Benefits Of Mint in Cosmetics & 3 Ways To Use It
What is Mint good for?
Mint is a wonderful herb that is popularly used in teas and drinks like lemonade or flavored water. Known for its fragrance and flavor, there is more to this powerful herb than meets the eye. The wonderful properties of mint pack quite a punch when it comes to beauty care with a wide range of benefits for both skin and hair.
Mint has astringent properties which makes it a great toner for skin. It has a high content of phosphorus, vitamin C, and iron which all work together to liven your skin cells and tighten them. Mint is a great exfoliator. It removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores of dirt, bacteria, and excess oil which helps get rid of blackheads. This also helps ensure cleaner skin with tighter pores as it prevents blackheads from clogging pores while tightening them.
