LICORICE FOR DEPIGMENTATION

India Today - - BEAUTY -

Com­monly known as mulethi, licorice has a mild smoothen­ing and bright­en­ing ac­tion that helps in re­duc­ing hy­per pig­men­ta­tion and sun dam­age. Lic­ochal­cone A, an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent in licorice acts as a shield and pro­tects the skin from ul­tra­vi­o­let rays and blocks melanin pro­duc­tion. The root ex­tracts are po­tent for red, acne-prone skin and for dull and de­hy­drated skin.

How to use 1tbsp licorice pow­der and 1 tsp oats pow­der; make a paste with milk for oily skin and with rose­wa­ter for dry skin.
