I have oily/combination skin and have always suffered from hormone and stress related outbreaks especially on my t-zone. Some of the most toxic ingredients can be found in department and drugstore acne products. The think dirty app. is a great resource if you would like to see exactly what toxins are hiding in your products!
MAY LINDSTROM PROBLEM SOLVER
This product wins my universal award for the acne and skin category. It was my first green beauty acne purchase and I was not disappointed. This is the best problem solver to clear your skin in general. I purchased mine from Citrine Natural Beauty Bar with code organicbunny10 to save at checkout! I also purchased the May Lindstrom bowl and brush and all three will seriously last me a lifetime.

LAUREL BLEMISH TREATMENT
And I love to save the best for last. The Laurel Blemish Treatment wins my best all around award. It is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types and is nourishing for not only your skin but your mind body and soul! I love reaching for this and dabbing a little on my problem areas after cleansing and nourishing with an oil.
DESCRIPTION & INGREDIENTS:
– All skin types
– 100% Whole Plant Organic
– 7 Beneficial Active Ingredients
Our Blemish Treatment is a very unique three in one product, which is designed to address acne and breakouts in several different ways: by effectively healing and treating the breakout, by reducing stress, and by energetically supporting self concern. All plants were carefully chosen to address inflammation, create a healthy flora/microbe balance, and prevent scarring.
This medicinal Blemish Treatment packs a powerful punch, starting with its two base oils of Black Cumin and Tamanu – two oils historically and clinically used for their treatment of acne and inflammation – both with zero tolerance for an imbalanced microbiome. The essential oils in this treatment not only physically stop breakouts in their tracks, like Thyme which has been proven to be more effective at treating acne than Benzoyl Peroxide without harming healthy skin flora, but also aromatically reduce stress levels and encourage the pituitary gland to balance hormone states throughout the body. Stress affects all hormone levels, and it is essential to manage stress fin order to maintain healthy skin. The other essential oils in this formula, Lavender and Moroccan Blue Chamomile will gently lull you into a state of calm, as well as calm your skin, and Helichrysum is a powerful scar reducer which will also help prevent breakouts in the first place, making a more timely impression on your skin. Lastly, it’s important to energetically embrace any challenges you (or your skin) are currently facing. We chose plants that encourage self love and self acceptance throughout the healing process.
