Hot Skincare Ingredient to Know: Turmeric (+ a Giveaway!)

Because turmeric is known as a super power antioxidant, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory…

My first exposure to turmeric was probably in shot form (you’ve definitely seen those orange juice shots before), but when I found out how a-mazing the ingredient is for your skin, I knew I had to find the best turmeric-infused products…

So why is turmeric awesome?  Well the deep orange root (from India) is amazing for people who suffer from rosacea (me!) or eczema because of it’s anti-inflammatory properties, but it doesn’t stop there.  It’s also great for anyone who has acne (hello anti-microbial super powers), AND it also helps fight sun damage and aging. WHAT. It’s pretty much a one-stop-shop as far as skincare ingredients and I’m mostly just annoyed I only recently tried it.  Here are my three favorites out of the turmeric products I tried…

and btw, fun fact about turmeric in powder form– it stains your skin! I had orange feet (from the powder falling) and orange finger tips for a few days after I shot these photos 🙂

Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Masque: This mask is my go-to for when my skin is feeling a little dull.  The rinse-off facial instantly brightens skin and I also really love the scent, ha.  Formulated with cranberry extract, an antioxidant packed super-berry rich in resveratrol and turmeric extract, this mask also contains micronized cranberry seeds that gently exfoliate the skin while washing the mask off after use.

Volition Turmeric Brightening Polish: First off, Volition products are bomb so we can just get that out of the way.  This brightening polish because, again, turmeric is amazing at brightening, works for both your face AND body and is truly a great exfoliator; I keep mine in the shower.

Clarins Double Serum: After attending a press lunch for this product last month I was 100% sold.  The two-in-one formula with [20+1] potent plant extracts (including turmeric) is legit a legend when it comes with helping to visibly smooth and firm your skin.  What’s even cooler about this product is that it’s packaged in a new dual chamber bottle so that you can customize your dosage to your skin’s needs.  It’s enriched with anti-aging turmeric (obvs) to effectively target lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone, and boost radiance in as little as seven days.
