Garlic is a natural antioxidant that slows the aging process of skin and body. It is true that it has an unpleasant odor that many people can’t stand, but it’s worth using it for its therapeutic properties, especially antibacterial and antiseptic. Before using garlic in beauty treatments, you have to clean the skin of impurities, dust and any trace of cosmetic product, even around the eye area.

You need: – a few garlic cloves
Peel the garlic cloves and pass through a juicer. You have to use organic and healthy garlic cloves, not altered or germinated.
Apply the garlic juice directly on the skin affected by acne, and let it act for 15-20 minutes. For those with sensitive skin, if this treatment causes redness or a burning sensation, you better dilute the garlic juice with 1 teaspoon of olive oil or 1 teaspoon of cabbage or carrot juice.
Another option is to use the same quantity of garlic cloves, but instead of juicing them, crush them to form a paste.
Apply the paste twice a day, in the morning and evening, and let it act for 30 minutes.
Important: avoid the eye area because the sin is very sensitive there. After a few days of using this treatment, you’ll see how acne will disappear.
