Curcumin Offers a Multi-Faceted Solution for Acne Sufferers


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2014 -- Acne isn’t just a teenage affliction. It often lingers on to affect people in their 30s and beyond. Promising new studies with curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is offering an alternative for those with acne and other skin problems. Curcumin dietary supplements are providing people with an easy means of obtaining the botanical’s benefits.

“Curcumin appears to help fight acne and its many effects in multiple ways,” said VitaBreeze spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

Acne is one of the most common skin conditions, but left untreated it can cause permanent scarring and dark spots on the skin. Dermatologists aren’t sure why, but there are more people with acne lasting into their 40s and 50s than ever before.

Acne occurs when the pores become blocked with dead skin cells. Dead skin cells are normally shed, but the oil the body secretes to keep skin moisturized can make them stick together. The dead skin becomes trapped in the pore, along with bacteria. The clogged pore becomes infected, inflamed and acne occurs.

Adults are turning to curcumin dietary supplements to address acne at all stages due to the herb’s multiple properties. It’s an anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial. Accelerated healing has been reported and it’s being used to address hyperpigmentation. The remedy is backed by the results of scientific studies conducted around the world.

Researchers came away from numerous clinical trials with documented proof that it’s as effective as many steroid and pain-relieving prescription medications. Curcumin is a powerful antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals at the cellular level where long-lasting damage occurs. A study at Chang Gung University in Taiwan demonstrated curcumin’s ability to successfully inhibit the formation of acne.

Studies conducted at Ehime University in Japan concluded that curcumin prevented wrinkle formation, protected against the effects of UVB rays, helped minimize the size of blood vessels and prevented thickening of the skin.

Studies have suggested a daily dosage of 750mg of curcumin offers the greatest benefit and should be combined with a black pepper extract to facilitate absorption. Such supplements are widely available on popular online shopping sites such as

Curcumin provides a multi-faceted approach to acne that inhibits the growth of bacteria, while its antioxidant ability neutralizes free radicals that damage cells. Combined with its ability to reduce inflammation that accompanies acne and accelerate healing, it offers an effective alternative to expensive prescription medications.
