The state of your skin is highly dependent on your food intake. So, if healthy, flawless skin is one of your beauty objectives, include some herbs in your diet. I list my five favourites.
For the goodness of India’s favourite herb, all you have to do is head to your kitchen counter. This fabulous ingredient purifies blood, nourishes the skin and gives it a healthy natural glow. Turmeric has anti-inflammatory, anti-aging and anti-bacterial properties that help reduce inflammation of skin, acne, pimples and blemishes.
Suffering from oily skin prone to pimples? Sip into the benefits of peppermint, a really helpful herb that not only adds flavour to your tea but also controls excess oil and lends complete freedom from acne. That’s not all; because of its cooling, menthol content, it will reduce the redness in your face and also give you a healthy, clear glow!
