Can neem paste be applied on the face?

Well, the answer is a big YES! Neem is very popular as a medicinal plant. And its leaves and extracts are commonly used for their antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and healing properties. It is a great source of fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are necessary for healthy skin. Additionally, neem contains active components such as nimbidin, nimbolide, and azadirachtin that can help clear up many skin problems, according to Dr. Kapoor. So why not use this gift of nature for our skin?

Aside from this, here is how neem can benefit your skin health:
