In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial, green tea extract was found to have  resulted in significant reductions in lesions located on the nose, perioral area and chin in post-adolescent acne in women.

Witch hazel is an astringent, which means it causes the contraction of body tissues, typically of the skin. This can help manage oily skin and clean away dead cells and excess oils.

Steam distilled from the flowering plants grown at the Young Living farms in Simiane-la-Rotonde, France, and Mona, Utah, lavender is the most versatile essential oil. Its refreshing, relaxing scent has balancing properties that also bring a sense of calm.
