Lots of people would devour a whole plate of garlic bread. They’d even ask for extra on their pasta. But will they use it to look better? This is probably the last thing on earth that you would think about incorporating into your skin care routine. These tiny cloves pack a mean punch. Yes, they can do more for you other than give you bad breath and make every take better.
Is Garlic Good For Your Skin?
Garlic rituals, when it comes to skin, are pretty effective. I’m going to share all the reasons why it is truly great for your skin and why you should start to incorporate it into your routine.
For starters, this Allium is jam packed with antioxidants and can protect you from bacteria. It also helps you fight free radicals that can become present in your skin. The antioxidant factor helps you reduce the presence of age spots. In short, this herb can make you look younger and reduce the aging process.
Here are a few things that can be treated with a little bit of garlic…
Is your skin dry? Well, this can be a lifesaver when it comes to dry skin. I’ve already mentioned the high number of antioxidants and the antibacterial power that this offensively scented allium possesses. Well, it also contains lactic acid and that acid works like a charm to moisturize your skin.
Allium sativum can also help you get rid of nasty whiteheads. A little bit of elbow grease to exfoliate your skin with a secret mixture and you’re on your way to being whitehead free.
Acne can be a tough thing to get rid of. All the bacteria that exists on your skin that causes acne can be tough to deal with. The good news is that some of the antifungal and anti-bacterial properties that exist in garlic make it perfect for soothing your acne.
If you’re one of those that are prone to getting lines, then you want to listen up! Garlic contains sulfur and sulfur help boost collagen. That said, incorporating some of this into your skin care routine can possibly help you reduce the fine lines, making your skin look tighter than ever in the most natural way possible.
