Turmeric is long known as a blood purifier and is known for its properties of giving a natural glow and radiance to the skin.
It has antibacterial and anti-ageing properties.It is used as ayurvedic herbs for skin diseases. It helps reduce blemishes, acne, inflammation of the skin, pigmentation and helps prevent many skin ailments. It also slows down the skin ageing process and acts as a healer of the skin.
To brighten skin, you can form a paste by mixing turmeric powder and rice powder together using raw milk and tomato juice.
Apply this paste on face and neck for 30 minutes. After that rinse off with lukewarm water. You can use also turmeric in the form of night cream. Prepare a paste of turmeric and milk or yoghurt. Apply this mixture on face and allow it to dry. Leave it overnight. In the morning wash off the mask using a gentle cleanser. Yorubas call it ata ile pupa.
I have been using Tumeric in my skincare routine for over six months. It is my go to product when making natural skincare products.
