The Face of Turmeric : How to transform your skin


Turmeric Poweder is an ancient Indian powder favourite, that has recently caused a beauty TREND!!!

If you haven’t seen your favourite beauty blogger go on about its properties, you’ve clearly been getting enough beauty sleep!

The bright yellow powder made from grinding turmeric rhizomes and used for food flavouring, colouring and yes, our current favourite use; Cosmetic purposes!

Turmeric is rich in dietary fibre, iron, potassium, magnesium and vitamin B6. Besides these awesome properties, it helps clear, acne scars, decreases inflammation and reduces sebaceous gland oil secretion.


Here’s how to make an easy turmeric mask:

take 5 teaspoons of turmeric powder

10 spoons of water.

mix the ingredients till you get a yoghurt consistency. (use a metal spoon and wear an old T-shirt to prevent staining)

Apply for 20 minutes and rinse with warm water.

It may stain your skin yellow, but it will normalise after a day. Best applied at night.
