I came across this article on the many beauty benefits of turmeric and I loved it, so I’m sharing it with all of you!
Turmeric is one of those magical skincare and wellness ingredients. It’s a simple root from the Curcuma Ionga plant and has so many uses and benefits! It’s been used in traditional Chinese and Indian healing practices for centuries due to it’s amazing anti-inflammatory effects.
Use it as a toothpaste to naturally whiten your teeth and support gum health. Use it in a yogurt and honey mask to soften and brighten your skin. Drink it with a little cream and black pepper to encourage health and reduce inflammation! *Be sure to get pure turmeric and not the dyed stuff that comes cheap! Check the source and use the good stuff – it’s well worth it and won’t stain your skin! Unsure? You can also buy turmeric root and shave and use it like you would use ginger!
