Your skin needs to be resolved in a way that not only effectively aims to tackle acne breakouts and pimples, but is also beneficial for yourself. If you are looking for an answer for it, maybe it’s time for you to consider using essential oils instead of chemically produced acne medications.

Treating Mild Acne Caused by Bacteria
Acne caused by bacteria is an inflamed sebaceous gland and pimple due to bacteria trapped in pores. A clogged pore becomes infected with bacteria, forms a pimple which causes that small red bump with pus at its tip.
What you need:

- Frankincense. Apply a dab to healing blemishes to prevent scarring.
3. Oil Infused Facial Cleanser. Cleanse skin morning and night before bed
4. Skin Clearing Blend. Apply a small amount evenly over clean skin after showering daily.
Treating Mild Acne Caused by Hormones
Our hormones released by the glands in our endocrine system control almost all the processes in our body. These chemicals support the body’s function’s coordination – metabolism, growth and development, emotions, and mood.
Hormonal imbalance affects our metabolism, appetite, and mood levels. Even the way we manage difficult situations in our daily life and our ability to sleep are all affected. This is when we tend to have this unwanted acne caused by hormones. Did I just surprise you? Yes, you heard it right. It is not always due to the bacteria penetrating your pores. So when you’re surprised with this mild acne, here are ways on how you can treat it:
What you need:
- Clary Sage. Rub 1 drop on pulse points before bed.
- The Power Five (Lavender, Serenity, Vetiver, Cedarwood, Ylang Ylang). Try these individual oils at least 1 drop on pulse points before bed or when necessary. You can also diffuse them together with other happy and citrus oils like Bergamot, Motivate, and Grapefruit.

Treating Mild Acne Caused by Toxicity
One of the most underrated and most overlooked causes of acne is toxins.
The skin, being the largest organ in the body, can easily pick up dirt. It is the body’s first defense against the outside environment thus deserves to be treated with the utmost care. In reality, there’s no such thing as skin detox but you can protect your skin from potential environmental toxins, poor diet, excessive and harsh cleaning which are the main factors that can lead to toxin-caused acne.
Have you heard of “You are what you eat”? Diet affects not only your internal health but also the health of your skin. What you put into your body will reflect itself on your skin. Consumption of non-organic foods such as processed foods and items rich in non-organic ingredients can expose you to high levels of glyphosate and other dangerous pesticides which are absorbed by your body system.
What you need:
- Detoxification Blend Soft-Gels. Take 1 softgel with each meal.
- Detox Herbal Complex. Take 1 capsule with breakfast and dinner.
- Cellular Complex Blend. Take 1 softgel with each meal.
