Choosing the Right Procedures

I have worked as a receptionist at a popular cosmetic surgery office for the past ten years, and I have seen every type of cosmetic surgery and recovery that you could imagine. Unfortunately, some patients are much better at choosing their procedures than others. For example, we had one patient that opted to have ten nose jobs in a row, which lead to a deformed bridge and a super tiny nose tip. Unfortunately, when she came back a few months later to have the problem corrected, the doctors didn't have enough tissue to work with. On my website, you will learn how to decide which procedures are right for you, so that you aren't left regretting your decisions down the road.

Natural Skincare Ingredients: 2 Ways To Use Turmeric

by Michelle Austin

Knowing the type of ingredients that are in your skincare products can help you make a better purchasing decision. You don't have to rely on artificial chemicals for younger looking skin. There are plenty of natural ingredients capable of offering the same antioxidating or rejuvenating effects. In particular, turmeric is hailed as the super skincare spice, and is a common ingredient in luxury skincare products. You can easily take advantage of this spice with homemade masks. Regular turmeric found in grocery stores may temporarily stain your skin, and as a result, should not be used for external application purposes. Instead, use kasturi turmeric. Here are 2 ways to use this magical ingredient to brighten your skin, reduce wrinkles and remove facial hair.

Reduce Wrinkles and Brighten Skin with a Little Bit of Turmeric, Milk and Honey

Turmeric can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and slow down the aging process significantly. In addition, milk is great for your skin, as it contains lactic acid, which can help improve your skin's texture by sloughing off dead skin cells. Honey is a wonderfully effective moisturizer. By combining these two ingredients, you'll be able to fight of aging.

Mix turmeric powder with equal parts of milk and honey until it becomes a paste. After you have washed your face, tie your hair up and apply the mask evenly onto your face without missing any spots. Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes before washing it off with cool water. You should instantly see and feel a difference.

Remove Facial Hair with a Dash of Turmeric with Gram Flour

Small facial hairs can darken your complexion, and also affect whether your skin cells can easily absorb the nutrients found in other skincare products you apply regularly. Turmeric can inhibit the growth of facial hair when combined with gram flour.

There are several different masks you can make; however, the easiest one is to simply mix turmeric with gram flour and water to create a thick paste. Spread the paste onto your face, and give it ample time to dry up. Once the mask has dried, rub the paste off away from the direction your hair grows. Rinse the mask off with warm water, then cold water to close off the pores, and slather on moisturizer.


If you don't have time to make these masks at home, there are plenty of skincare products that contain turmeric powder. These skincare products are just as effective, and will keep the effects of aging at bay. However, turmeric is quite expensive. You might want to take a look at the concentration and amount of turmeric in the product as a gauge of efficacy, and to make sure the products you are purchasing are well worth their price.
