Organic Lavender Essential Oil
Using an oil to fight acne sounds unusual although acne often flares up when your skin does not have enough oil. Dry skin can start to overproduce sebum (your skin’s natural oil) to compensate, leading to clogged pores & acne formation. Lavender oil not only moisturizes skin but is also antibacterial & can kill bacteria that penetrate your pores. That makes lavender oil perfect for preventing & also healing acne.
Lavender oil actually does a wonderful job at balancing your skin’s moisture barrier, so it isn’t too oily or dry so perfect for all skin combinations. Lavender oil isn’t just soothing for your mind, it offers the same benefits for your skin & can be used to help reduce redness, blotchy patches & acne scarring.
Lavender oil’s anti-inflammatory properties make it great for soothing & healing skin that is irritated or reddened from the sun, insect bites or bacteria. Lavender oil is used to clean wounds, treat burns & other skin injuries & its antiseptic properties also help skin to heal faster, while fighting & preventing further infection.
Lavender oil is a potent source of antioxidants & other beneficial phytochemicals that fight free radical damage - caused by environmental stressors like the sun & pollution. That means the antioxidants in lavender oil can help protect against wrinkles, fine lines & dark age spots. It has the ability to lessen acne, help lighten skin, reduce wrinkles, kill bacteria & this can prevent & heal acne breakouts.
It unclogs pores & reduces inflammation & can also help treat eczema. When eczema strikes, your skin gets dry, itchy, and scaly which can be mild or chronic & in multiple locations. Since lavender has antifungal properties & reduces inflammation it can help to keep eczema at bay.
Lavender oil can aid in skin lightening since it reduces inflammation & can also reduce discoloration, including dark spots. It can help lessen blotchiness, redness & hyperpigmentation on your skin. Free radicals are partly responsible for fine lines & wrinkles on the face & lavender oil is full of antioxidants which help protect you from the free radicals. Inflammation can also be treated with lavender oil, the oil’s pain-relieving & numbing effects help soothe the inflammation & the beta-caryophyllene in the oil also acts as a natural anti-inflammatory.
If you have a burn, cut, or another wound, lavender oil may help speed up the wound-healing process as lavender oil promotes the healing of skin tissue.
