Skin Benefits of Turmeric

Coupled with its countless benefits, turmeric also benefits the skin greatly. Here are some skin benefits of turmeric:

1. Turmeric treats acne

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions and it requires special care. Where over-the-counter prescriptions may fail you, turmeric will definitely not. With its antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric keeps bacteria from spreading.

2. Turmeric fades scars

The worst part of a breakout is not the breakout itself but the scars they leave behind. These scars take a long time to fade. Tumeric can help hasten up the fading process. Mix one teaspoon of turmeric with half a teaspoon of honey, apply the paste on the affected areas and leave for 15 minutes, then rinse off.



3. Turmeric helps to keep the skin hydrated

Dry skin is a menace and especially worse during the dry season. Turmeric helps to hydrate the skin and speed up the process of removing dead skin cells. Treating your skin with turmeric and milk paste will leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated.

4. Turmeric gives the skin a natural glow

It contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that provide glow and luster to the skin.

5. Turmeric can help prevent premature skin aging and sun damage

The damage sun rays cause to the skin cannot be overemphasized. Tumeric’s antioxidant compounds help prevent free radicals from affecting the skin’s elasticity.
