The Benefits of Turmeric on the Skin

Turmeric is an antibacterial spice that can be used on the skin to cleanse and nourish it. It contains a compound known as curcumin, which has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. Turmeric, for example, aids in wound healing just like Manuka honey by reducing inflammation and oxidation. Improved healing can help minimize scarring.

Turmeric's anti-inflammatory properties make it an effective treatment for psoriasis, and the National Psoriasis Foundation recommends supplementing with turmeric or incorporating it into one's diet. A study conducted in India discovered that when turmeric was combined with a plant called neem, a paste was formed that could be used to treat skin rashes. Turmeric has been shown in some studies to be an effective treatment for other skin conditions such as eczema or alopeciaBenefits of using Turmeric on your skin 

Turmeric can also be used to make a facial mask for acne treatment. To make a homemade turmeric mask, combine 1/4 teaspoon turmeric and 5 tablespoons plain yogurt. The resulting mixture should be applied to the face and left on for approximately 20 minutes or until completely dry, whichever comes first. After that, it should be washed away.

Additionally, a turmeric facial mask made with small amounts of Greek yogurt, honey, and turmeric can be made. The mask should be worn for approximately 15 minutes.

Due to the possibility of allergic reactions and staining the skin, first-time users should add a pinch of turmeric to yogurt and dab a small amount on their arm for 24 to 48 hours. Redness, swelling, and irritation are all symptoms of an allergic reaction. After a few hours, any staining will fade.
