Here is another article I happened upon....it is very thought provoking...we have discussed this spice often but it always good for a rerun!
You might even want to try making your own cream using turmeric! here is a blurb I took from the article...
Dr. Madalene Heng, a Ventura County-based dermatologist, is already marketing a curcumin-based product. She has developed Psoria-Gold, a topical ointment that she says will treat psoriasis, acne and rosacea. A 6-ounce vial costs $89.95, but Heng says the cream is so potent even in small doses that it will last six months. One treatment for psoriasis will make the skin disease disappear, Heng claims.
And, she says, it will even smooth away wrinkles.
