Can neem cure acne?
It isn’t always easy being today’s woman. Yes, we do lead fulfilling lives that keep us busy and motivated, but there is a pitfall to it – our resulting lifestyles. Being on-the-go constantly can wreak havoc with our bodies, and the first place it starts to show is our skin. The effects of damage caused to our skin because of pollution, stress and sometimes, lifestyle challenges, can be irreversible if not addressed in a timely manner.
Being vulnerable to an acne attack
It isn’t always about age, because not just teens but young women too are prone to acne. There is probably nothing worse in your teen years than having to go to college or that all-important outing with friends with a breakout of pimples on your face!
Even though someone in their 20s is not immune to acne, a result of hormonal changes can haunt us well into our 30s as well.
What do you do, then?
Finding an effective solution
It becomes important to find a solution for acne, because if left untreated, the condition can worsen further. Over the counter medication may provide temporary respite, but what the skin really needs is some nourishment and TLC from the inside. So, don’t rely a hundred percent on your facewash to cure your acne, but instead, dig deeper. Think traditional, think. NEEM!
Neem has been a part of traditional Indian medicine since millennia. In the Vedas it is often referred to as the ‘sarva roga nivarini’, which means ‘one that cures all ailments and ills’. Interestingly, it is considered to be of divine origin and is also known as ‘Kalpavruksha’.
Even today, its curative and antibacterial properties cannot be ignored. Neem has insecticidal properties and is soothing and moisturising, providing the much-needed nourishment for the skin. It contains compounds that rid the skin of bacteria, thereby reducing breakouts. It also helps to reduce any redness or inflammation that may arise because of the acne.
The traditional recipe
While over the counter, commercial remedies may be easily available, not all of them are effective. The fact remains that some of them can do more harm than good. The skin being a delicate organ, it needs special attention on a regular basis. Assess your skin, and make neem a part of your daily routine. Instead of using an overwhelming number of products on your skin, try Hamam, which contains the goodness of 100 per cent pure Neem Oil and is effective in managing acne. When you want to protect your skin as you #GoSafeOutside, trust neem to keep you going.
Remember, when it comes to skin care, trusting natural ingredients is always a good start.
