Essential Oils for Acne Scars – Part 2
I have received so much positive feedback from my first blog post about Acne Scars, that I realized need to write another article immediately because here’s the thing:
The best way to use essential oils and other natural healthcare solutions is to incorporate them into your lifestyle proactively. Yes, essential oils are awesome! And yes, essential oils can help with acne scars! But let’s be honest: Would it be so much better if we simply skipped over the need to deal with acne scars by avoiding the whole acne stage entirely? Of course it would be!
I don’t want to do a disservice to the oils by only talking about their uses in reaction to different healthcare concerns we all want to address. So today, I’m going to talk about dōTERRA’s top 3 natural solutions for acne prevention and overall skin health!
Product 1: HD Clear Facial Kit
The HD Clear Facial Kit is a group of products that has been specifically created by dōTERRA to improve your skin health and promote a healthy complexion. HD Clear combines CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils and plant extracts to help support smooth, clear skin. HD Clear is a three-step system that works synergistically, with each product building on the next to thoroughly cleanse and purify the skin, and deliver optimal hydration for a balanced moisture level. Made with pure plant extracts, the ingredients in HD Clear are gentle and calming to the skin, but powerfully effective. Using HD Clear every day will help reduce the appearance of blemishes; promote a clear, healthy complexion; and soothe the skin.
Now, HD Clear provides a natural solution for skin problems of all ages. Although signs of problem skin may begin in the early teens, it affects individuals of all ages, both physically and emotionally. Many individuals experience skin issues for years, trying numerous products, harsh chemicals, and abrasive treatments to obtain clear skin (I’m sure I speak for all of us when I say: I’ve been there!). So basically, dōTERRA has created a better way to address problem skin issues at their core—naturally and effectively.
Product 2: Verage Skincare Line
Okay, here’s the reality of the situation: this product by dōTERRA is simply too wonderful to ignore! Ladies and gentlemen, my fellow sufferers of acne and my dear survivors with scars, please allow me to introduce you to your new best friend, otherwise known as dōTERRA’s Verage Skincare Line!
My daughters and I are absolutely in love with this new(ish) product from dōTERRA! It has done wonders for my skin, and it has helped my daughters tremendously. My daughters struggle with eczema and have acne outbreaks from time to time. Not only does the Verage Skincare Line use all three of the essential oils outlined in our last article—Helichrysum, Melaleuca, and Lavender—but it also incorporates some of the other key essential oils for acne prevention and fixing resulting skin blemishes, including Frankincense, Sandalwood, Juniper Berry, Ylang Ylang, and Jasmine (which is an essential oil that isn’t even available for purchase under normal circumstances!!).
According to the dōTERRA website:
“Verage is an exclusive system of natural skin care products that nourish and hydrate skin and reduce the visible signs of aging. The advanced plant technology used in Verage promotes the appearance of an optimal lipid balance—the same balance found in healthy, youthful-looking skin.”
The website also states:
“Each product in the Verage system contains plant extracts that have been extensively researched and shown to promote youthful-looking skin. Verage has been scientifically formulated to provide a natural and efficacious system that brings skin back to life. Using Verage daily will promote a smooth, resilient, glowing complexion.”
If you are someone who wants to use essential oils for acne prevention or scars, or if you are someone who struggles with skin heath in general, I implore you to try the Verage Skincare Line, if only for a month or two. Believe me: you will see and feel the difference! And if you want a full list of the ingredients that are included in the Verage Skincare Line, you can click here for more information.
Product 3: Correct X Essential Ointment
This last product just may be my daughter’s favourite dōTERRA product of all time (although GX Assist, PB Assist, and ClaryCalm are all tied for first place too!). As someone who has struggled with skin conditions for most of her life, my daughter has searched high and low for natural solutions for skin problems. She has also tried dozens and dozens and dozens of different solutions to help make her skin clear. So believe me: the fact that she recommends Correct X as the best solution that she has found thus far (with the exception of changing your diet—‘cause gut health is key), her recommendation is very well informed!
Basically, Correct-X is a multi-purpose, all-natural ointment that helps clean and soothe skin that is in distress. Frankincense, Helichrysum, Melaleuca, Cedarwood, and Lavender—all CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® essential oils known to help assist in soothing skin irritations, as I mentioned in my last article—form the base of dōTERRA’s Correct-X ointment. Correct-X provides a moisture barrier that helps protect while simultaneously soothing and hydrating the skin. This petroleum-free, preservative-free ointment absorbs quickly and is gentle and non-irritating, making it ideal for sensitive skin.
Okay, so here’s the summary:
The HD Clear Facial Kit, Verage Skincare Line, and Correct X Essential Ointment products are legitimately the best natural solutions for skin problems that I know of. I would suggest that you try each of them as soon as possible. They are nothing short of life-changing (or skin-changing, whichever you prefer)!
You don’t have to, of course. You can continue searching through the endless aisles of skin creams at your local drugstore. You can continue trying to pronounce “Hydroquinone” and “dimethylaminoethanol” if you like. You can continue overlooking the fact that most skin creams in your average store contain formaldehyde, parabens, coal-tar dyes, sodium laureth sulfate/sodium lauryl sulfate, triclosan, toluene, and phthalates. Or you can choose to stop using toxic creams, empower yourself through natural means, and grab some essential oils products to improve your skin health!
The choice is yours – choose wisely. Stay safe and toxin-free, everyone!
