Turmeric…more than just a spice.

Have you tried including turmeric in your skin care regimen? If so, did you experience the golden-orange after-glow :)? We were pleasantly surprised by that but we didn’t mind the temporary hue because it’s oh so good for your skin!

A relative to ginger, turmeric has also been touted for its immunity-boosting, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial qualities. What does this mean for skin? It means that it’s a wonderful ingredient to include in your skin care regimen to help keep skin clear and younger-looking.

Curcumin, the revered chemical component in turmeric, has been known to nurture skin with its anti-aging benefits to help fight free radicals that can cause premature signs of aging and manage other skin-related issues such as acne and promote the healing of acne scars.

Try including turmeric in your facial masks or try our Pumpkin Honey Masque to keep skin radiant and glowing. As noted earlier, Turmeric can stain, so avoid wearing white or using white towels when working with this skin-loving spice. And, thoroughly cleanse your skin to rinse off the turmeric.

If you plan to include turmeric in your diet whether in smoothies or in soups, add a dash of pepper to help increase the absorption of Curcumin. This body-loving ingredient can enhance the liver’s ability to detoxify the system, ease irritable bowl syndrome (IBS) symptoms, enhance mood, along with other health benefits.

So, the next time you happen upon turmeric, you may see it the way we do…that it’s more than just a spice. Let’s have fun eating and pampering our way to healthy skin! Thank you for being kind to your body!
