My skin has always had trouble. When I was little I had eczema and always got bug bites. When I became older, the bug bites still continued, I’d get an occasional heat rash in the summer, and then Started to break out. My grandmother convinced me I’d have perfect skin and so when my first pimple came, I was incredibly deflated.
The acne never really subsided. I also started to get hyper pigmentation from acne scars and being in the sun. As I started incorporating essential oils into my entire life, I dove deep into oils for my skin and here are my top three!

Lucky for us, the secret is now very much out in the open.
