Oils That Treat Acne
One of the reasons many people are searching for alternatives to traditional acne medications is because some of the medicines contain ingredients that can cause side effects. Alternative and natural treatments offer a fast and healthy way to get rid of acne.
Although oil is usually a culprit for causing acne, it’s also widely known in medical circles that certain oils have healing properties. Many of those oils have been found to be highly effective in both treating and preventing acne outbreaks. One of those oils is Argan oil.
This oil comes from Morocco and is widely praised for its healing ability. Not only is it an antioxidant, but it also contains high levels of vitamin E, which helps the skin heal properly. Treatment methods are fairly simple. Just apply a few drops to the acne and rub it in like you would a lotion.
Another oil that’s helpful with acne is Tamanu oil. This oil comes from the tamanu tree of Asia and contains amazing properties that allow it to repair skin that’s been damaged. It stimulates the growth of new skin. Drops can be applied to the acne with the fingertips or with a cotton ball.
Emu oil is oil that comes from the Emu bird. This oil has anti-inflammatory ingredients that gets rid of the redness and swelling associated with acne. Applied directly to the acne, the oil is a moisturizing agent that fights the bacteria associated with acne outbreaks.
Remember the castor oil you took as a child? Didn’t seem like such a good thing back then, but it turns out that this oil, which comes from castor beans, is loaded with healthy benefits that fight acne. Castor oil works great as a cleanser for acne - but on top of that, it also has anti-inflammatory properties as well as the ability to help heal the skin.
Jojoba oil isn’t technically an oil - it’s a wax. But this product is great at helping the body control the oil production of the glands. Since overproduction of oil can lead to acne, this product helps keep outbreaks from occurring. It can be applied directly to the acne. All it takes is about a teaspoon of this non pore-clogging oil.
Fish oil comes from fish livers and has the valuable omega 3 acids that offer many health benefits. Fish oil can be taken as a supplement to help treat acne, but you can also buy it in a liquid form and apply it to the acne. Keep in mind, however, that some of the products do have a slight odor.
Rosehip is an oil that’s loaded with fatty acids, which help repair damaged skin. This oil also contains retinal, which is an ingredient recommended to fight acne. The bacteria fighting properties of the oil are useful in preventing the reoccurrence of acne.
Manuka oil is used to cure bacterial infections - and by applying it to an acne outbreak, it kills the bacteria that cause the acne. This oil is used to treat fungal infections or rashes, too because of its strong antibacterial properties. It can be used liberally or as a spot treatment.
