Turmeric is a chief ingredient in Indian culinary tradition, this yellow spice, which is part of the ginger family, is used to make curry.

Not only it is used to add colour and taste to our food but also as a cosmetic. Turmeric has been used as beauty product over the centuries.

It contains numerous antioxidants, giving you an amazing skin and hair.

Here are some properties of turmeric that you can use to cure five common problems and get a flawless skin.

  • Anti aging

Turmeric provides a great relief to aging skin. Turmeric paste and  powder, for many years, have been a part of the beauty regimen.

Apply over the face and body and then wait till it dries off. Then bathe without using any soap or body wash. For the face, you should scrub in circular motion.

  • Prevents wrinkles

You can use turmeric in combination with other ingredients to manage your wrinkle woes.

Add raw milk and tomato juice to rice powder and turmeric powder. Apply the paste and let it stay until it dries. Lactic acid present in milk will help peel off the dead skin cells.

You can add turmeric powder in buttermilk and sugarcane juice. This will work the best for dark circles and wrinkles.

Turmeric-honey paste can be applied on the face and neck to help exfoliate skin and keep a check on pores.
