My Favorite Oils For Skin (Acne Prone)


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!

Melaleuca (Tea Tree)

This oil is antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. It’s my go to for insect bites, itching, rashes, and pimples. Use it in your moisturizer, oil, or apply directly to the affected area. Got a skin problem? Tea tree can fix it.


This is the mega of the skin oils. It doesn’t smell the best (kind of like old people) but it works wonders. It’s incredible for rejuvenation and tightening of the skin. It’s also great for reducing acne, the appearance of pores, wrinkles, and to reduce signs of aging. Aka get using this one asap. I mix it in my jojoba oil and apply to directly to an affected area.


Geranium has became a new favorite of mine due to its incredible skin prosperities. It helps to reduce acne, dermatitis, and skin conditions. It also smells amazing. It is a natural insect repellent and helps with bug bites.
