If you’re looking for some skincare ingredients which will get your skin into gear this autumn, spare a few moments on the incredible skin benefits of lemongrass.

Lemongrass according to LiveStrong is an herb native to India and Sri Lanka. It is characterized by tall striped leaves, jagged edges and a sharp, lemony scent. Lemongrass is used in soups, sauces and marinades for meats and seafood. The herb also acts as a mosquito repellent. In addition, the application or ingestion of lemongrass can help alleviate various skin issues, from large pores to fungal infections. As with any medical condition, consult your doctor if skin problems become serious.

Beneficial Properties

Lemongrass is an anti-microbial and anti-bacterial herb. This means it will help limit bacterial or microbial growth on the skin. It can help ward off skin infections as well as lessen skin issues caused by bacterial infections, such as folliculitis and cellulitis. Lemongrass is also fungicidal, which means it helps cure fungus infections on the skin. The herb also acts as an astringent, which constricts the skin. This helps to minimize pores, limit the secretions of oil and provide a temporary skin-firming treatment.

Lemongrass can be made into a tea using dried or fresh lemongrass leaves, as well as the bark and seeds. However, the amounts for each vary. For fresh lemongrass tea, use 1/4 cup of fresh leaves, according to the Ageless website. To make tea with dried lemon grass, use two teaspoons. Use two teaspoons of seeds and one tablespoon of bark. For any of these lemongrass variations, pour one cup of boiling water over the material and allow it to steep for five minutes. Then strain out the lemongrass and drink the liquid.
