Hi Earthclinic. Some of you know me form other posts. Ive tried every remedy for beautiful skin in and out this site. I happen to have sensitive skin with freckles, coupled with rosacea around my nose. Plus I live in a very dry weather so the situation in my face was discoloration around that area redness, dry, rough skin coupled with large pores and dead cells.
I've had sucess using remedies from this site like the oil cleansing method, ACV, hidrogen peroxide or EVCO, borax urine therapy.
Some of those remedies helped cleansing my skin or diminishing wrinkles but none of them and I say NONE has worked like turmeric.
I read that turmeric needs a fat to be absorbed. I use it in 2 ways. First is mix some turmeric with skim milk in a little cup and apply it to my face. I let it dry for 5 or 10 min and rinse with cold water.
The other way is mixing it with coconut oil or sesame oil and massage my face as if it was an exfoliator. Again let it sit for 10 or 15 min and wash it off. This time you will need bathroom tissue to wipe it off. Be careful of using any towel cause turmeric will leave it yellow.
Ok guys IM 30 years old and I had just accepted that my skin was going to be red, dry and rough to touch around my nose forever. Tried every natural and cosmetic product on planet earth including snake creams, aloe soy products, lemon, exfoliators. I just cant list all the products I have used thru the years.
After 1 application I couldnt believe what I saw. The redness was almost gone It didnt light my freckles they were more noticeable cause my skin was clearer. When I touched my face it felt amazing just like new skin, like the skin I had when I was a child. All the damage I had on my skin for years was gone in a few minutes.
Usually after exfoliating, dead cells start to peel of around my nose nostrils, netween my eyebrows etc. I was amazed that no dead cells or dry skin not even 2 days after using turmeric.
I have also noticed the skin on my forhead softer- it used to be dry and a horizontal wrinkle line begins to form. Today when I touch my forhead I see nothing but hydrated skin.
I've found truly a new skin, people you can buy a new skin to your face in the supermarket and its only2 dollars- its called turmeric.
Please if you read this and suffer from sensitive skin, dry skin in your face, dead cells, redness or rosacea run to your supermarket or indian store.
The best thing I have used period. Do it at night and wake up a brand new face.
Turmeric for beautiful skin -
My mom suggested that I use tumeric powder as a paste on my face to remove some dark spots around the crease of my mouth. Having tried it several times over the past 2 weeks (not quite every day), I can say pretty confidently that it has been the best thing I have ever used on my skin, even beating ACV.
It is a commonly known home remedy among Indian people, since we use tumeric powder (or hardi/haldi, as we call it here) daily in curries, in tea and also in Hindu prayers. In fact, during Hindu weddings, which can last for days, we have something called Hardi ki Raat (the Night of Tumeric, lol), when the bride's whole body is consistently rubbed down with tumeric and coconut oil for hours during general festivities so that her skin looks amazing on her wedding night. Well, I wonder why we ever switched to store-bought stuff, since this works so well!
Needless to say, it did remove those marks and the dark areas under my eyes which I've always had (and my mom and grandma also have). It generally evens the tone of my skin to a very noticeable extent. It tightens the pores and makes my skin very smooth and even gives it a beautiful warm, healthy glow - which is amazing as I have PCOS and my skin has suffered many hormonal ravages. Though my PCOS is under control, I sometimes get one or two pimples and the tumeric starts drying them up upon application so that they never develop. It is also the only thing that helped the dry patches of skin on my legs left from recently using a soap that I was allergic to - clearing it up and leaving it healed in 2 days after a few days of it not healing on its own.
I basically use it by mixing 1 tbsp. in a small bowl with some milk and a bit of sugar (as a mild exfoliant). I rub my face and any other problem areas with this and leave it on for as long as possible before I shower, usually for about 15-20 mins.
One **major warning** is that tumeric stains very easily and it is difficult to get out of fabric, which is why I apply it while naked and before a bath. It can slightly stain your nails too, so I use it at night and the color fades by morning. I'm experimenting with using something thicker than milk as a base, such as honey or beeswax, so it doesn't drip everywhere. I tried using 1 tbsp. tumeric in some honey with a tiny splash of ACV and sugar, which worked fantastically, even better than the milk.
You can try a lot of different things, but the tumeric itself is great for your skin!

turmeric is gold! i had a nasty boil come on mid november. it would get fierce, then subside to where i thought it was nearly gone, then come back with a vengeance! TURMERIC is the ONLY thing that works! i began taking turmeric on the 21st of february-powder mixed with hot water. then i also made a salve of turmeric powder, tea tree oil mixed with oliver oil and put this directly on the boil. then i bought some turmeric capsules and took 3 3x/day and the boil went down in size and pain within days. today, a little more than a month later, the boil is completely gone, healed and no scar! i will be taking turmeric always! also to be noted, in indian culture and ayurvedic health, taking turmeric is highly recommended for healthy skin and over all health.
I made a face mask using a tspn each of turmeric, ground tiger nuts, honey & acv with a few drops of black cumin seed oil. i cannot get my hands off my face. it's so smooth.
Re the comments about urine for the complexion: A Russian nurse told me about a middle aged woman who had the most beautiful, clear ski. Apparently, she applied her own urine to her skin. When you think of it, it is not that strange. The most expensive facial creams contain uremia, basically urine. So, why not give it a try.

