Neem’s Skin Smoothing Properties
Neem is an incredible resource in skin care that has been used around the world for centuries. How does neem heal, protect and rejuvenate your skin? Through a natural combination of unique and effective compounds that provide its repairing, moisturizing, and anti-aging properties! Neem is a safe, beneficial treatment for acne, making it the go to solution for 95% of people that will suffer from acne in their lifetimes.
Neem oil has been shown to improve skin elasticity in recent studies, especially when combined with a solution of solid lipid nanoparticles. When the solution contained higher amounts of lecithin, a fatty substance used in beauty products as a skin conditioning and softening agent, more antibacterial action was documented. This led to more robust potential for acne treatment when used over a prolonged time.
Neem could even help cystic acne! Containing quercetin, antioxidants, and Vitamin E, neem is effective in treating more severe types of skin issues as well as preventing scarring. Salicylic acid, one of the main ingredients in products treating acne, is an aspirin-type compound. Neem contains a selection of these aspirin-like compounds.
Neem is one of the few natural agents that contain these impressive properties. Many products are still not fully natural, and are known to cause long term damage to the skin, stripping it of natural oils. Causing overproduction of oil, these synthetic chemicals can worsen the acne problem in the long term. Neem is an ingredient that will not only soothe the skin, but also protect it from bacteria while clearing problem areas. It can be used in soaps or even homemade neem pastes and masks with neem leaves and neem powder! Have you ever used neem to treat your acne?
