Using essential has become widely popular not only in its ability to help us unwind, but also to heal certain issues such as colds and arthritis. It can also be used to treat skin imperfections.
The following essential oils can all be used if you have acne, so we’re going over all their benefits and how to use them.
Tea tree oil
Tea tree oil is very effective against even the most stubborn acne. It contains antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce any redness and inflammation, consequently speeding up the drying and healing process.
This miracle essential oil also contains anti-fungal properties, which are also proven to be effective against any small bumps under your skin.
Tea tree essential oil tends to be concentrated and harsh on the skin, so it’s vital to dilute it a little. Try adding a few drops of coconut oil and tea tree oil to a small piece of cotton and apply it to the affected area.
Lavender oil is a soothing and gentle oil on the skin. It helps moisturize your skin while getting rid of any scarring and fine lines. This is very important against acne because the previous pimple causes most of the blemishes and scars on your face, so this is a great way to achieve soft and clear skin.
Use a few drops of lavender oil on any affected area, or you can mix it in with some coconut or jojoba oil and massage your entire face for even deeper hydration.
Rosemary oil is a very fragrant oil used heavily to treat acne. And just like tea tree oil, it contains concentrated amounts of antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Meaning it helps reduce any redness and dry out pimples faster and much safer than any other harsh chemicals.
Rosemary oil is very soothing to the skin and is a perfect way to get rid of any excess sebum in your skin that’s causing blackheads and acne. Use it all over your face as a moisturizer.
Lemongrass oil is a very detoxifying to your skin cells. It draws out any impurities. It destroys any unhealthy dead skin cells to fight acne and brighten up any spots caused by acne or scarring. It also contains vitamins that help your skin regenerate.
Another great thing about lemongrass essential oil is that it helps reduce any excess oil on the skin and minimizes the appearance of pores. You can use it daily on your face as a moisturizer or apply it to affected areas with a cotton ball.
Oregano essential oil contains one of the most potent antiseptics containing a natural compound called phenol. Given the strong concentration of this ingredient, use oregano oil only on affected areas and preferably mixed with another carrier such as olive oil or coconut oil.
Chamomile oil is a very soothing oil that can be used to calm your skin and reduce any acne and dark spots. The best way to use it is by applying it every day on your face, preferably after a shower for even better results.
