Turmeric is great for a lot more than simply making the best curries. For the skin, turmeric is an acne sufferer’s best friend, and it’s a big reason why we use turmeric in our Temu-Temu Face Mask. 5 of the amazing natural skin care benefits of turmeric are:


  1. Speeds up healing – In a study from the West Indian Medical Journal, the healing benefits of turmeric were put to the test. The study found that wounds treated with turmeric healed more quickly and with less scarring than those which were not. For everyday skincare products, this means open blemishes, cuts, and other damages to the skin are given a healing boost from the power of natural turmeric.


  1. Balance oily skin – For acne-prone skin, controlling oil is often a big battle. All too often acne sufferers focus on stripping oil from the skin in an effort to control breakouts, but this actually causes the skin to overproduce even more oil to replace what cleansers or products have stripped away. Ideally, a person wants to balance oil production to control breakouts, and this is just what turmeric does.


  1. Anti-aging – Turmeric isn’t just for acne, and it can bring real benefit to aging concerns as well. Turmeric is naturally anti-inflammatory and packed with antioxidants, which help to repair cell damage to the skin caused by free radicals. In a March 2010 study by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, a moisturizer containing turmeric was found to effective in combating fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots.


  1. Protection from sun damage – If you spend a great deal of time in the sun, turmeric should be a staple in your natural skincare arsenal. Sun damage causes sun spots, fine lines, blood vessel breakage near the skin, and reduced skin elasticity, all of which can be combatted by the natural power of turmeric.


  1. Helps to alleviate inflammatory conditions – Inflammatory conditions of the skin like eczema and rosacea can be difficult for those who have them to battle with. Turmeric has natural anti-inflammatory properties that can help to alleviate the symptoms of these conditions.




Turmeric, the common curry ingredient, packs a bevy of different skin benefits ranging from acne-clearing to anti-aging.
