I too have had acne all my life and I just starting taking the garlic supplements. I am amazed!! My skin has never looked or felt better. It took about 1 week for my skin to heal but I will take the garlic supplements from now on!!
Hi, I have recurring pimples since many years and I've used many products but nothing worked for me. Finally I've decided to use use home remedies and found ginger & garlic are very helpful. I've started using it. The correct method is apply ginger-garlic paste in small quantity on the affected area and in while applying it will burn, then leave it for whole night and see the difference it is really great the pimple scars will shade off and the upcoming pimples will stop and squeeze off, but try in a correct manner.........
LAST NIGHT I TRIED USING MASHED GARLIC FROM YOUR WEBSITE ON THE ACNE AREAS FOR JUST 5-10 MIN. WHEN I APPLIED IT IT REALLY BURNED BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS DOING ITS JOB. THIS MORNING WHEN I LOOKED AT MY FACE I WAS SHOCKED, IT WAS SOOOO RED!!!! DO NOT USE MASHED GARLIC ON THE FACE IT WILL BURN!!!!
RAW GARLIC. garlic is a natural, powerful antibacterial. the antibacterial compound is called allicin. It works when eaten raw. yes, RAW. it burns the stomach, but well worth the immediate results. I finely chop a clove of garlic when my acne gets severe, put it on a spoon, and swallow it with some water like powder medicine.
*** CAUTION: do NOT eat on an empty stomach!.
I HIGHLY recommend you eat it with/right after meals or have a bottle of antacids ready. ***
This causes garlic breath and you sweat out garlic because your blood carries allicin through your body. Think about it--antibacterial sweat and blood! My face clears up after a good night's sleep and i get no new acne when i do this twice a day (morning and before sleep). The only downside is that it doesn't help take away scarring. Oooh, and smelling like garlic. My mom says I reek but personally, i love the smell.
I read on this website that you can apply garlic to your acne to get rid of it. Well so i went to the kitchen, chopped up some garlic, mixes it with a tiny bit of water to make a mash. I applied it to my face and covered it with bandages and tape and went to bed. When i woke up, I was hoping my acne would be all gone but instead, to my horror, I had blisters and burned skin! It even burned all my healthy skin! Now i look even worse then before. I have put honey on my skin and left it on all day. I look disgusting now. I should of just tried a little bit on and then just rubbed it off.
Garlic is amazing. I eat it both raw and cooked. I noticed it brought my blood sugar level down, so that was a good side effect. I try to eat some everyday raw in salad, roasted and mixed with butter for bread or just top it on soup after the soup is cooked. I had a great body cleansing effect. I then decided to crush the garlic and mix with apple cider vinegar for application on stubborn acne. Great results. One week later I started adding onion to this mixture and apply to face with a natural bristle eyeshadow brush. If it was too heated, I would apply raw honey. I have used exfoliating creams, lightening creams and had peels to clear up stubborn acne and spots from face, but there was no comparison to this garlic, onion and apple cider vinegar mixture. The acne literally walked away, the spots faded gently, but consistently and progressively. There was nothing left on my face that should not be there in the first place, it all left. In one month my face was clear radiant and rosy. I will never again waste my money on pharmaceutical expensive skin care products.
garlic capsules did wonders for my badly acne suffered skin.after all nature comes to my rescue.
I have slight pimple skin but after starting on raw garlic once a day I've began to see the zits disappear and the blemishes are slowly fading away!!! I take 1 big clove with my lunch (for the after smell you can chew on some fennel seeds it will go) and it really helps.You'll see the difference in 5-6 days. Also have started to take fresh vegetable juice on rising. Its made of carrots,white gourd,apples and a little tomato.The difference in my skin was seen in 2 days!!This juice also cleanses your colon and you know when you have a toxin free system it shows on your skin!!
I have had recurring acne for several years now. I've read about garlic here and tried it. I chop one clove of garlic and squeeze the juice on the affected area and blemishes and let it stay there overnight. The blemishes are gone in just 2 days, it will immediately flake into something dark brown, and you just have to peel it off.Same with fresh pimples. Quite painful at first, and you have to close your eyes cuz it really stings while it's on your face. also the smell might make you dizzy. After 2 or 3 minutes it will die down and the next day, just wash it off. If you're just staying home I recommend not washing it off. Garlic is fantastic!!!
garlic helps with burns or skin irritations (such as acne). Crush a few cloves and mix with a little water (just enough to make the mashed garlic stick). Add the crushed garlic to the burn or skin irritation and cover with gauze and tape down. Replace the dressing (crushed garlic and gauze) every few hours as needed. Heals like a charm!
