Huh? Girls on Instagram are rubbing GARLIC all over their faces

Our mothers and grandmothers have fed us many wives' tales about getting rid of spots over the years, but we never heard this one before.

In Ireland, Sudocreme seems to top the charts for any nasty breakouts – but now, girls all over Instagram and putting garlic on their faces. Yep, garlic. And it seems to work rather well.


GET RID OF PIMPLES OVER NIGHT! GARLIC will flatten your pimple and get rid of it overnight, if not instantly! Take a clove of garlic and make some cuts in it to extract some garlic juice RUB the garlic on any pimples that you may have If you have a whitehead like me – itll be gone INSTANTLY and wont come back If you have a larger pimple beneath the surface, rub the garlic on it and leave it on over night. Youll wake up with it GONE! Try this out.. it REALLY works to flatten the pimple and make sure it doesn't come back! #hudabeauty #wakeupandmakeup #vegas_nay #diy #makegirlz #byefeliciapimple *disclaimer – if you have sensitive skin, do a test patch first. If it starts to string or you feel discomfort rinse off immediately

According to beauty vlogger Farah Dhukhai, all you need to do is make a few cuts on the garlic to get the juices flowing and then just rub on the affected area.

Apparently, the spot can go almost instantly, and if you've suffered from skin problems you'll know that no spot will EVER go away instantly.

We'll BRB, just going to rub garlic on our faces.
