These skincare ingredients are proven to reduce acne

It seems as though there’s a new “cure” for acne almost every day, and there are many effective prescription and over-the-counter treatments. But, if you want a natural, non-chemical way to treat your breakouts, these five ingredients are what you’re looking for.


Research shows that the consumption and topical application of green tea [or green tea extract] helps to calm skin irritations and redness, but also improves the look of acne scars. It is full of antioxidants, polyphenols called catechins, that attack free radicals and also have anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. One especially important catechin in green tea is epigallocatechin gallate [EGCG] which is proven to improve the state of acne-prone and oily skin because it’s effective at reducing sebum production. 

Excess sebum can clog pores and increase bacterial growth, causing hormonal acne. EGCG helps break this cycle.

Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory capabilities that make it a popular ingredient in commercial acne treatments. Aloe Vera boosts the blood flow in your skin and kills off harmful bacteria. You can also spot-treat your acne breakout areas if you have it in pure form, leave the aloe on overnight, and wash it off in the morning to reduce redness and irritation. Since aloe vera can stimulate healthy skin cell growth, it will hydrate your face without causing shine or overproduction of oils, which can clog your pores.

If you suffer from acne, the research is on your side. Aloe vera has been found to be an effective bacteria killer and acne treatment. With very little risk and a high possibility for success, most people should feel optimistic about using aloe vera as a part of their skincare routine.

Derived from the hemp variety of the cannabis sativa plant (coming from the seeds, CBD oil comes from the leaves), cannabis sativa seed oil is rich in fatty acids needed to soothe stressed, irritated, sensitive skin, including blemish- and acne-prone skin. Important for overall skin health, fatty acids form the building blocks for healthy cell membranes, lipids and oils, which are essential for skin hydration and healthy skin barrier function.

With such calming properties, this oil helps to reduce breakouts, and relieve redness, discomfort, and irritation. Hemp seed oil is also non-comedogenic, which prevents build-ups that cause breakouts.

This versatile player is the real deal. Also known as vitamin B3, niacinamide is an essential nutrient with an endless list of benefits for your skin, including the comforting, balancing, and fading of acne. It also strengthens the skin barrier, retains humidity, guards from environmental aggressors, balances oil production, reduces hyperpigmentation, and neutralises dullness.

If you experience moderate to serious acne that tends to stick for a long time, the inclusion of niacinamide in your skincare routine will help reduce redness and irritation and regulate sebum production, as both over or underproduction of sebum can cause breakouts. It’s also one of the best choices for preventing acne scarring and fading older acne marks.

We know you’ve heard this name a thousand times, but this precious ingredient is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines for a reason. When it comes to active breakouts and build-up, salicylic acid is one of the first natural choices. This powerful extract of the bark of the willow tree is simply irreplaceable in cleaning buildups deep inside your pores. It is calming, antibacterial and able to prevent and reduce congestions, which makes her the key ingredient in treatments of many types of acne. 

Salicylic acid is soluble in oil and acts as an exfoliator, which allows her to penetrate deep into sebum filled pores and do the deep cleaning, whether you struggle with blackheads, whiteheads, or pimples.
