Acne vulgaris is an inflammatory skin condition that affects the pores of the head, neck, and shoulders, causing plugs and infections that appear as blackheads, whiteheads, pimples, and cysts.
How Does Seabuckthorn Help Acne?
Seabuckthorn acts internally and externally on the three main acne culprits: immune system and endocrine (hormone) imbalances, and chronic inflammation. Seabuckthorn contains several potent natural anti-inflammatory agents (including quercetin and salycins), as well as several groups of micronutrients (including Omegas 3,6, 7 and 9) that work together to balance and regulate the body's hormonal and immune systems. Topical Seabuckthorn applications soften, smooth and strengthen the skin and reduce scarring, swelling and inflammation, allowing the skin to finally break the inflammatory cycle and heal itself. Seabuckthorn is also a mild analgesic, which discourages scratching and picking, and is an anti-microbial. Taken internally, seabuckthorn moderates and regulates the inflammatory, immune and endocrine (hormonal) systems, and balances the skin's cells by strengthening cell and blood vessel walls. If you are wondering where to start, we recommend the SBT Tea, the Tea Bar and the Seed Oil as the bare minimum to introduce your skin to the Seabuckthorn Acne Treatment Program.
