Of course I turned to turmeric! Mixing it with a bit of water and some honey for exfoliation, I created a paste and applied it to the affected area.
Noting the anti-inflammatory properties of turmeric I thought of turmeric as an immediate remedy. In addition to applying the paste, I upped my daily turmeric intake by adding more to my teas, smoothies and curries.
I’m not sure if the turmeric was solely responsible for clearing up this ‘irritating’ irritation but a few days later it noticeably cleared up! Ayurvedically speaking, turmeric is known to treat acne, rashes and eczema so it’s no wonder my skin is as good as new!
Here’s the paste recipe:
2 parts turmeric
1 part honey
1 part water
Mix together to make a paste and apply topically to affected area.
A teaspoon of: Muse. Listening to: Madness.
