Turmeric for Beauty and Skincare

Turmeric is used in beauty and skincare treatments to prevent breakouts, heal skin, and for its needle-free, anti-aging benefits. Use turmeric in skincare to:

  • Fight cellular damage- Curcumin is proven to promote longevity and anti-aging and fights cellular damage that causes aging!
  • Increase Collagen Production- the same properties that speed wound healing seem to help promote collagen production.
  • Get a Youthful Glow- As we age, the build-up of skin cells causes skin to appear dull and sallow. Turmeric may help cell turnover and restores your skin’s natural glow.
  • Fade Age spots- turmeric works to diminish and fade age spots in the same way as scarring.
  • Diminish Breakouts and Fade Acne Scars

How to add Turmeric to your Beauty Routine

  1. Eat it!

Make turmeric lattes, turmeric teas, smoothies, or enjoy it in your favourite curry. Its anti-inflammatory properties will heal your skin from the inside out.

  1. Make a mask

For anti-aging benefits, a youthful glow and to prevent breakouts try this at home skin treatment with turmeric:

Mix equal parts Greek yogurt with ground turmeric and raw honey and apply as a mask. Leave on for 10-15 minutes. Any longer may temporarily stain your skin turning your glow into a 1980’s tanning treatment. You may also want to think twice about using white towels to wash it off.

So, what are you waiting for? Get glowing! Add turmeric to your favourite recipes and beauty routine today.

Note - If you are allergic to the spice, please don’t use as a beauty treatment. Try a patch test if you’re concerned about allergies.
