It tastes great, no denying that – but the overbearing smell of this vegetable… Well, let’s say we love our garlic breads, but if we were to smear this all over our face and hair? That’s hard to digest! The allicin present in garlic has antifungal properties, which can treat those pimples that give you sleepless nights. Applying garlic juice on your face can even prevent acne altogether. And if that wasn’t convincing enough, a facemask with garlic, honey, lemon and oatmeal helps in blackhead and whitehead removal too.
