Guava leaves have immense beauty benefits. They are a cost-effective way to improve your complexion and address all your skincare issues at once. You won’t be buying fancy creams after trying this.
Beauty benefits of guava leaves:
Makes dark spots disappear
Rich in Vitamin B, the leaves of the superfruit ‘guava’ lighten your dark spots, making your skin tone even.
If you fret most about those wrinkles slowly getting the better of your face, just get rid of those anti-wrinkle creams first, and start the guava leaves therapy instead. It eliminates free radicals from your body and firms up your skin.
Eliminates acne forever
Guava leaves are a natural cure for acne and other breakouts on your skin owing to their antibacterial properties. They keep the bacteria causing zits and pimples in check, making your skin spot-free and your complexion glowing. Also it soothes your skin due to its anti-inflammatory qualities, thus staving off skin irritation and rashes.
How to use guava leaves for a bright and spot-free skin
Take a handful of dried guava leaves and crush them into tiny bits and pour them into a pot of boiling water. Allow the guava leaves to boil for as long as the leaves are fully soggy and the water a muddy brown. Take it off the gas. Allow the mix to thoroughly cool, before straining the water into an airtight glass bottle.
To use it, soak a cotton ball in the liquid and massage it gently on your face. Let it dry for about 15 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Repeat this ritual twice a week, for at least a month to get best results.
