This Is What Turmeric Does To Your Skin

Joanna Fleming

Everyone seems to be getting into turmeric lately, and not just in latte form. Miranda Kerr’s latest obsession is her new KORA Organics Turmeric Brightening & Exfoliating Mask (and everyone else seems to be loving it, too).

Why Turmeric?

Used for hundreds of years as a spice and medicinal herb, turmeric has quickly gained popularity in the Western world for it’s antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, hence the sudden rise of the turmeric latte I mentioned earlier. So why does it belong in KORA Organics newest product?

“I’m obsessed—this is my at-home instant facial! The super-fine granules deeply exfoliate, leaving my skin soft and glowing. I also suffer from pigmentation and this mask has made a dramatic difference in lightening my dark spots.” – Miranda

What Do The Reviews Say?

★★★★★ Amazing product – Laura

“I have been using the Turmeric Face Mask for about two weeks now and can already see and feel the difference. It’s winter here in Australia at the moment and it has been fantastic to find a product that gives such a great exfoliation, allowing skin to absorb all of the necessary nutrients and moisture needed during winter.”

★★★★★ Even complexion – Chery

“I just recently purchased this out of curiosity, but also because the past few months I’ve noticed my complexion looking a bit dull and have not had the time to get a facial. After using this for the first time, I already started to notice a brighter look. Can’t wait to use this tomorrow for the second time! I also love the long lasting cooling sensation I get from this product even after washing it off.”

★★★★★ Ridiculously good – Courtney

“This product is absolutely amazing. I love the smell, I love the colour, I love how invigorating it is and how my skin looks so fresh and healthy looking afterwards. Highly recommend, it’s a must have!”
