Neem is widely known for its antibacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal, antihistamine and anti-microbial properties, which make it excellent to be used on the skin. Neem is a herb that comes from the Neem Tree, hence shares all of its healing properties, from soothing the skin to clearing blemishes and restoring its elasticity. Neem soaps and oils are highly underrated even though they provide for the best results when used, especially those that are glycerin-based. They help to moisturize the skin instead of drying it out. As we approach winter, here is why you must incorporate the herb into your daily night routine:
1. Clears skin irritation and acne
The soap acts as an antibacterial agent and thus may help tending to acne. It can also aid in reducing redness caused by dry skin.
2. Filled with antioxidants
Neem soaps are filled with antioxidants, which help to combat inflammation, fight free radicals, and help the skin in a number of ways including skin-brightening and hydration. Neem soaps are not harsh which is why they should be used by those who have sensitive skin.
3. Hydrates and moisturizes skin
Neem masks hydrate the skin, due to their ability to help the skin’s water retention. You also have additional hydration help if you opt for an option with aloe, as the plant is deeply hydrating.
4. Minimal ingredients, clean product
Many people, especially nowadays, are on the hunt for minimal-ingredient products, which do not have many side-effects. Neem soaps works wonders on infections, rashes, sun damage and for those who are prone to eczema.
5. Anti-ageing properties
Neem oil is anti-aging, because it is loaded with omega-6, omega-9 fatty acids, and palmitic acid. These oils quickly and effectively repair damaged skin and keep the skin wrinkle free. If used regularly, in the AM or PM, it can make one look young and fresh in the long run. You can also mix it with coconut oil for best results.
