Fenugreek seeds might be in your spice rack right now, but did you know they have multiple uses beyond the kitchen? And one of the best ways to use them is to whip up a fenugreek seed face mask.
These healing seeds can be used for every skin type, from acne-prone to aging, hyperpigmented to oily. Praised for their anti-inflammatory abilities, fenugreek seeds are rich in niacin, calcium, iron, and vitamin A. If you suffer from breakouts, you’ll especially love that they reduce oil production, and they’re natural exfoliants too.
The best thing about fenugreek seeds is that you don’t need to add a long grocery list of ingredients to them in order to reap their benefits.
Honey, which is both a humectant and antibacterial, is the perfect addition to this prized Indian spice. Together they make a wonderful face mask which will leave your skin glowing and healthy.
