What’s the most liberating thing about working from home (wfh) for you? For me, it’s about trimming my beauty routine to the bare basics. Sayonara to hair dyes that damage my hair, farewell make-up, my pores can finally breathe again, and adieu to the tedious constant reapplication of lipstick. My lazybones whispered to me to use this period to allow my skin a chance to detox.
As my skincare supplies dwindle, I have also started relooking my usual buys and changing up my beauty kit with organic products that use natural ingredients, and of course, no animal testing. I may be late to the game, but hello clean beauty movement. Simply put, the clean beauty movement is making us rethink what we put on our skin every day. Which products can ensure efficacy while avoiding the use of harmful ingredients like parabens, sulfates, silicones, phthalates and synthetic fragrances?
My hunt for all-natural skincare brought me to the amazing ingredient that is commonly found in Asian kitchens. Did you know that turmeric in skincare is becoming a thing? Native to South and Southeast Asia, turmeric as a healthy cooking ingredient is not new to us. Its benefits extend to the skin as well. The active compound curcumin in turmeric is what gives it its antioxidant, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and even antiseptic properties. This means, there’s hope yet for acne, skin redness, discolouration and many more skin woes.
Wish to cull turmeric’s benefits, without that orange-yellow stain? Look to these products, from cleansers, facial mists, serums, face oil, moisturizers to masks, that are paraben-free, GMO certified and cruelty-free. Give this highly touted ingredient a try and let us know in the comments below if they work for you.
And now, let me share the love here.
