City folks cannot escape pollution, however hard they tried. Free radicals threaten us everywhere—from the air we breathe to the foods we eat – posing risks to the skin, your largest organ. We all know that healthy skin starts from inside out, but skin damage can start from outside in. Does this mean blemish-free, glowing skin is a boon only to a few who are genetically blessed? Not if you believe in the power of neem.
Neem has always been revered by Ayurveda and trusted for its antibacterial, antiparasitic, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. These have proven health benefits as well as help get rid of those skin irritants that come in the way of you and your beauty.
