Natural Acne Spot Treatment #DIY #skincare #essentialoils -

It never fails. Right before that time of the month I get hormonal breakouts. They’re usually on my chin, but I’ll get the occasional zit on my forehead – especially when I’m stressed or don’t get enough sleep.

I’ve found that these homemade acne remedies work best in helping to prevent acne from starting, but sometimes the unavoidable happens.

I used to turn to traditional acne spot treatments with chemicals like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid. I thought I needed something harsh to get rid of the oil and dry out my pimples. Boy, was I wrong.

Oil is not the enemy when it comes to acne. In fact, oil is beneficial for the face. I’ve given up on traditional facial cleansers and now use the oil cleansing method (OCM) to “wash” my face at night. It was really tough for me to do this. I started once and gave up 3 weeks into it because I didn’t see any improvement. Then months later, I tried it again and WOW. It was worth sticking it through to about 5-6 weeks. I absolutely love the oil cleansing method now. Here’s a tutorial on the oil cleaning method and why it’s good for you. I also have a DIY face wash I use in the morning sometimes – or I just splash with water and follow with my DIY pH balancing toner.

But where’s what I learned from my oil cleaning method experiment: oil is good for the skin. In fact, there are certain oils that can help to fight acne, balance oily or combination skin, combat dry skin and pretty much help with any skin problem you might have.

For me, I wanted a natural acne spot treatment. And after some experimenting I found the PERFECT zit zapper blend that helps to both reduces acne and helps to prevent future breakouts.

Acne-Fighting Essential Oils

  • Melrose blend (Melaleuca, Niaouli, Rosemary, Clove) – disinfects acne, helps to regenerate skin and reduces inflammation. Clove and Melaleuca (tea tree) are well known for their acne-fighting properties.
  • Purification blend (Citronella, Lemongrass, Lavandin, Rosemary, Melaleuca, Myrtle) – disinfects acne and reduces inflammation. Lemongrass is an effective astringent and found in many facial cleansers, while citronella helps to fight the bacteria that lead to acne.
  • Thieves blend (Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, Rosemary) – helps to fight acne-causing bacteria to prevent breakouts and reduces acne and swelling.
  • Lavender - soothes redness, helps to heal acne scars and marks, reduces inflammation and combats excess sebum (oil) on the skin.
