Natural Colloidal Silver MSM Cream for Teenage Acne Spots and Pimples
This is antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory and contains the following active ingredients:
Colloidal Silver: Colloidal silver is a preparation containing very tiny particles of silver suspended in demineralized water with a broad spectrum antimicrobial action and is antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral.
Acne results from hormonal changes (with increased sebum production as a result) and a diet rich in carbohydrates. This combination causes plugs in skin pores comprising dead skin cells and sebum, leading to skin bumps called whiteheads and blackheads.
The usually harmless skin bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes) often get involved leading to inflammation and redness. This results in pustules (true acne pimples) and cysts (painful, deep lesions).
The topical application of colloidal silver will help treat acne. Colloidal silver acne treatment is due to the ability of colloidal silver to fight off the bacterial infection associated with acne, which not only stops existing acne pimples but also prevents the formation of new ones.
MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): An organic sulfur compound that improves immune function, lowers inflammation and help restore healthy bodily tissue.
As the skin has a very high concentration of cysteine (a sulfur-containing amino acid), the biologically active sulfur found in MSM helps keep skin soft, smooth and pliable even in harsh conditions. MSM has also been shown to reduce the amount of scar tissue developed after injury. After injury or surgery, the body tries to reconnect (cross-link) itself and heal the damaged tissue; however, it does not usually heal to the pre-damaged state. MSM has been shown to assist in proper tissue reconnecting, reducing the development of scar tissue.
Allantoin is a natural compound known for its many beneficial properties in skincare. It moisturizes, soothes, exfoliates, heals wounds, and has anti-aging benefits. It hydrates skin, reduces inflammation, and promotes cell turnover for a brighter complexion. Allantoin also has antioxidant properties that protect against free radicals, preventing signs of aging. Overall, it’s a versatile and effective ingredient suitable for many different skin types and concerns.
Hydrolyzed wheat protein: Hydrolyzed Wheat protein has been shown as one of the most effective pore minimizers in modern skin care, providing the porcelain look when utilized in facial cleansers, toners, serums, gels, or lotions. It provides balanced moisture and gently nourishes the skin.
Niacinamide: Anti-inflammatory properties of niacinamide have been shown to reduce the symptoms of acne. Niacinamide boosts collagen, evens skin tone, and reduces hyper-pigmentation caused by aging and sun damage.
Vitamin B5: Vitamin B5 or pantothenic acid is a water-soluble vitamin and a member of the B vitamins and is required for the production of coenzyme A and the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Vitamin B5 has been shown to reduce sebum production and also improve acne breakouts.
In addition, it reduces redness and itchiness on the skin, which are common symptoms of acne—many people who use Vitamin B5 cream notice almost instant relief. B5 is necessary for the growth and development of skin cells (keratinocytes).
Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine): Vitamin B6 promotes healthy skin by reducing its sensitivity to testosterone and participating in the synthesis of RNA and DNA, which is affected by acne. The positive effects of vitamin B6 in acne treatment can be attributed to the role of the vitamin in regulating hormone activity and prostaglandin action.
Aloe vera: The antibacterial properties of aloe vera gel are very effective in treating acne and reducing the redness caused by it. It prevents bacteria from infecting acne wounds and accelerates the process of healing. Its antifungal properties are helpful in treating inflammation like boils and cysts on the skin.
Microfine silica has light-reflecting properties, which smooth imperfections and give an SPF of ~10.
