Let’s walk you through your kitchen and explore 10 easy-to-use Indian skincare ingredients, for that flawless, ever-perfect skin.

1. Turmeric

Your mom’s go-to kitchen spice is also your skin’s best friend, in beauty, sickness and health. An age-old superfood for your skin, Turmeric is Mother Nature’s boon to us. 

Who doesn’t need a cure for unsolicited acne? We all do! The curcuminoids present in Turmeric help in reducing skin inflammation which fights stubborn acne by removing the oil buildup under the skin. Turmeric also visibly brightens the skin by reducing the production of Melanin, thus fading scars, and giving you a natural Indian glow. 

DIY Tip: 

  1. Mix half a tsp of Turmeric with water to make a fine paste.
  2. Apply it to the areas affected by acne. 
  3. Rinse with lukewarm water once dried.
