Apply Turmeric All Over Your Face
Woman in India have been doing this for years. They’re doing something right, because the anti-inflammatory properties in turmeric soften the skin, clear acne, reduce swelling, and diminish wrinkles.
So, how exactly do you lather turmeric all over your face? By making a turmeric face mask, of course! Here’s how you can do this:
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
2 teaspoons rice flour (for oily skin) OR finely ground oats (for dry or mature skin)
3 tablespoons plain yogurt (or milk, cream, or sour cream)
Apply the mixture to your clean face, and then let it dry. After 15-20 minutes, rinse it off. Try doing this once a week, and if it goes well, increase the frequency to every day or every other day.
If sugary foods are a staple of your diet, you may want to reconsider what you eat. When sugar breaks down and enters the bloodstream, it bonds with protein molecules, including those found in collagen and elastin [the fibers that support skin], through a process called glycation. This degrades the collagen and elastin, which in turn leads to sagging and wrinkles.
Preventive measures: Drink as much water as you can; avoid alcohol and salty foods, which are dehydrating; and apply a rich moisturizer with SPF 15 or higher 30 minutes before going out, as sunscreen needs time to be absorbed before it’s effective.
