# Turmeric


This actually is one of the most commonly used ingredients that would any grandma suggest. Be it in milk, if you or your child gets hurt or bruised or down with any infection due to its effective antiseptic property. And when it comes helping skin, there are dime a dozen advertisements that talks about turmeric being one of the ingredients of their beauty products. Applying a thick paste of turmeric and milk helps a great deal in cleaning the dirt from the face. Surely, its regular usage helps fight aging and is also the best way to exfoliate the dead skin. Acne, one of the best common problems amongst youth, is a matter of great concern. Though there are lots of products in the market which claim to treat this problem, it’s actually the best way to try turmeric for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties to help fight acne or pimples.
