Recently we discussed the use of onions for the treatment of various diseases. But the healing properties of the benefits of this plant are not limited. Onions are also used for skin and hair care.
Onions against freckles
Actually, freckles are cute. But if you don’t like them, a simple remedy using onion juice will help lighten them. Take equally (for example, 1 tablespoon) of fresh onion juice, honey and apple cider vinegar (6%). Mix the ingredients well and rub the skin with the mixture 5-6 times a day. Important! Before using the product, make sure that you are not allergic to honey.
You can make a whitening mask from 0.5 cups of sour milk, 1 teaspoon of grated onion, 0.5 teaspoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of starch. Mix until a homogeneous mixture is obtained, apply to the skin with freckles, leave for 20 minutes, then rinse with cool water. After applying the mask, apply a nourishing cream to the skin. Use 2-3 times a week.
Onions against acne
Here the recipe is quite simple: prepare the onion juice and wipe the problem areas of the skin with it 2-3 times a day. Repeat the procedure until you get rid of acne.
Onion against hair loss
If you notice that your hair has started to fall out, use a recipe that will help stop this process.
Mix onion juice and cognac in equal parts. Separately prepare a decoction of burdock roots: 1.5 tsp. chopped dry roots pour a glass of boiling water, cook for 10 minutes in a boiling water bath, strain. Add the broth to the onion-brandy mixture (for 1 part of the mixture — 6 parts of the broth), mix thoroughly. Rub the resulting product into the scalp, wrap the head with a towel and leave for 2 hours, then rinse the hair well with a mild shampoo. Repeat the procedure daily for a month.
Onion juice will help stop baldness. To do this, mix onion juice (preferably red varieties), lemon juice and honey in equal parts; rub the resulting mixture into the scalp on problem areas. Leave the product on for 1 hour, then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Repeat daily for 15-30 days.
Onion against dandruff
Mix 1 tablespoon of onion juice, lemon juice and burdock oil, add 1 raw egg yolk. Rub the mixture into the scalp, wrap the head with a towel and leave the mask on for 2 hours. Wash off with baby soap, then preferably rinse the hair with an infusion of nettle or birch leaves. Repeat 1 time a week until the dandruff disappears. This mask also helps to strengthen the hair and stop it falling out.
If you don’t want to mess with masks, you can just rub onion juice or chopped onion into the scalp. This procedure is performed 1-2 times a week. This simple remedy not only eliminates dandruff, but also strengthens the hair, stimulates its growth.
Onions against calluses and rough skin
If the skin on the heels is rough, such an onion compress will also help. Grate the onion on a fine grater, mix the resulting gruel with honey (1:1). In the evening, apply the mixture to roughened skin, cover with gauze or cloth, and bandage. In the morning, remove the bandage, gently remove the softened keratinized layer of skin and lubricate the heels with a nourishing foot cream.
In the same way, you can get rid of dry corns. Another way: bake a small onion, cut it, make an incision on a dry corn, tie it. This procedure is also performed in the evening, before going to bed. In the morning, you need to remove the bandage, steam the skin and carefully remove the corn.
