In good natural organic skin care products, turmeric is an important ingredient. It is also widely used as useful spice. So, apart from adding color, it has numerous medicinal and beauty enhancing properties. It has also become a part of rituals, especially during Indian traditional wedding ceremonies when turmeric paste is applied to the groom and bride’s bodies to enhance beauty.
Turmeric has been used as beauty product over the centuries. Here are some properties of turmeric that are very effective home remedies for several skin disorders and for developing a flawless skin.

Face Mask

Inlcluding turmeric in face mask enhances the beautifying effect. Since turmeric has excellent healing properties, it heals up any damage to skin due to sun or external pollutants. After you rinse off the turmeric based mask, you can feel the difference in the glow of the skin. Regular use will transform facial skin. (HERBALLY RADIANT has introduced an excellent turmeric-mineral based face mask powder for creating amazing effect on skin.)  

 Signs of Aging
Turmeric is an excellent exfoliating agent that can help fight the signs of aging. Take gram flour and turmeric powder in equal proportions and prepare a paste by adding water. You may alternately prepare this paste in raw milk or even yoghurt. Apply it evenly on your body and leave it till it dries off. Wash it off with lukewarm water and scrub your face gently in circular motion. 

Turmeric can also be used in combination with other ingredients to reduce appearance of early wrinkles.
  • Add raw milk and tomato juice to rice powder and turmeric powder. Apply the paste and let it stay until it dries. Lactic acid present in milk will help peel off the dead skin cells.
  • You can add turmeric powder in buttermilk and sugarcane juice. This will work the best for dark circles and wrinkles.
  • Turmeric-honey paste can be applied on the face and neck to help exfoliate skin and keep a check on pores. 
Turmeric can take care of the scars and inflammation and also reduce oil secretion by sebaceous glands.
  • To prepare turmeric scrub, add a few drops of water and lemon juice to turmeric powder. Apply the paste on the acne affected area and leave it for about 15 minutes. Gently scrub it off your face with plain water.
  • One can also use turmeric and sandalwood mixture as an acne face pack and wash it off in approximately 10 minutes.
For acne scars, dab a mixture of turmeric and plain water and leave it on the marks for 15 minutes.
  • To control oil secretion, prepare a paste of sandalwood powder and ground turmeric with orange juice. Leave the paste on your face for 10 minutes and rinse it with lukewarm water. 
Stretch marks
Mixture of gram flour and turmeric in yoghurt/raw milk/water can help women lighten the stretch marks. 

In case you accidently burn your skin you can turn to turmeric for quick relief owing to its antiseptic properties. Prepare a mixture of turmeric and aloe vera gel. Apply it on the burn and notice how it heals the wound in no time. 
Facial hair
Chickpea flour or gram flour added to turmeric can be used as a facial scrub to inhibit hair growth. Be sure to apply this paste for about a month to notice results. Home remedies usually show results over a period of time upon consistent use.
