The COVID-19 menace had made it impossible for people to opt out for a year and hence, apart from the skincare products on the market, a lot of people switched to homemade packs and treatments. This was not only the reason for being free, but the natural and chemical ingredients also bring you many benefits during summers.
The summers in India are not going to subside anyway and this scorching heat does not have any effect on the skin like tanning, rashes, pimples and whatnot. So, here we are with two go-to kitchen ingredients that can work wonders to give you a beautiful skin amid hot weather. We are talking about Aloe Vera and Neem and before we talk about their health benefits, let us have a look at their nutritional properties.
Aloe vera- It contains 75 potentially active components: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acid and amino acids. It contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are antioxidants.
Azadirachta indica- Meanwhile, neem, especially in the oil format, contains fatty acids (EFAs) and is high on the disinfectant portion.
health and skin benefits
Neem helps in clearing our bacteria and germs that cause acne and breakouts on the skin. The good acids present in aloe vera help in skin re-generation and overall smoothness. When combined, these magical ingredients unclog pores, removing blackheads and whiteheads without drying out skin or leaving flaky pores behind. With prolonged use, the skin becomes radiant, even toned and smooth.
The antioxidant properties of aloe vera reverse the effects of sun burn and tan. Neem helps in removing the dirt accumulated on the skin due to sweat and grime and is anti-inflammatory. Hence provides permanent protection from environmental damage, especially when used in everyday skin/hygiene products like body wash.
works as a rejuvenator
Collagen from EFAs in neem and antioxidants in aloe vera help restore skin elasticity, improve skin texture and appearance, restore skin vitality and help plumping skin.
hydrate your skin
Hydration without any oily finish is always the most important thing for skin care in summers. Aloe vera and neem also accomplish this task. It moisturizes and refreshes the skin, especially when used before or during daily bath.
