Kasturi Manjal - Why and How to Use it?

Among its multitudes of benefits, the Golden spice is a perfect anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-aging substance. It is also used in the cosmetic industry for all types of skins to offer a plethora of perks.

Applying Kasturi Manjal for Various Skin Types

  • Normal to Dry Skin :-
    Powder the Kasturi Manjal and make a paste by blending it with milk. Apply the paste twice a week all over the skin and wash it off after a while. The curcumin packed in it hydrates the skin and helps augment the natural glow.
  • Normal to Oily Skin :-
    Powder the Kasturi Manjal and make a paste by mixing it with a teaspoon of Aloe Vera juice or Rosewater. Kasturi Manjal’s natural antioxidants help the skin fight the free radicals, unplug the skin pores and help it breathe. The added rosewater/ Aloe Vera helps soothe the skin and control excess oil production.
  • Removing Acne :-
    Acne caused by the blocking of hair follicles by the dirt, excess oil, and other foreign particles which leads to inflammation and infection, is a serious issue among teenagers today. To get rid of acne, it is an excellent solution. Blend the powder with Multani Mitti and a teaspoon of fresh yogurt, apply the prepared mask on your face and wash it off after a while. The antibacterial properties help remove acne and lighten the skin as well.
  • Dark Circles Under the Eye :-
    Prepare a paste by blending the Kasturi Manjal powder with milk or yogurt. Apply the paste over the dark circles and massage the area for 5 minutes. Wash it off after 15-30 minutes. Repeat the process twice a week to reduce the pigmentation under the eyes.
  • Defy Ageing :-
    The antioxidants present in the wild turmeric helps the skin to retain moisture and slow down the process of losing its elasticity. It helps the skin to appear supple, fresh, and free of wrinkles and lines. It also removes facial hairs and helps get skin tan.
