It isn’t expected that the spices that add a zing to our favorite dish can also be great for our beauty routine. If used in a right way, the products in your cupboard and shelves are no match for these! Read on to know the spices you could add to your beauty routine:
GINGER FOR PIGMENTATION
Ginger can aid in skin rejuvenation and it improves the skin color and texture. Ginger paste can be applied on the skin as a face mask to reduce acne, pigmentation and blemishes. It not only prevents and heal acne but also evens out skin tone! Ginger, lemon, sugar (take a generous amount of this), and olive oil can be used mixed together and used as a body scrub to treat body acne. Mix equal amounts of ginger juice with honey and apply it on the pigmentation for 15 mins before you rinse off with cold water. Make sure you first do a patch test as sensitive skin can feel irritated due to ginger.
GARLIC FOR GORGEOUS HAIR
Since garlic has high amount of amino acid, it helps restore and re-energise hair follicles thereby giving you healthy and strong hair. The Vitamin C in garlic further promotes hair growth. Take a few garlic pods and dip them in olive oil. Leave them in castor oil for a week. Now massage this oil into your scalp, allow it to rest for a couple of hours so that the benefit transfers to your hair and then rinse off to getting thick hair.
