Garlic Treatments For Skin Problems

MD - Skin,VD & Lepxsy, M.B.B.S.
Dermatologist, Delhi
Garlic Treatments For Skin Problems

Garlic can be used for more than simple flavouring your food. Garlic has a number of health benefits and is used to treat conditions like high blood pressure, cholesterol, heart disease and even acne. The large amount of allicin and sulphur compounds in garlic give it anti fungal and anti aging properties. This promotes healthy skin and lustrous hair.

Let's take a look at how garlic can treat common skin problems. 

  1. Acne: The anti fungal properties of garlic can help remove stubborn pimples. Garlic can be used in a number of ways to treat acne. The easiest is to press a piece of freshly cut raw garlic onto the affected area. Let is release some of its juices onto the skin. Wash off after 5 minutes to see a visible reduction in inflammation. 
  2. Acne scars: Along with treating acne, garlic can also be used to reduce acne scars by enhancing blood circulation that helps regenerate new skin cells. The sulphur, zinc, calcium and vitamin E in garlic also help in the removal of dead skin cells and smooth skin tissue formation. 
  3. Blackhead removal: A paste of crushed garlic, tea tree oil, honey, oatmeal and lime juice can be used as an ex-foliating pack to remove blackheads and whiteheads. Use this mask thrice a week to get the best results. 
  4. Anti aging: Antioxidants in garlic reduce the amount of free radicals in the skin to keep it looking youthful. Sulphur also helps the body produce collagen to maintain the firmness of skin and avoid wrinkles. Garlic is also rich in poly phenols that protect the skin from environmental damage. A garlic and tomato mask can also help unclog skin and minimize pores. 
  5. Stretch marks: Allicin and sulphur present in garlic increase the elasticity of the skin and thus prevent stretch marks from occurring. If you already have stretch marks, a warm garlic oil massage can help reduce the stretch marks. 

As with any other form of treatment, garlic should be used carefully. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.

  1. Dilute garlic juice with rose water or water to prevent burning and stinging.
  2. Do not leave garlic for too long on the skin as it can cause blisters. 
  3. Fresh garlic has more anti oxidants than preserved garlic.
  4. Garlic also has blood thinning properties and hence should be avoided by pregnant women. Learn more about Healthy Pregnancy.
  5. Do a patch test before applying garlic on your face to test your skin for sensitivity towards garlic.

Thinning of hair can be due to hair fall, physical or mental stress, anaemia or nutritional deficiency or certain medical conditions like thyroid disorders, low serum ferritin etc. Take a nutritious and protein rich diet (pulses, milk products, eggs). Avoid routine application of gels or frequent blow drying of your hair. Use a sulfate free shampoo for your hair twice a week. Biotin containing hair supplements can be taken for 3-6 months.

Hi I am 25 years old I have been facing a skin problem which might be ichthyosis extremely dry and scaly skin since childhood it might be hereditary which is killing me so can you please suggest the best method to control this as I know it is non durable.

Hi, I am very happy that you have accepted the situation and have decided to face it. But ichthyosis (if the diagnosis is right) can be manged very well with ayurveda. It need not destroy your life. But unfortunately I really can not prescribe medicines for skin problems without seeing it. So please do consult. Home remedies may not produce great results but it can certainly give you some relief 1. Curry leaf powder - 1 spoon everyday 2.1 teaspoon of cows ghee - consume it daily with warm roti or with warm rice 3. Add 2 tablespoons of pure sesame oil to your bathing water and use it to wash your skin.

Taking care of your hair *Take nutritious healthy food *Have regular vigorous physical exercise so that blood circulation reaches hair follicles and nourishes the hair. *Avoid mental stress and smoking and such unhealthy habits. * Have adequate rest and timely sleep. You may have limitations because of your profession, but stick to it as far as possible. *Use warm or cold water for bath and NOT very hot water. * Hard water is harmful. Boiling will reduce hardness. * When the hair is wet, it is weaker and don't rub too much with towel. * Use wide toothed comb so that there is no pulling pressure on the hair. *Your usual hair dye has large doses of ammonia, which changes hair texture, dries out the scalp and almost leads to hair fall

It is common to get sun burn on prolong exposure to uv rays. Always prevention is better than cure. I suggest avoid sun exposure between 10 a. M. And 4 p. M. Wear tightly woven clothing that covers you, including your arms and legs. Consider wearing clothing or outdoor gear specially designed to provide sun protection. No matter what your skin type is, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an spf of 15 or greater. Wear sunglasses when outdoors. Homoeopathy recommendation: apply berberis aquifolium-q externally to your face, silicea 6x 4 tab/daily thrice for a month, acid nitric 30- 6 pills/daily thrice for a month.

Drinking at least between 8/ 10 glasses of water every day is another great way to prevent hair loss. Water helps wash off toxins from your body. These toxins could be a major reason for hair loss. Drink distilled water or at least filtered water that does not contain chlorine, lead, etc. For healthy hair.
