Natural beauty, the ginger anti-aging face mask

Ginger gives cosmetics a powerful anti-aging action, useful for counteracting the damage of UV rays, wrinkles, dark spots and dry skin without tone. Ginger also helps with oily and acne-prone skin

Today we will see how to make at home a face mask with an anti-aging action, useful for counteracting the damage of the sun's rays such as dark spots, dry and toneless skin and wrinkles. Not only that, the mask is also useful in case of oily skin with blemishes. In fact, the main ingredient of this beauty treatment is ginger, with a powerful anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and anti-aging action, but let's try to understand better on the basis of scientific research.

Ginger as a cosmetic, what science says

Ginger is characterized by high anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-free radical properties [1]. Its topical application, thanks to these effects, proves useful in counteracting the aging processes affecting the skin [2]. Not only that, ginger, always used externally, inhibits the enzyme elastase, in turn responsible for the degradation of elastin, a protein that guarantees elasticity to the skin [3]. Hence, ginger helps counteract dry and inelastic skin caused by UV rays and aging processes and helps prevent and reduce the formation of wrinkles [3]. Finally, ginger is also characterized by an antimicrobial action useful in case of acne [4].

DIY anti-aging and anti-dark spot ginger masks

Here are some ideas for homemade ginger-based masks, useful to brighten the complexion, give elasticity to the skin and counteract wrinkles and signs of fatigue. In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons of thick yogurt, such as Greek yogurt, which improves skin elasticity and hydration, 1 teaspoon of ginger powder and 1 teaspoon of honey, which has a rejuvenating action [5]. Apply to a cleansed face for 10 minutes, then rinse and continue with your treatment. You may experience a slight redness due to the action of the ginger, but this should pass quickly. In any case, a test on a small portion of the skin is recommended to verify that there are no excessive reactions due to the person's sensitivity.

Alternatively, if you have an apple at home that no one eats anymore, here's another idea for making a face mask with a fortified anti-aging action. Wash the apple well and remove the core. Blend the apple to obtain a puree and add a teaspoon of ginger powder. You can add a teaspoon of yogurt if the mask doesn't feel like the right consistency. Apply to a cleansed face for 10 minutes, then rinse and continue with your treatment.

DIY ginger mask against acne and blemishes

If you have oily and acne-prone skin you can use the synergy between ginger, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, and cucumber, soothing and refreshing. Blend until smooth a 4-5 cm long piece of cucumber with a slice of ginger.

Then add two tablespoons of Greek yogurt, mix and apply on clean face for 10 minutes, then rinse and continue with your treatment.
