Probably the most underrated ingredients to exploit for those beauty DIYs, there’s no denying that mint, or pudina, is a popular ingredient in most herbal face washes, shampoos and conditioners.

And for good reason! It’s known for its many therapeutic properties, you’re going to want this magic ingredient in your closet to treat everything from mosquito bites, acne, and dry skin to blackheads, and that tan.

What’s more, mint’s cooling effect is just the thing you need to soothe your nerves on a particularly stressful day, even if your skin isn’t acting up.
So let’s get grinding, shall we?
