One of the primary compounds found in Milk Thistle is Silymarin. Silymarin is great because it has great antioxidant properties that may help get rid of acne by fighting the free radicals that contribute to acne formation. The oral antioxidant such as milk thistle extracts are also highly absorbable into the system and tackles acne effectively.
