Cow’s ghee might be an integral part of every Indian household but most of us fear it assuming that it will lead to weight gain.  Truth be told—when consumed in the right quantity, ghee can actually be beneficial for your body.

While it is suggested that you rely on cow’s ghee all year round for good skin, it is especially useful during the winters when dehydrated and irritable skin can be a major cause for concern. If you wish to opt for a natural product with intensely moisturising properties, rely on cow’s ghee that penetrates deep into your skin to replenish the lost moisture.

Split ends are a sure shot sign of dry and damaged hair. Moreover, when you treat your hair badly and use the wrong products, your hair is susceptible to breakage. This is why relying on a natural ingredient is one of the best solutions to treating split ends. Since ghee is a deeply conditioning agent and contains all the fatty acids essential for healthy hair, you need to warm ghee and apply it on the ends of your hair for best results at least twice a week.

Most of us dream of that perfect pout but chapped and dry lips often come in the way of our beauty goals. This is why massaging your lips with a dime sized amount of ghee can be a good solution to the problem. Since ghee helps in preventing discoloration as well as locks in moisture in your skin, applying it daily will help you regain your original lip colour and make it look all puckered up.

When it comes to reducing dark patches from under the eyes, ghee seems to help to a great extent. This is because this natural ingredient is rich in Vitamin A that not only protects your skin from sun damage but also repairs your skin from inside. Precisely why you must remember to apply a bit of ghee to your under eyes before going to bed every night.

Since ghee is a dairy product, it kills the bacteria that causes scalp problems and bumps in your scalp. Ghee increases blood circulation and leaves your scalp feeling cleansed and healthy. Ideally, you should massage your hair with ghee once a week before taking a shower.
