For you teenagers, who just stepped on puberty or for you adult people, you might have facial problems. You may always clean your face every morning and night and use facial moisturizer. You may also use face mask while sleeping or when you get home from work. Lots of ingredients to make facial masks. Manufacture facial masks with various brands, they say that the mask is natural, but that’s not true, no one of them is completely natural.
There are cheap face masks and some are expensive even if only once usage. On the other hand, natural masks have the advantage to make skin more comfortable. But you can not be wrong, natural ingredients can make our bodies allergic and also inflamed or blister because it does not match our skin.
Using garlic as a face mask
Things that make me asking when I look at it from many people who say that garlic is useful for facial skin. I asked myself did they ever try garlic as their face mask?
Garlic is an acidic kitchen material, pH reaches 3 to 5.8. It’s already fairly acidic for our skin. Especially allicin compounds in garlic can cause acid conditions to rise, it can cause skin blister. More deeply, garlic contains sulphite compounds, especially hydrogen sulphide. This compound is an odorous compound. This causes the garlic to smell sharp when sliced. In normal conditions, the hydrogen sulfide is not too harmful to your skin surface. However, if hydrogen sulfide reacts with your sweat, this compound will become sulfuric acid. Don’t you know that sulfuric acid can cause skin irritation. People often call it burning. Many people say their skin is blistered, and indeed, their skin is blistered.
I used it myself. Someone told me that the crushed garlic can cure rheumatism. This also applies if your body parts such as hands or feet feel sore. Garlic mashed applied to the body parts that feel pain. You know what happened? It’s very hot and burned. So that I never use it anymore for the application on the skin. What if you use it for facial skin? You must be know what will happen. Only one word “burned”.
I remind you carefully for health, especially beauty do not try. Seek information from experienced people. After they recommend to you, then you try it. Of course with the proper dosage and the right steps.
Garlic remains one of the bulbs that has many health benefits. Many people love garlic as a snack or eaten raw. Hypertension disease can also be cured because of garlic. If you only use a piece of garlic to get rid of acne, it is still tolerable, but if you use garlic as a face mask, it will be ridiculous.
For those of you who are suitable to use garlic as a mask, maybe you can do it so on. However, for many people who can only speak, do not trap others by saying that garlic may be useful as a facial mask application. To prove it, you can try by using it yourself at home. Never use garlic as your face mask. Use other ingredients such as dregs of black tea, honey, avocado, and pumpkin, etc.
