Most old age remedies for healing and brightening contain turmeric as the primary ingredient. Does this still hold true?
Turmeric, haldi or manjal, is a miracle spice. A common household item, it can be used in multiple ways to improve our skin. In Ayurveda, it has become the hero ingredient for many popular products like Nalpamaradi Thailam, an anti-tan oil.
But what makes it so versatile?
Turmeric possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-oxidant properties. These help deal with the most common skin conditions, like acne with ease.
Here are the top 5 ways turmeric can be used for skin
- Skin brightening
- Protection against sun damage
- Hydrating dry skin
- Prevent pre-mature ageing
A healthy, natural glow can be achieved by using turmeric with a cream moisturizer. It works wonders for under eye shadows and even helps reduce tan. The anti-oxidants present can help fight free radicals and boost radiance. Whereas the anti-inflammatory property deals with burns, soothing and brightening your skin at the same time.
In our pollution filled environment, UV rays have become a major concern for everyone. Sun damage has increased skin problems. This spice not only adds flavor to everyday food items, it also helps combat these problems thanks to its rich anti-oxidant content.
Acne has been a common skin condition regardless of region, weather or age. The collection of sebum and clogging of pores can end up in severe breakouts. Turmeric, an anti-inflammatory, helps reduce active acne and keep future ones at bay. It can be mixed with hydrating ingredients like aloe or honey to create a nourishing face mask.
Turmeric can deeply hydrate and revitalize skin while alleviating symptoms of dryness. It gently exfoliates the skin to allow newer cells to show and eliminates the dry, flaky look of dead cells.
Elastin, an enzyme which helps keep your skin tight cannot be produced if the enzyme elastase is present in a higher quantity. This can affect the structure and elasticity of your skin. Our magic spice can keep elastase production at bay. It also has anti-oxidant properties which fight the damage for pollution and keep your skin young and radiant.
Turmeric has a variety of other uses. It can be used to soothe psoriasis and heal stretch marks. At Tuya, we have used it in a number of formulations to provide you with organic, healthy and 100% ayurvedic skincare. Here are a few:
