Turmeric And Your Skin

One of today's rising stars in the clean beauty movement is also an ingredient found in your favorite curry, Turmeric. A cousin to ginger, turmeric enhances more than just an outstanding Indian dish.

This sunset-yellow spice has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, anticarcinogenic,  and antioxidant properties that can help:

      1. Prevent breakouts- it can also lessen active ones due to antimicrobial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Similar to salicylic acid, turmeric can help to remove clogs and reduce comedones, resulting in a clear complexion.
      2. Fight eczema and psoriasis - studies show turmeric to be beneficial in treating psoriasis.
      3. Reduce acne scarring - calms skin and is known for reducing scarring.
      4. Helps with Hyperpigmentation - studies have shown turmeric to reduce dark spots on the skin – aka hyperpigmentation.
      5. Reduce signs of aging - This golden root helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles, keeps skin supple and improves skin’s elasticity due to antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Health Benefits of Curcumin 

The active ingredient in Turmeric is Curcumin. It's believed curcumin is responsible for much of turmeric's healing capabilities. 

Scientists now believe that chronic, low-level inflammation plays a major role in almost every chronic, Western disease. This includes heart disease, cancer, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s and various degenerative conditions.

Turmeric contains bioactive compounds with powerful medicinal properties and has been used in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine as a treatment for inflammatory conditions for centuries. 

Turmeric has shown promise in treating depression

Anti-inflammatory, antioxidants, and neuroprotective compounds found in Turmeric are thought to counteract the degenerative processes frequently associated with MDD (Major depressive disorder).

A dozen randomized controlled clinical trials have been conducted suggesting that curcumin may be effective as a treatment (or adjunct treatment) of MDD.

Super Star Skin Care Ingredient

When it comes to your skin, Turmeric is indeed a super star. The active ingredient, curcumin is a natural antioxidant with antibacterial properties. It can decrease UV damage and help to neutralize free-radical damage that could lead to premature aging. 

When applied to the skin around your eyes, turmeric brightens the under eye area and is known to reduce puffiness.

With its brightening, perfect-aging and acne-reducing abilities, turmeric is the golden child (pun intended) of the beauty world, and is fast becoming a favorite natural ingredient in clean beauty brands.

See what people are saying!

My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
