It has been said that "You are what you wear or have," but this slogan no longer holds much water today. What has replaced it? "You are what you eat."
What goes into your stomach determines your health level. That's why many people across the world have slowly gone back to natural foods. Garlic is among the powerful natural ingredients most people have in their kitchen cabinets today. It's known to help prevent cancer, keep colds away, have anti-inflammatory properties, fight bacteria and fungus and prevent food poisoning. But have you thought about how garlic and beauty interrelate? Garlic is good for your skin and hair in the following ways:
Removes Whiteheads and Blackheads
Whiteheads and blackheads compromise the beauty of your skin in a big way. People with oily skin are vulnerable to these skin problems, but taking garlic regularly reduces their occurrence. Crush 2-3 garlic cloves and add one teaspoon of oats. Add a half teaspoon of lemon juice and a little honey and two drops of oil from a tea tree. Mix these ingredients and apply the mixture on areas with whiteheads or blackheads. Use a paste to exfoliate your skin gently and rinse it using warm water.
Do this three times a week, and you won't believe the glowing skin you develop.
Enhances Hair Health
Your hair reveals much about you, and you shouldn't ignore this. You have always bought and used different shampoos and conditioners to boost the health of your hair. However, you are sometimes unhappy with the results because you use these products "as they are." You should instead infuse some garlic juice in your shampoo or conditioner and then use it. Add some honey to reduce the overpowering smell. The garlic juice contained in these hair products will enhance hair texture, get rid of harmful toxins and treat itchy scalp and dandruff.
Eradicates Stubborn Acne
Acne is a skin disease that leaves the victims with reduced joy, self-esteem and peace of mind. Garlic has powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal properties that fight pesky acne within a short period. Buy garlic cloves and cut them up to make a garlic pack. Squeeze it to release some juice and then apply the juice directly to acne-affected skin. Wait for about 5 minutes and then wash the garlic off using cold water. The powerful garlic juice reduces the redness and swelling quickly.
Garlic also prevents grey hair, minimises enlarged pores and lightens the skin. The healthy lustrous hair and glowing skin you envy hide in that pungent smell. Garlic elevates the antioxidant levels of your body and skin, and that's how its beauty benefits come about. Buy garlic today and always include it in your hair-care and skincare regimen.Share
