The final piece in the skin section of “Why Noni is So Special” is acne.
Oh acne! How we despise thee! To eliminate acne let’s briefly discuss what acne is.
To put it plainly, acne starts when your sebaceous glands clog your skin’s pores due to the sebum (or oil) that your skin naturally produces. These pores become inflamed and infected causing redness to appear on the skin that acne is so famous for. Sever cases of acne (cystic acne) are nodules lying below the skin's surface that have become inflamed and infected. Cystic acne is very painful and usually results in scarring.
The first step to reducing acne is to eliminate the inflammation in your skin. Noni fruit contains over 165 powerful compounds. One such compound is scopoletin that works as a natural anti-inflammatory and natural pain reliever. Applying Noni Lavender Lotion to the affected area can cause immediate pain relief helping you resist the urge to pick and scratch your acne. Noni fruit also contains compounds (like vitamin C) that act as anti-histamines, which can help reduce acne by decreasing your body’s sensitivity to skin irritants when cleansing and moisturising your skin.
