The Secret to Flawless Skin Is Hiding in Your Spice Rack

The Secret to Healthier Skin Is Hiding in Your Spice Rack

Imagine scoring healthy, flawless skin using ingredients you can find in your kitchen spice rack. Well, ladies, it’s very possible!

All you have to do is have a balanced diet that’s rich in anti-inflammatory foods to maintain a beautiful, glowing complexion. Here are herbs and spices that may hold the key to your best skin ever!

 

 

Four herbs and spices for flawless skin

1. Pepper

Spicy peppers such as cayenne, paprika and chilli are rich in vitamins A and C, which help fight free radicals. Therefore, try to include one or two peppers into your daily meals to see the benefits. Cayenne or red pepper flakes are also great for exfoliating dry, dead skin. You can also mix salt and some olive oil with either of the peppers for a soothing bath scrub.

2. Cinnamon

Cinnamon can help reverse signs of damage to the skin caused by the sun and environmental. It is a potent antioxidant. It can also help increase blood flow and circulation which increases skin repair and cell turnover. All you need to do is add a teaspoon of cinnamon a day to your smoothie, morning coffee or oatmeal.

3. Turmeric

Turmeric is famous for its anti-inflammatory benefits. To make it work for your skin, mix one teaspoon of turmeric powder with two tablespoons of flour, three tablespoons of raw milk and a few drops of raw honey. Use the mixture as a face mask. You can also toss half a teaspoon of ground turmeric into your omelette or morning smoothie.

4. Fennel seed

Fennel seed is another great anti-inflammatory ingredient. It helps to quickly reduce redness and skin sensitivity. Try to include 1-4 g of fennel seed into your diet daily. You ca also use it as a topping for a smoothie bowl!

Just remember, natural remedies such as the ones listed above can sometimes have side effects in some people.
