For the last two years, I have taken Evening Primrose Oil, 1000 mg once a day to help balance my hormones. Then I discovered that I eradicated my monthly acne breakouts and the scars!
Here’s how Primrose Oil works:
Evening Primrose Oil plant extract comes from the seeds of a wildflower. The oil extracted from the seeds of the evening primrose flower is rich in omega-6 fatty acids, specifically, gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and linolenic acid (LA). GLA is the anti-inflammatory superstar of the omega-6 fatty acids and is present in high concentrations in Evening Primrose Oil. GLA controls the release of agents that cause an inflammatory response and is a power player in hormone regulation. It is a skin barrier, reduces moisture loss because it’s hydrating from the inside out, and produces the anti-inflammatory effects that can calm some of the lesions and cysts associated with acne, as well as the redness. The abundance of Omega-6 fatty acids in evening primrose help to adjust the amounts of particular hormones in your body, adjusting your tendency toward acne.
Evening primrose oil contains essential fatty acids that aid skin repair, and it may also inhibit specific enzymes in the skin that break down collagen, possibly retarding wrinkle formation. 🙌🏼
Please note GLA can affect certain medications like blood thinners, high blood pressure medicine, and antidepressants, so it’s best to check with your doctor before you give it a try.
Sending relaxing Saturday vibes! 💋
