IT'S A SPICE...AND...?
You might just have heard of this spice that is native to southwest India as its often used in Indian and Pakistani cuisine, but you may not know that much about ALL of the wonderful benefits this plant from the ginger family brings to the table! The plant is harvested for its root or rhizomes every season, and then boiled for up to about 45 minutes; these boiled roots are then dried in super hot ovens, followed by a thorough grinding into an orange-yellowish powder.
This powder is commonly used as a spice in food preparation, for dyeing clothing and other items, and even in condiments such as mustard. India is the largest producer of Turmeric, with names of the spice varying based on the region of the country and language of the area. It's been used in Asia for thousands of years- also for dye, in addition to its medicinal properties. Now let's get to the good part: what does it do for your skin?! That's where it's benefits are quite numerous...and wonderful :)
WHAT TURMERIC CAN DO FOR YOUR SKIN:
I absolutely LOVE that something as simple, pure, and organic as a spice can be just what your skin needs! For starters, Turmeric can help you reduce the signs of aging, essentially turning back the hands of time with this powerful exfoliating agent, but the awesomeness doesn't stop there! It can reduce wrinkles as well and is fantastic in reducing pores too.
When it comes to fighting acne, Turmeric comes to the rescue by helping in reducing the excess oil produced by the skin and actually controlling that oil secretion. If you're looking for healthy and glowing skin, look no further than Turmeric- it's also one of the top organic alternatives to achieving that perfect glow to your skin and can even reduce skin pigmentation too!
what's a good product that contains turmeric?!
yalmeh glorifying vitamin c toner $21.95*
I liked this product right off the bat- it's just what I was looking for in a daily Toner, without being over-drying or annoying! More times often than not, I've run into Toner's that either are over-drying or they just don't quite seem to do the job. If they are okay in how they work, then they are pumped full of bad-for-you ingredients that I don't really care to put on my skin :/ That's when I started looking for better product alternatives that contained quality organic beauty products that aren't over-priced either.
Yalmeh achieves this feat quite easily for me with a price point of under $22 and a wonderfully made product that is composed of 95% organic & 100% natural ingredients! I'm quite particular to the scent of the Toner too- it's definitely unique and different in a way, but the combination of the Turmeric, Aloe, Dandelion, and Grapefruit makes for a good, light smell. The product dries very quickly and in under about 30 seconds and that makes for little down time before application of your other skincare products such as a serum or moisturizer. You'll really notice the difference in the smoothness and moisturization of your skin after the first usage of this toner from Yalmeh and it was definitely something that stuck in my mind right away!
There's a generous amount at 4.057 fl. ounces, so you will get what you pay for and still have the bottle longer than a few days :) The packaging is a nice added touch with a bright green body and chrome screw-on lid that actually doesn't spill! Yalmeh designed the lid well so as to ensure the cap screws down into the small opening atop the lid, which in turn prevents spillage and leakage! I was very impressed with how well they thought of the design and that my product arrived without a drop spilled.
As added bonuses, the toner is chalked full of other awesome organic and natural ingredients like Vitamin's C & E, Rosemary Seed Extract, and Carrot Oil! If you have sensitive skin, this is one product you will want to give a try! I have beyond skin that's sensitive and I was able to use this product with no issues :) Lastly, I'd recommend this product to anyone that's looking for a great daily toner, wants to switch to a more organic skincare routine, or is looking for that perfect gift for the beauty fanatic in your life- this toner Glorifying Vitamin C Toner from Yalmeh is the way to go!!!
