Who’d ever thought that garlic was the solution to pimples?
If you get pimples on a regular basis, you know how annoying it can be. Especially because they usually appear right when you have something important coming up, like a job interview or a date. You can get busy will all kinds of creams that promise to dehydrate the pimple or you could even try popping it. The result? Red skin with perhaps even a tiny wound. Luckily, we’ve got the solution. Next time you want to get rid of a pimple, grab some garlic!
Are you going to give this a try?
Nearly everyone will have a bulb of garlic lying in the pantry. A clove of garlic adds instant flavour to any pasta sauce, but it’s also a great addition to soups or Asian dishes. Besides being delicious, garlic is also very healthy. This bulbous plant is very good for your immune system and it has an anti-inflammatory function as well. Because of this anti-inflammatory function, raw garlic also helps against high cholesterol levels: it prevents clogging of the arteries. So, try making tzatziki or aioli with raw garlic a little more often, or add a bit of it to a salad dressing to enjoy this health benefit.
So, there are plenty of health benefits to eating garlic, but there are even more benefits besides those. Garlic is especially beneficial to the skin. Back in the 18th century, soldiers rubbed garlic on their wounds to prevent infections. We don’t recommend doing this now we have modern medicine to do a better job, but it does prove that garlic can prevent or even heal infections and inflammations. This is exactly the kind of thing we need when it comes to pimples because a pimple is nothing more than a small inflammation of the skin.
