So, I have been studying acne and would love to share this….
Hi everyone my name is Maycie (: . I have been researching natural acne remedies since trying the OTC line of murad at age 13, and my skin reacting terribly to it and then later at age 14-15 trying Acne fee, which my skin cleared some but looked so scaly and dry; just unhealthy, I felt there had got to be something better for my skin that naturally occured. , (I know everyone has different skin) but using chemicals on your skin is actually stripping the natural sebum/oils from your skin which results in your skin making more and more oil, or in some peoples cases scaling up and becoming dry and cracked.
Lets start with my newest acne remedie, BAKING SODA:
It cleans deep within your pores, and gently exfoliates for a clean and smooth finish. One way to use it is as a facial/body wash when a good amount is mixed with a moisturizing, non alergenic for sensitive skin face wash. ( a good cleanser being “Humphrey’s cleansing milk” found at most whole food stores ) Another way to use this is as a SPOT TREATMENT mask (on indivisual areas of breakouts or pimples do not over dry already cleared skin) .I would recoomend doing this mask at night incase your skin looks red at all after, if will rejuvinate during your sleep! you will be Creating this by mixing mostly BAKING SODA with a little bit of water until it forms a paste. This mask also i must warn is a little messy, and will fall off your face once dry. I recomend leaving it on for about 20 minutes or so. Don’t forget to moisturize your skin after because this can be somewhat drying if you don’t !
Another trick Ive learned is the inside of a banana peel! You cut the peel into about 3 inch long pieces and massage into skin until peel turns brown. Doing this 3 times a day, for 4 days and your pimple will be completly gone! Do not wash brown residue off from peel for at least 20-30 min if possible and can be left on all night as well! Banana peels are good for wrinkles as well! the compound in the peel such as potassium and B5 are wonderful for skin and rejuvinating!!
Oliv oil massage on skin! (: all you do is put a quarter sized amound in hand and rub into skin to clear off make up and such. with warm water and a washrag rinse and wipe GENTLY off make up and oil and massage in a new handful of oil that is now clean and clear of make up. You may do so in a circular motion, all over your face and esspecially on problem areas for 10 -15 minutes and then rinse until most oil is gone but some left will be fine! this is realy great for extracting dirt from pores! you may even feels a tingly sensation which means a lot of blood is healthly flowing to your face, ( and good blood flow aids in healing so it will help heal your skin! ) It may seem adding oil to an already oiy face will make it more oily but it will actually cut it down because your skin wont have to try to make so much of its own oils!! I recomend doing this massage for 10-15 minutes in a place you can sit and relax and picture your perfect skin, only having positive thoughts about it! and manifest that clear perfect soft skin (: !
Apple cider vinegar when mixed about 40% vinegar with water makes an excellent toner for skin, and is esspecially good for back acne (along with baking soda in shower really helped clear my back ). Its also a great detangler in shower for your hair and it softens it too! but any way its a wonderful thing for skin (:
oatmeal (unflavored) when cooked can be a wonderful soothing cleanser/face wash. It feels so good, lightened my marks and really tones my skin (: ! I LOVE it
oh and btw baking soda is a great toothpaste whitens teeth so much (: and a wonderful shampoo when mixed with water. Just letting you know because my sesitive skin breaks out on my forhead and hair line where chemically filled shampoos and conditioners touch my skin, it had seemed everything broke me out until i tried natural products! message me for any questions (: !!
