Aloe vera can provide skin conditioning benefits, reducing inflammation and keeping those pimples at bay due to the acne-fighting antioxidants it contains.
Witch hazel is a natural astringent. What this means is that it helps remove toxins, ultimately killing bacteria that may be hiding within the skin. It may even prevent skin cancer and provide anti-aging benefits while minimizing pimples for acne-prone skin.
Lavender oil is commonly known for reducing anxiety, emotional stress and improving sleep, but also it help restore the complexion and the skin while helping prevent acne. Contains powerful antioxidants that help slow the aging process as well as improve eczema and psoriasis symptoms. If you are going to use this ingredient don’t add tea tree.
