You may know that guava fruit is classified as a superfood, due to its health benefits (having four times more vitamin C than an orange and ten times more vitamin A than a lemon). But, did you know that its leaves are even powerful than the fruit itself? I didn’t, until reading it in one of my books. I have spent a month, researching, reading stories and articles, different book and found out that all them say same things. I bought dried guava leaves from the Internet (£4.49 for 100g).

Creams and masks won’t help you much; most of them are just good presented marketing products.
