When it comes to the most troubling skin types, oily and acne-prone skin are at the very top. Whether it's producing excessive sebum, constant breakouts, clogged pores or even spots and blemishes, these skin types can lead to a plethora of other skin issues. And if you're someone who's tried and tested everything and still can't seem to figure out what to do, here's a natural ingredient that will come to your rescue. We're talking about neem. Neem can work wonders for your skin
Make a DIY neem mask for your face and you'll notice just how much it can benefit your skin. The ingredients you'll need are stalks of neem leaves (including the stem) and aloe vera gel. Now, you can either get the gel from outside or if you have an aloe plant at home, just cut off a leaf and scoop up the gel from inside.
Combine these two ingredients together and put them in your blender. Blend them until they form a thick and coarse paste. You can also use a pestle and mortar beforehand so that the ingredients are a little crushed up before you blend them. Once the paste is ready, apply it to your face and leave it on for about 30 minutes. Rinse your face off with cold water. Opt for this mask once a week for about a month and you'll notice a difference.
It's also important to remember that neem is a very strong ingredient and may not suit your skin. So, remember to do a patch test before you apply this to your face. Stay tuned for more updates.
