Acne and Black Seed
Acne is one of the most common chronic skin disorders, usually affecting the face and sometimes the back, chest, and shoulders as well.
Magic Weapon against Skin Problems
With Black Seed (Nigella Sativa), skin problems can be countered early on. Usually symptoms will diminish after about two weeks of regular ingestion of Black Seed. Take 1 or 2 capsules or 25 drops of Black Seed Oil 3 times a day. External application of Black Seed cream will reduce scarring and discourage breakouts.
Eliminating all refined sugars, reducing the consumption of high-fat foods, and limiting milk consumption may also help. A number of vitamins, including vitamins A and E and zinc, may also reduce the severity of breakouts. Increasing intake of fresh foods rich in these vitamins- such as almonds, apricots, beans, beef, cantaloupe, carrots, oats, and olive oil- may be beneficial for the healing of the skin.
Black Seed 'Cream'
240 ml Apple Cider Vinegar
1 cup (227g) finely ground Black Seeds (Nigella Sativa Seeds)
Black Seed Oil (Nigella Sativa Oil)
Mix the Apple Cider Vinegar with the ground Black Seeds and let the mixture steep for 6 to 7 hours.
Filter the mixture through cheesecloth and let the solution sit for a day while the sediment settles at the bottom.
Carefully pour out the liquid on top. Mix the remaining sediment in a 1:1 ratio with Black Seed Oil.
Then heat the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes and mix thoroughly.
Store in a glass jar in the refrigerator.
Apply the cream several times a day to the affected skin area.
The cream is most effective when it is applied before going to bed or after a facial steam bath.
