Skin Care with Spices


Hello, my dear readers, as you know my blog is about how to take care of yourself, your skin and hair, but I do believe that every joyful face is a beautiful face, Beauty is Joy.๐Ÿ’ฎ๐Ÿ’ฎ

If a person is joyful, happy and positive towards life no matter how he or she looks you always want to be with him/her because everyone wants to cherish the life with positive people and we don’t want to live our lives negatively at all.✌๐Ÿ’—

You have shown so much love to my earlier post. Your love and comments motivate me to write and explore more. Thank you so much.๐Ÿ™

Today I am writing about something that we all have in our home, i.e. in the kitchen, where’s true magic happen. It’s the place where we have our real treasure that is spices; any dish is incomplete without spices.

These spices build the taste in food as well as help in making your immunity strong. Some of the spices are too used to enhance skin texture and strong hair.

We always keep looking for organic products with maximum benefits. So I am sharing these five spices from my kitchen.


My First favourite Turmeric (Haldi) Facepack
Turmeric is one of the members of ginger. It is in bright yellow and orange. We use this turmeric powder in our dishes to give colour and for a boost in the immunity.

Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial properties. So it helps in healing the wounds too.For skin, it helps in curing acne, pigmentation, discolouration or uneven tone.

You can use pure turmeric powder in water as a face pack or can make mix pinch of turmeric in aloe vera gel and almond oil or you can just use a little on the pigmentation or acne area.  

Yes, it will leave a yellow colour on your face but we are going nowhere in this quarantine so I don’t mind looking yellow or you can use face wash too, after applying it for 20 minutes.

These days Golden Milk is so much in trend. Add a pinch of turmeric in the milk. It helps in curing cough and cold helps in healing the wound and boost immunity too. This is one of the famous immunity boosters that you’ll find in every household in India.


Saffron: Who doesn’t like saffron!!! One of the expensive spice as it include the labour cost and time involved in farming. Saffron is a powerful antioxidant.

In India, Kashmir and Rajasthan are famous for Saffron farming. Saffron is golden in colour and has an exotic aroma; many Asians and Mediterranean countries use it in their dishes, to give colour and aroma in sweets, desserts and especially in rice.

How to use saffron as a face pack
Mix saffron in two or three spoons of milk, make a paste of it use it as a face pack for uneven tone and under eye dark circles too.

Now this one is my favourite face mask, Mix saffron in sandalwood powder and honey with milk for removing tan, uneven tone and pigmentation. 

You can also make toner of saffron. Put some saffron strands in rose water, leave it for a night. It will work as a natural skin toner.
Cinnamon face pack
Cinnamon has medicinal properties, loaded with antioxidants. It's so perfect it can make any dish so delicious especially the cinnamon sugar frosting on the banana cake. Yum! ๐Ÿ˜‹

So mix a pinch of cinnamon in honey, put it on the acne only it will cure the acne because of its antibacterial properties.

Use banana, honey and pinch of cinnamon powder for clear skin. As cinnamon has skin lightening properties. It also helps to remove dark spots from skin.

Fenugreek seeds for face and hair
Fenugreek is a herb which is widely used in Indian dishes. Its seeds are used in cooking and its leaves are too eaten in India.

Soak the little fenugreek seeds in the water for a night then blend it with the yoghurt and apply on face for curing the uneven tone and pigmentation.

Don’t throw away the water drink it as it cures the digestive system too.

For healthy hair, you can grind the soaked fenugreek seeds and apply this paste on your scalp to get rid of dandruff.

Curry Leaves for hair and face pack
Curry leaves are widely used in Indian dishes. These leaves have a medicinal effect too. It is full of vitamins and minerals. These leaves cure constipation, it drops the cholesterol level and aroma is so good and I just love eating Greens.

Grind the curry leaves mix this paste with the fuller’s earth powder it will cure the acne and uneven tone. Best face pack for oily skin so far to cure acne.

Heat the coconut oil and put some curry leaves in heated oil, leave it for a few minutes to cool down and filter it then store it in a glass jar. Apply it three times a week on your hair. This oil prevents hair fall, promote hair growth too.
