Turmeric or ‘haldi’ is not only used as a spice to add colour and taste to the food but is also widely considered as a cosmetic. Turmeric is known for its antiseptic properties and is used to make face masks and body scrubs. Listed below are some very easy home remedies that you can prepare using turmeric to get flawless and glowing skin.
Acne and oil control
Prepare a mixture of turmeric powder, sandalwood paste, orange juice, a few drops of rose water and mix well. Now apply this mixture evenly over the face and wash it off with cold water once it has dried. Apply daily to lighten acne spots and control oily skin.
Turmeric improves skin elasticity
Turmeric helps in keeping your skin looking young and fresh as it contains many antioxidants which help in stimulating new cell growth and hence keeping the skin’s elasticity intact.
Controlling facial hair
