Turmeric and Its Skin Benefits

Turmeric is a plant native to Southeast Asia and India, where it was first used between 610 A.D. C and 320 A.C. The main secret of turmeric is found in its components, curcuminoids and curcumins, to which antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects are attributed. Turmeric also contains vitamins and minerals such as: vitamin C, E and K, niacin, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc and essential oils.

Turmeric not only helps prevent many diseases, but has been successfully used to treat multiple skin problems. Exposure to environmental factors and various external agents contributes to the production of free radicals and turmeric plays a crucial role in neutralizing these molecules harmful to the skin, mitigating or attenuating the effects caused by the environmental factor.

Another benefit of turmeric is the contribution of elasticity, it also improves the microcirculation of the skin, which contributes to having a more robust and healthy dermis and improves the ability of the skin to create new tissue.

Turmeric also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial qualities that allow it to help with conditions such as eczema and has the ability to suppress the PHK protein, linked to the appearance of psoriasis.

It prevents the appearance of spots; the continuous use of products containing turmeric can contribute to the decrease of melanin, which is the pigment behind dark spots and different forms of hyperpigmentation. The lack or excess of this component (melanin) in our body can lead to dermatological problems.

If you want to obtain these benefits, such as those we mentioned above, some can be achieved with the regular consumption of turmeric in food, through the use of supplements or through the use of skin products that have this ingredient, it is worth mentioning that their effect is even greater when both resources are combined.
