June 7, 2021 (IANSlife) Tired of investing in expensive skin and body care products that assure results but fail to give any? Your answer lies in simple, inexpensive natural ingredients which pack a host of benefits and aren’t going to load your skin with chemicals.
Summers in India are getting hotter with each passing year and the monsoons are almost upon us in some ways. The heat causes our skin to become rough and tanned, the sweat and grime clogs pores, ultimately resulting in an uneven skin tone. Before you purchase your next ‘expensive-so-must-be-great’ product, it's time to check out the kitchen garden for some humble Neem and Aloe Vera.
Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids and amino acids. It contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are antioxidants. So basically, it packs in the power of the multiple serums and masks we use into one refreshing gel. Neem, especially in the oil format contains fatty acids (EFA) and is high on the disinfection quotient.
A combination of the two can help with a myriad of skin issues that concern us during these months.
Now that you know the benefits, it’s time to incorporate these humble ingredients. If you don’t have them readily available, do consider planting them in pots or seek out every day, easy-to-use products like the Vivel Neem Oil and Aloe Vera body wash online or instore.
