When it comes to treating acne scars, Allium Cepa (Onion Bulb) Extract is a powerful ingredient in the world of skincare. Nature’s miracle, it has been used for thousands of years for its medicinal and healing properties.
Onion for Acne Scars
Two of the main causes of acne are inflammation and bacteria. By reducing these causes, Allium Cepa (Onion Bulb) Extract can help in the prevention of future breakouts and reduction in the risk of new scar formation. Onions are packed with antioxidants, including quercetin, that help to protect healthy cells while defending skin from free radical damage. Other benefits include help in reducing inflammation, redness, swelling, and the appearance of acne scars. Onions also have antibacterial properties that are helpful in preventing breakouts, as they fend off acne-causing bacteria.
Onions for Skin Transformation
Onions can help transform your complexion in many ways, from skin hydration to diminishing the appearance of scars. The healthy skincare properties of Allium Cepa (Onion Bulb) Extract include antioxidant quercetin, phytonutrients, sulfur, and Vitamins A, C & E. The benefits are of promotion cellular renewal and collagen production, while providing protection from damage to help improve overall skin health. Another benefit is the ability to improve skin hydration as it seals in moisture. A well-hydrated complexion that is in balance is better able to heal and regenerate itself, and less likely to develop new breakouts. Less breakouts mean less new scars. The results are an improvement in the appearance of old and new scars, burn marks, and sun damage.
What Causes Scars
During the healing process of injuries and damage to the skin, scar tissue is created and can result in textured skin or a scar. Common skin injuries are acne, burns, and surgery. When the skin is damaged due to a breakout of pimples, whiteheads, or blackheads, acne scars are formed. The skin is unable to fully heal over time, leaving behind scars with a noticeable discoloration or texture change. By promoting the production of collagen, a protein that helps the skin to regenerate and heal itself, Allium Cepa (Onion Bulb) Extract has been shown to help reduce the appearance of these scars.
