Before I start telling you about how you can use a turmeric face mask let me tell you a little bit about how I first got introduced to it. Turmeric, also known as Haldi, has been used for centuries in India both as a food and as a medicine.
My Mum is from a small and quaint village called Aldona in North Goa. I spent a lot of my childhood in this village. When the month of April and May came along they would be a lot of activity in each household. You see once the rain started it would be difficult to get fish as fishermen did not go out to sea in stormy weather. It would be just as hard to go out to get groceries. So the pantry would be stocked with enough rice, sugar, spice powders and whatever else was needed for the next 4-5 months.
