Get Garlic Working To Zap Acne


You love it in your pasta, you sprinkle it on your pizza, and you definitely love its flavor in your noodles and soup! You might have even kept some under your pillow after watching ‘Count Dracula’ for the first time ! However, have you ever used it to battle those horrid, angry, red zits?

Garlic is a common kitchen herb that has been for long as an alternative medicine for a number of health issues ranging from fungal infections to heart disease. It is rich in Allicin, sulphur, calcium and zinc, and  is a rich source of selenium. Garlic is known to possess strong antiviral, antifungal, antiseptic and antioxidant properties and is known to increase ones stamina and immunity. While it does so much for the body, it does wonders for your skin too!

One of its most powerful properties is to reduce acne, acne spots, and brighten skin. Its antioxidant properties help fight free radicals, enhancing blood circulation and giving your skin a glow. The antifungal, antibacterial and antiseptic properties of garlic prevent re-occurrences of acne breakouts giving you clear skin.

Here are three ways to use garlic to prevent acne:

  1. Use it raw – You can apply raw garlic directly to the affected area. Simply slice a piece of fresh garlic and rub the juice on a zit. Wash after 5 minutes. Your pimple’s redness will reduce within the day and you won’t be left with an acne scar on your skin.
  2. Use it in a Pack – Mash 3-4 pods of garlic to form a paste. Add half a teaspoon of honey and 1 teaspoon of yogurt and mix. Apply the paste on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Wash with cold water. This treatment helps reduce acne, clears acne spots and blemishes, tones and moisturizes the skin without burning it.
  3. Eat it – Consuming a clove of garlic or garlic capsules daily can strengthen your immunity system. Its antioxidant properties can help reduce wrinkles.

This beauty wonder found in your kitchen is one of the fastest way to reduce those achy, red, pimply acne flareups. Remember to use a mouth freshener when you eat it 🙂
