Ginger is my Beauty Booster

Ginger on skincare? Sorry! Yes. You heard correctly 😉 Native from China and India, ginger is way more than just that an ordinary plants. It has a number of properties to qualify as a beauty booster as well. And the best part? The ingredient is one that is almost at all times sitting at the bottom of your vegetable basket. So no need to run around digging up plants for this one! Here are 5 reasons why you skin should be getting more of ginger.

Benefits of Ginger
Lets talk about the benefits of Ginger – OrganicIsBeautiful
  • Burn Support

It is surprising to know that the natural situation of the skin is regained if ginger is applied directly to the place where the burn has taken place. It also helps to reduce the pain for the burn. Besides rubbing a fresh ginger slice, one can also apply fresh ginger juice for the same effect. If it is applied twice or thrice a day, it can help to remove different scars too.

This takes effect in 6 to 12 weeks while the ginger slice should be fresh every time you apply it.

You Will Never Thought That Knowing Ginger Skincare Could Be So Beneficial!
  • Anti-Aging

Ginger has more than 40 antioxidants in it.

That’s an impressive number to keep in mind!

This is why it greatly helps in anti-aging. The toxins are flushed out due to which the body circulation of the blood is improved. This in turn helps to have improvement in the skin appearance because it provides more nutrients to the skin.

They also prevent damage from different free radicals which is why the youth of the skin is not lost. The elasticity and firmness is maintained and aging is slowed down.

  • Acne and Spots

Acne and spots or different related blemishes are more like a curse to many people. Ginger can work wonders here. Ginger is a very powerful antiseptic and cleansing agent. It helps to keep the skin clear as well as free of any residues. As a result, the skin is invigorated and the blemishes are also lessened.

Acne-causing bacteria is also killed by ginger which is why it is also known as the best natural acne-fighting weapon of all. This way the rate of acne formation is also minimized.

  • White Scars

Hyper-pigmentation can also be solved with the help of ginger. The white spots are now no more of a problem at all. The skin becomes lighter or white at some places in comparison to other patches of the skin. The use of ginger reduces the appearance of this pigmentation.

If you apply a fresh slice of ginger to your skin and leave it on for some time, then the results can sometimes be seen in just 2 weeks.

Healthy Infused Water

All functions of the body require water. It’s the body’s natural purifier, replenisher and hydrator and we need lots of it to keep our bodies functioning properly. The only problem about water is it can get a little boring. And when things get boring, watch out! That’s when we start reaching for sugary drinks. I’m avoiding all that by adding Fruit-Infused Water to my daily routine. And I have to tell you, I am absolutely loving it!

I thought I would share some of the ones I have been drinking.

  • Cucumber, Mint and Lime. Slices of cucumber, slices of half a lime and sprigs of mint mixed together with water. I found this one to have the most flavour compared to others.
  • Cucumber, Lime, Strawberry and Mint. Slices of cucumber, chopped up strawberry, slices of lime and sprigs of mint.So I added strawberry, but it’s worked!
  • Lime, Ginger and Mint. Slices of lime, sprigs of mint and slices of ginger cut up. I added more ginger into this one as I found it less gingery.

  • Lime, Kiwi, Mint and Coconut Water. Slices of lime, kiwi chopped up, sprigs of mint and coconut water. I’m not a big fan of coconut water, but putting a little at the bottom topped up with water is delicious.

The “recipe” is pretty simple. Just place slices/sprigs of your favorite flavors into a pitcher or glass. Fill with water. The longer it sits, the more intense the flavor. Then, just keep refilling with water. Drink the infused water within 2 days to keep the flavors fresh. (And I try to use organic produce whenever possible)

Once you find your favorite flavors, it’s easy to get hooked! If you come to a party at my house, there is a good chance you’ll see a big pitcher of infused water on the drink table. It’s not just tasty, it’s also very pretty to look at.

I love to make a big batch and sip on it all day. Or if I’m out and about I pour some in my reusable water bottle that I always keep with me. It’s a fun way to drink water at work or on the go. So, what are you waiting for? Go get your drink on! You know what I mean…

Here’s to the beginning of summer! Cheers 🙂
