Healthy Skincare Routine using Homemade Acne Remedies

Oily, acne-prone skin needs daily care - morning and night. And a weekly deep treatment doesn't hurt. (By the way, you can use these acne recipes on any part of your body - not just your face!)

Every morning

  1. Wash your face with tea tree facial wash.
  2. Apply an astringent toner.
  3. Spot treat any pimples or blemishes with tea tree or lavender essential oil.
  4. Moisturize your face.

DO NOT FAIL TO MOISTURIZE! It may seem silly to put cream on oily skin but if you don't, your skin will produce even more oil to replace the oil removed during the cleansing process.

Every Night

  1. Wash your face with a purifying facial scrub.
  2. Apply an astringent toner.
  3. Spot treat any pimples or blemishes with tea tree or lavender.
  4. Apply healing night cream or acne scar treatment.

Once a Week

Once a week, take some time out to care for your skin with these homemade acne remedies. Not only will your skin show the results, but the rest of you will appreciate the break and de-stress time. Self-care is a really important habit!
