Things you can do with turmeric

Widely used in the Indian kitchen, turmeric, also called king of spices, is beneficial in many ways. The curcumin in it, a bioactive element, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

From healing burns and cuts to controlling the process of ageing, experts have rated the spice high for its uses.

* Turmeric has been used by generations because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. It heals wounds and helps in keeping infections at bay.* Anti-ageing curcumin, a major component of turmeric, has strong antioxidant properties, that inhibits free radical production, and hence controls ageing by protecting cells from damage. Turmeric also helps stimulate new cell growth.

* Turmeric not only fights pimples and breakouts, but regular use can also clear acne scars and inflammation.

* Turmeric lessens the oil secretion by the sebaceous glands, and helps in keeping infections away.

* It is a great exfoliator and gives a youthful glow to the skin.

Rinse with cool water, scrubbing gently to remove. It will improve skin texture, diminish wrinkles and even out skin tone.Hydrating face mask: Mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder with an egg white, one teaspoon olive oil to form a paste. Leave the mask for 10-15 minutes and let it dry. Rinse with lukewarm water. It will tighten and tone the skin and give you a glow by locking in moisture.
