Turmeric is a staple ingredient in my kitchen cabinet for many reasons. First of all, its unique taste and vibrant colour brings any dish to life. Besides this it also has numerous health benefits while ingested, and used externally. It’s highly anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and detoxifying. For me, a turmeric latte is a life-saver whenever I feel like my body needs a little kick in the immune system. Plus it’s freaking delicious, I like to use a blend by Viridian that has cinnamon, chilli, vanilla and cardamom.
I recently discovered the benefits of turmeric for the skin, when used externally. Turmeric can help slow down cell damage and it evens out any colour pigmentations. Combined with the soothing and anti-inflammatory qualities of oats, it’s a perfect match for anyone who suffers from skin conditions such as acne, eczema or dry skin. I used this while traveling for my sunburned face, and it worked like a charm. -Stay protected!
Mix 1dl of oats, 1 teaspoon of high quality turmeric
and enough water to reach a desired consistency.
Voíla, there you go!
Ps. Don’t sleep on a white pillowcase after this mask like I did.
