I had been swimming in an outdoor pool last summer and developed some freckles on my face. When winter comes, my tan starting to fade, and the patches become more visible. Everyone loves beauty. I want to get rid of the freckles.
Clove oil helps to lighten and remove the marks—clearing out the skin. Clove oil has stimulating properties to exfoliates dead skin and increases blood flow to help revive the youthfulness of your skin. The oil can also remove skin tags, pimples, and some skin problems.
Once every morning, I clean my face with soap, using a face brush to exfoliate the dead skin and wash with warm water to open up the pores. While my face is still wet, I apply a mixture of a drop each of clove oil and apple cider vinegar (as an acid peel) on my face and leave it on throughout the day. In the evening, again, I wash my face with soap and put on some serum for dry skin (any brand will do); let the skin breathe. After a week, the dark patches are fading away, and the skin is nice and smooth.
When I first used the oil, it has a stinging sensation. Since it is an anti-bacteria substance, I believe the burning feeling is, the clove oil is doing its magic— clearing out the bacteria. The stinging sensation diminishes on each application as the oil works on each layer of the skin. Soon, there is no more pain.
Clove oil not only helps put your skin back to a healthy condition, but it also has other incredible health benefits. Such as using the oil as a mouth wash and a remedy for toothache. I put a drop of clove oil on my neem toothpaste and brush away. The mixture got rid of my plagues, leaving my teeth clean and my breath fresh. Neem also has antioxidant action. Maybe we can talk about it on my future blog.
Excessive consumption of anything can also lead to ill health. Always research your topic in depth. exercise your intuition and common sense. But most important is to know when to stop using the product.
Hope you enjoy my blog, thanks for reading.
