Summer Swimsuits Mean Turmeric Masks
Turmeric is the beauty herb. Of course there are other beauty herbs, but I am talking about this one right now. Kelp is a beauty herb, burdock is a beauty herb, but turmeric is the beauty herb. Why? because it is so easy to add to the diet. Turmeric is the main ingredient in many curries. Yummy curry, and beautiful skin. Yes, many people eat kelp and burdock, but there is a learning curve to enjoying a fresh kelp/burdock salad. Whereas since the first time I bit into a juicy piece of tandoori chicken with some curry peas, we have been inseparable.
Last summer I did turmeric masks, and everybody complimented me upon my skin. It is a messy mask because of the yellow color. It will die your clothes, nails, and counter if you aren't careful. Therefore this mask requires careful contemplation. Do it in the tub, and wash your tub thoroughly after the treatment. any bits of turmeric left on the tile will begin to color it. As will the carrot in this mask. Note that same yellow color on tandoori chicken is from the turmeric.
They say a woman that eats turmeric while she is pregnant will have a child with beautiful skin. If your mamma didn't know about it until after you were born, it's not too late for you. Try my Carrot turmeric mask below.
