Of the many ailments that afflict the human race, acne is one of the things that never quite disappears completely. We've discovered that including ingredients like salicylic acid into our regimes helps the condition, but recently experts have discovered that sulphur may just be what could eliminate acne from our troubles.

Believe it or not, that mineral that stinks of rotten eggs may just be the missing ingredient from your acne treatment regime, according to experts.

What benefits sulphur has on skin


The yellow mineral harnesses many benefits including anti-inflammatory properties that help to reduces swelling and redness of blemishes and breakouts.

Soothe and nourish your skin with ilike organic skin care sulphuric whipped moisturizer. The fast-absorbing moisturizer also helps to defend against environmental aggressors while peppermint oil soothes and invigorates the skin for long-lasting comfort.



This strange ingredient wouldn't be as amazing as it claims to be if it didn't house the ability to kill and ward off harmful bacteria that causes acne and breakouts. Sulphur clears the pores of acne-causing bacteria and prevents the development of new bacteria on the skin's surface, which prevents new blemishes from manifesting on your skin.


Besides its ability to target acne, the aromatically unappealing ingredient also has exfoliating benefits on the skin. The natural exfoliant peels away the surface layer of the skin, leaving a fresh, untainted layer of skin on the surface. ARCONA Tea Tree Mask is a purifying mask that works to decongest, refine, and diminish the look of pores as well as exfoliate and rejuvenate your complexion.

The sulphur-infused face mask works to detoxify and reduce breakouts, while allantoin and lavender heal and calm the skin.

Sulphur can be an aggressive agent for sensitive skin types and on top of that, it's putrid scent makes it an easy target to exclude on the list of ingredients in many skincare products. So, before you start using a sulphur-infused product, consult your dermatologist to make sure it is the right treatment for you.
