This amazing tree is not only an internal healing plant,Neem has got so much benefits for the skin and hair.
Lets talk about few of its benefits to skin.
1)Acne: Using neem water as a skin toner regularly will help in clearing acne, scars, pigmentation and blackheads.
Boil about 50 neem leaves in half a litre of water till the leaves are soft and discolored, and the water turns green.
Strain and store in a spray bottle.Use this water as your facial spray always for a clear skin.
2)Neem tree has great benefits for the skin. You can use the neem leaves as a face pack that helps reduce acne caused by bacteria.
The face mask, also being high in vitamin E, will ensure the skin doesn’t dry out.
Even using neem leaves boiled in water can help tone your skin and remove blackheads.

leaving your skin supple and healthy. the milk will absorbs excess oil and heals the skin.
5)To Reduce Pimple Scars Pimple scars are very stubborn and will not easily get away from the skin. You can treat them easily with neem leaves.
Make a paste of neem leaves and add a few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well, apply it on the affected area and leave it on for 10-12 minutes.
Then, wash it off with normal water. Lemon juice is a natural astringent, which will give you an effective result over time when used with neem
Finally, “Drying your face after each cleanse has always seemed like the right thing to do. The natural thing to do. However, topical products will better penetrate the skin when it’s damp, which, if you’ve been investing a lot of money in your skincare, you want them to work.”Your skin needs to be damp (not soaking wet) to properly benefit from the products you’re slathering on. it’s best to get your skin routine out of the way before all of the water evaporates from the skin’s surface. If you’re a little too slow, however, you can re-hydrate with a quick spritz of toner.
