in­gre­di­ent buzz turmeric

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

This an­tiox­i­dant, an­tibac­te­rial, an­ti­sep­tic, an­ti­in­flam­ma­tory pow­der works won­ders. It con­tains cur­cumin, so it’s high in an­tiox­i­dants and is a great anti-ager. As a paste, it can help con­trol se­bum pro­duc­tion and soothe acne. It helps to heal burns and wounds, and has ex­fo­li­at­ing prop­er­ties. Turmeric is also a per­fect DIY beauty in­gre­di­ent and our favourite way to use it is to com­bine it with nour­ish­ing, en­zymepacked in­gre­di­ents like yo­ghurt. Mix ¼ tsp turmeric with 1 cup plain Greek yo­ghurt and a drib­ble of honey. Ap­ply to your face in an up­ward mo­tion. Leave on for 20 min­utes, then rinse. Find it in: (1) SoulTree Ayurvedic Turmeric Anti-Wrin­kle Cream (R160) (2) Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cran­berry Seed En­er­giz­ing Ra­di­ance Masque (R485)
