Benefits
Fuller’s earth deeply clean pores and draw-out oils and sebaceous fats below the skin. Also lightens ‘dark spots’ and leaves your face toned, clean and clear. Neem contains anti- fungal and anti- bacterial properties and is a boon for people with sensitive or oily, acne prone skin. It helps clearing acne, prevent breakouts and get rid of whiteheads and blackheads. Tea tree oil also helps clear acne, redness and irritation. It acts as a cooling agent that allows acne to settle down and reduce any rashes or swelling. Cucumber juice helps fade freckles, improves complexion, tightens open pores, soothes and softens skin. Tomato juice helps in getting rid of tanning, counters discoloration of skin, helps in treating and preventing acne, shrinks open pores and regulates secretion of sebum in oily skin.

Extra Tip:
If it fits your taste, drink a glass of neem, cucumber and tomato juice with a dash of salt and pepper. One glass everyday will show improvements in skin gradually and you will love me for it!
