5 Anti-Inflammatory Recipes For Glowing Skin (With Turmeric)


Chronic inflammation is associated with skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Simply adding more anti-inflammatory foods to the diet is a simple yet powerful way to reduce inflammation and support clearer skin.

One of my favorite anti-inflammatory foods is turmeric, as it’s easy to sneak into many dishes and is quite potent when it comes to reducing chronic inflammation. So, in this video and post, we’ll focus specifically on anti-inflammatory turmeric recipes for skin.

Benefits Of Turmeric For Skin 

  • Reduces inflammation: Turmeric contains curcumin, a powerful compound known to reduce inflammation. (1) This helps reduce and prevent acne and other inflammatory skin conditions. (2)
  • Improves chronic inflammatory skin conditions: Studies show that turmeric/curcumin, both oral and topical, may improve skin conditions such as acne, alopecia, atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, and more. (3)
  • Rich in antioxidants: Turmeric is rich in antioxidants that neutralize free radicals that contribute to acne, aging, and chronic disease. (4, 5, 6, 7)
  • Regulates insulin: A study shows curcumin helps improve insulin sensitivity. (8) This helps keep blood sugar stable, and stable blood sugar is a key to clear skin. (9)
