Turmeric is an Asian plant closely related to the ginger family.
It might immediately sound familiar if you are a curry fan, as turmeric is the spice that gives this dish its specific flavor.
The active ingredients in turmeric can also bring a multitude of benefits for skin beauty. It is often used as a base ingredient in sun care skin products.
Turmeric is an antiseptic and its curative properties help prevent and treat spots and also dark circles.
In addition, turmeric masks help re-balance the skin, cleaning it in an efficient way.
Besides all the cosmetic benefits, it is claimed that turmeric can also slow the process of hair growth.
This mask will help reduce dark circles by smoothing and hydrate the skin under your eyes.
You will need:
- 2 TSP turmeric
- 2 TSP pineapple juice
About the ingredients
Turmeric is originally from Southeast of Asia, but now the largest producer (80% of world production) is India. It is also grown in Indonesia, South America and sporadically in Africa.
If like me you’re a fan of curry then it is likely that you’ve got some turmeric in your kitchen cupboard as it is one of the main ingredients. It is also included on the list of spices that give the specific taste to Worcestershire sauce.
From my research, I learned that turmeric has anti-inflammatory properties. Not only that, but turmeric is also highly effective in cosmetics, frequently used as a key ingredient in sun protection skin products.
