Anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti-bacterial and anti-aging.
Had curry lately? Turmeric is a key spice in making curry. And Turmeric is a key ingredient spicing up our September Golden Glow Facial. We combine it with honey, besan flower and yogurt to give you a natural glow.
The Indians value turmeric. This golden spice has been used medicinally and in celebrations for over four thousand years in India. And it is part of Ayurvedic medicine. Turmeric comes from the root-like stem of the Curcuma Longa plant. India has long been the largest producer of the spice.
Modern medicine has now uncovered turmeric’s secret – curcumin. This bioactive component has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties – and is said to rival ibuprofen.
Added to our September facial, turmeric’s ability to reduce inflammation and increase oxidation helps revive your skin, leaving it smoother and glowing. These same properties of turmeric’s curcumin also help wounds heal. Other studies suggest curcumin could help with eczema, alopecia and lichen planus … and other skin issues. So if you have acne or other scars, our Golden Glow Facial may have a beneficial healing effect.
Do you absentmindedly touch your face? If so, you are in the majority. Sadly, when this happens our hands are often covered with bacteria. So we have added honey to the facial to contribute an anti-bacterial benefit. In addition, honey is anti-septic because it contains an enzyme that produces hydrogen peroxide when diluted.
To this already very effective concoction, we add yogurt. Why? Because yogurt’s lactic acid is an alpha hydroxyl acid. (you’ll find AHA in skin care products!) It dissolves dead skin and tightens pores. And also contributes to reducing fine lines. Add anti-aging to the list of benefits.
Just sit back and relax…
And of course we always need to remind ourselves, setting aside 45 minutes to relax and unwind is equally important in looking our best. So come in and let treat your face to the September Golden Glow Facial.
