Today I’ll be sharing 5 different ways to use Vicco turmeric skin cream – a trusted Indian skin care product that has been in the market for ages. I was introduced to this cream by my mom and I’ve been using it for years now and I can honestly tell it is one amazing skin care product no one should miss!

1. Day cream/Moisturizer:
I am not more into makeup these days! A decent kajal and a lip balm – and I am all set to go. This cream from Vicco is the only product I’ve been using lately after cleansing my face every time. Being a person with oily skin, I’ve always struggled with heavy moisturizers. This one makes a perfect day cream that is light on my skin and settles into a matte finish. I sometimes use a slight coat of compact over it if I need to step out of the house.
2. Night cream:
Not only a day cream, it can also be used as your daily night cream if your skin type is oily. Throughout the harsh Indian summer, I used it as my night cream and it helped my skin to achieve a smooth, soft texture. These days, the weather is getting a bit colder here in Chennai and hence I mix a drop of pure vitamin E oil to this cream and apply it on my skin before going to bed every night. It works really nice that way!
3. Anti-Pimple cream:
Sometimes, my skin acts weird. Due to sinus issues, my doctor advised me to avoid frequent head baths. I am only washing my hair like once a week now (about which I’ll be soon sharing in my hair growth update). Due to this, my body heat levels went higher and I started suffering from pimple-like heat bumps all over my face. I happened to see either one or two red pimple after I wake up every morning. This continued for days and that was when I started applying the cream on my face (as a night cream). It controls acne really well. After a week of usage, my eruptions completely stopped. Hence, I apply it a bit more concentrated on acne-prone areas.
4. Dark spot remover:
Don’t ask me how; but this product really helped me fade my facial dark spots left behind by acne. After using it as my day and night cream continuously for few weeks, I saw my spots getting lighter. I don’t have much imperfections on my face – only few countable spots and they were vanished up to 60% after the usage. Though I don’t bother much about the acne spots, I am just letting you that it works this way too. With Vitamin E oil, it works even better but make sure to only apply it at night (with Vitamin E oil) as it tends to turns skin bit oily after 2-3 hours.
5. For minor cuts and wounds:
Be it sun burn, small cuts or insect bites, this cream can be applied as a medicine after cleansing the area. It heals the skin quicker than usual and acts as an disinfectant as it contains turmeric. Don’t panic. This product will NOT stain your skin at all.
P.S: If you are allergic to turmeric in any way, kindly avoid using this cream. It might cause stretchy a light stretchy feel dry-skin types if used without prior moisturization. Being an oily skinned person, I find it good on my skin. But still, I need to moisturize my face in winters to avoid the dry feel. (This is a talc based mattifying cream). If you are on the very-oily side, it might not help with oil control as well. You will need touch ups every 3-4 hours with a compact to avoid a shiny T-zone. And this cream doesn’t contain sunscreen; so you will have to put on a separate sunscreen. Despite the cons, I would call it a wonderful skin cream with so many benefits!
