In this blog post I’ll be sharing with you all a miraculous skin care routine that will not only help you achieve clean & clear skin, free of those prolonged acne marks but also controls new acne from building up.
This skin care routine contains all natural ingredients that will be easily accessible for everyone. The hero ingredient here is Neem.
“ The anti-bacterial and anti inflammatory properties of neem help reduce acne by reducing the effects of bacteria that cause these breakouts ”
Disclaimer: Do not follow this routine if you have too many active pimples on your face. Wait for your pimples to dry out to follow the routine. Also avoid if you are intolerant to neem or any other ingredient in the routine. Also, along with following the routine try to drink adequate quantity of water as well as it is very important to keep yourself hydrated to achieve a healthy skin.
Before starting with the routine let me guide you step by step on how to prepare the main lead of our routine, the DIY Neem Toner.
Steps to prepare the Neem Toner:
Take 30-35 neem leaves and wash them in Norma water to remove any dust particles. Now take 1 glass of water in a pan, add the neem leaves and boil it until the color turns green and the water is reduced to half. Turn off the flame and let the neem water cool. Take a spray bottle and pour the neem water into it. Add equal amount of rose water to the bottle and shake and mix. Your toner is ready.
Note: This toner can only be used upto one week. After one week you’ll have to throw the leftover and prepare a new batch if you continue this routine.
Wash your face either with normal water or a very mild granule free face wash. Pat dry with a towel. Spray the neem toner on your face and let it sit on your skin and dry itself. After 15-20 mins take 1 tsp alovera gel in a bowl and add 2-3 drops of lemon to it. Massage this alovera mixture on your face for 5 mins and let it absorb on your face. You can either leave it as it is or wash your face with normal water after 20 mins.
Take 5-6 neem leaves and wash them to remove any dust or dirt particles. Take one tsp of curd. Mix both the things to form a paste. Apply this mask on your face, specially on the areas where you have dry pimples and pimple marks.
Disclaimer: Avoid touching or applying the mask on active pimples
Leave this mask on for 25 mins After 25mins spray the tulsi toner on your face to wet the mask, massage for 1 min and wash your face with normal water. Clean face with a towel and spray the toner again & let it dry without rubbing it.
Night time routine:
Take 1 tsp of coconut oil and to it add 4-5 drops of lemon and massage on your face in circular motions and upward on your cheeks for about 2-3 mins.
Note: Adding lemon drops to the coconut oil is important do not skip this step.
Now take a hand towel and dip it into warm water. Place this wet towel on your face (make sure it’s bearable and not too hot) Let the towel sit on your face for 5-6 mins. Remove the towel and clean your face with the outer part of the towel. Spray the neem toner on your face and go to bed.
Now, comes the most important step of this routine:
Neem garam paani
Make sure you drink neem garam paani either in the morning or before sleeping everyday till 7 days. This is the most important part of the routine.
How To make neem garam paani:
Take 10 clean neem leaves and wash them thoroughly to remove any dust or dirt from it.
Now take 2 small cups of water in a pan, to it add the leaves and let it boil until it turns half. Turn off the flame and pour your neem garam paani in a glass to it add 1 tsp of honey, stir and drink.
This rountine will give you effective results within a week but if you have dark acne marks you can repeat this routine for one more week.
