Benefits: Adding Turmeric to Face Masks 101…
First, how to pronounce it!? So lost, is it: TWO-MERIC, TURM-ERIC, TOOM-RICK? Nope, it’s TUR-MURH-IK!
Known more as the spice that dyes entire kitchens orange. There’s also serious benefits to adding turmeric to your face masks. No fad, this is a beauty trick used for centuries across the world. But why?
Here’s a breakdown of the main purposes one would be adding turmeric to face masks:
- Lightens skin, dark spots, ACNE SCARS (also loved for treating dark under eye circles)
- Helps w/acne & clearing-up breakouts
- Cause it’s an anti-inflammatory, calms skin + tightens pores
- Super high in antioxidants (meaning it slows cell damage) meaning it’s great for anti-aging
WHY Turmeric Works on Skin?
Yes, we all know turmeric is a zapper of dark spots, but seriously- how does turmeric pull this off?
Curcumin is the answer!
Contained in turmeric, curcumin stops skin pigmentation. Consider it, a natural bleaching agent on skin! That’s probably why people are pinning all kinds of “teeth whitening turmeric” ideas on Pinterest too…
Secondly, CURCUMIN’s also an amazing ANTI-INFLAMMATORY agent said to rival what’s found in ibuprofen (minus toxic effects)!
DOWNSIDES to Adding Turmeric to Face Masks:
Sorry, yes – it can STAIN! Ever cook with it? Yikes, it’s like running under orange paint powder! Fret not, here’s some simple tricks to removing any possible orange, skin staining.
Mixing in some milk seems to be the oldest, no staining face method…. But, if you don’t have milk in your house like myself. Mix-up a simple sugar scrub (water + sugar). After washing of your turmeric mask, follow-up with the sugar scrub. It’ll lift-off any extra orange left on your skin… Bye, bye pumpkin cheeks!
