A lot of the recipes that I share with you contain several different ingredients that work together but some things work extremely well on their own. I have already shared a lot of these stand-alone beauty warriors, like honey, lemon juice, milk, avocado, and oatmeal, but there are a lot we have yet to cover. Today’s post is all about a one-ingredient wonder perfect for blemishes that Vampires might want to skip.
If you’re oily or acne-prone and not sensitive to smells you can use a clove of garlic to get rid of bumps and blemishes. Garlic is like nature’s antibiotic. It is naturally antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral which makes it a perfect skin savior. If you have a pimple all you need to do is cut a clove of garlic in half and rub it directly onto the spot. Rinse off after 5 minutes. Don’t use more than once a day.
If you don’t like the sound of rubbing pure garlic on your face you can always make a toner by boiling a cup of water and a smashed clove of garlic together. Let it cool and pour it into a small bottle. You can use this after cleansing to help clear your skin.
Be careful though, because garlic can cause irritation for those of you with sensitive skin because of the Sulfuric acid. Make sure to do a patch test before applying garlic as a treatment.
