Beetroot face mask
We know that beetroot is available throughout the year in many places and it isn’t seasonal, but that doesn’t make it any less beneficial for your skin. Beetroot juice is anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial in nature, so it will unclog your pores and helps reduce acne scars. The lactic acid in yogurt will maintain your skin’s pH balance, thus preventing acne.
Take 2 tablespoons of beetroot juice and mix with 1 tablespoon of yoghurt. Massage it onto your face and let it dry. Wash it off with cold water.
Do this once a week to keep your skin in good health.
