Women Are Rubbing Garlic Over Their Faces In The Name Of Beauty

A new beauty trend, which sees women rubbing cloves of garlic all over their face, has taken the Internet by storm. And despite it’s apparent success as a miracle spot treatment method, we can’t say it’s a fad we’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 “We will try anything!!’ mode, we may secretly give this a go. 

It’s definitely more discreet than walking around the house with toothpaste smeared all over our face. However, it is a whole lot stinker. 

It’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 it’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 doesn’t seem so bad. 

It’s just a shame it’s so stinky.
