AND IT WAS ALL YELLOW - TURMERIC

I have for many years heard by grandmothers and aunts speak about the benefits of turmeric for the skin and body. (The Hindu word for Turmeric is Hurdee and is the traditional night before a wedding ceremony, where the paste is applied to the bride and the result is glowing skin)

So my mum has always advised that she used the mask as a teen and young adult so I gave it a go.

Now before you try this, you must do a patch test on your arm. Since its a natural product, people may not be allergic, but don't take chances.

I found that one of the most effective masks or to use on skin irritations is to combine equal amounts of Turmeric, Honey and 1/2 the amount of milk and mix to form a paste. This will depend on how much of an area you want to try it on.

(for small irritations I go for 1 teaspoon honey, 1 teaspoon turmeric and 1/2 teaspoon milk - you can add more milk if its too dry)

Once you apply it with fingers or a small soft brush leave to dry and then wash off. I have tried it over night on a nasty nasty mozzie bite and it was gone by morning.

Caution: it is yellow so leaving it on the face as a full mask for toooooo long might leave you looking a but jaundiced! I leave mine for 15 - 20 minutes at the most!

Glowing bright skin!

Please as I said, test this on a patch first before trying.

    Turmeric (one of my fav spices) so many uses. Just this morning I saw a headline to use turmeric as a pain reliever. I haven't actually read the article (or ever tried it) so do not know if it actually works or what the reasoning behind it is. Just like that it is not just used to colour food. :)
