Research on the benefits of turmeric and curcumin have been conducted in two scenarios, when turmeric is digested and when applied topically.  Both methods have shown positive results in relation to skin health.

As an anti-inflammatory, turmeric can reduce redness, swelling and scaring, and help to treat conditions such as psoriasis.

As an antioxidant, turmeric can impact the skin cells and in turn tighten the appearance of skin, reversing sun damage and slowing the aging process. 

Turmeric is a natural antiseptic and antibacterial so can be used as a natural face cleanser.  When applied topically to the skin it will help to inhibit the growth of blemish causing bacteria and protect the skin against infection.

The curcumin in turmeric has been shown to lighten skin by inhibiting the pigment melanin. From this evidence, it would be fair to conclude that turmeric can therefore be used to treat dark circles, spots or uneven pigmentation.

Another less documented effect of turmeric on skin is the potential to slow the growth of unwanted facial hair with regular use, and even improving the appearance of stretch marks.

Plus it is a great philosophy to put on your skin what you are happy to eat, so turmeric definitely ticks the box there!
