Turmeric in cosmetics
Curcuma known as turmeric too, is one of the best herbs and spices, which have been popular since antiquity for their beneficial properties for the skin. Its cultivation, of course, and its use in antiquity, was located in the warm countries of the East, with India first, where people gave turmeric, divine qualities.
The main use of turmeric in cosmetics is to treat inflammations associated with dermatoses, eczema and acne. Of course, the cosmetic uses are not limited there, as turmeric creates a protective film on the skin preventing premature skin aging and dehydration.
Adding turmeric to bubble baths and shampoos improves the look and texture of the skin while it is thought to reduce hair growth in the body. The natural shine it offers to the skin, makes the skin look more beautiful and healthy, while reducing wrinkles and tightening the contours of the face and body, significantly reducing skin’s loosening. Turmeric facial washes treat acne with very good results, reducing the risk of scars.
Beneficial for the hair too, turmeric is ideal for treating dandruff while it has been used as a natural hair dye. It is believed that turmeric helps the hair grow faster due to the enhancement of microcirculation in the skin and the nutrition it offers.
The natural color that the root of turmeric gives to cosmetics is a lovely yellow-orange, depending on how much we add. External use has no side effects, if done in moderation and dosages are not exceeded.
