Turmeric and its important role in your skincare routine
One of the most liberating things about organic skincare products is the completely natural ingredients that are used to create them. It’s amazing how many fantastic botanicals are available, the different roles that they play, and benefits that they have. Plus, the fact that there are no harmful chemicals in them is an added bonus.
One natural skincare ingredient that we absolutely love is turmeric. Used for many years to help heal a whole number of conditions, turmeric is also used for cosmetic reasons due to its wealth of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.
What is turmeric?
First and foremost, turmeric is a spice belonging to the ginger family, and it has been used in East India and the Middle East for thousands of years. It’s a very precious ingredient and is highly regarded as one of the most highly prized spices in existence. Due to its peppery flavor, turmeric is usually added to curries to give it a spicy, punchy kick. Ancient medicinal uses began when it was recognized as an anti-inflammatory agent, which meant it could be used to treat conditions such as jaundice, menstrual problems, bruises, and chest pain. Turmeric is made from the root of the Curcuma Longa plant.
Is turmeric good for my skin?
In addition to its medicinal properties, turmeric has extremely valuable benefits for your skin too. It helps reduce redness, because it’s an anti-inflammatory, and if you suffer from dark circles under your eyes you’ll find that turmeric can reduce these too. Thanks to being packed full of antibacterial properties, turmeric can also disinfect the skin which helps to combat acne. In fact, it can even help to diminish acne scarring and dark spots.
On top of using turmeric in your skincare routine, we recommend drinking turmeric tea at night. This way, it can work effectively, and provide your body with important antioxidants as you sleep. Whilst organic skincare products can help with combatting ailments, it’s important to remember that eating and drinking healthily benefits your skin too, and drinking turmeric tea is a great way to absorb natural goodness.
