How to Get Super Clear Skin
Clogged pores and breakouts on your face are a fairly common concern for people of all ages. Prescription treatments, over-the-counter face washes and medical procedures like microdermabrasion are designed to help you get clear skin, but these treatments may involve harsh chemicals and can be expensive or invasive. Natural treatments, meanwhile, can help you get clear skin fairly quickly, according to Ann Worwood, author of "The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy," and Colleen Kaye Dodt, author of "The Essential Oils Book: Creating Personal Blends for Mind & Body."
Combine ½ tsp. cananga essential oil, ½ tsp. lemon essential oil, ½ tsp. lemongrass essential oil, ½ tsp. cypress essential oil, ¼ tsp. sweet fennel essential oil, ¼ tsp. geranium essential oil, ¼ tsp. marigold essential oil and 1 cup jojoba oil in a clean jar or bottle with a tight-fitting top.
Cover the jar and shake the mixture to combine the essential oils and jojoba oil.
Pour a very small amount of the mixture onto your fingers. Gently massage the oil onto the skin for two to three minutes.
Allow the essential oil mixture to stay on your face for 15 minutes, taking care not to let it come in contact with clothes or other fabrics.
Rinse your skin with cool, clean water and wash with a gentle cleanser. Pat your skin dry with a clean towel and apply your regular moisturizer.
Use this treatment once a day in the evening before bed. Stop using the essential oil mixture if it causes any irritation or redness.
Store unused portions of the essential oil mixture in the refrigerator for 90 days. Throw the mixture away after 90 days.
