You may be familiar with this in the kitchen, but did you know this root can give you glowing skin? In many traditional Indian weddings, one of the most important ceremonies is the ‘haldi’ ceremony. This is where the bride prepares for her wedding by putting on turmeric paste on her skin for a more vibrant complexion. Ta-da, glowing bride. You can try it too!
Mix a teaspoon of organic turmeric powder with a dollop of plain yogurt and some honey to make a thick paste. Go easy on the turmeric, as a little goes a long way and too much will result in a yellowish tinge to your skin. Apply paste on your skin – face or body – for 15 minutes or until dry. Hit the showers, scrub off the residues, and bask in your soft, glowing skin!
