This just in. The Healing Turmeric Mask is here! We created this mask because the benefits of turmeric for the skin are unlike any other ingredient in nature. In fact, this super spice has been used in India for thousands of years as a medicinal herb. Turmeric contains bioactive compounds with powerful medicinal properties called curcuminoids, with the most important being curcumin. As the main active ingredient in turmeric, curcumin has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, which acts to calm and heal any skin ailment.
Here are some of our favorite benefits of turmeric:
As a powerful antioxidant, turmeric fights off free radicals and oxidation, preventing fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
Reduces Acne Scars
Turmeric is known to increase blood circulation to the skin, which revs up collagen product and decreases the appearance of acne scars.
Heals Wounds, Rosacea, and Psoriasis
The curcumin found in turmeric helps to heal skin flare-ups by decreasing inflammation and oxidation. It also lowers your body's response to cutaneous wounds, thus the skin heals much more quickly.
Clears and Prevents Blemishes
A naturally disinfectant bactericide, turmeric gets to the root of pimples and spots to clear and heal the infected skin.
As if these benefits weren't enough, we added several other super hero ingredients to our Healing Turmeric Mask.
Used in folk medicine as a natural remedy for acne, neem is an aspirin-like compound that rids the skin of bacteria and reduces redness and inflammation. It's also widely known to increase circulation and treat acne scars.
A natural exfoliant, sulfur is known for its gentle yet effective removal of dead skin cells and is often used to treat acne, psoriasis, eczema, and dandruff. Sulfur is also needed by the body to produce collagen, the substance that keeps skin elastic and young.
Extremely anti-inflammatory, Azelaic Acid is used to treat every skin woe, from acne to rosacea. It exfoliates dead skin cells away, while calming redness and irritation.
Found in every cell of your body, zinc is needed by over 100 different enzymes to function. Skin cells are particularly dependent on zinc's powerful properties, because when you cut yourself, zinc goes to work first. Thus, this incredibly important mineral is responsible for new cell production and the function of cell membranes.
To use the Healing Turmeric Mask, simply apply a thin layer to clean skin, leave on for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly. Slight redness or tingling due to increased circulation is possible and normal. Bonus tip: Apply over our Advanced Clarifying Night Treatment to boost results.
