I usually don't experiment a lot with my skin's cleansing and nourishing routine but when it comes to trying out a natural ingredient, I am all game. Neem has been around us for ages and is a natural ingredient that is easily available too. I had heard of the immense health benefits of Neem and also how neem is beneficial for your hair and skin too but had never given it a shot. Recently, I was facing a lot of dandruff issues and also was suffering from breakouts on my skin. I didn't want to opt for allopathic treatment for this and was on a lookout for a natural ingredient is when I found out that I could use neem water for these problems of mine. I used neem water for 10 days and here's my review.
