But what can lavender do for your skin?

1. Detox

Our skin is consistently exposed to toxins and other pollutants in the environment. It is no surprise that our skin will suffer and collect pollutants throughout the day. Daily cleansing and using face tonics are a good way to get rid of the dirt stuck in our pores. 

However, using products containing high levels of lavender is a even better idea. Lavender contains high levels of powerful antioxidants that cleanses and repairs the damaging effects of pollutants on the skin.

Studies has also found that lavender oil is one of the few potent essential oils that can inhibit the growth of skin bacteria

2. Treat Acne

Other lavender benefits include stress and anxiety reduction that often is associated with adult acne breakouts. Because these therapeutic properties of lavender your acne can reduce because of less stress and higher quality sleep when using lavender.

This is because the oil has the ability to relieve itching and reduce the symptoms of eczema.
