Do you know that Turmeric Can Beautify Your Skin?
Can you dry up pimples, fade dark spots, slow the aging process, and protect from dangerous UV rays, all with one natural ingredient? If you’re talking about turmeric, the main ingredient in curry, the answer is yes.
Women aged 25 to 55 were able to reduce the appearance of age spots by an average of 15 percent after eight weeks of using a turmeric cream twice a day. Our skin is affected by many factors, including our environment, health, the food we eat, and more. Turmeric, a renowned ancient spice, has a direct impact on all aspects of skin health.
Seven Turmeric Skin Benefits
Modern medicine has embraced turmeric, with over 3,000 publications dealing with the root over the past 25 years. Some of the most recent studies have involved turmeric’s effects on the skin. In addition to scientific evidence, we have other clues as to how turmeric may help us to look younger.
1) Protects from sun damage
In a 2009 animal study, researchers applied turmeric extract to skin that had been damaged by long-term, low-dose ultraviolet radiation. They found that it protected the skin from UV rays, prevented the formation of wrinkles, helped retain skin elasticity, and reduced the appearance of dark spots. Two years later, a study mixed turmeric extract into a skin cream, and then applied it to the skin for six weeks. Results showed that the cream protected against the sun, and also improved the skin’s ability to naturally moisturize itself. The researchers suggested that the extract could be incorporated into sunscreen formulas.
2) Helps reduce acne
Turmeric appears to have natural oil-controlling properties. In 2013, researchers evaluated cream with turmeric extract on acne sufferers. They first evaluated the amount of oil, or sebum, on the skin of the volunteers. They then gave some the cream with the turmeric, and others a cream without turmeric.
Results showed that those using the regular cream actually experienced an increase in skin sebum (more oil production) starting the sixth week of the study. Those using the turmeric cream, on the other hand, experienced a reduction in skin oil starting in the fourth week of use, and that reduction reached 25 percent by the end of the study period (10 weeks).
3) Reduces risk of skin cancer
Here’s another reason manufacturers would be wise to add turmeric to sunscreens — it has anti-cancer activity. We have many studies showing that this natural ingredient helps slow the growth of cancer cells, and even shrinks tumors. An earlier 2005 study found similar results, with turmeric killing and stopping the growth of melanoma skin cancer cells. (Melanoma is the most deadly form of skin cancer.)
Our company recently performed a trial testing our turmeric cream on a skin neoplastic formation, located on a man’s forearm. The measurements of the targeted spot were taken on a weekly basis during two consecutive weeks with the following results observed:

4) Helps heal wounds
Turmeric has a long history of being a wound-healer. Whether one was to suffer a bruise, insect bite, infected wound, or even mouth inflammation, a turmeric salve or paste was the answer. Modern research has confirmed this is a good idea. In 2012, researchers tried turmeric patches on wounds and found that not only did it improve healing time, but it also helped the skin repair itself, encouraging the production of collagen and promoting tissue regeneration.
5) Helps treat psoriasis
Turmeric has a natural anti-inflammatory action, which we now know can help treat the symptoms of psoriasis. Patients with psoriasis have elevated “PhK,” a particular type of protein associated with the disease. In 2000, researchers found that turmeric helped inhibit the activity of PhK — with a corresponding decrease in the severity of psoriasis symptoms.
6) Delays the appearance of aging
Turmeric contains potent antioxidants known to protect cells against free radical destruction. In a 2014 study, for example, researchers reported that curcumin protected cells from oxidant damage linked with Alzheimer’s disease — and that it did so in a way linked to preserving long life.
It makes sense that topical application of turmeric may also help delay the appearance of aging on the skin.
7) Fades hyper pigmentation
Tired of age spots and melasma? Turmeric may help. The spice seems to be able to affect melanin, which is the substance in skin responsible for pigmentation. If you have melasma, you have too much melanin on your cheeks, chin, and forehead. Age spots are also created by too much melanin in one place. Turmeric is capable to block the activation of proteins that increase and regulate melanin production.
Think twice about what you put on your skin: As the largest organ in your body, your skin is essentially a sponge. Your skin can be affected by your internal health, like the food you eat, and it can also be affected by the cosmetics you use each day. The makeup and creams you apply every morning has a direct entry point into your body through the delicate barrier that is your skin, with the potential to absorb up to 10,500 unique chemical ingredients found in beauty products. When you think of it this way, it becomes clear that using toxin-free creams is more important than ever. A 100 percent natural cream from Toulison Nutraceuticals Inc. is a safe alternative to the chemical-laden cosmetics found at the local drugstore. The Toulison Nutraceuticals Inc. line is made with nourishing and protective natural ingredients – and it’s completely free from harsh artificial chemicals and preservatives.
