Turmeric is not just a pretty spice that makes food taste better. It’s packed with beauty benefits, so we’ve tried to include it in our routine as much as possible. The high antioxidants levels slow down cell damage, and turmeric is also anti-inflammatory. That means it works against acne, uneven skin tone and even on fine wrinkles. Sure, the pretty color may stain the sink or pillow if you’re not careful but we think it’s worth the extra wash. Read on for ways to add turmeric to your beauty routine:
