Mumbai: Cucumber and neem face pack can be effective in treating pimples and blemishes. Cucumber is known for its soothing and hydrating properties, while neem has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Here’s how to prepare and use this face pack:
1/2 cucumber (peeled and grated)
1 teaspoon neem paste (from neem leaves or neem powder)
A few drops of lemon juice (optional to add extra glow to the skin)
– Start by peeling and grating half of the cucumber to get the cucumber pulp.
– If using fresh neem leaves, grind them into a paste using a mortar and pestle. If you have neem powder, you can skip this step.
– Mix cucumber pulp and neem paste in a bowl. If you want to add a skin brightener, add a few drops of lemon juice.
– Mix the ingredients well to make a smooth, consistent paste.
– Start with a clean face by using a gentle facial cleanser and patting your skin dry.
– Apply cucumber and neem face pack evenly on your face, avoiding the eye area.
– Leave the pack on your skin for about 15-20 minutes. As it dries, it can feel cool and refreshing.
– Once the pack dries, wash your face thoroughly with lukewarm water.
– Gently pat your skin dry with a clean towel and apply your regular moisturizer, if necessary.
