Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/20/2015 -- Today, there is a myriad of skincare products available to help fight acne and other skin conditions. There are creams and medications that are formulated for the skin problem and there are also natural alternatives that are believed to be helpful for overall skin health. Turmeric is one of the natural remedies used for acne.
Turmeric recipes for acne have finally been revealed. Acne is one of the most difficult skin problems that people deal with, and almost always, it significantly affects the personal and social life of sufferers. People measure beauty based on a variety of criteria, and that includes having a healthy, blemish-free skin.
"Fighting acne has become inexpensive and easy nowadays. In addition to prescription medications and over-the-counter products, there are also natural alternatives such as turmeric," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
Turmeric is an ancient spice that has been used for thousands of years as a kitchen ingredient and natural medicine. It is very popular in traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine. Today, it is available in several forms and is popularly taken through supplementation. The use of turmeric is associated with a myriad of health benefits.
The therapeutic effects of turmeric are believed to be coming from its phytochemical called curcumin. Curcumin contains antibacterial, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties are both believed to be effective at fighting acne. Turmeric is believed to help fight the bacteria that cause inflammation and acne. It helps remove the skin's excessive oil, which is a factor that influences the development of acne.
Turmeric can be made into a paste before the skin application. The ingredients needed are four tablespoons of turmeric powder, 1 tablespoon milk, and 4 tablespoons of raw honey. Combine all of these ingredients and mix well until it becomes a smooth paste. Turmeric powder can also be mixed with olive oil.
According to skin experts, sufferers can soften their skin first by taking a long hot shower. They should avoid products that can dry their skin out such as glycerin and antibacterial products. The pus in inflamed acne lesions should also be brought to the surface, and this can be done by applying a hot wash cloth on the areas affected. The turmeric paste should then be applied and be accompanied with a massage.
Turmeric is widely available nowadays and used for a range of medical conditions. People use curcumin supplements to achieve arthritis pain relief and increase their immunity against diseases. The most popular curcumin supplements are those that contain a bioavailability enhancing ingredient called BioPerine (http://www.amazon.com/Turmeric-Curcumin-Complex-BioPerine-Bio-availability/dp/B00JA4TLTI/).
