If I can't eat it, I won't put it on my skin—if something is toxic for my belly, I'm not about to rub it all over the biggest organ of my body (the skin).

Turmeric Facial for Acne & Wrinkles. {DIY Skincare Recipe}

This is my personal skincare motto, and I mean it in the most literal sense. If something is toxic for my belly, I’m not about to rub it all over the biggest organ of my body (the skin)! So when it comes to skincare I head to the kitchen.

Fruits, vegetables, oils, flours, dairy, herbs and spices are all skincare ingredients in my eyes—not chemicals like estrogen-mimicking parabens, reproductive system-disrupting synthetic fragrances or kidney-damaging sodium lauryl sulfate (nor any of the other scary ingredients in commercial skincare products).

Here I’m sharing my favorite anti-acne, anti-aging ayurvedic facial of all time. It’s made up of100% natural, edible ingredients.

The star ingredient is turmeric, which has long been praised as a beautifying herb in ayurveda. Because turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antioxidant properties it’s an all-around anti-aging tonic for the skin. It helps to soothe acne and promote healing, and even lightens acne scars and hyper-pigmentation.

I do this facial at home about once a week, for general skin-love, and whenever I feel a pimple coming on.

Its effects never cease to amaze me. This facial banishes impending blemishes as it nourishes and hydrates.
