Turmeric is a super-spice which has been used for centuries for a long list of skin problems. According to Ayurveda regular use of turmeric in skin care can give you glowing, radiant, problem-free skin so why don’t you give it a try. It’s an excellent skin exfoliator, removing dead skin cells and impurities in addition to maintaining the natural pH balance and giving it a healthy glow.
Anything that’s applied on the skin gets absorbed into the blood stream after 20 minutes so it’s no wonder the “yellow gold” as the Indians call it, can do wonders for our complexion. Use this amazing turmeric mask to enhance your beauty and improve your skin’s quality.
Make Your Own Turmeric Skin Exfoliator
Here’s what you’ll need to prepare this simple turmeric mask which works well for all skin types:
- 1 tbsp. turmeric
- 2 tbsp. flour (use oatmeal for vata, chickpea for pitta and barley for kapha).
Mix the ingredients and add a bit of water to create a paste. Apply the mixture on your face, gently rubbing it in for 2 minutes. Rinse with water.
If you have oily skin, add some coriander powder, lavender blossom, or a few drops of lime.
If you have dry skin you can add some elderly blossom.
If you have normal skin add some rose powder for an extra healthy glow.
It’s best if you do this treatment before you shower so that you can easily remove the yellow stains from the turmeric.
