Turmeric can really calm your skin down, whenever it feels irritated, itchy and inflamed.
- Acts as a soothing scrub
While it is common knowledge that turmeric is great for your skin, what most people don't know is that bathing with turmeric mixed with curd once every week can do absolute wonders for your skin. While turmeric acts as a natural scrub, the curd moisturizes your skin. This exfoliating paste removes dead skin cells from your skin, making it feel clearer and more moisturized, than ever.

- Turmeric for bright skin and a better complexion
Wait, turmeric uses for skin don’t just end there! Lakadong turmeric even helps in improving your skin complexion and clearing up your skin of any impurities.

You can mix our Lakadong turmeric powder with our organic honey, adding it to a glass of warm water, to get healthier and brighter skin.
Just like absolutely everything else, turmeric can have side effects too, if not ingested or used in ideal proportions. Due to its ability to enter our body’s circulation system, turmeric is burned down quite easily after being ingested - which is why, the results can sometimes take time to show so it’s best to be a little patient and wait for best results. And while you look after your health and skin with Lakadong turmeric, it's important for you to remember not to consume too much of it while waiting for the results. Also, when you apply Lakadong turmeric externally, mixed with other ingredients from your kitchen, always do a patch test first to ensure that the mixture suits your skin.
Indians have always been huge advocates of all things organic and healthy, and we believe that the first step to adopting that lifestyle, should be by inculcating turmeric in your everyday life. Whether ingested or applied, Lakadong is a blessing - live naturally, live herbal, only with Lakadong turmeric. Once you start using it, there’s no going back - check out and order our Lakadong powder today and see how you can start using turmeric for bright skin!
