In the fresh leaf-juice of ‘amarnath’, add a pinch of turmeric powder; mix well and apply over the face and neck. This bleaches the skin, prevents its dryness and wrinkles, freckles and even cures pimples, acne and blemishes, thus making you look fresh and young.

The juice of the rhizomes, mixed with a little milk and a few drops of lime juice, acts as an effective skin tonic. It should be gently massaged over the face and neck for about an hour and washed with lukewarm water before going to bed at night.

To a teaspoon of coriander or mint leaf juice add a pinch of turmeric powder and apply over the face at bedtime daily. Wash it off with lukewarm after 15 minutes. It is excellent in the treatment of pimples, blackheads, scabs and dry skin.
