So today, I will talk about some easy-breezy neem face packs for your skin that you can easily prepare at home. But before that, let’s see why it’s so amazing for your skin.

Neem Face Pack Benefits

There have been a few studies and research that hails neem and its extracts as a one-stop-solution for all the pesky skin issues.

  • A study reveals that neem oil can treat signs of aging that includes wrinkles, dryness, and thinning of the skin. The study was conducted on hairless mice that were exposed to UVB rays (1).
  • Neem oil is effective in treating acne. It contains lecithin and solid lipid nanoparticles that kill acne-causing microbes (2).
  • Another study published in Brazilian Journal of Microbiology reveals that Neem extracts have antifungal properties. It’s anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, contains antioxidants, and has anticarcinogenic and antimutagenic properties (3).
  • Neem is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E. And that’s why neem oil can penetrate deep into your skin to treat dryness. Also, it boosts collagen production, which gives you younger looking skin (4).
