How To Use
Now apply this face pack and leave it on for 30 minutes or until it starts to feel stretchy.
Skin type – Normal sensitive
This face pack does everything from pulling out toxins and excess sebum. This prevents the pores from getting clogged and thus prevents acne. It does give a glow to my skin. Keep in mind that there will not be much brightening effect in a single use. You can add Besan (Gram Flour) or Rice flour to get instant brightness and tan removal.
This neem face mask does help moisturise dry skin. I used this during the winters when my skin was feeling a bit stretchy and looked dull.
My skin did not break out from using this face pack. It does not irritate my sensitive skin either. But i did skip lemon juice while making this recipe. My husband does not have any problems after using exact same recipe. So i think it will suit all skin types except sensitive skin.
This simple face mask works amazing well in rejuvenating dull skin. Follow up with a sunscreen in case you are using it during the day.
Try it and let me know how it works for you.
Have a nice day. 🙂
