Skin is the largest organ of our body and our outer beauty is a reflection of our inner health.
Acne (medically known as acne vulgaris) is a skin disease involving sebaceous glands (i.e. oil glands) at the base of the hair follicles. It’s the most distressing problem in teenagers which can also lead to depression and lack of self-confidence. Our skin has pores which are connected to the oil gland through follicles. The sebaceous gland produces sebum (oily liquid) which carries the dead skin cells to the surface of our skin through follicles. When these pores get blocked, the oil gets accumulated under the skin leading to a red bump i.e. acne.
Okay! Enough of my acne speech. I know you want me to come straight to the point. Right?
So let me tell you some benefits of cumin seeds (i.e. jeera) for your skin -
Jeera is a magical spice for our skin. If you are having acne problem then jeera might do wonders for you. Acne problem arises due to accumulation of toxins in your body. Jeera helps to remove those toxin from your body because of these components—cuminaldehyde, thymol and phosphorus which are good detoxifying agents. These soldiers help to remove toxins through excretory system instead of excreting through skin.
Just like consuming jeera internally, you may wish to apply it externally as well if you already have a boil. Take a 3-4teaspoon of cumin/jeera powder and dry roast it. Make a thin paste with rose water or plain water and apply it on your boil. It will help to remove all the puss from the boil. Apply it for 4days.
