Beauty Benefits of Ginger for Your Skin

November 24, 2015

We all know that ginger is a wonderful home remedy for everything from an upset stomach to cold and flu symptoms. But did you know it also has some impressive beauty benefits? It's true.

1. Anti-aging

Ginger is abundant in antioxidants that are responsible for not only increasing blood circulation, but fighting off free radicals that protect our skin. Antioxidants are our heroes, fighting off those dreaded signs of aging like dull skin, fine lines, and wrinkles, and keep skin looking youthful.

2. Blemishes

With its powerful antiseptic properties, ginger eliminates acne-causing bacteria that clog pores to clear up skin imperfections and reduce the inflammation caused by unsightly blemishes.

3. Burns & Blisters

Ginger will come to the rescue if you're suffering from skin burns. By dabbing some cotton soaked in ginger juice, you can calm abrasions on the skin instantly.

4. Radiant skin

In addition to cleansing, fighting blemishes, and making your skin more radiant, ginger also gets to work on toning your skin. Hurrah! Try mixing grated ginger with a natural face mask to help to moisturize and soften the skin, leaving it supple and glowing.

5. Scars

The antioxidant properties of ginger can also reduce the appearance of hypo-pigmented scars (scars that are white or much lighter than your skin tone). Try applying a slice of fresh ginger onto the areas of your skin that are lacking colour and let the juice dry. Within a few months, your scar should be nearly undetectable.
