Why We Love Turmeric

Why We Love Turmeric

The health benefits of including turmeric in your diet are well documented, but its beauty benefits and how it can help you achieve healthy skin is taking the skincare industry by storm!

And before dismissing it as yet another fad, do keep in mind that traditional cultures have used turmeric in their beauty regimens for several centuries.

Turmeric is basically a super powerful anti-inflammatory agent. This is the reason why it has shown remarkable results in helping address skin concerns like acne and rosacea, pigmentation, eczema and psoriasis. Curcumin – the compound that gives turmeric its sunny, golden hue – has anti oxidant activity comparable to that of Vitamins C and E. This is one of the reasons it helps your skin stay supple and elastic longer, thereby slowing down the effects of ageing.

There are several ways in which turmeric can be made part of your daily lifestyle – be it via your diet, or in topical applications.

Turmeric powder is derived from the root of the turmeric plant – the root is dried and then ground before bottling as a spice. It has a peppery taste with a slightly bitter tang and can be added to soups, stews, scrambled eggs, curries or even smoothies and fruit juices for an amazing flavor.

If you can lay your hands on fresh turmeric root, grate a small amount into your soup or steep it in hot water along with slices of fresh ginger to create your very own anti-oxidant turmeric tea. Boil it in milk along with ginger, cinnamon, black peppercorns; add a dash of honey and voila – the most comforting cold weather drink you can lay your hands on!

Natural skincare brands incorporate turmeric root extracts into oils, creams, face washes and scrubs. Topical application of turmeric via such products helps in combating acne, lightening stretch marks and acne scars, addresses pigmentation and makes skin more elastic.

If there is a faint yellow stain, just follow up with a swipe of toner on a cotton pad and you should be good to go!
