Why Turmeric May Be the Next Big Trend in Skincare Products

The Indian spice is no longer just for cooking.

— -- Turmeric may be the next big thing to hit the beauty scene -- making its way from your pantry into topical skincare products, and onto your vanity shelf.

In addition to quick fixes, Wolfer said infusing turmeric in your beauty regimen may improve your skin in the long run.

"Over time, anything with anti-inflammatory benefits will help to cumulatively protect you from age damage," she said. "And anything that helps control sebum will help to fight acne cumulatively as well."

"It gives the skin a really nice glow," Ahn said. "We also use it on the body. It's great for cellulite and tightening, so if you use it as a wrap it helps stimulate skin and detoxes."

Ahn said the turmeric mask boasts an exfoliating agent, removing dead skin cells and boosting skin-smoothing results.
