Anyone who has suffered from chronic, hormonal, or periodic acne knows how incredibly frustrating it can be. Most acne sufferers have run the gambit of treatment options, including harsh chemicals and expensive medication.
Many of these harsh chemicals actually further inflame the skin, and can lead to excessive dryness, redness, and itching. For many people, noni can be a great all-natural alternative solution for acne. It works without any harsh chemicals, contains all-organic ingredients, and works with your skin, instead of against it.
We created our Noni Lavender Lotion to be gentle, soothing, and effective against a wide variety of skin complaints, including acne. Here’s how it works.
Relief from Pain and Inflammation
The first step to reducing acne is to reduce the inflammation in the area. Noni contains tons of beneficial compounds that actually work as anti-inflammatories. One of these is scopoletin, an anti-inflammatory phytochemical that is being researched for healing and pain relief.
Reducing inflammation in acne-prone areas helps to slow down the positive feedback loop of irritation and acne formation that can be so difficult to escape from. If you struggle with touching or itching your acne, reducing inflammation might relieve the urge.
Noni also contains compounds that act as anti-histamines, which can help reduce acne altogether by decreasing your body’s sensitivity to skin irritants.
Most of the time, acne gets out of hand when a secondary exterior infection triggers even more inflammation and immune response. Many people combat this by overwashing the face, or by stripping the face with harsh chemicals, but this can actually be counter-productive.
Noni is a much gentler anti-microbial, using organic ingredients to guard your skin against infection. Scopoletin is an anti-bacterial and anti-fungal agent, as well as an anti-inflammatory. Noni also contains anthraquinone, which helps keep bacterial like Staphylococcus aureus, E. coli, and Salmonella at bay.
Just giving your body the chance to heal unimpeded can go a long way towards recovery.
Long-Term Improvement to Skin Texture
Acne is almost always caused by a skin texture problem. Acne-prone skin may be too oily, too flakey, or too prone to clogged pores. All of these conditions can be improved with regular use of noni.
Noni contains the building blocks your body needs to create healthy, resilient skin. Taking noni orally and applying it topically combine to help your body create, protect, and renew youthful, acne-free skin. It works over time by improving collagen levels, providing abundant antioxidants, and providing micronutrients needed by the skin to create healthy new cells.
The result is relief from acne by treating the true root of the problem: skin texture and imbalance.
Scarring can be one of the most frustrating aspects of an acne problem. Even once the blemishes themselves are healed, they leave behind unsightly scars that can last for years, or even a lifetime.
By helping the skin get all the nutrients it needs while it’s healing, noni can actually prevent scarring. It boosts collagen production in skin cells, which can help newly forming skin blend properly with existing skin tissue. Noni can also help even out skin tone and texture, to reduce the appearance of discolored scars or patches of damaged skin.
Acne Relief for All Ages
People of all ages suffer from acne for different reasons. Hormone levels change, the environment fluctuates, we come into contact with a new irritant. It’s hard to ever feel fully in the clear from acne. But using noni as a reliable, long-term treatment, both internally and externally, can give your skin some resilience against these changes.
