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.

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.


We’ve all heard of the word superfood – but rather than your carrot with a superman cape on, the term superfood simply means foods that are rich in nutrients and are particularly beneficial to our health and wellbeing.

Here are five superfoods you need in your life:

Eggs are a great source of protein, iron, zinc, vitamins and amino acids and they aren’t particularly expensive to pick up.

Not particularly good if you are planning on locking lips, garlic is jam-packed with bioactive compounds great for maintaining healthy levels of cholesterol.

Even if they weren’t a superfood we’d be munching on these anyway. They are full of dietary fibres, are low in sugar, and are full of anti-oxidants.

Dark chocolate
We couldn’t compile a list of good foods without mentioning chocolate. Now we’re not talking about the milk version, but dark chocolate that has at least 60% cocoa content is full of anti-oxidants and is lower in fat than the milk version.

Goji berries
Great for protecting the liver and improving eyesight, goji berries are anti-inflammatory and taste great in smoothies.


We Irish love our garlic cheese chips!

Here is a homemade version of the take-away favourite. Yum!

What you’ll need:

  • 2 large potatoes
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 1 handful of chives (optional)
  • 3-4 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 handfuls of grated full mature cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper

What you’ll need to do:

  1. The first thing to do is make the chips! Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the potatoes into chip shapes and place in a pan of cold water.
  3. Bring the water to the boil and then drain the chips out.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil and season, spread out onto the baking tray. Bake for 20-30 mins or until golden brown and soft in the middle.
  5. Grate the garlic cloves and stir into the mayonnaise with the parsley and lemon juice.
  6. Top the chips with the mayo, sprinkle the cheese over the chips and enjoy!
