The Anti-aging Face Mask with a Secret Ingredient Already in Your Kitchen!

Aging is inevitable, but how we age is entirely up to us! As Jules Renard so nicely put it; “It`s not how old you are, it`s how you are old.” So many of us are guilty of splashing the cash on those “miracle” anti-aging creams, but what they don’t realize is that cheaper and scientifically proven solutions are sitting right under our noses. Turmeric is an absolute wonder-spice possessing biological properties that not only help fight the signs of aging, but also with various health conditions including cardiovascular and neurological issues to name a few.

The spice itself belongs to the ginger family and is diversely used throughout Asian cooking. Curcumin, the vibrant yellow pigment in turmeric, serves as a strong antioxidant, is anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, anti some forms of cancer and may even play a role in preventing telomere shortening (FYI anti-aging). We all know that aging is followed by wrinkles, skin sagging, hyper pigmentation and age spots as the skin gradually loses collagen and fat tissue. But the importance of eating a diet that is especially rich in anti-oxidants is often overlooked.

Consuming Turmeric has numerous health benefits, though few people realize that applying it directly to the face is one of the most beautifying skin methods there is. The Curcuminoids help to prevent and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and its antioxidant properties work to give the skin a healthy glow. It’s not surprising that turmeric has been used in South East Asian facial masks for centuries! Indian women use the spice as a natural cleanser instead of soap. Turmeric facemasks are also an integral part of an Indian Bride’s wedding preparations, beautifying their skin to perfection for their big day.

Turmeric Masks not only help soften the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines but also works wonders for acne and eczema sufferers, as well as reducing redness and inflammation for a more youthful appearance. Rosacea sufferers can also find relief with the Turmeric’s miracle properties as it not only reduces the redness but also helps to treat the disease itself.

Now you know a little more about the wonders that Turmeric can do for your health and beauty, why not try adding some to your meals? Alternatively (or additionally), you can try out this simple, easy to make face-mask to brighten the skin.
