Skin problems that plague your complexion and cause acne really try a girl's patience, but rosemary oil has your back with budget-friendly help. Rosemary oil won't clear up existing acne but totally puts the kibosh on its causes. Treat yourself to a rosemary oil skin product as part of your daily beauty routine or as part of a spa-style treatment to find sweet-smelling relief.
Rosemary alone won't banish pimples, but this essential oil does belong in your skincare regime to fight acne. The herb cleans up excess oil from your skin and regulates future oil production for a balanced, healthy glow. It also removes the bacteria that can cause acne. Combine rosemary products with your go-to acne relief creams to cover the skincare spectrum.
Since rosemary stimulates cell renewal and helps clear up dead, dull skin, you'll find it in many exfoliants and facial scrubs. You can also find rosemary facial cleansers in soap, face wash or gel form. Or choose a rosemary toner to regulate skin oils and reduce oily sheen. If you can't find rosemary products you love, consider adding the rosemary by putting a few drops of essential oil into your product.
Ask for rosemary next time you treat yourself to a facial, or give yourself the at-home budget version with a facial mask containing rosemary. Supercharge the spa-style treatment by incorporating other acne-busting aromatics, such as sandalwood, aloe vera or red clay. Pre-mask, treat yourself to a facial steam using rosemary oil. Boil water with rosemary springs or rosemary essential oil, then turn off the heat. Drape a towel over your head and lean over the steam to cleanse your face. Steaming opens pores, and rosemary oil deep cleans those pores for improved skin health.
Rosemary also helps fight eczema and dermatitis. It helps mature and sun-damaged skin fight wrinkles and promotes faster healing of burned and wounded skin. Rosemary promotes hair health and helps regulate dandruff. Its zesty aroma is a natural anti-depressant, so don't be surpised if rosemary skin products lift your mood a bit.
