Natural Acne Treatment - Two Unique Ways to Use Aromatherapy Oils to Cure Your Acne
If you were to casually over hear someone discussing aromatherapy, you probably would not guess that they were discussing skin care.
When most people think of aromatherapy, stress relief is the first thought that comes to mind because that is what it is most associated with.
Indeed, aromatherapy can help you relax which will in turn help your body release some of the toxins that it is holding onto.
There is a mind body connection which induces your body to hold onto toxins when you experience stress.
Your physical body has no choice but to react to the tension in your state of mind.
This is why you can experience a case of acne that inexplicably fails to respond to otherwise effective treatment.
Either the body leads the mind or the mind leads the body.
Regardless of which leads which, both must exist in a sort of harmony and move in the same direction.
Eliminating stress is fundamental to a natural approach to getting rid of acne.
Consider aromatherapy a form of mental detox that can be combined with your other detox methods to aid in ridding your body of acne causing toxins.
Surprisingly, many of the oils that are used in aromatherapy can actually be diluted and applied directly to the skin to help clear it of acne.
The oils that I am referring to are not cheap concoctions that are mixed in a lab but the more pricey oils from the actual plants.
It is important to note that while this is generally true, your skin is unique.
You should always consult a dermatologist for advice on using any type of substance on your skin.
Four oils that you should consider for your natural acne treatment regimen: Lavender Oil -for its antiseptic and anti-fungal properties.
Jasmine Oil - for its antiseptic properties.
Myrrh Oil - for its astringent, antiseptic and antimicrobial properties.
Sandalwood Oils - for its antimicrobial properties.
Not only do each of these oils smell nice, their natural properties are great for your skin when diluted to lower concentrations.
By simply adding a small amount to your daily skin regimen, you can enjoy improvements without having to add a drastic change to your normal routine.
