My Skin Diary

Pimple/Acne/Zits are the most dreaded words in a Girls dictionary, these words were a reality in my world. As a part of adolescence it was the biggest problem I faced when I looked in the mirror every morning. I simply hated that big red boil which appeared overnight from nowhere right in the middle of my cheek. I felt cheated and wondered why this was happening to me. I would pinch and squeeze it in spite of knowing I should not do that, hoping that it would magically disappear and be considerate to me. Alas in vain it simply got worse leaving an open wound or even more visible redness on my face.
The exact cause for Acne has not yet been scientifically proven. However; many theories have been developed. The most common theory is that hormones rise to incredible levels before and after puberty. This causes the skin to be more vulnerable to oils, which may cause Acne. And I was in this category too.
Apart from being the largest organ of the body, skin has long been recognized as the organ of expression and communication. Skin is like a mirror to reflect our soul. For an introvert girl like me, I wanted to look my best and even mild acne made be so embarrassed and sad.
School days were over and then came college where there was interaction with the opposite sex. You can’t imagine the stress I would wake up to each morning. With friends and elders advice I started on a war footing against these pesky cruel face spoilers. Then came all the lotions, creams and bitter tonics I applied and consumed to get rid of my misery. I tried anti dandruff shampoos, went on water and fruit fast and even applied my morning spit hoping my acne would divorce me for good. I did win over them at times and passed those days with flying colours just like all my exams.
Post marriage and pregnancy was a better phase but occasionally pimple outbreaks did occur. Then came this most precious advice from my Salon stylist Jane who vouches for Garnier products. She is the last person to recommend anything without trying, yet she expressed her deep satisfaction for Garnier Shampoos and Garnier Neem Face wash. She said when they try a product and notice visible changes it means that product is worth every rupee. She also feels Garnier is best suited for Indian skin

So I got my first tube of Garnier Neem face wash. The cover promised me this:-
It contains real Neem Leaf and Tree Tea Oil extracts:
1) Fights germs: Washes away problem causing germs.
2) Fights Pollution: deep cleans pores to remove impurities caused by pollution.
3) Removes Oil: Washes away excess oil which attracts dirt & germs.
However Seeing is believing, so I tried it for a week. My skin saw visible changes. It felt hydrated, soft and I am a much happier person now. I get the confidence to click selfies anywhere and at anytime. Most of all I wake up without the fear of facing the mirror with that huge zit but soft happy skin saying a silent thank you . So three cheers to  #GarnierpureActive

  1. I find that tea tree oil is really good for my pimples because it’s like an antiseptic product so it stops any dirt build up, reducing my reoccurrence of spots. Body shop – you should try it. Apply a few drops each night

  2. I also faced with a same problem. I wish i could also find some miracle to eradicate these. Anyways thank you for the review.
