For hundreds of years, people around the world have linked turmeric to healing properties and cosmetic benefits. Turmeric contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory components. These characteristics may provide glow and luster to the skin. Turmeric may also revive your skin by bringing out its natural glow.
Turmeric is rich in an antioxidant called curcumin. When cumin is included in a facial mask or scrub, the skin benefits from the vitamins and minerals of the spice. Vitamin C serums have become popular in the skincare world, but cumin has a leg up on this beauty trend. Cumin is also high in inflammation-fighting antioxidants to repair skin damage and keep skin looking young. Cumin is also naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory to soothe skin and keep it blemish free. Cumin also contains the anti-aging property thanks to its high vitamin E content. Vitamin E as a potent antioxidant prevents premature aging and its symptoms. It neutralizes harmful effects of free radicals in your body (come from pollution, stress and unhealthy diets) thus lessen the appearance of skin damages or signs of aging such as age spots, wrinkles, and skin sagging.

The following are some of the benefits of Turmeric on your skin:
1. Has Anti-Inflammatory Properties
Thanks to its anti-inflammatory and antibacterial benefits, turmeric can work wonders on condition-riddled skin. It can also help reduce redness from blemishes and calm skin conditions like eczema and rosacea.
2. Fight off acne
Turmeric is excellent for acne because it is a natural antiseptic and helps to keep bacteria from spreading. It’s especially effective when combined with apple cider vinegar which has astringent properties, meaning it plays the same role as your average toner.
3. Reduces dark circles
It also stimulates circulation, which can help reduce puffiness and under-eye darkness caused by poor circulation.
4. Protect against sun damage & aging
Research presented at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) 68th Annual Meeting shows that a moisturizing cream containing turmeric had the ability to improve the appearance of fine lines and brown spots caused by sun damage. It also helps prevent loss of skin elasticity due to long-term UVB exposure.
