Kitchen Treasures for Healthy and Beautiful Skin
Vegetable and spices are necessary in our kitchen. They play a vital part in our diet and nutrition. Now, you can even make your own beauty regimen out of those veggies and spices in your kitchen.
I listed some commonly known veggies and spices that can help in the maintenance of healthy and beautiful skin.
Almond- almond oil is good for treating dry skin and removing scars of old pimples and zits. Pour hot water on the almonds and allow them to soak until the skin comes off. Dry them and grind them into a powder. Keep this in a jar. Daily add a little milk to some of the powder and use the paste to cleanse the face by rubbing the skin gently with it. Almond powder can also be added to face packs.
Cabbage- is rich in vitamin and minerals. The water used in boiling cabbage can be used to rinse the face after washing.
Carrots- smashed carrot pulp makes good face packs.
Garlic- raw garlic is known to treat persistent pimples.
Oats- Oats are also highly absorptive, hypoallergenic, and help to soften skin. They have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains. Oats have also been clinically shown to help heal dry, itchy skin. The edible grains of a widely grown cereal grass, oats (avena sativa) appear in many beauty products. People appreciate their soothing, anti-inflammatory properties. Come to think of it, that's another childhood memory. When I got the chicken pox my mom popped me into an oatmeal and baking soda bath to relieve the itching. They have the best amino acid balance of all the cereal grains (amino acids work as water-binding agents in skin care products). Oats have also been clinically shown to help heal dry, itchy skin. Oat grains and straw appear in shampoos, dusting powders, moisturizers, and cleansing bars and that's just the start of a list!
Potatoes- apply grated potato as poultice to treat skin blemishes, pimples, boils, whiteheads and blackheads.
Radish- paste made from ground radish seeds is effective in removing blackheads. Grated white radish juice is used as a skin whitener.
Rice- paste made from rice powder is used as poultice to sooth bleeding pimples and other skin inflammations.
Sandalwood- sandalwood is known to treat pimples.
Tomato- red tomato pulps can be used to treat pimples. Good tomatoes are an abundant source of vitamins A, B (including folic acid), and C; potassium and magnesium; and valuable antioxidants and trace elements.
Turmeric- paste made from turmeric powder can be used to treat remove wrinkles, dark circles under the eyes, minor skin blemishes as well as prevent skin aging.
So there next time you go to your kitchen, look closely at your veggies and spices. Remember that your kitchen is a haven of natural beauty products that can actually save your skin.
