The beauty and health benefits of turmeric have been told in every grandma’s diary since centuries. This magical herb can do miracles to your skin from de-tanning to healing deep scars. It is very conveniently available and helpful in solving your skin related problems. The age old tradition of applying turmeric on a bride’s skin has some significance and here you will find an easy way to do it at the comfort of your home.
Tanning and acne are the most common problems in the hot and humid weather. Those with oily skin have more troubles than people with normal to dry skin. The appearance of pimples is more prominent as the skin secrets more sebum (oil) during summers. The sweat areas start darkening giving you an uneven skin tone. This turmeric scrub has the goodness of honey, sugar and lemon which will be beneficial for almost any skin type preventing excessive secretion of sebum. Honey prevents dryness, lemon improves complexion, and sugar moisturises and removes dead skin. If you are tired of experimenting with expensive skin care products, it’s time you start giving these natural home remedies a try.
