Benefits of Ginger

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.

If you also have any other ginger benefits make sure you tell me in the comments below too.

2 DIY Recipes for Dry Skin Problems

Winter brings the cold and dry weather which makes the skin flaky and dry. It sucks out the smoothness and moisture in the skin. Even though winter is not the only cause of dry skin; there are some other factors which are associated with dry skin such as nutritional deficiency, aging, and much more. Some of us may not take dry skin issues seriously because there are numbers of moisturizers and lotions available in the market. But, do you know that those kinds of lotions contain chemical ingredients which may make the dry skin conditions worse?

So, what is the solution to treat dry skin? Well, today on OiB, I am going to reveal natural DIY recipes for dry skin problems. If you have dry skin, you can use these recipes to bring back the skin’s moisture.

Milk

Milk has been the secret for beautiful skin for centuries. Even the famous Cleopatra is known to bath with milk which results in the healthy and glowing skin. Milk contains lactic acid which helps skin exfoliating and preserves the skin’s pH levels. For dry skin issue, milk works like magic because it is an excellent moisturizer. For deep moisturizer, I usually use:

  • Mix a teaspoon or two teaspoons of milk cream with some drops of lemon juice. Rub the mixture on the hands, legs, and other dry skin areas. Leave the mixture for some minutes and then take a shower.
  • Combine three or four tablespoons of flour and some milk cream into a thick paste. Apply the mixture in hands, legs, face, and other dry skin areas and leave the mixture for 15 minutes. I usually rinse the milk mask with lukewarm water and repeat the step once a day.

Oil therapy

When it comes to dry skin natural remedies, the best treatment that you can get is oil therapy. Applying oil or essential oil into the dry skin area will help restore the moisture in the skin. Oil therapy is not limited to certain oil selection only; in fact, you can use any oil that is available in the kitchen such as coconut oil, olive oil, avocado oil, grape seed oil, almond oil, and much more. I love applying olive oil or grape seed oil and give light massage to the body and then head for the shower. Heating the oil before applying to the body is also a good choice if you have some more free time. After the shower, I also apply a light moisturizer or sunscreen for sunscreen prevention.

Cinnamon in DIY Skincare

What to avoid?

When having dry skin, there are some points to avoid which are using scented soap and also avoid alcohol and caffeine. Scented soap and detergent are known for having irritant substances which can cause skin dry and irritation. It contains lots of chemical substances compared to the unscented products. In addition, to prevent dry skin, I also limit the alcohol and caffeine consumption because it makes the body dehydration. I drink more plain water to keep the skin healthy and moisturized from within.

Dry skin is indeed annoying; but with the right treatment, you can eliminate it and restore the skin moisture using simple home remedies such as milk and oil therapy.

Have you tried these treatments before? 🙂

DIY Calendula Homemade Lotion

  • 170gm cup Almond or olive oil
  • 85gm calendula oil
  • 85gm beeswax
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon Vitamin E oil

Instructions

  1. Combine ingredients in a pint sized or larger glass jar. I have a mason jar that I keep just for making lotions and lotion bars, or you can even reuse a glass jar from pickles, olives or other foods.
  2. Fill a medium saucepan with a couple inches of water and place over medium heat. Put a lid on the jar loosely and place in the pan with the water.
  3. As the water heats, the ingredients in the jar will start to melt. Shake or stir occasionally to incorporate. When all ingredients are completely melted, pour into whatever jar or tin you will use for storage. Small mason jars (8 ounces) are great for this. It will not pump well in a lotion pump!
  4. Use as you would regular lotion. This has a longer shelf life than some homemade lotion recipes since all ingredients are already shelf stable and not water is added. Use within 6 months for best moisturizing benefits.

Although Calendula essential oil is very beneficial, I would recommend to use it carefully.

Ever tried making homemade lotion? How did it go? Tell me in the comments below and thank you so much for your support!
