TOP-5 most effective oils against skin rashes

Essential oils have extremely strong pharmacological properties. The oils contain terpenes – hydrocarbons. Their molecules have a lot of unsaturated carbon bonds, which cause the high activity of these substances. In practice, esters penetrate deep into the inflamed sebaceous gland, stop the inflammatory process and destroy the bacteria that caused the suppuration. Which oils are most effective against acne? We will talk about this in our new article.

Tea tree oil

It is considered the most effective in inflammation of the skin. It contains terpenes, which kill the bacteria that cause acne while having a calming effect on inflamed and irritated skin. In a study conducted by the Australian College of Dermatologists, people washed their faces with either a skin cleanser containing tea tree oil or a product without it. The study found that people who used facial skin cleansers with tea tree oil achieved better results.

Rosehip oil

This oil should be present on your bathroom shelf all year round if you suffer from acne. Rosehip oil is absorbed very quickly (especially "light", purified formulas), leaving the skin dry and radiant. No oily trace or greasy film. The skin will absorb it. Rosehip oil contains phenols, which have antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. This oil is very effective for sensitive skin prone to acne. The oil can also help relieve conditions such as rosacea, psoriasis and eczema.

Black cumin oil

Has a powerful antibacterial effect. This is a light oil that does not cause comedones, rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids. Among them is the necessary linoleum. It contains eicosapentaenoic acid, which is rare in vegetable oils (it is characteristic of fish oil). It is converted into eicosanoids, which have an anti-inflammatory effect. Like coconut oil, black cumin oil is desirable to use in the mixture, because a high amount of PUFA means low stability: it is prone to oxidation. Use black cumin oil for acne in the evening in a dosage of up to 10%. 

Tamanu oil

Traditionally used to heal skin diseases and wounds (especially in Polynesia). It has a proven antibacterial and wound-healing effect. In 2015, scientists tested 5 samples of oil from Indonesia, Tahiti, Fiji and New Caledonia. The oil promoted rapid wound healing relative to the control group, even in minimal dosage. Also, the oils inhibited the growth of pathogenic bacteria. Both are relevant for acne.

Specifically fragrant oil of a rich green hue is perfectly absorbed without leaving an oil film on the skin, helps with dermatitis and is suitable for sensitive skin. Dosage in mixtures for the face is up to 10%. Some girls like the scent, but some find it unpleasant. It resembles curry spice.

Lettuce oil

Cold-pressed lettuce oil has such a light and liquid texture that it is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin. And it is very useful for all skin types. It is rich in vitamin C, which is a very strong antioxidant that prevents the appearance of premature signs of ageing. Lettuce oil is famous for its antibacterial properties, which help eliminate the cause of acne. It is rich in oleic acid. It can also penetrate deeper than other ingredients, so this oil nourishes dry skin especially well. Besides, lettuce oil reduces the redness and tightness of the skin.
