Be Pimple Free With Himalaya

Thanks to The Butterfly Project, I am one of the lucky bloggers selected to attend a gathering with Himalaya to get to know more on their neem range products. It's happening at Fuwa Fuwa Cafe, Jaya One. This cafe even have bakery classes for children. 

So back to Himalaya, neem tree is indigenous to India and is cultivated all over the world for it's bark, leaves and fruit. Neem leaves combines antiseptic, antiviral, antifungal, astringent, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that creates a holistic remmedy against acne and pimples. For centuries, crushed neem leaves have been used to treat acne and improve skin texture. Alternatively dried neem leaves are ground to a fine powder, mixed with water and applied to the skin. The powder is also used in the production of food supplements. 

Thanks to Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, now you can have all the neem benefit that will leave your skin silky smooth and pimple free without the tiresome and complicated preparations. 

First up, we started the session with some light stretching. Then we are introduce the traditional method of preparing neem with turmeric using the stone mortar. This concoction can be eaten for it's benefit or applied on our skin. I've tasted neem leaves and neem herbal tea before, all I've could remember is the bitterness. Really bitter to the max, I tell you! Surprisingly, with turmeric add on the taste is still bearable. 3 girls that volunteer to tried out the pounded mixture is given a gift.
