Here at Cheeky Complexion, we went head first into the essential oil craze! Well it’s been around for a while, but we’ve seen a surge in the beauty industry as of late. We were holistically fixing everything we had going on with oils – we were addressing headaches, allergies, muscle pain and even acne. We quickly found out that applying lavender to your face works wonders on those darn zits!
Let’s say you’re tired of using harsh chemicals on your face and just want to treat or eliminate or lessen acne problems on your own, then we’ve got you covered.
Try using a couple droplets of DoTerra Lavender Oil to soothe your damaged skin. In order to use this oil to treat your acne, you must first dilute it. Mix 1 to 4 drops of lavender into 1 tbsp. of a base oil like olive oil or almond oil. Add that mixture to a cotton swab and dab it on the irritated parts of your skin. We like to leave it on overnight and wake up blemish free. Plus, lavender helps you sleep better so it’s a win, win!
After using lavender oil on a regular basis, you will notice that it will help reduce the appearance of breakouts and can rejuvenate the skin. Just last night I had a zit sprouting and I applied my concoction and wa lah it was gone when I woke up! Warning: pretty please do not drink lavender oil & seek medical advice in cases of extreme acne or open and infected sores.
