I was amazed to discover recently that almost 60 million Americans suffer from acne and that 1/3 of these cases, that’s 20 million people end up with scarring due to the condition. The good news is that there are now many safe and natural products that reduce scarring due to acne including an amazing new treatment based on, of all things, pepper. Yes, that’s right chili pepper based face wash has been found to clear up acne in just a few days of use and with no burning sensation or streaming eyes as you might expect from this fiery substance.
Unlike many natural remedies for severe acne which can take weeks or even months to have any noticeable effect, Capsaicin based products have an almost immediate impact on most forms of acne. Being a safe and natural product most chili pepper creams have little in the way of additives and harsh chemicals which keep these products safer as well as cheaper. It win-win for you and your skin.
The active ingredient in these products is Capsaicin which has been proven to be very good at fighting the effects of acne. It works by creating a thermal reaction in the skin, opening pores and increasing the blood flow. It also has many powerful anti-microbial properties which combat the harmful bacteria that is one of the primary causes of most acne.
Capsaicin also helps to desensitize the skin and this in turn reduces pain, swelling and inflammation associated with acne. It is also very beneficial in dealing with circulatory problems. Of course, then best effect of these products is that, by minimizing the time that your acne hangs around for, it ultimately helps to reduce scarring of the skin. So if you are one of the 20 million acne sufferers out there you may be glad to know that help is now available from the most unlikely of places – the chilli pepper. Just don’t add it to your next meal now!
