Best Cure for Pimples and Zits

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
So the orange colored powder lying around your kitchen cabinets can be used to serve better purposes than just cooking. Using turmeric on daily basis has excellent health benefits and can be used as an ointment almost for any kind of injury, skin problem and best of all...pimples and zits. If my colleague and my grandmother had told me all about it earlier then probably it would have been my first blog post !
