Turmeric is a mustard-yellow spice commonly used to flavor Indian cuisine, but it's also used as herbal medicine. Scientists say its active ingredient, curcumin, may offer a range of benefits, some of which pertain to your skin. However, researchers only have animal and test-tube studies to go on. It's necessary to duplicate the results in well-designed human trials to know whether turmeric has skin benefits. The amounts used in studies are higher than typical dietary consumption and are similar to supplemental doses.
The ingredient protects skin by reducing inflammation and neutralizing free radicals -- unstable atoms that can cause cellular damage. Curcumin also regulates proteins involved in the healing process of wounds and influences enzymes involved in skin regeneration, according to the review. These properties may benefit a range of skin problems, as well as wound healing.
