Cool off with an easy cilantro facial.
Cilantro has antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties that are helpful and soothing for many irritating skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis.
These qualities also make it a great acne fighter, and it is believed to help lighten skin and promote a more even tone. It has a cooling effect and can be calming for irritated areas.
Cilantro's properties make it especially great for aging, sensitive or acne-prone skin. It has so many benefits from use internally and externally, so it's a good fridge (or garden) staple.
DIY Cooling Cilantro Facial Recipe:
Puree 2-4 tablespoons of juice, water or milk with a big handful of cilantro.
Add oats if desired to thicken and encourage skin repair. You can also use a combo of cilantro juice and lime juice as a daily treatment for blackheads - apply with cotton, leave on 1 hour and rinse.
