Turmeric is known as the King of Spices in an Indian cuisine. However, it also has innumerable benefits on the skin and overall health. It is even said that drinking turmeric milk every day can cure you of many diseases, which you may be suffering from.
Turmeric has been widely used for beauty purposes in India, since centuries. It is even used as a mask for brides to make their skin glow and look radiant.
Currently, there are several skin problems that women usually have to tackle with like pigmentation, scars leftover from pimples, sun damage and, of course, early signs of ageing.
And due to the fast-paced life we are living, dark circles and fine lines under the eyes are quick to follow us.
Wouldn't it be great if there were some magical creams that could give us a flawless skin?
But we don't want too many chemicals to touch our faces, isn't it? So, the next time you see a cream or lotion claiming to sort out all your skin problems, I'd suggest you ignore them and just go and look in your kitchen instead.
You'd be surprised at the amazing benefits you can get from ingredients you have readily available at home. After all, our ancestors did not have access to all the fancy products we have today, and yet they managed to look a lot better than us!
So, here is a perfect turmeric face pack that can solve multiple skin issues and also keep them at bay, have a look.
You Will Need:
- 2 tablespoons of chickpea flour (besan)
- Half a teaspoon of turmeric
- 1 teaspoon of almond oil
Method Of Preparation & Application:
In a container, add two tablespoons of besan and add the turmeric powder to it. Then, add the almond oil and mix it slightly. To further mix it, add milk.
The milk should be added till a paste like consistency is achieved. But do not add too much milk, or else it might get runny. You should have a consistency that looks a little like a pudding (a smooth paste).
Apply this mixture evenly all over your face and even the neck, if you wish. Let it dry for around 20 minutes, then wash it with cold water.
Don't worry if you have some of the paste left over, as it can be stored for about a week and then used later.
You may notice a slight yellow tinge on your skin after using this, especially if your skin tone is very light. Don't worry about it, it'll go away and it is only the stain that is left from the turmeric.
With regular usage, this face pack will reduce your dark spots, decrease the signs of ageing and even reduce your dark circles.
So, do give this face pack a try. It works!
