Simple Beauty: Get Glowing Skin with Turmeric - Henry Happened


Y Simple Beauty: Get Glowing Skin with TurmericBy gerbermom / March 14, 2012 I’m starting a new series on Simple Beauty because I’ve discovered how good it feels to pamper your skin. This discovery was followed shortly by the realization that I can’t afford salon facials – or fancy beauty products! Whether it’s using Kool-Aid to brighten blonde or making your own rose petal body oil I’ll share easy, budget-friendly ideas for looking your best. “Secret Beauty Weapon” I read recently that actress Thandie Newton recently called turmeric her “secret beauty weapon.” Isn’t that just for curry?

Mango: Medicinal Fruit

Mango: Medicinal Fruit

My favorite fruit is mango. I could have it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I could have it raw or ripe. I could have it in a pulp form, cut in diamond pieces or in a mango milkshake. I love Aam-Papad and love all pickles made with mango. My best memories from my childhood are from a visit to a Mango farm, and climbing mango trees to pluck fresh mangoes from the mango trees. Fortunately, UK and Hong Kong where I lived for almost 7 of the last decade allowed mango imports from India. Unfortunately, USA still does not allow it. Hopefully, that will change soon. The nutritional value of mangoes
Besides being tasty, does mango have any nutritional or medicinal value? Fortunately, it does. Kusum Budhwar has written extensively about Mangoes in her book, “Romance of the Mango’ the only complete book of the king of fruits.
