Turmeric is perfect for sensitive skin as people who are suffering from rosacea or eczema will benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties, soothing flare-ups. Acne-prone skin also greatly benefit from applying turmeric on the surface, as it contains curcumin, which works to fight the bacteria that play a critical role in acne formation.
Turmeric also does good to ageing skin, as it contains antioxidants, fighting off free radicals such as the harmful ageing effects of sun damage and harsh UV rays, delaying the formation of wrinkles and dark spots. Conventional methods of applying turmeric on your skin are with DIY masks or just adding it into your diet.

TURMERIC FOR EYE INFECTION RELIEF
To make an effective eye infection compress, combine two tablespoons powdered turmeric, one tablespoon honey, one tablespoon organic, unfiltered apple cider with 1 cup warm water, soaking a facecloth in the
the mixture and applying it to the infected.
TURMERIC FOR BRUISE RELIEF
To make a bruise-fading compress, soak a facecloth or hand towel in half a cup of warmed water, squeezing the cloth of excess liquid and coating with one tablespoon of powdered turmeric, applying it to the bruised area as often as necessary until pain/bruising subsides.
