How to Get Rid of Acne with Black Seed Oil
Posted on January 29, 2016
Egyptian black seed is referred to as the "seed of life" throughout Africa, where it has been used for over 2500 years! Used by Cleopatra and Nefertiti, this oil can do wonders for your skin and health. It's famous for its soothing effect on dry, sensitive, or irritated skin because of its natural antiseptic and cooling properties. It's also naturally anti-inflammatory which reduces the redness and swelling of pimples.
So now let's get to the fun part, how you can use it!
How Can I Use Black
Seed Oil to Treat Acne?
The Easiest Method
- Simply dab blemishes with a cotton ball soaked in black seed oil.
Make a Black Seed Oil Moisturizer - A lot of people think that if they have acne they should keep their skin free from moisture. This is a big mistake! When your skin gets dry, your skin produces MORE sebum. To make an effective acne-reducing moisturizer, simply mix 1/2 cup black seed oil with a small amount of apple cider vinegar and leave it on overnight for intensely soft and blemish-free skin.
Make a Black Seed Face Mask - This face mask is not only a great way to treat acne, it's also an exceptional way to heal itchy, dry or irritated skin. Mix 1/2 cup of black seed oil and half a cup of either jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, or sunflower oil. You can add a touch of lemon zest to improve the smell if you want to. Gently massage the mask onto your skin, leaving it to sit for two hours, and then rinse with lukewarm water.
