Using Turmeric for skin care {Ingredient}

Kasturi Turmeric is the kind used for body application. It is a special kind which is not used in cooking. It is longer, about a finger length, and considerably thinner than the normal turmeric sticks which are short and stout. It does not leave any color on the face or clothes so safe to use.

Home Remedies:
  • A pinch of Kasturi Turmeric mixed with milk can be used as a cleanser. Milk has lactic acid which does the cleansing job and turmeric acts as an antiseptic. It also gives an instant glow to the complexion.
  • To get rid of facial hair, you can apply powdered Kasturi Turmeric every day on your face for about 10-15 minutes. The results would be visible in a month. Preferably, mix the turmeric with chickpea flour or any other scrub which you find is good for your skin. This way you can be sure it would not leave any color on your face.
  • Kasturi Turmeric can also be used as an ingredient in various face packs and face masks preperation. A pinch would do the job.
  • Kasturi Turmeric can be included in body scrubs. If used regularly, it removes body hair over a period of time. Gives great results when you use it on babies.

  1. Hi Swati...Myself Honey...a regular visitor of ur site. I live in Bangalore and heared a lot about Kasturi turmeric to get rid of facial hair...now from last 1 month i m trying it...may be it takes time to get the results, I just felt it made my facial hair growth little slow. Before going to bed I am using daily a mask made up of Besan,curd and Kasturi turmeric. I want to know whether it is fine to use this mask daily at night time ?

    1. hi honey :) yes, it does take a lot of time to show results so you have to be really patient!!! oh good that you noticed the change. yes, its perfectly fine to use it every night. you can even use it as a cleanser instead of going for a face wash. it cleanses the skin very well and keeps the skin really soft :) would love to know how it goes for you in the long run!!!

    2. Hey there!!

      What do u mean by it was not really that great? I read so many reviews which concluded that normal turmeric will stain the skin, and kasturi turmeric wont.

      Have you tried using it for acne? I have a few clogged pores due to using too rich a moisturiser :( and i really want the clogged pores gone cos it makes my skin so bumpy!!

      Do you know how often i can use this as a mask?

      Thanks alot in advance :)

    3. the product mentioned above wasn't up to my expectations in the least. yes, the original kasturi turmeric won't stain the skin but I haven't yet seen it being sold anywhere...probably its available in the spices market. yes, you can use it daily or even on alternate days!!
