Acne & Pimples

Black Seed Skin Balm

Acne and pimples are two separate but related skin conditions that involve the blockage and inflammation of hair follicles in the skin, especially on the face.

ACNE is a long-term skin condition that occurs when dead skin cells and sebum from the skin block up hair follicles.  As the blockage increases, bacteria can colonise the hair follicle, leading to an inflammatory reaction.  Whereas the cause of acne appears to be largely genetic, hormones in both sexes also appear to drive acne by promoting increased production of sebum.  This is one reason hormonal changes in teenage years can lead to acne outbreaks.

PIMPLES can be a symptom of acne, as they too are caused by sebum build up in hair follicles, which in turn can lead to bacterial growth and inflammation.  However, not every pimple is a sign of acne, which is a long-term skin condition.

The Credé Black Seed range of products can be helpful against acne and pimples, because of the strong anti-inflammatory properties of Black Seed oil, which counters the inflammation seen in both acne and pimples.  Black Seed oil also has well-documented anti-bacterial properties, which can help counter the bacterial infection that has caused the inflammation response in the first place.  Additional ingredients, such as jojoba oil, have also been shown to be effective at reducing the symptoms of acne.

Our recommendation for people with acne is that they consider the complete Credé face care routine.  This consists of morning and night cleansing with the Cleansing Milk, followed by the Skin Clearing Serum and the Face Cream.  In addition, weekly use of the Polishing Clay Mask is likely to help.  For serious spots, and to remove pimples most quickly, we recommend the Credé Spot Treatment.
