Does turmeric really lighten skin? Turmeric has free radicals that can easily reduce skin pigmentation and thus make turmeric a good antioxidant. How can antioxidants be of good help? Antioxidants, such as turmeric, have cleansing properties that help rid the body of free radicals that can be toxic and harmful. When these toxins are removed from the body, skin cells begin to function well and are relieved by oxidative stress.
What To Do:
- Take 1 tbsp turmeric powder and add raw whole milk (you can add tomato juice or lemon juice as well, but this is optional though) to form a paste.
- Leave the paste on your neck and face for about 20 minutes or half an hour and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.
- Moisturize as needed. Do this 2 – 3x a week to see improvements.
