Turmeric for skin care - is it good? Any side effects?

Since childhood I was told “Haldi our Chandan” is good for skin.
How effective is it really? I just read a question regarding Diwali skin care. Is turmeric face pack good during diwali?

Turmeric has antiseptic effects. It contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. These characteristics provide glow and luster to the skin. It also boosts skin health.

It also contains curcumin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that help promote healing.

Haldi & Chandan is specially good in winters, as it also gives the required warmth to body. So its a well known rituals in Indian household to apply ubatan made of turmeric and sandal.
Now a days, there are many good brands that promotes only ayurvedic skincare and haircare products, and these ingredients are essential part of it.

One such brand is Inari Naturals. Their “Body Ubtan 100% Natural - With Goodness of Turmeric” is very good product, and must have in your Diwali list.

Infact, many international brands also believe in these age old ingredients on Indian culture. Found a very good blog on Neutrogena USA’s official website about “Goodness of Turmeric”. You can refer the link here:

Sounds good… will try.
