The Many Benefits of Neem for Skin, Hair, and Overall Health
Neem has a history of having a positive effect on the skin and body. As an ingredient its most commonly sourced from India and used to treat and improve general health and wellness. Referred to as the ‘Village Pharmacy’, Neem contains properties that make it beneficial to your lifestyle. It has also been used in many different ways, from treating blackheads and whiteheads, preventing and treating infections and boosting dental health.
1) Blackheads & Whiteheads
Whiteheads and blackheads occur when the pores of the skin become clogged by dirt and other impurities. To prevent bacteria from developing and spreading, try incorporating Neem into your daily skincare routine. Once applied directly to the skin it works to cleanse the problem areas and breaks down these impurities. Our Tea tree & Neem toner works as solution to directly treat the congested areas by balancing the pH of the skin, boosting hydration and reducing inflammation.
2) Preventing infections
Neem can prevent infection on the skin and within the body. Due to its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties, it can stop infections from developing. Treating the skin directly by taking a bath with this Neem infused water can help keep any bodily infection at bay or taking Neem supplements regularly will encourage internal cleansing.
3) Boosting Dental Health
Neem has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, that can be used to improve your dental hygiene. Many cultures in India have the common practice of chewing on Neem bark to treat dental health issues. It can also be used to treat oral health issues such as gingivitis and tooth decay.
4) Promoting Bodily Health
Antioxidants are compounds that protect your cells from free radicals that can cause damage to your skin and body. By using ingredients high in antioxidants you aid your body in protecting itself. Its also rich in antioxidants and vitamin E, which actively protect the skin from free radicals. In addition, it helps to fight oxidative stress, which promotes liver and kidney health. Oxidative stress happens when there is a build-up of free radicals, which are unstable molecules that enter the body.