Dear Sir, Nothing more than our own water (urine therapy). Thanks for your web site. I have understood that there is nothing in the world like our own water which is only the solution to cure all kinds of physical and mental sufferings of the people. The remedy lies in the nature. For your kind information, I have been using the gift of nature for all purposes since 1995. God Bless Everyone!
Hi! Since I became a vegetarian my skin has improved very much. I used to have very oily skin and acne in my back as well. It's all gone thanks to whole yeast, plenty of fruit and vegetables every single day, lots of water, tofu and nuts. I walk 2 hours per day as well.
Vitamin C and youthful skin: I knew someone who used to take Vitamin C crystals several times a day. He looked so young and his skin was always glowing and healthy. He was 40 at the time and played sports so he was in the sun a lot. He told me the he took the vitamin C for a lot of reasons but a bonus was that it worked on the collegan in the skin. He explained it this way. If your skin is the bricks, the collagen would be the morter between the bricks. As you age the mortar (Collagen) breaks down and things start to sag. But the vitamin C works to keep that collagen firm. Naturally I started taking the Vitamin C right away. This was over 12 years ago. I take Ester C, and have gradually increased my dosage up to 5000 mgs a day. I will take 2 500 mg capsules upon waking, then with all three meals, then at bedtime. This amount works for me and I learned a lot about it from reading the works of Linus Pauling. I found that I was the one who didn't get all of the virus's and colds going around. I used to get sore throats all the time, no matter what the season, which sometimes led to wicked strept throat. No more. I'm sure this is because of the Ester C. I'm almost 51, and no one has guessed my age to be in my 40s yet. I keep my age to myself but not the benefits of vitamin C!
I use Vitamin E Oil or Emu Oil on my face, neck, and hands. Its wonderful as I have dry skin. I do not use soap of any kind on my face. I just turned 60 and one clerk thought I was her age(48). I get many compliments.
I want to thank Mimi from Corpus Christi, TX for her advice on using Vitamin E and cold water for beautiful skin. I have noticed a difference in my skin since using this remedy and I have only been doing it for about two weeks. I think my skin looks younger and my blemishes are down to almost nil. Putting the Vitamin E on is a bit of a pain, but I moisten my face with a little cold water and this seems to help. Please share any other remedies or beauty tips you might have Mimi! Thanks again.
Vitamin E oil has kept my face young. When I was about 12 my mom made me and my sister spread Vitamin E on our faces. We complained because it felt sticky and thick like honey, but she insisted that overnight our faces would absorb it and that we would thank her later when we were older. She also insisted that after a shower we rinse our faces and bodies with cold water. And to never let the shower water hit our faces but to splash rinse our faces with our hands and with cold water ALWAYS. Mother knows best. The next day our faces felt baby smooth. After that ever so often (about once or twice a month) I would open up Vitamin E capsules and spread the oil on my face before bed and sleep with it on my face overnight. People have always commented how clear and smooth my face is. I've had people also ask me what I use in my hair because it is ridiculously shiny (I think it's because of the cold water rinses) I'm also an avid red wine drinker (I have been since my early 20's). Ironically, recent studies have shown that a chemical called Resveratrol slows age related diseases. I am in my 40's and even though at the time I was 100lbs. overweight at a physical I had done, I was told that my blood pressure and cholesterol levels were superb. They also thought I was only 20 or 21 (and they only thought I was in my 20's because my vocabulary was what made me sound more mature/not to mention my youngest who was 8 at the time was with me otherwise they would've guessed my age even younger). Anytime people find out my age their jaws drop. When me and my husband go out I still get asked for my ID (even though I'm a couple of months older than my husband) My husband on the other hand is a beer drinker (not that I have anything against beer-I enjoy beer every once in a while, too) and a smoker and he's been mistaken for being in his 50's. He's also been offered the senior discount at places we've gone to eat. I'm convinced that a combination of both the Vitamin E and the coincidence that I happened to be a red wine drinker (Merlot) is what has kept my skin youthful. I've been doing the same for my daughter who has the loveliest face and people do the same all the time (ask what she uses on her face and hair to keep it so clear and smooth). I know that chances are we just have good genes (my mom and her sisters look very young, too) but then again my mom and her sisters have been doing the same thing for years, too; So, if you don't have a skin care regimen I highly recommend this one and pass it on.
Vitamin A, which is found in carrots, Vitamin C found in apples and washing my skin with a mild antibacterial soap twice a day morning and night.

I use only water to clean my face. And once in a month, I use facial soap. Some time ago I used to use the daily, and I found out especially in the summer that I could not resist sunburn. My natural skin oil is my sun block. Especially those who don't have an oily face skin can benefit from this advice.
To keep my skin soft and smooth I drink lots of water. To keep gray hairs away I spin around about 40 spins, believe me this works, but you have to do it every day. I'm going to start using the ACV, I'll let U know my results.

I bought white tea bags at the health food store. I make a cup of tea using one tea bag, instead of drinking the tea I apply it every morning after I cleanse as an astringent. I notice my wrinkles are less noticeable and have nearly disappeared. Some beauty lotions have white tea in them to make wrinkles disappear, I just make my own, less expensive and you get white tea purely
