Oh my god...all these years searching for creams and ointments to cure pimples and zits....what a waste of time..I wish I had met this girl before!
Chatting online with one of my colleagues I told her that I was going to write my next blog on pimples and zits. She said she was the expert and I should hire her for her advice and secret cure. I was like yeah right..."why don't you patent your secret remedy"...ha ha. Any way, by the end of the chat session she ended the conversation by letting out the secret.. "turmeric " is what she said...
For a second I thought she was kidding. But then she told me how to use it to cure a growing pimple or zit and also to cure scars left over by zits. No wonder she had such a spotless and charming skin!
I decided to first practically implement it and then write about it in case it was effective. I used it on my sister who always complains that she has an excessively oily skin and has pimples most of the times on her cheeks and chin. Guess what ? It worked ! It stopped a growing pimple right there and even cured it!
Wait till you hear what I found out about turmeric from a real expert. After some research from my grandmother who is the real expert and know-it-all about natural home remedies and herbs, I found out that drinking 1/4 teaspoon of turmeric added to a glass of warm milk everyday helps:
- cure all stomach ulcers
- reduces acne
- reduces pimples and zits
- relieves body aches
- cures arthritis
- slows down the process of osteoporosis
- reduces the risk of cancer
- relaxes the body
- heals internal injuries
- improves the digestive system
- improves eye sight
- cures insomnia
Rubbing 1 table spoon of turmeric mixed in 1/2 cup of yogurt or gram flour (add some water to make a paste) on your body or face :
- lightens blemishes
- improves skin tone
- smooths down the complexion
- softens the skin
- reduces facial and body hair
- removes black and white heads
- cures pimples and zits
Wash your hands, wet your pimple with water and apply a thin coat of turmeric on it and leave it on for a few hours. Repeat this process until the pimple/zit disappears. This will stop the pimple from growing and leaving a scar.
Applying 1 teaspoon of turmeric mixed in 1 tablespoon of mustard oil on a bruise, open wound, sprain or fracture:
- cures the wound remarkably
- reduces scarring unbelievably
- soothes down the sprain
- heals a fracture faster than any medication
- removes scars
