This interesting article suggests there may be a new contender in the fight against acne breakouts…and it’s located in your vegetable garden!
Radishes are the latest natural ingredient to prove effective in reducing inflammation and bacteria that causes acne. The interesting things about this ingredient is that it reduces the overproduction of acne bacteria while allowing effective bacteria levels to remain.
The bacteria (officially known as bacteria Propionibacterium acnes) is helpful at normal, balanced levels. However, with the overproduction of oil and internal imbalances leading to acne, this bacteria goes haywire and builds up in the pores and hair follicles, leading to pimples. Inflammation is sure to follow, making matters worse for the acne sufferer.
Antibiotics are typically used to treat acne in the world or dermatology, but they often wipe out all levels, leaving the skin (and body) vulnerable.
