  3. Turmeric inactivates elastase, the enzyme responsible for breaking down elastin.  Elastin gives your skin structure.  If elastase is left to itself, it can stop your body from producing the proteins needed to produce elastin.3 turmeric face masks for glowing skin

There was also another study that showed after using a cream containing both turmeric and niacinamide rather that just a cream with only niacinamide, there was a 15% more reduction in fine lines and wrinkles than the group using the cream with the niacinamide alone.

Another study showed similar results in reducing age spots using turmeric and not just niacinamide.  Even though both studies were supported by the company making the creams, there is a reason to believe using turmeric plus niacinamide works to slow aging of skin and brighten skin.

3 Turmeric Masks that will Lighten, Brighten and make your skin Beautifully Glowing, Clean and Smooth looking

1. Turmeric and Coconut Oil Mask

Mixing  turmeric and coconut oil makes a wonderful mask.  Not only is the turmeric great for your skin but also the coconut oil is a great moisturizer than brightens skin.  This turmeric mask is great for lightening and evening skin tone.

Be careful not to get the turmeric on your clothes.  If your skin stains a little, don’t worry as it is only temporary.  However, if you get the turmeric on your clothes just remove the stain with a little baking soda mixed with water. Mildly scrub the area.

For any stains on skin use the baking soda in the same way.  Baking soda is a bleaching agent and you will also be exfoliating at the same time!

Considerations when using Turmeric

Always consider your skin type and tone when using turmeric on your skin and/or taking it internally.  It seems to stain lighter skin more readily.  I did find one type of turmeric that does not readily stain skin. It’s called [easyazon_link identifier=”B08DDBCRBN” locale=”US” tag=”super50-20″]Kasturi Turmeric[/easyazon_link]. You can use this type of turmeric if you are concerned about staining your skin.

Of course always consider allergic reactions.  It is a good idea to test beforehand.  Rub a small amount of the inside of your forearm and wait a few hours.

Turmeric has the ability to stain skin and clothes so be aware of this.  Use a little milk on a cotton ball or baking soda mixed with water to remove the stain from skin.  To remove the stain of turmeric from clothes, before the stain has a chance to dry, use cool water and soap and just dab the stain.  If you are not able to get soap and water, use lemon juice and let it set for about 15 minutes before rinsing with cool water.  Never use hot water as hot water will set the stain.
