We spend a lot of money on beauty products to improve the look and health of our skin. However, the secret to beautiful skin may be lurking in your kitchen cabinets? When it comes to skin health, what you put into your body is sometimes even more important than what you put onto it. Below is a list of herbs and spices that can give your skin a healthier glow just by spicing up your diet.

Pepper

Spicy peppers, such as chili and cayenne, are packed with vitamins A and C, which are effective free radical neutralizers. And for a further boost, you can even make a simple at-home paste, using peppers and olive oil, which can act as a wonderful all-natural exfoliant.

Cinnamon

Cinnamon increases your blood circulation, which will help your skin repair itself. Moreover,  cinnamon give you a blast of antioxidants, which will visibly reverse the signs of aging.

Sesame Seeds

A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, sesame seeds are an excellent way to fight free radicals in your body and improve your overall skin health. Aditionally, they help to preserve the collagen that your body naturally produces, giving your skin greater elasticity.

Fennel

Fennel is wonderful for sensitive skin, as it helps to get rid of redness and irritation. Fennel can also  help to fortify your skin against dangerous UV rays.

Turmeric

This classic Indian spice can help to reduce irritation and redness, and it’s also a wonderful all-natural acne fighter. Turmeric can also be used externally as well. Simply add some to raw milk and water to create an all-natural, wrinkle-reducing paste.

Garlic Powder

One of the most common food ingredients is also one of the most versatile skincare boosters. Not only is garlic great at fighting acne and irritation, but it is also effective at reducing skin-damaging free radicals. Additionally, garlic has antifungal properties that can help you battle certain skin conditions.

Herbs and spices have been used for centuries to help to improve skin health.  The next time your skin is looking for a booster, reach into you kitchen cabinet a spice instead of making a trip to the beauty boutique.
