A culinary spice, but one that will easily put a perfect glow into your smile. Turmeric for your skin is a great option for anyone that wants that healthy glow and glint in their eye.

As it is part of the ginger family, the benefits are almost instantly clear. Much like Omega-7 it can reduce inflammation, which means natural ageing effects of skin will be tackled.

Turmeric can fight off wrinkles, acne, and other effects created by both inflammation and ageing.

Henna

An age-old Indian artwork. It may look great sporting one of those Henna tattoos at a festival, but it can also be great at making your hair feel supple and look incredible.

Henna dyes are all over the market today and can be used to put a glow in greying or cracking hair. Because there are less chemicals in this kind of dye and because it is natural, it’s even good for your hair and can get the brightness, or the darkness back into your style.

Just make sure you’re not allergic to it by doing a patch test first!

Yogurt

While yogurt can also taste great and help your insides with healthy cultures and bacteria that is good for you, it can also be a lifesaver for your skin in those hot summer months.

Applied underneath sun cream, it can keep your skin incredibly hydrated and looking great. As it can keep the skin cool and is rich in protein, it has similar effects to turmeric, fighting off acne and other skin ailments.

Bhumi Alma

If you’ve had a recent accident and skinned a knee or cut yourself, Bhumi Alma is a great option to assist your body in the healing process.

It’s an herb that can be found almost anywhere in India and in the most unusual places, from cracks in the ground to the coastline!

So, it’s a great idea if you’ve recently cut yourself to use this herb to help your wounds healed, before putting on some yogurt or turmeric to keep your skin feeling fresh and healthy on top of this!

Rakta Chandan

Rakta Chandan, meaning red sandalwood, is a great option for a face mask. It can help rejuvenate your skin and keep your face feeling fresh.

If you want to get rid of a few pores and keep your skin and smile shining, then this really is the option for you.

So, ancient Indian remedies certainly do still work today. This is thanks to the fact that they’re herbal based or based on proteins and zinc or spices.

Now that we live in such a scientific age we can see why they work, but what’s more important is that these are some of the best ancient remedies that’ll keep your skin and hair fresh and your injuries healing!
