Gentle Grapefruit Spot Treatment

When it comes to spot treatments, you can go one of two routes: heavy duty or nice and easy. While we’re big fans of Kate Somerville’s Eradikate as an overnight remedy for emergency-status pimples, we also like to give our skin a break—the stinging sensation wears over time. So, to treat unwanted breakouts more naturally, we turn to our Grapefruit essential oil. Grapefruit has antibacterial properties and, when mixed with a carrier oil like jojoba or sweet almond oil, it works as a super gentle spot treatment. All you have to do is mix it 1:1, dip, and apply with a q-tip. The more you know, heh?
