The nutrients in the oil work together to help your skin recover and heal from everyday damage.
If you are prone to acne, black seed oil has acne fighting ability, too. You’ll notice clearer, younger looking skin after continued use.
Black seed oil fights off the bacteria that causes acne, but it can also keep other bacteria at bay, keeping your face infection free. If you suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or other issues, black seed oil can help.
Black seed oil is rich in fatty acids that can provide long lasting moisture for your skin. These fatty acids have also been known to minimize the look of lines and wrinkles on the face.
If you use black seed oil regularly, it can help reduce the appearance of scars and dark skin spots. Vitamin A and the amino acids found in it work together with the oil’s fatty acids to encourage new skin generation.
Black seed oil also works as a natural anti-inflammatory. That means if you suffer from rosacea or have red skin that you’d like to downplay, it can work to reduce the redness. It also has a natural antihistamine, so it can minimize redness caused by allergies.
