Turmeric is a super-spice that is typically used in Asian cooking, but also has been used in Ayurveda and Chinese medicine as a healing herb. It has been used for cancer, fibromyalgia, depression, diabetes, Crohn’s disease, liver problems, and also for various skin ailments including the signs of aging. When applied to the skin, the benefits can be far beyond anything you ever imagined, and we have provided an easy recipe that will give you quick and real results.

Aging is a process that simply cannot be avoided, but we do have the choice of healthy aging. Turmeric contains various properties that will help you in dealing with the signs of aging. Curcuminoids are a class of compounds that are isolated from turmeric powder. Not only are these compounds coloring agents, they are also powerful antioxidants. Curcumin belongs in this group and is one of the most potent healing agents belonging to turmeric.

Turmeric is anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, and the list goes on and on.

The skin benefits of turmeric include preventing skin cancer, healing of eczema, acne treatment, and lightening of the skin.

Ingredients:

  • Equal parts turmeric and milk

Method:

  • Mix these two ingredients in a small container.
  • Gently apply to all areas of the face, neck, and chest where aging spots are most visible.You will feel a slight exfoliation from the turmeric powder, as well as the lactic acid from the milk.
  • Wash off gently with cold water. This will take a moment to remove, as the coloring from the turmeric is a little harder to remove than your typical mask, however, the lightening effects, as well as the other benefits, will definitely work to make up for it!
