Acne is the painful, self-esteem bursting scars on your face that is typically only treated by prescription medications. This is why many people turn to antibiotics or other pharmaceuticals in the hopes to minimize the damage. While some relief may be obtained, it tends to be temporary and leads to the development of drug resistance and many side effects.
So if not antibiotics? What else?
Turmeric is said to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that aid in treating acne. The use of turmeric as a herbal remedy is believed to have begun in Ayurveda, the traditional Hindu medical system from India, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. The active ingredient in turmeric is Curcumin. This ingredient is what causes turmeric to have its bright yellow color, and it’s the ingredient that’s believed to have the medical properties such as:
Antibacterial Properties: The Curcumin in turmeric has been shown to have potent antibacterial properties and anti-fungal properties. It can therefore help to kill the bacteria involved in acne.
Anti-inflammatory Properties: Curcumin lowers the levels of two enzymes in the body that cause inflammation. This may in turn helps to reduce the red marks, associated with acne inflammation, especially in more severe cases e.g. cystic acne. It also helps to reduce the appearance of acne scars.
Anti-oxidant: Curcumin is also a great natural antioxidant. As such, it helps to rid the skin of harmful free radicals due to pollution and poor diets. It helps to maintain healthy skin and thus foster acne healing and prevent future breakouts.
Skin regenerative action: Curcumin has potent chemopreventative properties that can help in skin regeneration and wound healing. It may thus be beneficial to acne scars and lesions.
