According to HealthLine, if you’re dealing with papules and pustules — the red “zits” that can form on the surface of your skin — grapeseed oil may help clear your breakout. In addition to reducing redness and inflammation, the oil may promote cell regeneration to help replace damaged skin. You can also use grapeseed oil to help reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Grapeseed oil is rich in vitamin E, which has been shown to help with scars. Some research suggests that you may see results in as little as two weeks if you apply the oil twice a day. It’s also worth noting that the linoleic acid that’s in grapeseed oil may help speed wounds through the inflammatory phase. This could reduce your risk of scarring.
The tannins found in hazelnut oil are both potent antioxidants and natural astringents. Astringent oils like hazelnut can help cleanse and tighten the skin, shrink the pores and eradicate bacteria. This means your skin is less likely to develop common conditions like acne and can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Scars and Stretch Marks.
Castor Oil is used because it is known to soften the debris that has been trapped in the pores and gently exfoliate and remove. Usually when massaging on the skin one will notice tiny little granules like sugar or salt; that's what's been clogging your skin causing acne!
Use on dry, unwashed skin. Simply take about a nickel sized amount of cleanser into your palm, then massage into skin for approximately 2 minutes. Have a clean, hot wash cloth handy and "steam" off, never rubbing or smearing. Tent your face with the hot wash cloth and allow the heat to penetrate as you pat the wash cloth. Rinse wash cloth and repeat two more times. Next step is to go to your everyday routine: Be Balanced Toner, Be Restored Serum and Be Amazing Face Moisturizer. (You will not use soap and water on this day, only use the cleanser). Some people do not use anything afterwards, allowing their skin to breathe naturally. You'll have to find your own rhythm and see what works best for you.
