Can Bergamot Oil Help Acne?

Can bergamot oil help acne? For those of us with blemish-prone skin, facial products containing oil tend to send us running in the opposite direction. My skin is already oily, and I don’t want to clog my pores with a greasy product.

Bergamot Dry Oil Combats Oily Skin

HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil is different. It is not heavy oil that sits on top of your skin. It is actually a dry oil, meaning it sinks directly into the skin to heal and balance from below the surface. This lightweight moisturizer is non-comedogenic, meaning it does not clog pores (and we all know clogged pores can lead to more pimples!).  A powerful combination of grape seed, jojoba, calendula, and bergamot oil help acne, heal scars, and cure minor skin irritations while gently moisturizing and balancing the skin.

Lightweight Moisturizer

Not only is Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil a great anti-acne defense, it is also a lightweight moisturizer. On clean, dry skin, gently massage a small amount on your face and neck (a little goes a long way). Your skin will be soothed and hydrated – it is the perfect daily moisturizer for normal to oily skin.

I have to admit, I was a skeptic myself when I first looked into using bergamot oil, but I gave it a try and found it to be one of the best solutions for my blemish-prone skin. I even use it at night to help prevent future breakouts! This stuff is liquid anti-acne gold.

Know Your Skin Type

HollyBeth Luxury Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer

 

Many factors play a role in the condition of your skin, including hormones, climate, and age. It is important to recognize the state of your skin in order to find the right products to restore balance.

Dry Skin

Skin feeling dehydrated, tight, and flakey? You are experiencing dry skin, which indicates a lack of moisture. Overexposure to cold or heat, excess use of cleansing products, or a natural result of aging can leave your skin dehydrated. Go for hydrating cleansers and thicker moisturizers, while avoiding heavy toners and chemical-based products that zap oil production and dry out the skin.

Check out HollyBeth Organics’ Rose Geranium Face Moisturizer, the perfect face hydrator for those in need of extra moisture.

Oily Skin

Prone to a shiny t-zone area? Your body is over-producing sebum, on oily substance made by your sebaceous glands to protect against dryness. Hormone changes or exposure to heat may be responsible for oily skin. Go for lightweight products that won’t clog pores and natural ingredients like grapeseed that help regulate oil production. Try to avoid over-cleansing, as this can dry out the skin, encouraging your sebaceous glands to secrete more oil to compensate for the loss of moisture.

Try HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil, a lightweight dry oil that quickly absorbs into the skin to restore balance and reduce oiliness – its antiseptic properties help fight acne as well!

Sensitive Skin

Notice your skin gets splotchy, irritated, or itchy when you change your beauty routine or experience a new environment? You may have sensitive skin, which can be caused by an allergy or reaction to extreme weather. Keep track of what irritates you and steer clear of products with foreign ingredients. Go for organic products with natural ingredients and keep it simple.

Use a cleanser like HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Foaming Cleanser. It is gentle on skin while combating oil and removing makeup (and like all HollyBeth Organics products, it is 100% USDA Certified Organic!).

Most of us will experience all of these skin conditions, so make sure to maintain balance with the help of the right products.

The Quest for Clear Skin

Skincare products for treating Acne

 

The Path to Clear Skin

I figured at my age acne was a thing of the past, and that one of the perks of getting older would be saying goodbye to breakouts forever. Wrong! At age thirty-something, I still have to deal with random pimples popping up; however, with age comes wisdom, and in all my years of battling blemishes, I’ve come to discover less is more and natural is better.

In My Teenage Years

Chemical-based products promising fast results dominated my bathroom shelves. I wanted that zit gone as fast as possible, so I piled on the benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid, horribly drying out my skin, even badly burning it at times. My skin never reached a healthy balance, for it was in a damaging cycle of oily, broken out, then severely dry, due to my over-use of harsh drug store products.

As I Approached My Twenties

I decided to let the professionals give it try. Upon the orders of my Dermatologist, a strict regimen of prescription-strength topicals and anti-biotics would be the best course of action to conquer my acne. Though both solutions provided semi-successful results, my doctor required routine blood tests and visits to make sure there were no damaging side effects from the treatment. Kind of a scary give and take, right? I knew this would only be a short-term solution.

Now In My Thirties

I’m focusing on long-term, healthy solutions to skincare. Heavy chemicals and medications were only suppressing my skin’s needs, not nourishing them! I discovered all-natural, organic products brought my skin back to life, clearing away my blemishes and giving me radiant skin. Finally, I don’t have to dry out my skin to have a clear, glowing complexion, thanks to HollyBeth Organics’ blemish-fighting Marigold Face Kit.

Each Marigold Face Kit comes with HollyBeth Organics’ Marigold Foaming Cleanser, Marigold Toner, and Marigold Bergamot Dry Oil. Marigold /Calendula oil’s antibacterial, healing properties calm acne and skin irritations with Vitamin A compounds. These Calendula oil-based skin solutions cleanse and balance the skin with powerful anti-oxidants and detoxifying essential oils such as sandalwood, grapefruit, and lavender. Your skin will find perfect balance, feeling soothed and refreshed while staying moisturized, clean, and protected.

Trust me, I’ve been on the clear skin quest for decades. Let go of chemicals and embrace organic. Your skin will thank you!
