Turmeric is one of the most well-known skin beauty treatments in India.
The traditional recipe for the Indian Bridal Glow Mask goes like this: The night before a wedding, an Indian woman would cover herself, head to toe, in a mixture of turmeric, gram flour (otherwise known as garbanzo bean flour), sandalwood powder, and almond oil. It resulted in millions of happy wedding nights. And beautiful skin!
In today’s world, turmeric is highly regarded as one of the universe’s most healthy spices. It’s antibiotic and anti-inflammatory, and with daily ingestion, it treats and prevents scads and scads of ailments – like many different types of cancer, chronic pain, Alzheimer’s, diabetes … and acne.
It’s also very softening for the skin, it reduces swelling (and puffiness!), and it’s great at diminishing the appearance of wrinkles.
There are tons of things you can do with it – from brightening your locks to removing unwanted facial hair – but today is all about the mask.
