How To Make Your Skin Look Crazy-Good With Just One Ingredient

For the last couple of years, I've seen beauty secrets that have been staples in South Asian countries for thousands of years suddenly become trendy in the West. And I'm glad everyone's finally catching on, because we all deserve to be able to whip up miraculous beauty products with things we can find in our kitchens.

And honestly, who doesn't want to look as good as an Indian bride?
Here, my six favorite DIY turmeric recipes to make you radiant.
