Health and beauty benefits of parsley

Beauty benefits of parsley

Cast off as just a table garnish natural beauty benefits of this herb are highly underappreciated despite the fact that many commercial products have parsley extract in their formulas. Vitamin C from parsley stimulates the production of collagen which is well known for its skin lightening properties like clearing up blemishes or maintaining good skin tone.

But why pay when you can easily make a parsley face mask from parsley juice and yogurt and apply it on the under eye region or with parsley oil for acne. You can use just parsley juice and apply it directly to the face, but not just parsley oil, because it is far too powerful and can burn the skin.

Treat bug bites and irritated skin naturally

There are many natural and safe treatments for insect bites, for example, parsley leaves contain tannins, a natural astringent that helps to reduce swelling by drawing excess fluids out of the area affected by insect bites.


Natural treatment for dark spots and skin discoloration

Hyperpigmentation is normally a result of the skin’s natural pigmentation in which specific areas of skin become darker than the normal surrounding skin. If you are facing the problems of skin discoloration, parsley may help you to get rid of it. Parsley contains a high amount of chlorophyll and vitamin K, and if you mix it with lemon juice, you are going to get the perfect solution for under-eye dark circles, discoloration around mouth and on neck.
