See 4 ways to take advantage of its indispensable qualities for more beautiful and he althy skin.
For tired skin
Coriander is high in vitamin C – a powerful antioxidant, which is associated with youthful skin. Vitamin C helps fight free radicals, which are a leading cause of skin damage, as they can break down collagen and elastin.
If you notice that your skin looks tired and dull, then this face mask is exactly what it needs.
- 2 – 3 coriander leaves
- 1 tablespoon aloe vera
- 1 tablespoon yogurt
- 1 teaspoon honey
Cut the coriander finely and combine it with the other ingredients. Apply the resulting mixture on a cleansed face and neck. Leave on for 15-20 minutes and rinse with lukewarm water. If necessary, finish with a moisturizing cream.
On black dots
Vitamin C in coriander stops the oxidation of the sebum released by the skin, which greatly facilitates the treatment of this skin problem. To improve the condition of your skin, combine fresh coriander juice with lemon juice.
Apply the resulting mixture on the problem areas and let it dry. Then rinse with lukewarm water. Do this care every other day, and if you notice that your skin is more sensitive to the combination, dilute its application.
If you suffer from acne
After blackheads, acne is the other skin blemish that can prove stubborn to treat. Fortunately, the green spice has powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and antifungal propertiesthat fight acne-causing microbes and soothe inflamed areas of your skin.
To make coriander lotion, boil 300 ml of water. Add to it a few chopped coriander leaves, a teaspoon of dried chamomile and a teaspoon of lemongrass, which you can replace with parsley. Let the herbs steep for 20-30 minutes. Then, with a cotton pad, apply the cooled mixture on a cleansed face. After it dries, you can rinse with lukewarm water.
Do this care every day or every other day.
For skin wrinkles
Over time, our skin loses its ability to produce collagen and as a result begins to lose its elasticity, density, and fine lines appear. Vitamin C contained in coriander stimulates the skin to synthesize collagen. To preserve your youth for a longer time do once or twice a week coriander mask.
You will need:
- 2-3 coriander leaves
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tablespoon oatmeal
All ingredients are combined in a kitchen blender until a homogeneous mixture is obtained. The mask is applied to cleansed skin. After 15 minutes, you can rinse with lukewarm water and, if necessary, apply a moisturizing cream.
