Many of you may be familiar with turmeric as a spice in your kitchen, but did you know that turmeric has amazing benefits for your skin?
Turmeric is a plant that grows most commonly in southeast Asia. This plant produces beautiful, white flowers; however, the root is what is harvested and used, which is similar to ginger. The root (technically a rhizome) is ground into a powder and is a main spice in curry. It is also commonly used as a natural dye in butter, mustard, cheese, and more. It has also been used for a very long time in the natural health community.
The active ingredient in turmeric is curcumin and has very potent anti-inflammatory properties. It also has been found to lessen the effects of UV damage as a natural antioxidant! Curcumin is also naturally antibacterial, which is good news for those who struggle with blemishes! It is even known to help your collagen levels, which keep your skin looking young and healthy. Because of these properties, turmeric is definitely an ingredient you want in your skincare routine!
Due to the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric is known to help revive the skin and bring out its natural glow. These properties also mean that skin can repair itself more quickly, minimizing scars, rashes, or skin irritations, and even dark circles.
