Licorice powder is a natural ingredient that is made from the root of the licorice plant. It is known for its anti-inflammatory, soothing, and skin-lightening properties.
For skin, Licorice powder is used to soothe irritated and inflamed skin, reduce redness, and improve the appearance of dark spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone. It can also be used as a face mask or added to other face creams, serums or lotions.
For hair, Licorice powder can be added to hair masks or used as a pre-poo treatment. It is known to improve hair growth and reduce hair fall by strengthening the hair roots and preventing hair breakage. It also helps in conditioning the hair, making it shiny and manageable.
Licorice powder can be used in combination with other natural ingredients such as turmeric powder, sandalwood powder, rosewater, and yogurt for added benefits for skin and hair. To use it, one can mix licorice powder with water, aloe vera gel or yogurt to make a paste, and then apply it to the skin or hair. Allow it to sit for 10-15 minutes before washing it off. It's always good to do a patch test before using licorice powder on the skin or hair, as some individuals may be sensitive to it.
