Neem Shower

Suffering from dandruff, oily scalp, lies in hair, acne scars – take neem shower. Boil handful of neem leaves in water till water turns greenish. Bathe with this water for couple of days.

The anti-bacterial properties of neem help in treating the various wounds, respiratory disorders among others.

The Sanskrit name of neem tree is Arishtha meaning ‘reliever of sickness’ and hence is considered as Sarbaroganibarini. The tree is still regarded as ‘village dispensary’ in India.


The Mud Bath

After applying various beauty creams on my oily skin, I switched to Multani Mitti (fullers earth) after recommendation from our maid. She insisted that I try Multani Mitti regularly and not use any chemical based cream for a month. And it worked! The very application of Multani Mitti made my skin soft and helped remove oil from my T-zone. Various benefits of Multani Mitti are:

  • Removes excess sebum and oil
  • Deep cleanses skin removing dirt, sweat and impurities
  • Evens out skin tone and brightens complexion
  • Facilitates blood circulation, leading to glowing skin
  • Treats tanning and pigmentation
  • Fights whiteheads/blackheads, acne and pimples

Application of Multani Mitti

Mix multani mitti, rose water, few drop of lemon and mix it till it is semi-liquid.Try applying this magical mud on your entire body for 20 to 30 minutes, and then bathe. Notice your soft skin.
