Turmeric is tasty, it smells and looks good, but what can it do for your skin?
Not only is turmeric a marvelous culinary spice, but it also has a lot of topical benefits.
Turmeric is a plant that comes from the ginger family and it has been a staple in ayurvedic medicine. The most active ingredient of turmeric is called curcumin.
Turmeric is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. The curcumin keeps your skin protected from free-radical damage and it may aid wound healing.
In addition to adding some brightness to your skin, it evens the tone and encourages collagen production.
Because of its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial qualities, turmeric can help reduce enlarged pores, reduce acne scarring, build collagen, and allow your skin to look firmer and supple.
