Skin Care Benefits of Turmeric

The world cannot seem to get enough turmeric. In recent years, leaders in the health & beauty industry have noticed the amazing effects of this popular spice ingredient. Often used in South Asian curries, this aromatic root is not only delicious but highly beneficial for your skin.

The secret lies in curcumin. Curcumin is the active ingredient that gives turmeric its orange-yellow hue and antioxidant properties. Raw turmeric is so potent, that it’s known to treat many skin ailments including acne, psoriasis, eczema, discoloration, and scabies. Great for improving skin’s health and appearance, Eastern women have used turmeric in exfoliants and cleansers for centuries.

There are so many amazing and healing benefits of turmeric, that we decided to include the main reasons turmeric should be included in your skincare routine. 

Treats Acne

Turmeric’s antimicrobial properties are great for fighting off skin bacteria which cause inflammation and acne breakouts. Using toners or masks containing turmeric allows the skin to absorb these antiseptic properties to maintain smooth skin, longer. 

Removes Dead Skin Cells

A natural exfoliant, turmeric is great for removing dead skin cells, removing blackheads and reducing pore size. 

Soothes Dry Skin

Whether your skin is naturally dry or you’re experiencing colder climate, turmeric can make your skin appear more supple, smooth and vibrant. Getting scrub or turmeric-infused facial might just be what you need to jump back after the blitz of winter!

Protects Against Sun Damage & Aging

Topical creams and supplements containing turmeric were shown to improve signs of aging and sun damage. Turmeric's antioxidant properties help to restore the skin’s elasticity after long UVB exposure. No matter the age, it’s never too late to include turmeric in your moisturizer or sunscreen for supple, glowing skin.

Heals Scars & Wounds

Did we say turmeric is antiseptic? We cannot stress enough the calming, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects of turmeric. Whether using topical treatments with turmeric or crushing it up straight out of the fridge, it helps with treating wounds and healing scars faster. 

Removes Dark Circles, Spots & Discoloration

Curcumin is also a brightening agent that gives turmeric root the ability to get rid of dark under eye circles, spots, and hyperpigmentation.
