Some spices are good for your skin and are rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory agents. So, let’s take a look at five most commonly used spices that are good for your skin.
Turmeric: Traditionally known as Indian saffron because of its deep yellow-orange colour, turmeric provides amazing healing benefits, not just inside the body, but also on your skin.
Cinnamon: We use cinnamon abundantly in our foods to add flavour, but for years now people have been using this to treat various skin ailments and disorders.
Pepper: Pepper, when mixed with other ingredients (e.g. yogurt/ turmeric + rose water) and applied on the skin can loosen up the pores and facilitate the removal of blackheads and acne.
Ginger: Ginger has some awesome beauty benefits. Eating ginger can help fight wrinkles! The food is packed with antioxidants, which reduce toxins in skin cells while increasing blood circulation, helping to reduce the appearance of ageing.
Garlic: The beauty benefits of garlic include anti-ageing. Allicin, an organic compound present in garlic destroys some of the harmful free-radicals that cause skin cell damage.
