Essential Oils for Teens

Having acne sucks. People stare at your zits instead of paying attention to you and what you have to say. Even if your acne isn't getting bad attention, you're feeling all insecure about it. You've even skipped out on fun and important events or talking to people because you're paranoid. You're tired of spending money on all kinds of acne medicines, lotions, skin care and other products that promise they'll zap your acne problems away. But none of them work. 

While essential oils are mainly used for mental health, they can also be used to help fight off embarrassing, painful acne. The benefits of essential oils can eliminate current acne and keep your skin beautiful and healthy. Your skin is sensitive to environmental changes, stress, chemicals in products and oily buildup that can lead to dreadful acne. Some essential oils have the ability to fight off acne breakouts. Some people take medication to fight off acne without knowing their side effects plus the chemicals in them contributes to the unhealthy skin. Using essential oils is a way to naturally remove acne and keep your skin clear.

The word "oil" is deceiving as essential oils are non greasy, so they will not cause a buildup and clog your pores. They will do quite the contrary. In fact, using them on acne are good ways to spot treat existing acne without using harsh treatments. The list below is several essential oils that will help you fight acne, remove blemishes, tighten small premature wrinkles and help balance hormones (which are a big factor in acne).
