Did you know that turmeric is helps promote healthy and glowing skin? That’s right: this bright yellow spice has many antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that nourish skin, giving you a natural glow from the inside out. When you consume it regularly, turmeric helps cut down on free radicals that cause oxidative stress and inflammation that can lead to metabolism issues, diseases, and aging — all of which can take a heavy toll on skin.
In fact, free radicals are a primary cause of fast deterioration and aging in our bodies, produced from either our internal cellular metabolism or from our external environment. External free radicals include unhealthy diet and lifestyle, stress, smoking, and UV radiation (1). All of this shows up on our skin — our largest organ.
The good news is that these skin-damaging factors can be prevented and controlled by consuming turmeric on a regular basis, leaving you with natural and healthy glowing skin. Here’s how turmeric is beneficial for your skin:
Reduces Scarring and Hyperpigmentation
If you’re dealing with an uneven skin tone or dark spots, it’s most likely because your body is producing too much melanin (skin pigment). To combat melanin overproduction, curcumin—the active compound in turmeric—uses its powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich properties to prevent melanin overproduction. In doing so, it naturally brightens and rejuvenates the skin (2). Similarly, a study shows that curcmin helps reduce scarring, which is great for people who’ve dealt with acne (3).
Curcmin has been shown to prevent the growth of bacteria—called Propionibacterium acnes—that is associated with acne (4). It also prevents inflammation on a cellular level (5). Studies show that it may directly block ROS, NF-kB, and AP-1 pathways (6), which are associated with chronic inflammation produced by skin cells in the presence of acne-causing bacteria. As you can see, turmeric could be the perfect go-to product for achieving a clear skin.
Adding GoldynGlow’s signature mix, GOLDYN MYLK Turmeric Spice Blend in your daily diet may help lower the chances of skin inflammation such as acne, skin cancer, and psoriasis.
Aging is a normal process caused by an accumulation of free radicals in the cells that induces cell damage and DNA replication errors. But there’s lot of diseases that are age-related—including Alzheimer’s diseases, cancer, and diabetes—and caused by oxidative stress and inflammation from free radicals. One study reviewed several research studies of curcumin, concluding that curcumin may inhibit certain inflammatory pathways in the body, slowing down the aging process (7). Therefore, curcumin can provide a healthier and tighter skin. A study also reported the curcumin can prevent wrinkles, resulting in younger-looking skin (8).
