The Four Skin-Boosting Benefits of Ginger
Relieve and Restore Today ...
When you hear the word "ginger," what do you think of?
Your favorite spice? Dessert? Soda? The holidays?
Whatever it may be, you're right.
That’s because ginger has been used for thousands of years as a natural remedy for everything from stomach pain to common cold relief. (1)
But what many people don’t realize is that ginger has also been used for centuries for cosmetic purposes, and is a miracle remedy for your skin. (2)
In this blog we talk about four amazing skin-boosting benefits of ginger root, and where you can find this incredible natural remedy today!
WHAT IS GINGER
Ginger is a plant that derives from Southeast Asia, and is now grown throughout the world.
It's part of the same health-boosting family of seasonings as galangal, turmeric, and cardamom, and is known for its incredible versatility and endless uses. (3)
Ginger is processed fresh, dried, ground, blended -- basically any way you can think of! It's also featured in supplements and a variety of foods, drinks, and herbal teas.
But what many people don’t know is that ginger root is loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fatty acids, and bioactive compounds that offer your skin loads of benefits. (4)
How, you may ask?
Let's dive in and find out.
The main compound in ginger that gives it its health-boosting strength is gingerol. (1)
Gingerol contains an amazing array of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant abilities, and is proven to reduce oxidative stress - a term for the dangerous buildup of free radicals that causes dangerous diseases like cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's. (5)
Ginger also slows down your skin’s natural breakdown of collagen, which allows you to have smoother, more youthful skin. (6)
FUN FACT: Ginger root contains essential oil within the plant, making it a natural fit for its use in cosmetics! (7)
Ginger contains a host of healthy natural oils that combine to soothe aches and pains, and provide relief to inflamed skin. (8)
In short, ginger provides your body the tools it needs to heal your skin. (6)
Ginger is a proven skin rejuvenator, and that’s because it puts the brakes on the breakdown of collagen. (9)
It also controls enzymes that try to hasten the aging process by reducing cellulite, which can cause skin puffiness. (10)
FUN FACT: In addition to causing your skin to look younger, ginger can lower cholesterol, reduce your cancer risk, and decrease joint pain! (4)
Ginger is also great at lessening the appearance and pain of acne by balancing your body's natural oil and controlling pore size and exposure. (11)
It contains several vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin C, which smooths out acne scars and evens out skin. (12)
GREAT FOR YOUR SCALP
It's easy to forget about the skin on top of your head when creating a skincare regiment, but it's important to remember that your scalp needs love too.
And ginger will provide it.
Ginger aids in your body's natural circulation, and actually stimulates the growth of hair follicles on your head. (13)
The chemical compounds in ginger will also make the hair you already have on your head (and even face!) stronger too. (14)
Ginger also reduces levels of yeast and bacteria on the surface of your head, which makes it a great remedy for dandruff. (16)
And because underlying scalp conditions can cause hair loss, the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger will naturally restore your hair health just by using it!
REPAIRS SKIN STRUCTURE
Not only does reducing the breakdown of collagen naturally improve your skin's structure and elasticity, but ginger increases your natural blood flow, which improves the texture and appearance of your skin. (17)
Healthy blood flow protects your skin and nourishes your epidermis by carrying the oxygen and nutrients your skin needs throughout your body.
Not only that, but a healthy blood flow will flush out all the nasty bacteria and cells you don't want - those pesky cells that cause aging and acne. (18)
FUN FACT: Ginger contains many of the same benefits of physical exercise by boosting circulation and carrying oxygen to the cells that need it. (19)
Furthermore, better circulation will increase cellular turnover, which means getting rid of old and dying cells, and replacing them with newer ones that are ready to protect you. (20)
Oxygen can also cause your body to become more vital, allowing it to fight off bacteria quicker and provide you the smooth, radiant skin you want. (21)
Although many products claim to use ginger, most contain harsh and dangerous chemicals that do more harm than good.
