Dry Skin

Dry Skin

Neem oil can help relieve symptoms of dry skin. Compounds in Neem oil help to relieve swelling and redness and inhibit the body’s ability to make and release histamine and other irritants. Wash dry skin with a Neem soap, dry, and apply pure Neem oil, a Neem lotion, or Neem cream as a moisturizer. Repeat several times a day in cases of severe dry skin.


Dry Skin

Neem has a powerful effect on the skin in general, and has been helpful in treating a variety of skin problems and diseases including dry skin, and rashes and even persistent skin conditions like acne, psoriasis, eczema, lice, and scabies. For thousands of years Aryuvedic medicine has promoted Neem as the herb of choice to treat skin diseases.

In sanskrit neem is known as sarva roga nivarini, the curer of all aliments, and the earliest sanskrit medical writings dating back thousands of years refer to the benefits of its fruits, seeds, oil, leaves and bark. Neem moisturizes skin like Cocoa or Shea butter and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits like the more well known Tea Tree or Aloe Vera plant.

Dry skin is the result of the dermis being unable to retain sufficient water and fat to keep the skin moisturized, resulting in itchy and flaking skin. Small capillaries that feed the skin can become closed off, depriving the skin of needed oxygen and nutrients. Dry skin is a common condition that can occur at any age for a variety of reasons. External environmental factors, such as weather or lifestyle actions like frequent showering or the washing of hands can often be the cause, but internal factors such as diet can also lead to imbalances that cause dry skin.

Unlike petroleum based moisturizers, neem oil helps restores the skin's natural elasticity. With a high Vitamin E content, and rich with emollients and fatty acids, neem soothes dry, cracked or otherwise stressed and damaged skin. When applied to dry skin, neem oil helps replenish missing oil and helps the skin retain water and produce collagen. Capillaries that had been closed off become dilated renewing blood flow to the skin and delivering oxygen and nutrients, reversing the causes of dry skin and leaving the skin feeling softer and smoother. Neem moisturizes and protects the skin and helps reduce inflammation, discomfort and itching, while helping to prevent infections.

To combat dry skin, bathe or shower with a neem soap, add neem leaf powder to a warm bath, apply neem oil, neem lotion, neem salve or a neem cream to effected areas several times daily as needed. Consider taking neem leaf capsules or neem tea orally to help restore internal balance to the body.
