5 ways Turmeric can benefit your skin and body
---If you frequent the kitchen, you’re probably all too familiar with the Southwest Indian native spice, Turmeric. Considered a member of the ginger family, Turmeric is the key ingredient used to give curry its signature taste and orange-yellow tint.
What most people don’t know, however, is that turmeric is a spice that is valued in and outside of the kitchen in many areas of the world. At OilBlends, we’re advocates for the use of turmeric on the skin and body. Whether you have acne-prone skin or dark circles under your eyes, there’s a turmeric solution for you. Don’t believe us? Here are 5 ways turmeric will benefit your skin and body.
Fight off acne and lighten acne scars
Turmeric has been known to fight off acne. In fact, Rachel Nazarian, MD, swears by it. As a natural antiseptic, the plant keeps bacteria from spreading. Correspondingly, its anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and swelling. For the icing on the cake, if you suffer from hyperpigmentation, turmeric also has the ability to help lighten dark marks.
“To treat a blemish, I mix a teaspoon of turmeric with a dab each of hydrocortisone and Neosporin and put the mixture in the fridge for about an hour,” Nazarian said to Oprah Magazine. “After it's cold, I apply a small amount to a pimple with a dab of Vaseline on top to enhance penetration.”
Bye-bye, dark circles
Getting rid of bags can seem impossible, but with turmeric, the impossible seems a bit more achievable. According to Courtney Chiusano, founder of Courtney Chiusano Skincare in Los Angeles, California, turmeric stimulates circulation, helping to reduce puffiness and under-eye darkness.
Penetrates stretch marks
Believe it or not, but the antioxidant power contained in turmeric has the power to penetrate those pesky stretch marks! According to Turmeric for Health, when a turmeric solution penetrates the skin, the plant targets skin membrane cells, which in turn, helps treat stretch marks. BUTTERS THAT HEAL.

Natural Alternatives to Harsh Chemicals Ingredients, Bleaching Creams, and skin whitening ProductsHarmful effects of Fade CreamsSkin lightening, bleaching, and whitening is nothing new—for various reasons, men and women of colour have been doing it for years. However, in the digital age, the skin lightening industry is booming more than ever. With celebrity endorsements and social media advertising running rampant, it’s essential to be educated on products before use. Studies have shown that black men and women are most vulnerable to the harmful effects of skin lightening, bleaching, and whitening products—but why?What’s in them?Commonly, skin lightening, bleaching, and whitening products contain ingredients such as hydroquinone, tretinoin, mercury, and steroids. Hydroquinone, in particular, is commonly known to be the most effective skin lightening agent—working to stop the production of melanin. However, many researchers consider hydroquinone a highly toxic chemical, especially with long-term use. Some studies have even revealed that hydroquinone has been known to cause cancer in laboratory animals.
In 2001, the European Union banned hydroquinone from its cosmetics. However, Canada and the United States have failed to do the same. Rather, hydroquinone is regulated under the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999––restricting hydroquinone-containing health products to be sold only with doctor prescription.What long-term effects are people of colour more at risk of developing?Exogenous ochronosis
Identified by it’s blue–greyish hyperpigmentation and bumps, exogenous ochronosis is most commonly known to occur to individuals of colour who use topical skin lightening products.
“The most severe and widely recognized side-effect of chronic hydroquinone [use] is called exogenous ochronosis, which is a paradoxical darkening of the skin,” said Dr. Neelam Vashi, a dermatologist at Boston University Medical Center.Skin CancerBlack men and women who use skin lightening products increase their risk of developing skin cancer. Though darker skin tones are less likely to suffer from sun-induced skin cancer, the alteration of melanin production resulting from skin bleaching puts an individual exposed to strong UV radiation at greater risk than before.DiabetesBlack men and women already have a high risk of developing diabetes, but due to topical steroids contained in skin bleaching products, that risk is increased exponentially.
“With high-potency topical steroids used for a long time, you can get suppression of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system. And with that suppression you can get these endocrine problems like Cushing’s disease and diabetes,” explained Dr. Vashi.
With the long-term risk of exogenous ochronosis, skin cancer, and diabetes, why fuel the skin lightening industry any further? Skip the harmful effects of chemicals and go natural! OilBlends offers a variety of toxin-free products capable of diminishing dark spots, blemishes, acne, age spots, and skin discoloration.

Benefits of vitamin E on the skinConsidered both a nutrient and antioxidant, vitamin E is a fat-soluble compound predominantly found in a selection of plant oils and the leaves of green vegetables. The human body also produces vitamin E through sebum, an oil released through the skin’s pores. However, it is possible for a human to lack the balance of vitamin E needed to generate strong and healthy skin. It is for this reason that dermatologists have been recommending the nutrient to their patients for over 50 years. Vitamin E is known to combat free radicals, a term that refers to the molecules that are located everywhere around us—including inside of our bodies. Sunlight and forms of pollution, such as cigarette smoke and dust, are external factors that create new free radicals. When new free radicals are created, they cause harm to human skin, but as an antioxidant, vitamin E combats bacteria and corrects the skin’s balance.
Below are the four of the major benefits vitamin E can have on your skin.Protects from sun damageAs stated above, the sun’s rays are one factor that generates free radicals. One of vitamin E’s main functions is to guard the skin from UV rays. A study conducted by the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology confirmed this, finding that when used topically, vitamin E can act as a protectant from skin damage due to sun exposure. The study also revealed that the use of vitamin E topically can aid the sunburn healing process.Treats dry skin and anti-agingRich and thick in property as an oil, vitamin E has the ability to treat and prevent chapped skin. In turn, vitamin E also helps to improve fine lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a healthy glow. The anti-aging benefits of vitamin E are also generated by the nutrient’s ability to unclog pores, plump the skin, and repair it from damage.Reduces inflammationVitamin E also has anti-inflammatory properties that help to combat skin inflammation. One study found that people living with atopic dermatitis (eczema), a condition that causes red, itchy, and irritated skin, obtained relief from using vitamin E.
Treats scarring, dark spots, and stretch marksVitamin E can also be useful from reducing scarring and stretch marks. A clinical study published by the Journal of Plastic, Reconstructive & Aesthetic Surgery proved that the topical application of vitamin E applied to a cut, such as a surgical incision area, improved tremendously faster than with the use of another scarring treatment.
"Vitamin E is more effective as a skin conditioner and protectant than a wound-healing agent," said Harold Lancer, a dermatologist in Beverly Hills to Allure. "It doesn't contain any antimicrobials or antibacterials, which are essential for ensuring a wound is healthy and can heal properly."
