Gotta love Turmeric. First off, it goes back about 4,000 YEARS for medicinal use. That is some serious street cred! The powder itself comes from the roots of the turmeric plant, known as curcuma domestica. There is no doubt that it is a colossal inflammation fighter, wherever used in the body. For centuries it has healed colds, disinfected wounds, battled acne, as well as provided RADIANCE to skin.
According to Dr. Purvisha Patel, MD, board-certified dermatologist, “Curcumin is a potent anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anti-neoplastic, and antioxidant, as it combats free radicals and free radical damage (that is what causes aging skin). It has been used for centuries in Eastern medicine to combat certain skin conditions such as psoriasis, vitiligo, and acne.”
In the list of spices used for holistic reasons, Turmeric is pretty much a total champion.
At Mantra Mask, we LOVE this superhero. It’s in our fan-favorite CBD Pore Refining Mask as well as our new CBD Collagen Spray.
So what, exactly is it doing?
First off – it is a proven acne fighter and pore cleaner-outer. It calms the areas that are already inflamed and bothered with its natural antiseptic qualities. Turmeric also keeps the skin cells from clumping together and clogging the pores, decreasing bacteria and inflammation.
Buh bye, Acne!
But there’s more:
Turmeric is also known to inhibit the production of melanin. That’s what gives you the dark sunspots on your face. It has been shown that Turmeric has been very effective in treating hyperpigmentation if used over a long period of time. So don’t hesitate to spray away with our CBD Collagen Spray. It’s a little turmeric blast every time you use it.
If dull skin is your complaint, this magic spice also helps with your skin’s overall RADIANCE. Its natural anti-inflammatory properties help calm down irritated skin, leaving it smooth and even-toned, with the GLOW we are all looking for. Increasing the microcirculation in your skin allows the blood flow in the teeny tiny vessels, perking up tired skin to look fresh, healthy, and vibrant.
Turmeric is basically the BOMB when it comes to skincare. Hard not to believe in something that has been around for over 4,000 years with rave reviews. It’s one of the best secret weapons in our all-natural arsenal!
