The benefits of turmeric for the skin

by Rochelle Rocque

For years, people all over the world have used turmeric for it’s medicinal and cosmetic properties. Turmeric is a bright orange-yellow root found in ground spices, nutritional supplements, and other beauty products.

The health benefits of turmeric mainly come from curcumin, a biologically active ingredient which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.

Turmeric also has a variety of beneficial properties for the skin. Here are some ways turmeric can help your skin:

Some things are good for your skin, but the benefits come with risks and that includes turmeric too.

When applied to the skin, turmeric may temporarily fade or leave yellow stains. This is normal, but if you are allergic to turmeric, direct skin contact with turmeric can cause irritation, redness, and swelling.

Although turmeric is beneficial when consumed, you may need to pay attention to the dosage, the type of product used, and the reaction to other medications you are taking.

Turmeric has low bioavailability, which means that your metabolism will burn turmeric quickly, and your body cannot absorb most of the turmeric and hence need to consume higher quantity to achieve maximum benefits. Turmeric root contains 2-5% curcumin and you will need to consume up to 3 tablespoons of turmeric powder to achieve the best results. Avoid consuming too much turmeric in one course, as it may be contaminated or cause side effects. Therefore, adding turmeric supplements to the diet will help solve the problem. It provides higher dose of curcumin without causing side effects and turmeric extract is not easily contaminated by other substances such as heavy metals.
