turmeric face pack

If you belong to an Indian family then probably you already know the importance of Turmeric (Haldi) in our daily life. From ‘Haldi-Doodh’ to ‘Haldi ka Ubtan’, being an Indian girl I have seen it being used in various ways.

Turmeric is a wonder spice that is available in every kitchen. Other than adding yellow color to the curry it has countless other uses as well. It just not heals our body internally but also externally. 

Turmeric is also known as The Golden Spice of Life. So, today I am going to tell you about the uses of Turmeric in our beauty regime. There are several ways to add Turmeric to our daily beauty regime. But today I am going to describe the Best Turmeric Face Packs for different types of Skin conditions. Before that let’s have a look at the Benefits of Turmeric on the Skin.

Benefits of Turmeric on Face and Skin:

  • It has anti-aging properties which also diminishes wrinkles.
  • It helps reduce pigmentation and clarification of skin giving an even skin tone.
  • It has antimicrobial properties and helps reduce breakouts.
  • It helps us to deal with skin conditions like acne, dry skin, and eczema.
  • It works as a natural skin exfoliant
  • Turmeric can also be used on elbows, knees, necks, and other parts to remove the dead and dark skin from the areas.
  • It has natural antibacterial antifungal properties.

Best Homemade Turmeric Face Packs

Now, I am starting with different turmeric packs. One can choose from these given options according to their own skin type and skin condition. In these given packs, I have mentioned the amount of turmeric up to 1/4th of a teaspoon because I am not a big fan of the yellowness that remains on the skin. One can adjust the amount of turmeric according to their own preference.

I would also suggest trying the pack on arm before putting it on the face especially to people with sensitive skin. As all these packs are homemade with only natural products so there is no harm to use these packs. One can apply these packs as many times they want to get the required result.
