If the cost of buying a face oil or serum is a bit pricey for your budget right now, did you know that you can easily make your own diy acne oil serum for the fraction of the cost?
It’s true and it’s super easy!
In the video below, I used 5 different oils, which included a carrier oil and essential oils, to make my own customized DIY Acne Oil Serum to help with my acne prone skin.
Despite what you may have heard, using oils for acne can actually help.
Acne breakouts occur when the pores on your skin get clogged with oil, dead skin, and impurities. There are many products on the market that claim to clear acne, some of which do help, but these products are very harsh and strip the skin of its natural oils.
As a result, stripping the skin to the point where it feels squeaky clean puts the skin into overdrive to produce more oil and thus, causes more acne breakouts.
Admit it. You’ve tried washing your face over and over again thinking that if you had a clean face is, it will clear up your acne, right?
We’ve all done this and I don’t know about you, but over cleaning my face made my flare-ups even worse. Remember, it’s all the constant cleaning of our skin, along with using harsh acne products that contain harmful ingredients, which are are drying, that can cause more acne flare-ups.
Using the principle “like dissolves like,” cleansing or moisturizing your skin with an oil can help to balance and nourish the skin by hydrating it.
It makes sense and it’s no wonder why more and more people are turning to natural and/or diy products for their body, skin, and hair care routines (i.e. oil cleansing method, diy acne wash, natural make-up, etc.)
There is no right or wrong way to customize your own diy acne oil serum. Therefore, you can totally tailor the serum to your preferred taste. The carrier oil I used is 100% Grapeseed Oil and the essential oils for acne I used are tea tree oil, rosemary oil, rosehip seed oil, and cedarwood oil.
Other carrier oils you can use are sesame oil, argan oil, sweet almond oil, extra virgin olive oil, evening primrose, and jojoba oil.
Likewise, beneficial essential oils for acne you can use are lavender, lemongrass, geranium, lemon, clary sage, sandalwood, and frankincense.
With this customized blend, the aroma will be woodsy and earthy. If you find that the scent is too strong, you can decrease the amount of the rosemary and/or cedarwood oil. Also, you can always add a sweet smelling essential oil to your blend like lemon, vanilla, lavender, etc.
