While summer is one of the most beautiful seasons that we have, the need to have a hygienic skin routine at all times during summers is paramount, because of the bacteria that multiply at speed levels- causing skin infections.

Especially for acne-prone skin, the skin-care regime is no less exhausting than that of the military. Well, my only advice to these kinds of problems would be to switch to natural and ditch absolutely anything with even a hint of chemicals.

If you do plan to take my advice then you will see how benevolent the Peppermint oil really is. To cleanse your skin of all the dust through the day, mix Peppermint oil and Neem oil in a ratio of 1:3, and pour it over a cotton ball to later use it as a cleansing pad. The antibacterial and cooling property of the Peppermint oil will ensure that your skin is clean and soothed from the sun, while the Neem oil will help remove the dirt and cure your skin.

For that quintessential beauty sleep, mix Peppermint oil with Lavender oil in equal amount, and just gently apply it all over your face before going to bed with the help of a cotton ball. While the cooling effect of Peppermint oil will help you relax, the soothing effect of Lavender oil will help you sleep better, resulting in faster collagen production.

However, if you do not wish to invest in the other aforementioned oils, you can simply use the Peppermint oil by itself and you’re good to go. But, do make it a point to buy organic only!
