Sandalwood is a great skin care product for both dry and oily skin. It happens to effectively hydrate the skin, as well as protect it against sun damage. It also has anti-microbial properties, owing to the presence of beta-santalol. This helps in treating minor skin problems; including cuts, sun burns, acne and even blackheads. Apart from healing, sandalwood also soothes dry, irritated and/or inflamed skin. Even blemishes that are left by stubborn acne, sun tan, etc can also be effectively removed by it. The cleansing, toning, moisturizing and sun-protection properties of sandalwood result in a clean and flawless complexion.
