It has antioxidants which treat acne, tighten skin, helps diminish dark spot, moisturize, reduce scars, restore collagen and fight aging. It quickly penetrates the skin due to its light and thin consistency. It is suitable for all skin types but is especially used by those with sensitive and/or acne-prone skin as well as those with oily skin.
Lavender Oil: It is one of those few natural ingredients you can look up to for getting rid of acne troubles. The oil has antiseptic properties that can fight the bacteria that cause acne. Lavender tones and makes your skin firm as it boosts circulation, thus resulting in an adequate supply of oxygen and nutrition to the skin cells. This helps in keeping the cells healthy and boosting their renewal process.

How to use
Wet your face simply by water and take a required amount of facial cleanser. Apply it to your skin by giving massage in circular motion with your fingers for 2-3 minutes. Massage stimulates the blood vessels and improves the blood circulation. These effects help to maintain healthy and beautiful skin. It also helps you to clean pores and exfoliates dead skin cells. You will notice that oil is being absorbed by the skin and clay has started to become dry. Now wet your fingers with water and again give a gentle massage for 1/2 a minute and then wash your face with normal water and apply moisturizer.
