15 Amazing Skin Benefits of Turmeric

Turmeric is so much more than an ingredient in Indian cuisine.


Turmeric is truly one of nature’s boons to humans and using turmeric for skin can do wonders for it. Read on to find out:

  1. Turmeric lightens skin owing to the fact that it contains Curcumin, which reduces the production of melanin.
  2. Acne doesn’t stand a chance when you use turmeric for face owing to its potent anti-inflammatory properties.
  3. Its strong anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties can heal cuts, mild burns and wounds.
  4. Turmeric can reverse the damage caused to your skin by UV rays, pollution and has anti-ageing properties.
  5. If you have sensitive skin that irritates and itches often, turmeric can help soothe it. It is also helpful to soothe skin in the case of certain skin conditions like eczema.
  6. Did you know that a paste made from turmeric can control the growth of unwanted facial hair? Try it regularly to see a difference.
  7. Turmeric halts the proliferation of cancer cells and hence helps fight skin cancer.
  8. Turmeric has anti-fungal properties and can help fight ringworm.
  9. Drive mosquitos away with turmeric oil. No more bites!
  10. If your skin is prone to eruptions, make a mustard-turmeric paste and apply it on boils. They will start to subside owing to its anti-bacterial properties.
  11. Mix turmeric with coconut oil and apply it to your cracked heels. Use regularly to heal fully.
  12. Stretch marks: Massaging the mixture of chickpea flour and turmeric might lighten the stretch marks (though we could not cite evidence).
