Before talking about turmeric benefits for skin, I think it is interesting to know the turmeric origins and what it contains.
Turmeric is a spice that is from ginger’s family plant. It is an ancient spice that originated from India, and they use it in various ways such as medicine, color dye, food, etc.
When it comes to Turmeric ingredients consists of two significant elements, which are anti-inflammatory and antioxidants components.
You will find these two components in MANY spices, food, cremes formulas, and it is essential to know what they do when you use something that contains any of them.
Antioxidants are substances that act as protection or defensive mechanism for your skin against any environmental or physical changes.
whereas the anti-inflammatory components that reduce swelling, redness, inflammation, and more uses in treating many things in your body.
I am obsessed with any natural ingredient that I can use as a skincare product.
The side effects are way minimum than chemically produced products, not to mention how cheap their ingredients are!
Moreover, although natural skin treatments sometimes might take a long time to show you some results, the results will last you for quite some time, while chemical treatments results will show faster but might fade away within a short time.
Back to turmeric, the vibrant yellow spice that I am impressed by!
I like to drink it, eat it and take care of my skin with it.
