DIY Face Wash For Acne, Pimples And Blackheads

Easy and Effective Homemade Skin Treatment to Stop Skin Breakouts

It happens to all of us. You wake up one morning, or check the mirror in the afternoon, and you’ve started breaking out. You wash, you apply your commercial creams but it just keeps getting worse, and you have no idea why. Here I’m going to share with you an easy recipe for home made skin treatment remedy that contains only 3 ingredients which will help your skin to stop breaking out. You can use this natural skin treatment for acne, pimples and blackheads.

I’ve found the recipe for the homemade skin treatment in the Camp Wander blog. I recommend you to read the full article that also includes 15 uses for witch hazel.

Witch hazel is an all-natural toner and astringent, and is regularly used as an acne treatment. It balances skin’s oil production, helping to clear blackheads naturally.

Two of the ingredients are tea tree essential oil which is known for its natural soothing and cleansing properties, and lavender essential oil. Both essential oils have anti-fungal and anti bacterial properties and are great for skin care.

Another ingredient is Witch Hazel. The leaves and bark of the this plant may be used to produce an astringent which is used medicinally, especially to reduce the inflammation on pimples.

    I’m allergic to lavendar, is there an alternative to lavendar oil?

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Emily, I would replace it with either geranium or chamomile essential oils, because they seldom irritate, are light and pleasant and very calming. They have many of the same properties as Lavender for sensitive skin, so they are a good substitute to lavender in case of lavender sensitivity or allergy.
