Turmeric's powerful anti-inflammatory properties help in clearing and smoothing skin. It calms redness, irritation and promotes healing, making it perfect for acne prone skin or even eczema. And of course it has to be linked to prevention of chronic diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's. Trust me Turmeric has got to become a part of your beauty regimen. Have i mentioned how it brightens and whitens skin in addition to whitening teeth?
So what can you do with turmeric powder?
Mix 1 tsp turmeric with 1 tsp honey or 1 tsp milk depending on the consistency you want.
Turmeric properties fight acne and dullness and also prevent aging by slowing down cell damage. Milk softens skin, kills germs and has lightening agents.
Apply it to your face and neck for 10-15 minutes and rinse out.
Mix 1 tsp turmeric with 1/2 tsp coconut oil and 1 drop peppermint oil. You can opt to mix turmeric with water too, it will work just fine.
Turmeric whitens teeth, removes stains, minimises decay, eases toothaches, promotes healthy gums and generally improves oral health.
Apply yo your teeth for 3-5 minutes and rinse out.
Tip: get an additional toothbrush because it will stain your favorite toothbrush.
Quick Morning Smoothie
Mix turmeric with frozen pineapples, cinnamon and coconut or almond milk
Almond milk is ridiculously expensive in this country so i opt for coconut milk.
Add the ingredients in a blender and process till you get a smooth drink.
Take this first thing in the morning and pack your body with antioxidants
Adding a dash of turmeric powder brings color and flavor to food, from rice to frittatas or even fried vegetables. Turmeric is good for the liver, can treat an upset stomach and has many other health related benefits you should not be missing out on.
As with any other good thing, Turmeric also has its negatives.
Some people react to Turmeric on their skin, so you might want to mix it with other ingredients such as milk/ honey and it stains so be sure not to use your favorite bowls for the mixtures.
