Did you know? Turmeric is widely used as an ingredient for lots of skin products. Aside from its natural pain relief properties for muscle, nerves, and joints, it provides renewal and regeneration for our skin. Moreover, its anti-inflammatory effect makes it one of the best alternative pain relief options out there! If these topical pain relief methods work wonders on the inside, what more to our most exposed part of the body? Let's explore some of the turmeric benefits for skin.
Luke Wood, a health and wellness coach, attests to the idea of the positive effects of turmeric beyond diet and nutrition. He says, "Even though turmeric has become one of the primary spices in cooking, it's doing some miracles outside the kitchen. For instance, it has natural antibacterial properties that I take advantage of from time to time."
Whether you're looking for preventive measures or treatment, here are some common ways of fighting skin problems with turmeric:
Relieving skin wounds and irritations
Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness, itching, and swelling from bug bites, burns, and acne breakouts. Its antibacterial property has been proven in the past 50 years and could be a potential antibiotic ingredient. Its main active ingredient, curcumin, fights off infection from cuts, scrapes, and splinters. To apply, rub ANSHI Total Healing Turmeric gently to the affected area of the skin anywhere on the body or face.
Treating psoriasis and eczema
While these are two different skin problems, they exhibit almost the same skin symptoms. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease and more serious than eczema, so it's best to seek professional help if you cannot tell them apart. In the meantime, to reduce the inflammation at the skin's surface, you can also apply ANSHI Total Healing Turmeric on the red patches visible on the skin. For best results leave on and wrap with a bandage or cloth to allow full absorption.
Face rejuvenation and body scrub
You can prevent skin problems even before they turn up. Turmeric contains antimicrobial and antioxidant properties, which accelerates skin cells' regeneration. Using turmeric regularly by masking and scrubbing removes accumulated germs and foreign substances from our skin. For masking or scrubbing, try ANSHI Total Healing Turmeric.
