How To Use Colloidal Silver For Acne

Acne is well-known for its unaesthetic and occasionally distressing external symptomatology that can also result in people’s bad psychology and mental health issues.

While there are many methods experts use to treat people’s acne and help them live an acne-free life, colloidal silver is not something everyone knows how to use.

How To Use Colloidal Silver For Acne

In this article, we will be looking into how colloidal silver can be used to treat acne and let you in on the best ways to employ it to get rid of those unwanted spots on your face.

So, if you have tried many things that haven’t worked, keep reading because you are getting a step closer to what could be your ideal product.

What Is The Usual Method For Treating Acne?

From people who try to fight their own acne to professionals, everyone will tell you how challenging finding and selecting the right skincare regimen is.

To manage the most persistent acne scars, proper therapies often include strong active compounds, in-person interventions with a professional, supplements, as well as prescribed drugs like spironolactone and Accutane.

However, ingredients that fight acne, such as retinol and benzoyl peroxide, can leave your skin dry, corrode the epidermis, and disrupt its beneficial microflora composition of it.

Such ingredients eventually weaken your skin’s natural defenses against pathogen microorganisms, and that is why you should start using rather natural and simpler solutions such as colloidal silver.

What Do People Use Colloidal Silver For?

Colloidal silver has been employed as a cleaning agent and anti-inflammatory active component for eons.

It is a small, charged silver particle with antimicrobial and antifungal properties as well.

Nowadays, people use it to treat wounds or even heal from sore throats, while its effectiveness as a water purifier has also been highlighted by many.

It is also a component used to make bandages and even special socks both of which enhance the treatment of wounds.

Furthermore, colloidal silver has been hailed by some people for its therapeutic properties against other diseases such as AIDS and cancer, and while those claims are still not 100% validated, its efficiency in treating non-life-threatening things like herpes and acne has been largely proven by several cases.

How Can Colloidal Silver Treat Acne?

First, colloidal silver could introduce more oxygen molecules into the body, decomposing viral and bacterial substances and dealing with the infection.

Not only that but it can also act preventatively and against pathogens by anchoring directly to the cellular membrane and assisting the body in repelling intruders.

As a result, colloidal silver can effectively combat the microbes and/or fungal microorganisms that irritate and infect your skin, resulting in acne.

How To Use Colloidal Silver For Acne

Even though specialists and holistic cosmetologists are diehards for colloidal silver, representing different perspectives with often contradictory therapeutic interventions, what they both agree on is that colloidal silver comes with certain precautions.

Some skin experts will tell you that topical application is a ‘must’ in the case of colloidal silver and the treatment of acne.

Indeed, there are some very unusual and rare incidents where people have developed argyria, a disorder/disease that renders the skin permanently blue because they took colloidal silver as a supplement.

However, most people using colloidal silver for other reasons do ingest it or use supplements and have never experienced any side effects.

Even in that case, you should always be aware that it could interfere with other medications, so in the case of acne, applying it to your face is the ideal way to use it.

Another thing to keep in mind, though, is that colloidal silver isn’t an ingredient that should be used in homemade skincare products, and even the one you buy should be tested first in a small spot on your skin as a preventive measure to make sure that you will not develop an allergic response, especially if the silver used is impure.

 Moreover, colloidal silver mustn’t be applied in conjunction with retinoic acid, and sunlight exposure must be limited, with nighttime application preferred over that in the daytime.

Therefore, some key points to remember when it comes to using colloidal silver are:

  • Preferably apply it every evening; you can either blob it on all of your acne spots or rub it all over a bigger area with a large number of spots.
  • Start by using approximately 10ml in the first 3 weeks of your acne treatment with colloidal silver.
  • Use colloidal silver as a topical treatment rather than ingest it or take supplements as this is more effective for treating acne.
  • Do not apply it in conjunction with other acids and ingredients like retinol, which can be found in many face creams.

Are There Any Other Things I Can Do To Help With My Acne?

Boost Your Zinc Levels

Numerous acne sufferers may be lacking zinc. Zinc is a vital mineral that our body requires for good, smooth skin and a robust immune system because it plays an important role in cell development and reproduction.

You should, however, be aware that consuming too much zinc can cause nausea, dizziness, and diarrhea.

In case you suspect you are deficient in zinc, you can boost your zinc levels by getting zinc supplements, which are sold by most pharmacists as well as in natural food stores.

Another thing you can do is increase your consumption of zinc-rich meals by including food like lean beef, seafood, spinach, pumpkin seeds (Speaking of seeds, check out How To Make Feminized Seeds With Colloidal Silver), nuts like cashews, cocoa and dark chocolate, chickpeas, as well as mushrooms.

Avoid Touching Or Picking Your Face

This seems unnecessary to even mention, but there are many people that ignore or underestimate the number of bacteria their hands carry and how those can worsen their acne or even result in infections.

Keep Your Skin Clean

To get rid of the impurities, increased oils, and dead skin cells, it really is worth spending more money on a high-quality, natural face cleanser.

We’re not talking about spending 50 dollars on a cleanser but avoid using the ones that are too cheap as they will most probably be made of unwanted chemical substances and be ineffective.

Avoid Using Rough Scrubs

Makeup should be reduced or enhanced. If you must wear make-up, consider making it as natural as you can and try to use products that do not contain any harmful chemical substances.

You will certainly benefit from buying more expensive and high-quality products that use mostly natural ingredients but always do proper research before you are about to spend your money on them as not every expensive product is made like that.

The Bottom Line

Colloidal silver can effectively treat your acne and relieve the symptoms provided that you use it right.

In this article, we have explained how you can use it topically to heal your skin and get rid of your acne spots, but we have also provided you with some important tips that can help you make the acne-fighting process more efficient.

So, now that you know the properties and use of colloidal silver for your skin and the treatment of acne, go ahead and give it a try to see for yourself how it works!
