Ugh! I hate pimples! Who invented pimples in the first place!? lol, seriously. I don't think acne should exist, but unfortunately it does. But enough about the problem, I have a solution: GARLIC CLOVES. 

Did you know that Garlic can minimize pimples and get rid of them OVERNIGHT?!

Facts:

  • The most famous medicinal compound in garlic is the sulphur based allicin,  which breaks down into sulfenic acid, which is antioxidant, and a particularly potent one. It’s anti – oxidant property helps to fight against free radicals which can damage the body or skin cells.The allicin in garlic kills the bacteria that clog pores and cause acne breakouts.
  • Garlic has anti – bacterial, anti-fungal, anti – viral and anti – septic properties that help to prevent clogged pores and thus, reduces the acne. In addition, Garlic has sulfur compounds called thiacremonon, which acts as a drying agent and also removes acne scars on the skin.
  • Garlic has an excellent source of various acne combating nutrients like vitamins (C and B6), minerals, selenium, copper, allicin, zinc and other phyto-nutrients.

PHEW! Who would have ever guessed that garlic cloves could help kill acne!?

So here's what to do, DIY:

  1. Take 1 raw garlic clove and snap it in half
  2. Spread the garlic juice onto the problem area. 
  3. Leave garlic juice on acne spot overnight, for best results

Voila! It's really that simple. Garlic can be used topically and internally to treat and minimize acne. So from someone, who like many, struggle with acne I totally suggest that you hit up the grocery store for garlic cloves, get rid of those pimples, and shine bright like a DIAMOND!

I can't wait for you try this holistic DIY. Let me know how fast those pimples dissapear!
