Neem And Acne

Can neem cure acne?
Is there any benefit in using neem for acne?

Regarding neem and acne there is some good news and some bad news for you...

  • The bad news: neem is not a miracle cure for acne.
  • The good news: acne can be treated, and acne can be successfully treated with neem.

If used correctly neem can work wonders. But only if used correctly!

More and more websites are springing up, pushing the use of neem for acne. Neem acne soap, neem lotion and neem cream, and also the internal use of neem capsules, neem powder or neem tea (can be made from powder or neem leaves), they all supposedly work wonders.

Always remember: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Neem is a powerful antibacterial herb
 and it can indeed be very helpful with acne. People do report great results when using it. But don't run out now to grab the next available neem soap bar and that mega savings pack of neem capsules. There is a bit more to it.

Acne is a complex medical condition. Everybody is different, every case of acne is different, and sometimes it can be a bit tricky to figure out the best treatment.

This section will help you to understand your acne, to assess your own situation, and to decide if and how you should use neem for acne.
