Points to Remember:
- Please take good quality kesar while making this serum.
- The kesar and turmeric present in the serum will stain your skin a little bit for around 10 minutes after application so I would advice you to apply this serum only at night.
- The stain goes off within a few minutes of application.
- You can also add any essential oil to this serum.
This serum will help you to brighten your skin, works as an excellent night serum, it hydrates and nourishes your skin and will also help to fade off any dark spots or brown spots from your face. You will wake up with bright and glowing skin. It works instantly due to the presence of potent ingredients like saffron and turmeric.
