Should Turmeric Be Part of Your Skin-Care Routine?
Many say turmeric makes just about everything taste better, but did you know that the wonders of this vibrant yellow spice span well beyond the kitchen frying pan? It’s true, and we’re hardly the first ones to discover this. Ayurvedic, Chinese and Egyptian traditional medicines have long used turmeric as a botanical supplement. In fact, South Asian brides slather their entire bodies in a paste made with the spice as a ritual before their wedding in hopes of having an ethereal glow when it comes time to say “I do.” Turmeric ingredients in skin care are claimed to calm the skin, soothe redness and help you achieve major dewiness.
Antioxidants are amazing, but turmeric’s other properties deserve recognition, too. Turmeric is also notable for its anti-inflammatory properties, according to board-certified dermatologist Rachel Nazarian, M.D., of Schweiger Dermatology Group in NYC. “It might be a good choice for those with acne, rosacea, and those with a tendency to have pigmentary problems of their skin, like dark spots.”
