Benefits of Tumeric in Skincare:
Curcumin, a bio-active component in turmeric is very rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Turmeric helps to reduce inflammation in the skin thus aiding in its healthy functionality. It also helps to brighten the skin’s complex therefore aiding in glow and luster. It can also act as an antiseptic therefore making it a great healing agent for acneic skin types. Tumeric is an excellent ingredient for addressing inflammatory skin conditions such as aging, pigmentation, acne, psoriasis, and eczema!
