Are you fighting acne and tired of spending a bunch of money on fancy products that don’t work?

Try out these three amazing essential oils for a natural and effective way to treat acne!

3 Acne Fighting Remedies

#1. Tea Tree Essential Oil

Tea tree oil, a.k.a melaleuca, is one of the first that comes to mind when compiling an anti-acne list. Because it is extremely antifungal, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory it wipes out all the nasty things that build up on the skin’s surface and within the pores while further reducing redness and irritation and leaving skin purified and nourished. Tea tree oil can be effective as a spot-reduction treatment by combining a few drops with a carrier oil such as coconut or jojoba and applying directly to pimples and irritated areas. It’s also a great addition to a daily facial cleanser with other skin-nourishing ingredients such as honey and coconut oil.

Tea Tree Honey Face Wash

  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil or jojoba
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • ½ teaspoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 3 – 5 drops of tea tree essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and stir until well blended. Apply to damp skin and gently massage for 2-3 minutes. Rinse with warm water and again with cool water then pat dry.

#2. Helichrysum Essential Oil

Hilychrysum essential oil comes from the golden helichrysum flower native to the Mediterranean region. The dried flower and leaves have been used for centuries medicinally and topically to treat a variety of ailments including coughs, infections, stomachaches, wound healing, skin inflammation, and acne. Helichrysum’s concentrated antioxidant content along with being an antibacterial make it a powerful, natural tool for fighting and further preventing acne. And, unlike other ingredients typically found in acne-fighting products, helichrysum works without drying out the skin.
