If the thought of putting oil on your face scares you, take a deep breath! Putting a thin layer of coconut and lavender oil on your skin won’t make it oilier — these are beneficial oils that may actually help to soothe and control your skin’s sebum production. Give it a try, you won’t be sorry!
You could also apply a tiny bit of the oil directly to blemishes, but make sure your skin isn’t sensitive to it first before going this route.
Lavender essential oil is anti-inflammatory. It can thus help to reduce redness, blotching and ruddiness of the skin, helping to restore your bright, natural skin tone. When used regularly, this oil may also help to reduce dark age spots and other types of skin discolorations.
Lavender essential oil may also help to lighten skin with hyperpigmentation, especially if the skin is oily. Because of the soothing, balancing nature of lavender, it’s a good candidate to ask a natural health professional you trust about.
