppress free radicals that can cause mutation in our DNA. According to research, curcumin may also prevent or slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease since it blocks the formation of beta-amyloid, the substance responsible for the plaques that slowly inhibit cerebral function in this serious disorder.
Besides its incredible effect on our health, Turmeric proves to be a very effective acne treatment, as well as removes scares, reduces wrinkles and dark circles.

It sounds too good to be true, right?

Due to its strong skin-rejuvenating benefit, with its amazing healing, conditioning and repairing properties, Turmeric keeps your skin clear and line-free too.

You can use it as an all-natural, homemade facial mask that pampers your skin and leaves it looking and feeling healthier. Furthermore, these homemade remedies don’t go over your budget and truly claim to be natural formula.

Most often we enjoy Turmeric when flavouring Asian dishes.

Let’s see the Turmeric-secret

To tell the truth, I love to use face masks. They’re easy to apply, fun to use and what is more, they are great at delivering results. All you need are: a bowl, a clean towel, a make up brush, freshly washed and dried face and the secret ingredients, namely: Turmeric.

Chickpea-Turmeric mask for smooth skin
2 tablespoons of chickpea flour
1 tablespoon of Turmeric powder
1 tablespoon of honey
Add a few drops of milk or water to turn the mask into a thick orange paste. Apply it to your clean face for 20 minutes, finally wash it off with lukewarm water.

Mask for oily and acne-prone skin
1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder
2 teaspoons of Honey
A few drops of milk
Mix them into a paste and apply it to your clean face for 20 minutes, finally wash it off with lukewarm water.

Turmeric detox mask
1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder
Half teaspoon of Lemon
1 teaspoon of Honey
A few drops of milk to make it creamy
Apply this mixture to your freshly washed skin for 20 minutes, finally wash it off with lukewarm water.

The feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa

Turmeric-yoghurt mask
1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder
1 teaspoon of Yoghurt
1 teaspoon of Honey
A few drops of oil -olive, argan, coconut -according to your needs.
Create a mixture and apply it to your freshly washed skin for 20 minutes, finally wash it off with lukewarm water.

Witch hazel-Turmeric mask
1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder
1 teaspoon of Witch hazel
Half teaspoon of Honey
Mix them into a paste and apply it to your clean face for 20 minutes, finally wash it off with lukewarm water.

Use the mask that fits to your skin-type once a week and the result will be amazing. As a matter of fact, it leaves you with clear, clean, soft and revived skin. No swelling, no redness, also the red marks left from old spots will be less noticeable and your skin complexion goes brighter as well.

Even you are sceptical, it is worth a try

Regular face masks help to keep your skin surface clean not to mention that these masks are quite therapeutic. Besides they relax your mind and spirit, you can enjoy the comfort of your own home.

“These homemade remedies don’t go over your budget and truly claim to be natural formula.”

To tell the truth, Turmeric mask won’t stain your face if your skin is tanned enough, but if you are pale I would recommend being prepared for that. For the same reason, separate a towel too for Turmeric-treatment.

If you are sensitive for honey or any other additive leave it out of the mixture and feel free to experiment with the ingredients until you find a combination that suits your need. If your skin condition does not improve after a period of time, Turmeric is probably not for you. 

Always use unrefined, organic and fair trade products. Take care of your health and our environment. Always take allergy test – if you have reaction avoid these ingredients.

Love,
Auntie
