Capsicum Cream

Google searches for ‘Capsicum Cream’ are up by 110%, and it’s not hard to see why.

Far more than just a culinary ingredient, capsicum addresses various skincare concerns, from ageing to acne, resulting in a healthier, more radiant complexion. It’s the skincare superhero you never knew you needed.

We spoke to Cigdem Kemal-Yilmaz, Chemical Engineer and Founder of  Skin Masterclass for her take on how to add a kick to your skincare routine with Capsicum.

  1. Turn Back Time:

“Capsicum Fruit Extract is derived from Cayenne Pepper which has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties which target common skin concerns such as ageing and uneven skin tone or texture. Its spicy nature additionally stimulates blood circulation and helps to detoxify skin, leading to a youthful and healthy-looking complexion. Cayenne Pepper is also a good source of carotenoids, flavonoids and vitamins including Vitamin A which makes Cayenne Pepper extract a great ingredient to look out for when selecting products for your anti-ageing skincare routine. This is because Vitamin A increases the rate of new skin cell formation and accelerates collagen production.”

  1. The Sizzling Solution To Acne

“Apart from its antiaging effects, Cayenne Pepper shows anti-microbial activity, thus, can be useful to fight acne and other skin impurities. Capsicum also possesses anti-inflammatory properties due to its active compound, capsaicin, which soothes inflammation, reduces the appearance of blemishes or redness, and promotes skin healing.”

  1. Dull Skin Be Gone

“The Vitamin C found within capsicum is renowned for its skin-brightening and firming properties. The Vitamin E in capsicum contributes to nourishing the skin and fortifying the skin’s natural barrier against environmental stressors. Together, they synergise to promote collagen synthesis, fade hyperpigmentation, and bolster skin radiance for an overall improved skin tone and texture.”
