The chemicals in the oil have been proven to contain antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory agents which makes it a strong anti-acne substance.

It wouldn’t be a bad idea to incorporate lavender oil into your daily beauty regimen if getting rid of acne is your goal.

These blends are also effective in make-up removal.

If you’re wondering what an all time food flavor is doing in this list, then you’re breaking a sweat over nothing. Rosemary herbs are effective in revitalizing the skin. It’s well known for its ability to reduce excess oil on skin like mine. Its anti-inflammatory properties makes it an excellent treatment for redness and puffiness.

If you are like me who tries a beauty regimen for a few days and hopes to see the magic immediately and when it doesn’t show, give up. Then getting that clear skin with a soft glow is not really a priority. But if it is, please drink the cup of dedication and patience. Dedication; heed to the regular application and Patience; Wait till it works. New year is around the corner girls, so get to work.
