If you have sensitive skin, fennel is extremely effective in reducing redness and irritation. It can also help to minimise the sun damage. Fennel is also a natural antiseptic, and is great for oily and acne prone skin types as it helps to remove dirt and bacteria which cause breakouts. The vitamin A, C and E content fights wrinkles and removes dark spots and pigmentation.
The best way to use fennel is to soak one teaspoon of fennel seeds in a cup of water and use it as a face spritzer.
For the face mask, mix
- 1 tablespoon of fennel seeds
- 2 tablespoons of oats
- a dash of water
Mix well and apply to cleansed skin with gentle pressure of your fingertips.
