Turmeric is one of nature's best ingredients you can use on the skin to treat and get rid of multiple skin problems. Turmeric is a mild antiseptic ingredient that helps in healing your skin from any infection too.

Due to its high content of anti-fungal properties and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is considered to be the best cure to treat even the biggest of skin problems. This bright-yellow powder is often mixed with milk or rose water and then applied directly on to the face.

For sensitive skin, turmeric can be mixed with a small portion of yoghurt, as the latter aids in soothing the skin. Turmeric is especially used to treat acne, eczema, redness, inflammation, dark spots or under eye circles, unwanted facial hair, wrinkles and much more.
