A lot of people in all age ranges suffer from acne which can cause your skin to get inflamed or become red and can cause a lot of pimples, blackheads, lesions, etc. on your skin.
Thankfully, there is an easy and natural way to get rid of this skin problem, you can use an all-natural neem oil to control your acne and other skin related problems.
Since Neem oil contains antifungal and antibacterial properties, it is really effective in fighting off fungal infections and bacteria which causes acne and its moisturizing property ensures that your skin doesn’t become dry during this process. It is also used effectively in the kitchen but majorly used to treat the skin problems.
So, here are a few ways in which you can use Neem essential oil to treat your various skin problems:
1. Applying it directly
One of the best ways to treat skin problems is by applying Neem oil directly on the skin spot or mixing it with another essential oil like oregano oil, argan oil, or tea tree oil to fight off the bacterial infection and help your skin in healing.
You can apply the essential oil at night before you go to sleep or you can apply it once or twice a day directly to the spot. If applying the oils directly cause irritation, then you might need to dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil.
2. Applying it after dilution
A lot of people have sensitive skin which might not be suitable for a direct application of the Neem oil onto it so you need to dilute the oil with a carrier oil before you apply it on your skin. You can use any carrier oil like Jojoba oil, almond oil, olive oil, coconut oil, and so on.
Just add 6 drops of neem oil to 1 teaspoon of any carrier oil and apply this mixture on your acne spots, lesions, etc. You can also adjust the ratio depending on your required quantity.
3. Making a daytime moisturizer
Another great way to treat your skin problems is by creating a daytime moisturizer by adding neem essential oil in it. You can use aloe vera gel and neem essential oil to make your moisturizer. Make sure that you take just 1 teaspoon of the aloe vera gel and 6 drops of neem oil and mix them well together.
If you are using it as a nighttime moisturizer, then massage your skin with this mixture for a couple of minutes as this will help in removing toxins from your skin and will help your skin to heal.
4. Wash face with neem oil soap
One of the best ways to clean your face and disinfect your acne and other skin infections is by using a mild neem oil soap on your skin. Make sure that you don’t scrub your skin too hard and apply the neem oil soap gently to your face to cleanse the skin. Once you have washed your face with the soap, use cold water to rinse it off and then pat your face dry with the help of a dry towel.
