The Turmeric Acne Treatment All Starts with a Balanced Diet

Posted Mar 29 2011 5:20pm

By now, you may have figured out that clear skin all starts with a healthy diet . But did you realize that adding certain spices, like turmeric, to the foods that you eat has the potential to clear and improve the quality of your skin?

A healthy acne diet focuses on fresh vegetables, lean proteins, and especially omega-3 fatty acids to restore and strengthen skin that has been damaged by toxic chemicals and additives in processed foods.

As you begin to integrate fresh and natural foods into your diet, one spice that should be at the top of your list is turmeric. Turmeric comes from the root of a plant in the ginger family, and it is normally ground into a powder and used in Indian cuisine. [1]

Turmeric is a vital ingredient in curry powder, and it often has a slight taste of orange and ginger with a subtle bitter undertone. When cooking healthy and fresh foods to balance your diet, turmeric can be used to add flavor to soups, side dishes, vegetables, and lean proteins like fish. [1]

While turmeric has a pleasant and authentic flavor, it is important to discover the benefits that a turmeric acne treatment can provide when you include the spice in your diet.

Turmeric is a natural spice often used in ayurvedic healing remedies to naturally purify the blood and relieve a number of skin conditions. [2]

Turmeric treats:

  • The skin
  • The heart
  • The liver
  • The lungs

Since turmeric supports the health of the liver, it will aid in natural detoxification in the body to significantly reduce your risk of acne outbreaks. On top of that, turmeric also has wonderful anti-inflammatory properties to alleviate chronic inflammation in the body that results in severe acne in the skin.

Here is what several acne sufferers from the acne.org forums had to say about the turmeric acne remedy:

Here a cure for all acne people suffer from red mark,scar,Hyperpigmentation.
Turmeric powder or the root from it. It only cost u a few dollar to buy at a asian market With a few dollar will last u a month and help u fade all kind acne,scar,red mark,Hyperpigmentation on your face in a month u will see life agian, and u don’t have to waste thousand dollar or go to the pain of that nasty peel,skin bleaching or use harsh chemical that don’t work.

I’ve been trying this for about 4 days now i can definitely tell you it works! Drinking the turmeric prevents further acne forming and applying it to the face helps fight current acne, and reduces scar formation & pigmentation.

 

The most important point to keep in mind is that using a spice like turmeric by itself will not be able to cure your acne. BUT when you use a turmeric acne treatment in addition to a balanced diet, you will be able to naturally purge your body of toxins, strengthen your immune system, and clear your skin from the inside out.

As an added bonus, you can also use a topical turmeric acne remedy at home to relieve acne in your complexion.

To do so, make a paste of turmeric powder and water to apply to your skin, and rinse with warm water after 5 minutes. This natural home remedy will alleviate surface inflammation, treat hyperpigmentation caused by acne scarring, and strengthen your skin to resist acne outbreaks!
