The magic of Turmeric!
We are crazy about Turmeric, so we created a product that both did some heavy hitting work, but also included this beautiful ingredient. So you might just be asking ok, so what's the big deal. Well, let us tell you all about it and our new product called Renew: Detox, Peel and Polish with Turmeric, but let's talk about the magic of turmeric first.
Turmeric powder is made from the root of Curcuma Zedoaria, a form of ginger native to Southeast Asia. It's active ingredient is curcumin, and is what gives it that yellowish-orange tint. It is also what makes it such a potent anti-inflammatory. We have only recently acknowledged this magical ingredient here in the west and began to add it to our products. Eastern cultures have known it's benefits for hundreds of years and begun including turmeric in their products some time ago.
Turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and antioxidant effects that benefit the skin in many ways. It has been reported to support healing with eczema, psoriasis, acne and wound healing. It is also known for lightening pigmentation, slowing down the skin aging process, diminishing wrinkles and keeping skin supple, thus improving skin's elasticity. Thus, the inspirations to create a new product that we could include it in.
Here is a little bit about Renew: Detox, Peel and Polish with Turmeric. A self-heating affect allows pores to open, while an array of minerals and clay deep clean and detoxify skin. Turmeric and Niaminamide provide brightening, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, while helping improve skins texture and tone. This treatment enzyme will revitalize, brighten, increase cell turnover, minimize pore size and reveal more beautiful and glowing skin. Perilite, combined with Papaya and Pumpkin Enzymes gently exfoliate skin to improve the appearance of fine lines, age spots freckles and rough skin.
How to use it: Apply approximately 1 teaspoon to slightly damp skin and gently massage in, avoiding the delicate tissue around the eyes. Let set for 7 – 10 minutes, wet finger tips and gently massage in and remove with sponges or a steamed towel. Apply Daily Toning Lotion to calm and soothe pores. Follow with extractions, massage and mask to finish treatment.++ Please note, this is a self heating mask, which means the client will feel the heat, but that is just to open pores, it is not a poor reaction to the treatment. When rinsed, the skin appears slightly pink to neutral.
