Wild turmeric is an important ingredient in any ayurvedic skin care product. It has anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory, anti-septic and anti-bacterial properties. The yellow pigment in the turmeric makes the skin brighter. It also helps in removing facial hair and pimple marks, when used for a longer time. Ladies used to apply turmeric paste on their body before taking bath ages before, to give a glow to their skin. This ritual is even now followed in marriage ceremonies in India. So how do we use it as a face pack?
Last time my mom came home, she felt my face was dull even after a facial at a nearby parlor :( This is why I'm not a parlor hitting girl!! She took the pains of searching kasthuri manjal in the market, and found a shop which sold the dried kasthuri manjal roots. She brought them home and grinded it coarsely in the mixer. Sieved it to make a fine powder and stored it for my later use. You can also buy 100% organic Kasthuri manjal powder available from some known brands.
