One of the most effective Indian Remedies for clear and beautiful skin is the following, consisting of the most used herb in India: Turmeric. The healing properties this herb has are countless. It is said if one starts drinking turmeric milk or simply starts taking the turmeric tablets, from an early age, so many diseases and ailments are prevented and even healed. It is recommended to start drinking or eating turmeric by the age of 30. So many physicians in USA are recommending turmeric for their patients and switching them over to turmuric capsules. It is found useful as an antidepressant, anti-inflammatory drug, anti-arthritis drug, anti-diabetes, analgesic (pain killer), anti-cancer, etc. I suffered from a huge injury to my back 5 years ago and having turmeric everyday was the biggest reason why I recovered so quick with no lingering pain or issues. It heals the body from the root of the problem. One thing to keep in mind, when taking turmeric regularly, is that it is a dry herb which means it will cause constipation and so one should be taking enough fibre simultaneously to prevent any discomfort.
My Favourite Turmeric Paste for Face: 1 teaspoon of Turmeric powder, 1 tablespoon of gram flour, ½ table spoon of rice poder, 4-5 drops of honey, 3-4 drop of lemon. Mix the paste in a bowl with clean fingers or a brush. Apply the paste on face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes until it dries. After it dries, gently wet your face and start removing the paste in circular motions. The result is always amazing. Whenever I use this mixture, I get an immediate glow, brightness and smooth texture. Face feels refreshed and get so many compliments. Everyone asks me what I put on my face and this is what I always recommend.
- Turmeric is anti inflammatory and heals scars and blemishes
- Gram flour is an amazing cleanser. It was used instead of soaps in Ancient India.
- Rice powder brightens your face immediately. You probably heard about its great uses and benefits from the Japanese culture as well.
- Honey is anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Full of antioxidants leaving behind soft and glowing skin.
- Lemon is one of the best skin lightener and exfoliator full of vitamin C.
PS: If you have dry skin, use more of honey and less lemon and add half tablespoon of yogurt. If you have Oily Skin, use more Lemon and less Honey. Adjust it to how your skin reacts.
