Turmeric  can help you defeat the signs of ageing.

Take besan (gram flour) and turmeric powder in equal proportions and prepare a paste by adding water/raw milk or even yoghurt.

Apply it evenly on your face and leave it till it dries off. Wash it off with lukewarm water and scrub your face gently in circular motion.

Turmeric-honey paste can be applied on the face and neck to help exfoliate skin and keep a check on pores.

Turmeric take care of the scars and inflammation and also reduce oil secretion by sebaceous glands.

To prepare turmeric scrub, add a few drops of water and lemon juice to turmeric powder. Apply the paste on the acne affected area and leave it for about 15 minutes. Gently scrub it off your face with plain water.
You can also use turmeric and sandalwood mixture as an acne face pack and wash it off in approximately 10 minutes.
