Acne

Acne results from an excess accumulation of dirt and oil produced in the follicles of pores of the skin.  As the pores and hit follicles become congested, bacteria begin to feed on the oil.  This leads to inflammation, infection and the formation of a pimple or a blackhead around the hair follicle.

One of the most common forms of acne occurs primarily in adolescents due to hormone imbalances that stimulate the production of oil.

Acne may be caused by a hormone imbalance, poor diet and the use of chemicals found in cleaning products, soaps, cosmetics, lotions and creams.

Stress may also play a role.  Acne and other skin problems can be a direct result of physical and emotional stress.  Essential oils are outstanding for treating acne because of their ability to dissolve oil, kill bacteria and preserve the acid mantle of the skin.
