Why Silver In Your Skincare Can Reduce Spots

Why Silver In Your Skincare Can Reduce Spots

Silver has been hailed as a healing saviour for centuries, and more and more we’re seeing it as a staple ingredient in cutting edge skincare. Here, we’ve teamed up with Omorovicza to reveal exactly how it can benefit your complexion…

The Anti-Inflammatory Benefits Are Well-Documented 

Not only is it a great anti-bacterial treatment, it has some impressive anti-inflammatory benefits as well, which is why it’s become widely relied on as a remedy for acne, rosacea and inflamed skin in general. It’s beneficial as a preventative measure as well – by using silver before a breakout, you’re pre-treating the skin with anti-bacterial ingredients to ward off any nastiness from arriving on the skin, which in turn prevents future breakouts. Because silver doesn’t contain anything potent that’s affected by UV (like vitamin A or C), colloidal silver is also safe to use topically both during the day and at night.

It’s Said To Be As Effective As Acne Antibiotics

It has a history of being linked to curing acne with one study finding that silver was as effective as the topical antibiotic clindamycin. If you’re looking to target acne or want to brighten uneven skin tone specifically, try Omorovicza’s Silver Skin Saviour Mask. Combined with salicylic and glycolic acid, it’s the perfect blend for stopping spots and breakouts in their tracks, with 89% of users claiming their imperfections appeared reduced after just two uses. The addition of niacinamide (vitamin B3) also means skin gets a brightening boost as it gets to work refining and controlling sebum production for a smooth, healthy complexion.

Colloidal Silver Is A Great Anti-Bacterial Treatment 

Said to be a broad-spectrum antibiotic with antiseptic properties, colloidal silver is even used by medical professionals in the NHS today for wound dressings and, unlike some antibiotics, it hasn’t been linked to drug resistance. This, teamed with silver’s bacteria-fighting properties means it’s ideal for treating spots and acne in the long-term. How? The silver attaches itself to the proteins on the cellular wall of the bacteria and then penetrate inside to disrupt the bacteria, ultimately getting rid of and breaking it up. Try a product like Omorovicza’s brand-new Silver Skin Tonic and Skin Lotion. The tonic can be used post-cleanse to clarify the skin and smooth out any bumps, redness or uneven tone with vitamin B3 and exfoliating salicylic acid. As for the lotion, the silky formula pairs both silver and zinc to protect against pollution and environmental stress while the hyaluronic acid keeps skin hydrated, healthy and feeling smoother despite zapping up spots and shrinking pores. 

Silver Is Much Gentler Than Other Skincare Ingredients

Common acne and inflammatory treatments tend to dehydrate the skin with astringent, harsh ingredients in order to shrink the problem. While this works in the short-term, over time it can damage the appearance of the skin by creating an uneven tone. Unlike these harsher treatments, silver is an excellent alternative treatment, for not only those with acne, but also anyone with a sensitive skin type. Unlike retinol and other acids and peels, colloidal silver is much gentler and doesn’t destroy the natural flora of your skin. It also decreases the irritating effects caused by oxidative stress and promotes skin’s elasticity.
