Also known as Curcuma longa, turmeric is a rhizomatous plant of the ginger family. It’s so hot right now and, yes, will stain your white chucks. Turmeric is the magic marker of antioxidant-rich plants; its hero ingredient is a volatile yellow oil called curcumin. Curcumin can help reduce pigmentation, fight acne, and even out skin tone. Turmeric’s polyphenols have been shown to possess anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, wound-healing, and antimicrobial action, perfect for reducing skin blemishes and fading any scarring they may leave behind.
Turmeric and its powerful properties have visible skin clearing results when applied topically to troubled skin. Bioavailability is, however, greatly reduced when ingested due to rapid metabolism and rapid systemic elimination of curcumin in the GI tract.
