How To Use Ghee In Your Beauty Regime

Ghee, the traditional Indian butter in great for health and falls under healthy, essential fats that one should definitely consume. Other butters increase unhealthy cholesterol levels, while ghee lowers the unhealthy cholesterol levels. It is rich in vitamins A, D, K2, E and anti-oxidants.

Ghee is often misunderstood for increasing weight, but instead it is full of fatty acids that are absorbed directly by our body and burnt to produce energy. If you consume ghee in controlled small portions, it will help you lose weight.

But this is not it, ghee is also great for beauty, please take note that I am here talking about non processed, home prepared ghee, not the ones which are sold commercially and are heavily processed.

Ghee locks moisture in your skin, and prevent it from getting dry & imparts glow. It also is beneficial in curing chapped lips. It is a rare known fact that ghee also reduces dark circles when applied daily before going to bed. It also is used in hair treatment for coarse dry hair including split ends. Ghee is like a power packed food that not only is beneficial when consumed orally but is also great when applied topically.
