Turmeric is excellent for acne because of its natural antiseptic and helps to keep bacteria from spreading. The anti-inflammatory qualities can target your pores and help calm the skin. It has also been known to reduce scarring and help the appearance of stretch marks.
Shea butter has been proven to have extensive anti-inflammatory properties. Its fatty acid and vitamin K concentration helps your body to heal faster when your skin barrier has been compromised. The oleic, stearic, palmitic, and linolenic acids help protect and nourish the skin to prevent drying.
The medium-chin fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne and protect the skin from harmful bacteria. Using coconut oil for two weeks has shown to improve skin hydration and was just as effective as mineral oil.
