To say that turmeric is the latest buzz ingredient from the beauty industry is an inaccurate statement, especially when it’s a spice sworn by many grandmothers to having healing power for the skin. But how exactly can this yellow spice that often stains our nails and clothes benefit our skin’s health?
What turmeric does more than being a delicious addition to our food and lattes is it helps deal with an array of skin issues thanks to its bioactive component, curcumin. Its powerful antioxidant properties have the ability to calm redness, irritation, puffiness and even scarring to achieve a radiant and glowing appearance. In fact, it wouldn’t be a surprise to learn that some people take turmeric supplements to prevent conditions caused by inflammation. Did you know that beauty icon and actress Priyanka Chopra also once shared her mom’s homemade face mask that includes turmeric as one of the key ingredients?
Thanks to those anti-inflammatory enzymes and antimicrobial properties, it’s no surprise that turmeric is quickly finding its way into our skincare products. Of course, nobody wants a yellow, jaundice-looking skin from applying turmeric directly on to the skin, which is why we’ve rounded up these five amazing turmeric skincare products that we think deserve a spot in your skincare routine.
