My skin is always in desperate need of an overhaul during the hot, sticky summer months. So I turn to a tried and true remedy: turmeric.
The powerful root packs a plethora of skin-boosting nutrients and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic beauty remedies. In fact, many women use a mixture of turmeric and sunflower oil on their skin to brighten complexions in the days leading up to their weddings.
It's extraordinarily anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, antibacterial and anti-aging, all of which makes it an excellent ingredient for a DIY face mask! This recipe is a new twist on an ancient remedy and luckily, the ingredients are totally affordable and can be found at an Indian grocer or online.
