Sometimes, however, it is necessary for us to seek other natural means in order to really clear up our problem skin. One of the most effective home remedies for acne that you can use on yourself comes in the form of aromatherapy, essential oils are very potent in their action on the skin.

It is said that essential oils are useful to help us relax and release toxins to a certain extent.  This can certainly go a long way in helping us to get rid of our problem skin, particularly because stress and toxins play a large role in acne.  If we are able to get our stress under control, we will be able to get our skin under control.  Detoxing the body is also an excellent way to clear up our skin.  There are other ways, however, that aromatherapy may help your problem skin that might surprise you.

Many of the oils that are used in aromatherapy can also be applied directly to the skin in order to help clear it.  A good example of this is lavender, and bergamot two of the most common aromatherapy oils that are used for pimples.  Even though they are renowned for their wonderful smell, they also have some antiseptic properties that are excellent for use on problem skin.  Many people add a little bit of lavender or bergamot into their daily skin cleaning regimen in order to help clear the problem, for optimum results you could use a combination of the two.

Several other aromatherapy oils can also be used on the skin but you need to use a little bit of caution that you are not overdoing it.  Oils such as Jasmine, myrrh and sandalwood are excellent for skin problems and they have antibacterial or antiseptic properties, it helps to remember with essential oils a little bit really does go a long way, because they are so concentrated. Just make sure that you are diluting the stronger oils so that they don’t dry your skin out too much.
