1. Turmeric is loaded with anti oxidants that ward off free radicals and hence prevents premature ageing of the skin. Besides it also makes for a great exfoliating agent. So take 2 tbsp besan and add a pinch of turmeric to it. Make a thick paste with water and apply on face and neck. Let it dry and then scrub it off with your fingers in gentle circular motion to say hello to a glowing, firmer, younger looking skin.face care tips 022.

6. Regular use of a combination of turmeric and cucumber juice can also help lighten your skin tan. Apply this mixture on the affected area and leave it on for about 20-30 minutes and wash with water. This remedy is also effective in treating any pigmentation on the skin.

A word of caution here. Turmeric can leave a slight yellowness on your skin, which will eventually subside. But I would still recommend you use it sparingly.
