Beetroot is a magical and extraordinary vegetable when it comes to beauty and health. You can try out many beetroot skin care regimen that will help to improve the health of your skin.
As a woman and a dermatologist, my skin is a very important aspect of who I am and how people see me. So when it comes to taking care of the skin I always advise my clients to buy products that are natural with no chemicals that could hurt their skin. Applying face masks made from fruits and vegetables is something I have been doing for a while now and I have seen positive results. For a month now I have been applying beetroot on my face as part of my skin care regimen with a lot of success.
Here are some of the amazing ways you can use beetroot as part of your beetroot skin care regimen.
As a lip and cheeks tint
This is an easy and creative way to give your lips and cheeks a natural longer-lasting pink flash with beetroot juice. Simply take 2 beetroots and juice them in a blender or food processor to make a puree. Mix the beet juice and coconut oil or any other heavy oil, add some lemon juice to preserve its freshness and colour then put the mixture in a container. Dab some on your lips and cheeks to give you a natural pink flush that will last for hours. You can also take some beet juice chill it in the fridge for 15 minutes then rub it on your lips before going to bed. In the morning you will have perfectly pink lips.
As a natural facial toner
Toners are meant to cleanse your skin and reduce your pores. Beetroot is a good natural facial toner that will reduce your age spots and freckles and also tighten your skin elasticity. Blend 1 beetroot, ½ cup cabbage chopped, and ¼ cup water. Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and let it freeze. Rub a frozen cube on your face to give you a natural pinkish glow. You can also mix ½ cup green tea, ½ cup of the water that boiled beets and let it cool. Soak a piece of cotton in the mixture and apply it on your face.
As a face mask
Beetroot has antioxidants that help to remove skin impurities and signs of aging. By applying it on your face you can remove fine lines and acne. You can make beetroot facial masks by mixing beetroot with honey, coconut oil, and oatmeal but don’t leave it on your face for too long. You may end up with a red face rather than a subtle pink glow. You can also mix beetroot powder with any clay facial mask and apply it on your face as usual.
As a soothing eye pack
If you have dark circles under your eyes, beetroot can help remove them and also the puffiness in your eyes. Simply mix 1 tsp. of beetroot juice and a few drops of almond oil. Massage it under your eye and leave it overnight. To lighten the dark circles repeat this process daily before you go to bed. You can also mix equal amounts of beetroot and tomato juice and apply on the dark circles and with time the circles get lighter.
As a natural hair dye
If you like to dye your hair red you can use beetroot to get a lovely reddish tint on your hair with no chemicals or damage to your hair. Mix ½ cup beetroot powder with 1 cup boiled water and apply it once it’s at room temperature. For a more intense colour add more beetroot powder. Lighter hair tends to give stronger results. Leave it for between 3-4 hours and if you shampoo afterward it will fade faster.
