My Best Friend Tumeric

Okay. First of all, it’s an expression. Tumeric is not literally my best friend. I wasn’t sure how many of you out there would get the gist and how many of you wouldn’t. So I decided to clear the air for all just in case… I have friends… Real friends… I’m not a weirdo.

ANYHOW, tumeric — for those who are foreign to it — is an orange colored herb that you can buy at just about any store. It has several health benefits including but not limited to liver cleansing and treating arthritis. I was first introduced to its benefits by my real human friend, Christina.

To make a long story short…

Two Summers ago, I needed a cheap and quick way to treat acne when Christina discovered a face mask I could try. You guessed it: There was tumeric in it. And the tumeric in my homemade concoction was what saved the day for me. I ended up with very clear and beautiful looking skin.

These days, I use a face mask made of yogurt, honey, and tumeric. It not only clears up the blemishes, it leaves my skin with a healthy glow. I recommend it for everybody. Although the original recipe for it calls for flour, I never found myself needing to add that. To each their own. Admittedly, I don’t put on the mask every day. Just every other day or so, so as not to dry up my skin and create more breakouts. I also recommend taking tumeric internally via supplement pills, another thing I do regularly. Below is a more expanded list of tumeric’s plentiful health benefits. I hope this helps someone in their research.
