Ginger

Benefits

Anti-aging

Ginger is anti-oxidant (it actually has about 40 antioxidant compounds) which help protect our skin from signs of aging. It works by increasing circulation to the skin, which in turn boosts the delivery of nutrients, making your skin better nourished and healthy. It also increases skin elasticity, evens the tone, and protects it from free radicals which all contribute to making your skin appear more youthful and rejuvenated.

Acne & Blemishes

Ginger’s antiseptic and cleansing properties help keep the skin smooth and reduce blemishes. On top of increasing blood circulation, it also reduces the bacteria which contribute to acne.

As a great antiseptic, ginger cleanses the skin and keeps it blemish-free by invigorating and stimulating the skin. It not only reduces the chance of breakouts; it also clears acne-causing bacteria and helps clear the skin.

Toning

Ginger’s toning, aphrodisiac, and antioxidant properties can work wonders when it comes to giving you a more even tone.

Treatment of Hyperpigmentation – (white scars)

The antioxidant and skin toning properties of ginger significantly help to reduce the appearance of hypopigmented skin, which results when a part of the skin loses its pigmentation or appears whiter than the rest. 

Exfoliation

The gritty nature of grated ginger makes for a great exfoliator, as its texture works in scraping off excess sebum, dead skin cells, as well as any impurities in your pores.
