News Desk, News Nation 360 : Tired of investing in expensive skin & body care products that assure results but fail to? The answer lies in simple, inexpensive natural ingredients that pack a host of benefits and aren’t going to load up the skin with heavy chemicals. Let’s look at their benefits – Aloe vera contains 75 potentially active constituents: vitamins, enzymes, minerals, sugars, lignin, saponins, salicylic acids and amino acids. It contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), C and E, which are antioxidants. So basically, it packs in the power of the multiple serums and masks everyone uses into one refreshing gel. Neem, especially in the oil format contains fatty acids (EFA) and is high on the disinfection quotient. Summers in India are getting hotter with each passing year and the monsoons are almost upon in some ways. The heat causes the skin to become rough and tanned, the sweat and grime clog pores, ultimately resulting in an uneven skin tone. Before one loosen the purse strings to purchase ‘expensive-so-must-be-great’ products, it's time to invade the kitchen garden and seek out the humble Neem and Aloe Vera. A combination of the two can help with a myriad of skin issues that concern the people during these months. Now that one knows the benefits, it’s time to incorporate these humble ingredients. If one doesn’t have them readily available, do consider planting these in the kitchen gardens. Or seek out everyday, easy-to-use products like the Vivel Neem Oil and Aloe Vera body wash. Available at INR 40/- for 100ml and in Rs. 80 for 200ml.
