TURMERIC SPICES UP BEAUTY PRODUCTS

12-07-13 | Posted by


Turmeric, a spice known for its bright yellow color as well as it’s warm, peppery taste, is crossing boundaries and cropping up in beauty products. Used extensively in Asian home-made skincare recipes, the anti-inflammatory root is also an ideal antiseptic, and helps heal and prevent blemishes while improving radiance of the skin. Check out these three new products that feature the versatile root:

An Indonesian skincare brand founded by quartet Metta Murdaya, Jill Sung, Tami Chuang, and Yoshiko Roth, Juara uses turmeric in its silky Clove Flower & Turmeric Anti-Aging Serum. Roth explains that the spice is bit of a royal affair: “A princess would receive an elaborate body treatment before her wedding with turmeric and herbs to help look glowing and beautiful,” she says.  Ingredients, including antioxidants clove flower, and goji berry coexist with palm peptide in this anti-aging serum to enhance luminosity and also brighten. Editor’s tip: use before applying makeup as a primer.

Created by holistic teacher and writer Dr. Andrew Weil, this lip balm uses the Oriental spice with a blend of cocoa butter and other seed oils that help moisturize and condition. It is recommended for severely dry and rough lips, so it’s an ideal choice to stock up on during the colder months.
