Can a Spice Improve My Skin? Everything You Need to Know About Turmeric & Skincare

Can a Spice Improve My Skin? Simple answer: yes!

Turmeric is the bright yellow-orange spice that you probably know from curry powder. 

It’s made from the powdered root of a variety of ginger-plant and its warm, earthy aroma and brilliant color are instantly recognizable to fans of many types of South Asian cuisine, especially dishes from India and Thailand.

In addition to its use as a spice and a pigment, turmeric has been used for centuries as medicine.

Ayurveda, the classical healing tradition of India, recommends turmeric for a broad array of health issues ranging from arthritis, indigestion and even smallpox in texts dated 500 B.C.E.

In fact, this spice is so well-loved in India that it’s a big part of traditional Hindu wedding ceremonies!

Today, current scientific findings point to turmeric as an effective topical treatment for common skin issues.


How can turmeric help my skin?

Like all members of the ginger family, turmeric is energizing.

Its antiseptic, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory chemical properties help cells fight infection, repair tissue damage, and resist attack from free radicals, keeping skin firmer, brighter and smoother.

That’s why it’s a featured active ingredient in some of Robin’s upcoming products.

Robin's soon-to-be-released lotion contains a specific kind of antioxidant known as a curcuminoid.

The effect: faster cell turnover, so your complexion becomes more clear, soft and resilient. Faster cell turnover softens the depth of fine lines and wrinkles.

The antioxidant action of the curcumin also signals to cells to produce more collagen, helping to create support and structure for the skin, and replenishing the bounce and firmness that naturally diminish with age.

What are some of the skin-specific benefits of turmeric?

Here are 5 ways that turmeric can help your skin look firmer and more vibrant:

1. Anti-Aging: Improves skin elasticity, so those fine lines and wrinkles appear less deep and less defined.

2. Protection from sun damage: Although there is no substitute for daily sunscreen, studies have shown that when turmeric extract is applied to the skin, it provides some protection from UV.

3. Reduces risk of skin cancer: Studies show that turmeric helps slow the growth of cancer cells and may even reduce the size of tumors. This includes skin cancers including melanoma. 

4. Controls oil and prevents blemishes: No wonder turmeric paste is ceremonially dabbed on the faces of Indian brides and grooms as part of their wedding day preparations!

In addition to its ability to curb excess sebum production, turmeric is also a mild botanical antiseptic, so it prevents excess bacteria from triggering acne outbreaks, and helps blemishes clear and heal faster.

5. Brightens skin and fades dark spots: Turmeric tames excess pigment production in the skin, for an even, glowing complexion.


Like so many of the naturally derived ingredients in Robin’s products, turmeric benefits your health both when taken internally (yes, that gorgeous, fragrant plate of Murg Kari counts!) and applied externally.
