Pollution, dust, bad eating habits, stress and more take a toll on us. They affect our body and the most common problem we face is: skin issues. Pimples, skin rashes, redness, blackheads, dead, dull and dry skin are perennial problems.Today, we don’t really have time to go out to a salon and spend hours to pamper ourselves. So, why not resort to natural things at home? Rose, saffron and neem if incorporated in our beauty regime can help us get rid of multiple skin problems.
Rose Refreshes skin
It not only smells good but instantly refreshes our skin. Be it a late night party or just insomnia, many of us wake up with puffy eyes. Use rose water—either the one available in the market or you can make your own by simply boiling rose petals in water until it leaves its colour to the water and then filtering the residue. Spray it all over your face in the morning and your face will remain fresh and hydrated all day long.
It also acts as a natural cleanser. Dab rose water on to cotton and clean your skin daily for a natural beauty. It takes out all the germs, dust, pollution and particles that enter the skin through open pores. It contains antioxidants that soothe the skin and maintain the PH balance.
Saffron lightens blemishes
It is known for its skin-lightening properties. Popularly known as kesar, it is enriched with vitamin A, B and C that help promote cell formation, thereby lightening the blemishes caused due to ageing. It keeps skin firm and toned.
Removes sun tan
It has anti-inflammatory properties that help remove sunburns. Mixing few strands of saffron with honey or milk and applying it to the skin will naturally remove the tan, and your complexion will appear lighter. It also works best for dry skin.
Neem Treats acne
It cleanses the body from within and helps treat many skin allergies. Boil a few leaves of neem in water until it becomes soft and leaves colour. Cool it down and apply it to the skin daily. One of the best methods to get rid of acne is neem. It not only clears skin but also heals the inflammation caused due to it.
