Why turmeric milk is the tonic your skin needs

Have you ever tried out the golden-hued – and quite famous – turmeric milk? This traditional Indian drink is usually prepared by warming up milk (the diary or plant-based variety) with turmeric – often adding cinnamon and ginger too!

Over and above its comforting taste, turmeric milk – which is sometimes also called golden milk – is packed with benefits for your body. Have a look at some of the top reasons why it a tonic that your skin will love – and need!

A radiant serving of antioxidants

Antioxidants offer perfect protection against cell damage, and turmeric milk is packed with it! Curcumin, which the active component in turmeric, helps to fight off cell damage and free radicals, making it ideal for boosting your skin’s condition! When antioxidant-rich cinnamon and ginger are mixed into turmeric milk, it makes for an even more powerful health drink – so, why not mix things up if you are planning to make this delicious drink!

Brighter skin in just a few sips!

You read that, right! Because of its rich antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, curcumin can help clear your complexion and reduce breakouts and acne.

Now, here’s the good part: turmeric milk will provide the ultimate reset for your skin as it restores your skin’s natural glow and makes dull skin a distant memory

Golden milk (Turmeric milk) recipe (via Healthline)


1/2 cup (120ml) of unsweetened milk of your choice (dairy-free plant “milk” is a great option)

1 tsp of turmeric

1 small piece of grated fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp of ginger powder

1/2 tsp of cinnamon powder

1 pinch of ground black pepper

1 tsp of honey or maple syrup (optional)


Mix all the ingredients in a small saucepan or pot and bring to a boil.

Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until fragrant and flavorful.

Strain the drink through a fine strainer into mugs and top with a pinch of cinnamon.
