Sandal paste has been used since centuries to achieve a smooth, vibrant and radiant complexion. It moisturizes dry skin, and shrinks pores of oily skin, hence controlling the oiliness. This makes sandal a great agent for use on all skin types. It also works against UV damage, and helps lighten dark spots and marks caused due to acne, tanning, blemishes or pigmentation. The component beta-santalol present in Sandal makes it a powerful anti microbial or anti septic too, which can be used to treat skin infections, cuts, burns, acne and other skin problems. Sandal has also been known to reduce blackheads and calm inflamed or itching and irritated skin.
