Acne can make us feel self conscious. You feel uncomfortable taking pictures or use loads of make up to cover it up, causing more acne in the long run. I am constantly battling with acne. I have to change my skincare regimen and it works for a bit but it seems my body grows a tolerance to the treatments. I have gone to numerous dermatologists. Some prescribe the same strong, over-drying medications that make you avoid sunlight or the side effects can be sun spots or skin discoloration, or they tell me about steroid injections which cause temporary results.
I eat a predominantly clean diet but my issue is my stress and sleep management. I am currently working as a mid-shift RN in the Emergency Department so my sleep schedule can be sporadic. So changing my lifestyle factors can be hard at this time. As I am sure it will be hard for all of us to do as well. Lately, I have been switching oils throughout the week and have noticed a difference. All of these oils are great for inflammation and as an anti-septic or anti-bacterial for future breakouts.
Can be used as a spot treatment or around face without dilution.
Can be used as a spot treatment or around face without dilution. I also combine both Frankincense and Tea tree for a stronger effect.
Must be diluted with a carrier oil like Jojaba or Coconut oil, it will burn your face like a chemical peel if you don’t. ( I have learned through experience). Or you can use it as a spot treatment with a Q-tip.
Using these oils will help get your skin looking better, even if you can’t change the lifestyle factors. Everybody does have different skin types so I do recommend that you use these essential oils as spot treatment and then use it around entire face once you know how you will react to it.
