Turmeric

This bright yellow root has been used in both Indian and Chinese traditional medicine for centuries. Curcumin, the active chemical compound in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce depression and pain. Studies have shown that oral intake of curcumin helps with acne, atopic dermatitis, and facial photoaging (sun damage). In this formulation, turmeric is paired with black pepper in order to increase the bioavailability of curcumin.

There are many varieties stemming from the multitude of species of roses that can be found all over the world. Historically, they have been used both as a source of food and as a medicine throughout many cultures for a wide variety of reasons, with the main uses having been for circulation, lotions, tonics, and purifications (both spiritually and physically).

"...As corny as it sounds, I don’t think anyone needs to look a certain way to be beautiful. I think beauty is all about being kind, self-aware, open, and being unapologetically yourself. There’s truly nothing more beautiful than someone who is so in tune with who they are, and so shamelessly themselves. That confidence is always so radiating, and something I’ve always admired. "
