Turmeric is perfect for sensitive skin as people who are suffering from rosacea or eczema will benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties, soothing flare-ups. Acne prone skin also greatly benefit from applying turmeric on the skin, as it contains curcumin, which works to fight the bacteria that play a critical role in acne formation.
Turmeric also does good to aging skin, as it contains antioxidant, fighting off free radicals such as the harmful aging effects of sun damage and harsh UV rays, delaying the formation of wrinkles and dark spots. Conventional methods of applying turmeric on your skin are with DIY masks or just adding it into your diet.
