Turmeric is a super food — for health and beauty care — found in every kitchen. Its antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties are well documented.

Try out these simple tricks and save the money you would spend on beauty parlour visits for waxing and threading.

Oily skin
Make a face pack with one-and-a-half tablespoon sandalwood powder, three to four pinches of turmeric powder and three tablespoon orange juice. Apply the paste and let it dry for 10 to 15 minutes before washing it out with lukewarm water. The antiseptic and antibacterial properties of turmeric that fight pimples and breakouts will give you a youthful, glowing skin.

Dry skin
Mix one egg white, half teaspoon lemon juice, half teaspoon rose water, a few drops of olive oil and four to five pinches of turmeric powder to make a paste. Apply this on your face, let it dry and wash it out with cold water to see the natural glow on your face.

Make a paste of four pinches of turmeric powder, an equal quantity of rice powder, half teaspoon milk and tomato juice. Apply a thin layer of the paste on your face and leave it for 30 minutes before rinsing with water to get rid of wrinkles.

Add a few pinches of turmeric powder with 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice and 1/4 teaspoon cucumber juice. Apply this on your acnes, blemishes or pigmentations and leave it for 20 to 30 minutes and wash it off with cold water. The turmeric face mask helps not only to clear acne marks but also to reduce oil secretion.

Facial hair
Add one teaspoon gram flour to a few pinches of turmeric powder and use this as a scrub on your face daily for a month and see the difference on your facial hair.

Night cream
Make a paste of a few pinches of turmeric powder with milk or yoghurt and apply this face mask overnight. Do not wash your face with water in the morning — instead remove it with a mild cleanser and see the glow on your face.
