While cooking cornish game hen with fresh ginger root, I wondered what to do with all the excess ginger. Ginger is so versatile that you can store it in the freezer for a year until you need to use it again!
OR you can put it on your face!
In my interview with Lorraine Massey, I asked her what her favorite natural recipe was. She named one ingredient in her arsenal. Ginger! She suggested that you can use actual ginger root to remove makeup.
I grate the root into a bowl until I got about a tablespoon of pulp and juice. I used a cotton swab to wipe my face down. The ginger removed the makeup very efficiently, but the benefits don’t stop there.
Ginger has a warming effect on the skin. Oh, you’re gonna feel it. Your face will be spicy! That warming effect is like running around the block and sweating the toxins out. It also has a antiseptic quality that kill bacteria in the skin. If you’re eating ginger, it definitely settles your stomach. That’s why it’s in so many hot teas.
So put some on your face sometime! It’s a natural cleanser that will leave you feeling incredibly invigorated.
