Turmeric spice is used for years in Asian, Thai and Indian cooking, The spice is unique and stands out for a yellow-orange color. This distinctive curry spice stands out in flavor and color. I use Pereg spices because I like to buy from companies tied to Israel.

When my customers ask me about natural foods they can use in their recipes I think of Turmeric spice, because it is not only used for flavorful dishes. Indian woman have been using Turmeric for centuries as a skincare ingredient.

The benefits of Turmeric in skincare include several anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce redness and calm irritations from Rosacea. Do you have Dark Circles under your eyes? Turmeric can help lighten your skin tone for your eyes and even out skin pigmentation all over your face.

The Perfect Toast –A Kosher Wine With Beauty Benefits

Did you know the beauty benefits contained within a pomegranate? While we celebrate the 613 seeds, we can have a L’Chaim from Royal Wines. Pomegranates have many health and beauty benefits according to multiple medical institutions.

Beauty Benefits
Regenerate Cells. Pomegranate protects the epidermis and dermis by encouraging skin cell regeneration, aiding in the repair of tissues, healing wounds and encouraging circulation to skin that is healing.
Protect from the Sun. Consuming pomegranate provides the skin with compounds that help to protect against free radical damage which can cause sun damage, cancer and sunburn. The oil of a pomegranate contains the antioxidant ellagic acid that can help to inhibit skin tumors to protect the body from skin cancer.
Slow Aging. Pomegranates can help to prevent hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles that are often caused by sun damage.
Produce Youthful Skin. Because pomegranates help to soften the skin and produce additional elastin and collagen it can make your skin look more firm, smooth and youthful.
Help with Dry Skin. Pomegranates are often added to skin care products because they have a molecular structure that can penetrate deep layers of most skin types to provide additional moisture.
Use for Oily or Combination Skin. Oily or combination skin types that are acne prone can use pomegranate to sooth these outbreaks and minimize burns or scarring that can occur during breakouts.
