Home solutions to get rid of acne pimples

Clay and essential oil mask

For a mask that combines the purifying action of green clay with the astringent and sebum-regulating action of essential oils, mix until a smooth paste is obtained: 2 tablespoons green clay, 2 tablespoons water, 5 drops lavender EO, 5 drops tea tree EO, 1 tablespoon sweet almond vegetable oil. Apply to skin, leave on for about ten minutes and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water.

A purifying blend of essential oils.

In a 30 ml bottle, mix 1 ml Geraniol Thyme EO, 1 ml Borneol Thyme EO, 1 ml Rose Geranium EO, 1 ml Palmarosa EO. Complete with rose hip vegetable oil from Chile. Apply this mixture to pimples with a brush or Q-tip twice daily.

Fumigation of clean skin

Boil ½ liter of water. Remove from heat and add 2 drops of True Lavender EO, 1 drop of Lavandin Super EO, 1 drop of Tea Tree EO, 1 drop of Saro EO, 1/2 juice of lemon. Place a towel over your head and spray for 5 minutes, then dry your face thoroughly.

Express solutions for pimples

  • On a “spot,” apply a pure drop of tea tree EO for antibacterial action.
  • On sensitive skin, dilute tea tree oil in a little vegetable oil.
  • On an infected pimple, try lavender aspic EO, anti-inflammatory and healing, at the rate of 1 drop pure.
  • As a background treatment, add a drop of EO anti-acne to your day cream. Tea tree is the best known, but you can also try rose geranium, astringent and antiseptic with a pleasant floral scent, or palmarosa.

Extra tips

After makeup removal and before moisturizing, apply a few sprays of real lavender or rose geranium hydrolate for purifying action and a pleasant cleansing sensation. As for phytotherapy, we rely on burdock root or pansy to regulate sebum secretion. Take in vials, capsules or herbal teas, 2 to 3 times a day.
