I am not exaggerating when I say that turmeric is one of my favorite ingredients in the entire world. It’s in my food, on my skin and I even have it in capsule form for when my health needs a boost. So naturally, when I decided to make a detox mask, turmeric was the first thing that came to mind.
A little background: In the East, turmeric has long been used for medicinal purposes. It has been used in Indian ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for years for the treatment of inflammatory and digestive disorders. The western medical community has been doing research into turmeric’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, and its potential in the treatment of cancer and other diseases.
