Essential Oils 
One of the sad truths there is that pimples don’t just pest teenagers and adolescents—adults too. But with all the synthetic chemicals we put on our face in hopes that it can clear up our skin, it only managed to zap zits for a couple of days before another one appears. So when it comes to nourishing your skin and curing acne long-term, we turn to essential oils. A lot of people are terrified with the idea of putting oil on their faces, we know that—but keep in mind that there are more to oils than just for cooking, when used the right way, they can be pretty useful when it comes to treating acne too.
Lavender Oil
Lavender oil is such a gentle essential oil that also has astringent properties to keep pores clean and acne at bay. It delivers the same result as your acne treatments, and soothes your skin at the same time. With lavender oil, you won’t see the usual dryness or irritation that you would after most anti-acne creams. 
Use this way: use lavender oil (and add in a little bit of jojoba for extra moisturization properties) as your go-to essential oil for facial massages. With this power combination, you’ll achieve clear and radiant looking skin over time. 
Bergamot
Perk up your skin with this citrusy essential oil that works great as spot treatments for breakouts that also does wonders in revitalizing your skin. It works pretty much the same way as tea tree oil does as it combats excess oil from your skin and has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe redness and puffiness too.
Use this way: use this versatile oil by mixing it with coconut or olive oil. You can also use this with tea tree oil to create a powerful and personalized spot treatment for breakouts.  
Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is considered the number one acne fighting essential oil available in the market. It contains serious antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties that can help you regulate those pesky flare-ups. 
But keep this in mind: Tea tree tends to be extremely strong when applied to the skin, so opt to dilute this formula with your choice of carrier oil such as jojoba or coconut oil.
