In my family, beets have been a part of our lives since childhood. We use beets in soups, salads, for canning, etc. However, believe it or not, beets even have a much larger range of applications. Throughout the centuries our great-great-grandmothers used beets to improve their complexion (rubbing their cheeks with slices of fresh beets). It really works well as a natural blush… providing natural skin radiance. Beet facial masks are not well known.
However, beets are exceptional for both your body and skin. Due to the great number of anthocyanins contained in beets, their use has a positive impact on the condition of skin and hair. Beets improve complexion, reduce inflammation, help with dry skin, reduces freckles and age spots and makes your skin younger looking. This amazing root rejuvenates the skin and helps get rid of acne. Beets can even be used for hair; they help get rid of dandruff and make your hair shinier and alive.
