How to Incorporate Turmeric Into Your Beauty Routine

For thousands of years, turmeric has been a staple in Asian and Middle Eastern cultures, both in and out of the kitchen. Recently, it’s made its way onto superfood lists in mainstream western cuisine, making appearances in lattes and smoothies, thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. Now the spice is popping up in our vanities, too.

For instance, Kaia Naturals Turmeric Detox Hot Bath uses turmeric to soothe sore muscles and encourage circulation, aiding in the body’s cleansing of impurities and toxins. And newly reformulated Clarins Double Serum uses it to strengthen skin cells’ ability to listen and react to their surrounding environment, including when to hydrate, when to regenerate, and when to perform other vital functions that maintain skin health.

Below are our favourite ways to incorporate turmeric into your beauty regimen.
