A new beauty trend, which sees women rubbing cloves of garlic all over their face, has taken the Internet by storm. And despite itâ€™s apparent success as a miracle spot treatment method, we canâ€™t say itâ€™s a fad weâ€™re willing to jump on board with anytime soon.
Although, if we do wake up with the mother of all spots on our chin and are in a frantic â€œWe will try anything!!â€™ mode, we may secretly give this a go.
Itâ€™s definitely more discreet than walking around the house with toothpaste smeared all over our face. However, it is a whole lot stinker.
Itâ€™s the brainchild of beauty blogger Farah D, who uploaded a video tutorial to show how garlic really can make any whitehead vanish – basically immediately.
All you need to do is unpeel a clove of garlic and then apply it to the spot as if it was a normal spot cream.
It sounds icky and might send your gag reflexes into overdrive but itâ€™s actually an age-old DIY beauty treatment. Other similar methods include an egg white face mask and using a combo of baking soda and vinegar to help skin clear up – and compared with those, garlic doesnâ€™t seem so bad.
Itâ€™s just a shame itâ€™s so stinky.
