FriYAY Acne Fighting Edition

FriYAY: Acne Fighting Edition

We’ve all been there. You wash your face, go to sleep with clear skin, and wake up to find a giant zit has grown overnight. Or maybe acne isn’t an occasional struggle but rather an ongoing battle that you can’t seem to win. It doesn’t help that there are so many things that can cause those pesky red spots to erupt: hormone changes, diet, lack of sleep, genetics, stress…or maybe you varied your skincare routine ever so slightly and your skin is staging a protest.

It doesn’t help that the supposed answer to acne is to strip your skin of everything and dry out the zits with alcohol. That might work temporarily, but it isn’t doing your skin any favors in the long term. Instead, you can use essential oils and the right carrier oils to help nourish your skin and combat acne the natural way. Let’s look at this FriYAY’s acne-fighting trio: Zit Fighter, Clear Complex, and Tea Tree.

FriYAY Acne Fighting Edition - Tea Tree

Tea Tree

When it comes to skin-clearing oils, Tea Tree is at the top of the list. It helps reduce excess oil and blemishes without completely drying out your skin. Tea Tree’s cleansing abilities also make it great for spot treatment when you’re dealing with acne or blemishes. The skincare benefits don’t stop there! It can help with irritated, itchy, or even stinky (we’re looking at you, feet) skin. Consider adding it to your unscented shampoo to help with dandruff or an oily scalp.

In addition to helping cleanse the skin, Tea Tree is also fantastic in DIY household cleaning recipes. It imparts a fresh, medicinal, woody scent and operates as a powerful surface cleaner when mixed at 2% with vinegar. To refresh a stale or musty room, diffuse alone or with a floral essential oil like Jasmine Absolute or Lavender. If your towels can’t seem to shake that musty smell, try adding a few drops to your washer.

How to Use

Dilute up to 5%  in a carrier oil for small, targeted areas or dilute to 1-2% for everyday skin applications. Dilute 2% with vinegar for a cleaning spray. Or add a few drops to your diffuser to liven up a stale room and bring about a calm, soothing atmosphere.

Zit Fighter Essential Oil Blend

Zit Fighter

Tea Tree is always a great choice when it comes to skincare, but sometimes you need a little something extra in your arsenal. Zit Fighter was specially formulated to help when those zits pop up, whatever the cause may be. It combines a number of skin-clearing essential oils, like Geranium Bourbon, Grapefruit, and Cedarwood Himalayan, that are known for their ability to help rebalance skin and reduce the appearance of redness. This, in turn, helps your skin to look more clear and healthy.

How to Use

Dilute Zit Fighter up to 5% in a carrier oil or in Aloe Jelly and apply directly to blemishes with a cotton swab.

Some Things to Know

Clear Complex Carrier Oil Blend

Clear Complex

When you’re dealing with oily skin, which often goes hand-in-hand with acne, it might seem counterintuitive to add even more oil to your face. But making sure your face is properly hydrated can help prevent it from producing excess oil. Clear Complex is a lightweight carrier oil blend that combines Grapeseed, Hemp Seed, Evening Primrose, and Vitamin E Oils. These carriers blended together to create a light, nourishing oil that relieves redness and is perfect for oily skin.

Grapeseed Oil is very light and moisturizing with astringent properties; it smooths away dryness and will not clog pores. Hemp Seed Oil is very high in omega fatty acids and proteins and encourages a healthy moisture balance. Evening Primrose Oil soothes redness, plus it nourishes and protects healthy skin cells. Vitamin E finishes off the blend by acting as a powerful antioxidant. It’s the ideal carrier oil blend for daily use.

How to Use

Clear Complex Carrier Oil Blend is perfect to use as the base for your oil cleansing method or as a daily moisturizer (even oily skin needs moisturizing after daily exposure to the elements). Apply directly to a clean face 1-2 times a day.

  • YES! I have had SO much success with Clear Complex and Zit Fighter. I’ve suffered from horrible acne all of my teen and young adult life. I’ve been on different “systems” that are advertised on TV and had even seen a dermatologist for it. I wanted off the medication I was taking for it and was on a mission to defeat it as naturally as possible. About two years ago I started washing my face with diatomaceous earth, then following up with Melissa Hydrosol as a “toner” and Clear Complex and Zit Fighter in the place of moisturizer. I was super skeptical about fighting oily skin with oil but then I looked into the science behind it and I’m NEVER going back! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

  • Tea tree is one of my all time favorite oils! I started using it over 20 years ago when someone re commended it to me for acne. It worked great, and I use it still for all of its wonderful properties. I love a more gentle approach to skincare as the results speak for themselves.

  • Thank you for this blog post. I have a pre-teen in my house that is just starting to discover the joys of having acne start. I wanted to start getting some things around for her to have and this couldn’t have come at a better time.
