Neem is a natural remedy for skin inflammation. Apply Neem oil to the scalp and gently massage for several minutes to help prevent dandruff. For irritation, steep mashed Neem leaves in hot water. Let the softened leaves cool and then place on the scalp for 30 minutes. You may gently apply the cooled water mixture to your face to help reduce acne symptoms.

How We Help

At DermaHarmony, our goals are to educate chronic skin care suffers about dermatology, share what contributes to health and wellness, and support our readers in any way we can. We manufacture and sell two soaps in our store that help with a variety of skin conditions. They're worth consideration if you have a condition that can be helped with pyrithione zinc, sulfur, or salicylic acid.
