Turmeric is a spice used primarily in Indian cooking but also has powerful medicinal attributes. The spice is a natural acne fighter and makes skin glow by evening out skin tones. Turmeric creams applied under the eyes can get rid of dark circles and incorporating turmeric into a moisturizing lotion allows you to keep skin soft and glowing. The turmeric lotion should be applied daily for two to three weeks for the best results. Turmeric powder or turmeric paste can be used in a lotion recipe, though the powder may be easier to find at a local supermarket or health foods store.
