The winter season makes the skin dull and dry by drawing out moisture. The natural glow of the skin vanishes in the chilly breeze, leading to redness. The pursuit of glowing skin makes many women indulge in expensive products, but sometimes, it may just be a kitchen ingredient away! If we go by what works for actress Alaya F for glowing skin and immunity, turmeric is a wonder spice.

Cherished around the world for its vibrant colour and medicinal properties, turmeric is as powerful as it is necessary for recipes across continents. Turmeric is a supercharged spice and has many benefits for the body and skin. The ‘golden spice’ can be a savior in restoring your natural glow, which may have been lost in the harshness of the winter breeze.

The use of turmeric is way beyond cooking and adding flavours. From having antioxidant properties to anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric has been used in Ayurveda for its medicinal properties for hundreds of years. This super spice can be a key ingredient in enhancing your beauty and natural glow. Since ancient times, turmeric has been used in marriage rituals to give a natural glow to the bride and the groom.

Recently, young and vivacious actress Alaya F took to her Instagram handle to share a video of her favourite uses of turmeric. Alaya suggests a turmeric milk recipe and a turmeric face pack recipe for healthy immunity and glowing skin respectively. Try them out!
