The Benefits of Turmeric
Made from the root of Curcuma Zedoaria, Turmeric is a beautiful golden-hued spice that has steadfastly become a beloved health food. Gaining recognition amongst health gurus, turmeric has found fame in North America for its countless health quality. Turns out, turmeric is not just a spice for making golden milk lattes and fragrant curries. Turmeric is amazing for skin care.
Ancient Cosmetics has incorporated turmeric in a variety of natural skin care products to harness turmeric’s anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Turmeric has been long used by Eastern cultures in beauty regimens and medicine, but North America has only just caught on. Used in therapeutic preparations, turmeric played an essential role in China, India, and any country to which turmeric is native. For centuries, a turmeric paste is applied to the skin of the bride and groom in India to help their skin glow and diminish any acne- causing bacteria.
Made from grinding down the root of the Curcuma Zedoaria, a type of ginger plant in Southeast Asia, turmeric boasts an impressive list of attributes, making it a must-have in skincare routines. The yellow-hued powder is a natural anti-inflammatory and does a wonderful job at calming down redness and irritation as well as aiding in evening out skin tone and reducing the size of breakouts. Coupled with its anti-microbial properties, turmeric keeps unpleasant bacteria and germs at bay making it a wonderful natural ingredient for combatting acne. The anti-fungal nature of turmeric even helps against the more painful cystic outbreaks.
All of Turmeric’s healing properties stem from the active compound, Curcumin, which is a powerful antioxidant. The curcumin in turmeric helps reduce fine lines and further calm down the skin. Curcumin particularly targets skin damage that has been caused by UV radiation aka sun exposure. Turmeric’s natural antioxidant, curcumin, helps lighten acne scars and hyperpigmentation resulting in brighter softer skin. Not to mention the natural yellow pigment of turmeric will give your skin a lovely sun-kissed glow.
The myriad of skincare qualities that turmeric possesses and the stamp of approval from grandmothers around the world make turmeric a must in natural skincare routines. Anti- fungal, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant, turmeric is a triple threat. Turmeric is definitely worth giving a try for those prone to acne or needing to soothe congested skin.
