Turmeric brings to mind flavorful Indian inspired dishes, not something that you are likely to use externally on your skin.
When consumed, turmeric provides the body with some incredible health benefits, and in fact, has even been proven to protect against disease thanks to its extremely powerful anti-inflammatory properties.
These same anti-inflammatory properties provide wonderful benefits for the skin, as inflammation is the key cause of problematic and dull looking skin.
We carry two products that contain turmeric to brighten and rejuvenate your skin, our Enzyme Exfoliator, and our Enzyme Peel. Keep reading to find out exactly why you should consider adding this powerful ingredient to your skincare regime.
Antibacterial Properties Help To Heal Acne
Bacteria is the bane of an acne sufferer, and it just causes blemishes to multiply. Applying a product with antibacterial properties to the skin is extremely helpful for killing off bacteria, and giving the skin a chance to heal. However, most antibacterial agents are very harsh and full of synthetic chemicals.
Turmeric is a natural way to kill off this bacteria as it has powerful antibacterial properties, but won’t aggravate your skin.
Turmeric can also help acne sufferers by controlling oil levels in the skin thanks to fatty acids and phytosterols.
Antioxidants Keep The Skin Youthful
Powerful antioxidants in turmeric help keep the skin youthful by fighting off free radicals that contribute to the signs of aging. External free radicals come in the form of cigarette smoke, air pollution, and UV rays of the sun. Turmeric helps to neutralize these free radicals, therefore helping to keep the skin beautifully young and radiant.
Anti-Inflammatory Properties Treat Chronic Skin Conditions
Chronic, itchy and sometimes painful skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis are a result of inflammation in the skin or body.
Curcumin, a powerful substance in Turmeric, can stop inflammation in its tracks and calm symptoms associated with inflammatory conditions, namely itching and irritation of the skin.
If you have dealt with a chronic skin condition such as one of the above mentioned, and have tried everything with no results, then give turmeric a try, you won’t be disappointed!
To reap the excellent benefits of turmeric at home, you can try a DIY mask, but these often cause staining of the skin. Instead, try our Enzyme mask and Exfoliator. They will help to heal, soothe and treat your skin, promote collagen formation as well as a beautiful glow!
