|Essential Oils are
natural and safer
Acne is a common skin condition that affects most people at some stage in their
life. It mostly occurs at the adolescent stage in the skin area of your shoulders,
face, neck, chest or back. Our skin produces a natural oil called sebum that
prevents the skin from drying out, but during adolescent period, this oil tends to be
produced in excess.
This excess oil blocks the hair follicles of the skin and this is what leads to
development of acne together with accumulation of dead skin cells.
