Essential Oils Help Combat Acne and Scarring

Acne is an inflammatory skin disorder caused by an over-production of sebum, an oily substance that is secreted by the sebaceous glands in the hair follicles. Essential oils can play an very important role in acne treatment because they are soluble through lipids in the skin and are easily absorbed.
Acne medications on the market often contain acids and chemicals that dry the skin and cause rashes, redness and peeling. Essential oils provide a gentle and inexpensive way of treating acne, clearing infections and healing acne scarring. Known for their antiseptic, antibacterial and calming properties, essential oils can help to clear acne outbreaks and promote healing.
