Neem Oil For Skin: Benefits And How To Use

5 Benefits Of Using Neem Oil For Skin

 Cold pressed neem oil is extracted from the fruits and seeds of the neem tree. It has a thick consistency and pungent aroma. Organic neem oil has a wide variety of uses in natural skin care. The composition of triglycerides of oleic, stearic, linoleic, limonoids and palmitic acids make it a useful addition to any skin care routine.

Benefits Of Neem Oil For Skin Health 

1.Controls Acne

The antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties of cold pressed neem oil make it  beneficial for reducing acne. It soothes redness, pain and irritation around inflamed acne. 100% pure neem oil can also be used as a spot treatment for acne.

2.Moisturises Skin

The presence of oleic acid and linoleic acid in organic neem oil helps keep your skin soft and supple.

3.Lightens Scars

Neem oil lightens pigmented acne scars, prevents active acne from leaving behind new scars and promotes clear skin.

4.Provides Antioxidants

Cold pressed neem oil contains a wide range of compounds and one of them is nimbin (triterpene). Nimbin provides your skin with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. It reduces oxidative damage by mitigating free radicals.

5.Delays Ageing

Regularly using neem oil in your routine provides anti-ageing effects on your skin. Organic neem oil is rich in omega-9 fatty acids which are known to prevent dry and flaky skin and improve skin elasticity, leaving your skin’s appearance youthful and rejuvenated.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Can I apply neem oil directly on the skin?

    Yes. Organic cold-pressed neem oil can be applied to your skin without any dilution. However, due to its pungent aroma, we recommend using it in a blend of different oils.

    Can I leave neem oil on my face overnight?

    We suggest using neem oil as an overnight spot treatment for acne or acne scars. If you wish to use a natural oil to moisturise your skin at night, try 2 drops of organic rosehip oil or hemp seed oil mixed with 1 drop of organic neem oil for best results.
