Skin Care Recipes for Acne

Guest Author - Tara Logan-Hearn

Finally, it's time to start using natural skin care recipes for acne that work! The following acne recipes are effective, natural, and easy to make.

You've probably heard about all sorts of skin care products on the market as well as mediocre, ineffective recipes, and publications on the internet.

These products, skin care recipes and publications promise to do this, that or the other for acne prone skin. However, many of you probably have become weary using many products with minimal to no positive results.

While your face is becoming more bombarded with pimples and dead skin cells, your pocket book is becoming very light in the process. This can be frustrating for most of us.

Well, those days may hopefully come to an end for you using the following skin care recipes. Remember, as with any good skin care regimen, it is extremely important to be patient, consistent and optimistic. Happy formulating!


Acne Clearing Scrub

Ingredients You Will Need:
  • Baking Soda - controls oily skin and balances skin's pH level

  • Aloe Vera Juice or Gel - anti inflammatory, skin hydrator

  • Tea Tree Oil - anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti irritant

Preparation:

Step 1 - Pour your desired amount of baking soda into a clean, small container or bottle of choice. The amount you pour depends on whether you want to get multiple uses out of it, or just want a one-time use.

Step 2 - Add the aloe vera juice to the baking soda, a few drops at a time, until you have created a creamy, liquid-like paste.

Step 3 - Finally, add about 20-30 drops tea tree oil to the paste. Then mix well. If using a bottle, shake well to mix.


Functions:
  • Removes pore-clogging dead skin cells

  • Kills acne-causing bacteria

  • Calms irritation associated with acne

Directions for Use:

Simply wet face, then massage all over skin in circular motions, (concentrating on problem areas) for about 60 seconds. Rinse to remove. Pat dry. Use 2 to 3 times weekly. Can also be used once daily on non-sensitive skin types if desired.


Acne Clearing Serum

Ingredients You Will Need:
  • Aloe Vera Juice or Gel - anti inflammatory, skin hydrator

  • Witch Hazel - an astringent herb that helps heal blemishes and reduce oiliness

  • Tea Tree Oil - anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti irritant

Preparation:

Step 1 - Fill a clean 8 oz. bottle with aloe vera about halfway.

Step 2 - Fill the remainder of the bottle with the witch hazel, leaving about an inch of room at the top of bottle. This allows for you to thoroughly shake to mix.

Step 3 - Add 20-30 drops of tea tree oil to liquid, then shake all ingredients together until well mixed.


Functions:
  • Kills acne-causing bacteria

  • Calms irritation

  • Reduces oiliness

  • Hydrates skin

  • Balances skin's pH level

Directions for Use:

Apply approximately a dime sized amount completely to affected areas and massage until absorbed. You can also use a cotton ball or pad to apply to skin until absorbed into skin. Use twice daily after cleansing for best results.


Tip:

If you decide you want to make a enough of these formulas to last you repeated use, be sure to store in a bottle tightly sealed with a dispensing cap. Also store in the fridge after each use to increase shelf life. Remember, the tea tree oil in this formula will also help extend the shelf life of these products. Although these are very easy and inexpensive products to make, I do suggest you make enough, so you don't have to keep making it every time you plan to use it.


Friendly note:

If you're not sure where to get these few ingredients, not to worry. Every last ingredient here should be available at your local drug store, health food store, grocery store or even online and they're very inexpensive.
