Jojoba Oil's unique chemical makeup mimics the sebum naturally present on human skin. Jojoba is odorless, natural, non-greasy, is a natural carrier of Vitamin E and a natural antioxidant. It is an extremely efficient moisture regulator, penetrating the skin to moisturize without blocking the pores while still noncomedogenic. Because it also reduces sebum production and protects the skin from bacteria, Jojoba Oil can also effectively treat acne.
Cayenne Pepper is high in Vitamins A, C, B complex, calcium and potassium. Cayenne Pepper has many amazing properties including pain relief and reducing inflammation. Applying Cayenne Pepper topically can be amazing for your skin and improve both minor and major blemishes, as well as improve the look and feel of your skin. Applied topically, Cayenne Pepper will increase blood flow to the skin which will increase oxygen and many essential nutrients that will aid in healing. Capsicum, the ingredient in cayenne peppers that makes them "hot," does have mild antibacterial properties, which can help it kill some of the bacteria that causes acne, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
Menthol Crystals applied topically to an area affected by acne will activate the skin's cold-sensitive receptors causing a cooling sensation that overrides the irritation from swollen and inflamed blemishes. Effectively reduces pain and tenderness.
