Naturally clear skin.
So glad you made it here. Now is where we dive into the good stuff. Some stuff you may have known about, and hopefully some stuff you didn't. Also, we're gonna give you product recommendations for each ingredient we list, just in case you're not the DIY type.
Ylang Ylang is a floral essential oil that must be diluted for your skincare routine (down to like less than 1%) but is so great for acne. This essential oil has natural sebum balancing properties which can help for those of us with oily skin or buildup due to excess oils. Also an antiseptic, so it can help target those already existing spots.
The sunscreen? Yes, but less sun protection and more acne prevention. Zinc is a natural astringent that acts on stubborn spots and dries them out. Dabbing some zinc on an inflamed spot (or your whole face) can soothe those bumps and dry up the extra oil that is causing the breakout. The problem is, zinc typically leaves a white-cast on your face, hence the reason sunscreens are always so annoying. So, your best bet is using it as a spot treatment or a face mask regularly to attack those spots.

This is basically the all natural version of Salicylic Acid. White Willow produces salicin, a naturally occurring component that is then taken and put through the lab to be created into Salicylic Acid. Though not as powerful as the drugstore counterpart, White Willow Bark is high in salicin which gives it properties similar to that of Salicylic Acid. A micro-exfoliant, White Willow Bark clears pores and lightens dark spots without physical exfoliation.

An essential oil with anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties that help to soothe and clean up acne spots. Lavender oil's high antiseptic properties stop the growth of skin bacteria right in its tracks. So, not only will you relax with this super soothing essential oil, but you can relax knowing that your acne is gently being put to rest. This is yet another essential oil that can regulate the over production of sebum to prevent acne from forming.
Now this one isn't so great for acne itself, but those post-acne marks? Consider them dealt with. Think of vitamin C as a booster for your skin's metabolism. This ingredient is going to help fade your dark spots and uneven skin tone so fast. It also slows the production of melanin to prevent future dark spots.
