How to use cabbage for glowing skin

By Glowpink Staff   

Experts say that Cabbage contains “indole-3-carbonile, a powerful antioxidant that supports detoxification in the liver.” Detoxing your liver can “help to minimize toxicities that can build up in the bloodstream causing dull, blemished skin. Both green and red cabbages are good for our skin and hair.


Cabbage for pimples

If you are suffering from pimples or other skin irritations, cabbage can be the solution. All you need to do is to steam the upper leaves of cabbage and remove all the veins. Compress the leaves between a linen cloth and cotton to make them smooth and soft. Place the compress on the affected area overnight and experience spotless skin the next morning.

Cabbage to improve skin complexion

Cabbage juice is excellent for improving complexion. It has potassium in it which is instrumental in purifying your body and skin. The high levels of Vitamin A rejuvenate your tissues while sulfur helps in fighting the infection. Vitamin E is often used as an ingredient in skin care products and supplements. The ultimate result is glowing and fairer skin.

Anti-aging benefits of cabbage

Regular consumption of cabbage along with other cruciferous vegetables can provide anti-aging benefits to the skin. The rich amount of Vitamin C in this vegetable keeps the skin youthful and delays the aging process. Moreover, Vitamin A in cabbage juice works together with Vitamin D to make your skin clear and healthy. It also avoids the destruction of skin cells due to ultraviolet rays.

Cabbage cleansing properties

Cabbage juice is extremely effective in cleansing your body as cabbages are abundant in Vitamin C. If you are suffering from acne, drinking cabbage juice can help in clearing it up. Cabbage juice can also heal infected gums caused by gingivitis.

Red cabbage is enriched with anthocyanin. This chemical compound ensures a smooth blood flow through your veins. Consuming boiled red cabbage or adding it in a salad can save you from the hassle of cardiovascular diseases. Just make sure that you have it twice in a week to get the best results.
