It seems like the beauty industry is always revealing new products and ingredients that promise healthier-looking skin. Of course, it can be hard to cut through the noise and determine what’s hype and what’s actually worth the investment. Recently, the beauty community has been buzzing about the benefits of golden milk. However, golden milk is far from new.

The drink in Hindi is “haldi doodh,” or turmeric milk. Turmeric has been in India for over 5,000 years as a medicinal herb and flavor addition to food. It can treat ailments, inflammation, aches, pains and even restlessness, among other things. You will also find the herb referenced in Ayurvedic practices to treat various health conditions.

Golden milk is more than just a delicious hot beverage. Its main ingredient, turmeric, contains curcumin, a powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant. This means that if you suffer from inflammation, obnoxious breakouts, hives or rosacea, golden milk may decrease your symptoms.

If you want to create your own golden milk at home, Moon Juice’s Cosmic Gold is a supplement that you can add to any milk (or beverage) of your choice.
