3 Amazing Radish Face Masks For Clear Skin!

Subscribe to Boldsky

Radish is not exactly our favourite vegetable as far as vegetables go. It has a non-appetizing colour, no matter how you cook it, it has a bland taste to it and the pungent smell is something we can do without. And like the grumpy kid, we ate it anyway!

Why you ask? Because eliminating radish also known as mooli is like denying your body a host of powerful vitamins and minerals.

And when it comes to beauty it can pretty much transform your skin.

Radish is packed with vitamins A, C and K that together form a powerful antioxidant, which works to repair damaged skin cells and promotes skin regeneration.

Vitamin C, zinc and phosphorous found in radish hydrates the skin, keeping it supple, smooth and fresh.

Rich fibres present in mooli flush out the harmful toxins, which in turn help clear the skin out.

With so many benefits in store it would be unwise not to include this hitherto underestimated radish in your beauty regimen. So, here are 3 amazing DIY radish face masks that will give a clear skin!

De-tanning Mask
Radish has an ample amount of vitamin C, which stifles melanin production, reducing pigmentation and removing tan.
