When you think of the spice turmeric, a tasty curry dish might come to your mind, but hold that thought! Turmeric is not only delicious; it’s also a great beauty therapy for your skin.
Turmeric is a spice used mainly in Asian cooking, especially in Indian cuisine. We’re probably familiar with the Indian spice mix called curry. Turmeric plays a big role in that spice mixture which gives the dish a good flavor and texture. For centuries Turmeric has been a major ingredient in most of the Indian dishes.
Turmeric is bright orange-yellow in colour, with a light, complementary taste and smell. But just like many of natures amazing gifts, it has valuable skin benefits as well! Indian women, in particular, have been using Turmeric as a skin care product for centuries. They either use it in a paste form or soak the whole dried turmeric in coconut oil which they later apply before their bath, giving them a smooth and toned skin. They also apply this oil on kids that help them to keep away from all kind of skin rashes. Turmeric is indeed a magic of nature
The skin benefit of turmeric is numerous. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness from blemishes and the antibacterial properties in the spice can both disinfect the skin and combat acne. It also can help reduce the appearance of dark circles and dark spots. In fact it is the one natural cleanser that even reduces the spots which remains after chickenpox. People with oily skin or acne scars who use turmeric on a regular basis can expect a noticeable improvement in the quality of their skin. Turmeric is also said to heal wounds. In addition, turmeric is an antioxidant that fends off free radical damage that can cause premature skin aging and sun damage, and it can also help to correct an uneven skin tone.Its amazing ability to clear off acne marks has made turmeric an important ingredient in many of the beauty products recently. Vicco Turmeric Skin Cream is a well known product in the cosmetic industry which claims to use turmeric as its basic ingredient and we have many people who have been using the same for years and give the complete credit for their glowing skin to this turmeric based product.
In addition to being used as a spice and a beauty product, turmeric is also used as a dye, and some people use it as an all-natural self-tanner. But before you slather yourself in this spice in order to look tan, know that very few skin tones match turmeric perfectly. If you have light skin especially, turmeric will probably temporarily stain your skin yellow, while other skin tones might get a radiant glow. Don’t let it scare you, though. If you’re apprehensive about trying a treatment, apply it before bed so that if your skin does change color it does not happen right before you need to leave the house.
There are many who are behind this nature’s true skin toner and at times misuse its qualities just to sell their products. Beware of such products because these might have some anti reverse effects on your skin. Turmeric is so common and widely used product that it is available in your nearest grocer shop.
