Lemongrass, an herb native to India and Sri Lanka, has become a “superfood” in cooking and juicing. Lemongrass is also anti-bacterial, anti-microbial and anti-fungal, which can prevent skin infections of many sorts. Used as an astringent, it can constrict the skin to minimize pores and temporarily tighten skin.

Lemongrass is also an effective natural mosquito repellent.
