Neem (Azadirachta indica- scientific name) is a plant with all its parts having some or the other benefits, and has immense medicinal uses due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It is used as a beauty ingredient like as in soaps or creams for treating skin conditions such as acne, shampoos for treating dandruff, psoriasis, and athlete’s foot. It is also a component in some toothpastes and mouthwashes and neem twigs are used directly as crude toothbrushes in rural areas. Neem leaves have long been used as a traditional treatment for diabetes as it helps control blood sugar levels. Oil extracted from the seeds can be used directly as an insect and mite repellent, insecticide, fungicide and pesticide.

Neem oil is effective towards treating and preventing the signs of ageing and is known to tighten the skin giving it a youthful glow. It soothes irritated or inflamed skin, or even acne-prone skin, thus working on treating it.

A neem face pack along with other kitchen ingredients can work wonders for your skin. These face packs can be used twice a week. Let's see DIY methods to make these face packs based on your skin type:
