Super Easy DIY Antibacterial Home Made Moisturizer For Acne Affected Skin

Natural Acne Moisturizer Recipe

My favourite home made remedies for acne

Have you ever noticed how store bought acne treatments are almost always washes and spot treatments?

You rarely see acne moisturizers on the market. Why? Well because acne product manufacturers are focused on cleaning away the dead skin cells, grime and sebum from pores that cause acne, and not on nourishing and rebalancing skin after using cleansing products.

Most acne products contain one or more antibacterial agent like salicylic acid or isotretinoin based substances to alter the environment bacteria lives in. Many of these products contain ingredients which are irritating to or dry out skin altering the PH balance of skin leaving it feeling dry or tight. Acne washes can leave your skin vulnerable to invading bacteria after use because they affect your skins natural balance and defence systems.

While is it a good idea to make the skin an inhospitable environment for acne to thrive in by removing excess oil, sebum and blackheads, it doesn't make sense to ignore the importance of replacing the positive benefits of oil sebum with something other than potentially clogging skincare products that can contribute to the cause of acne.

So what moisturizers should you use to rebalance the effects of acne washes?

By using moisturizers that contain oils that help your skins sebum stay nice and viscous you can avoid the formation of clogged pores and blackheads/comedones that form the basis of acne.

When you add antibacterial ingredients like the essential oils in the recipe below, you can really boost the preventative properties of the moisturizer further deterring acne bacteria from growing.

Light nourishing antibacterial acne moisturizer recipe for oily skin

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup aloe vera gel (this is soothing and healing)
  • 3/4 ounce beeswax, available from amazon in pellets, make sure you get the kind for cosmetics and not candles.
  • 1/4 cup grapeseed oil
  • 1/8 cup coconut oil or Jojoba oil (coconut oil is antibacterial but can be a little greasy)
  • 1/8 cup almond oil or Jojoba oil (can omit almond oil and use Grapeseed or Jojoba oil)
  • 5 drops of your tea tree essential oil or neem oil (both antibacterial, neem is also soothing and healing for irritated skin and heals scars
  • 5 drops lavender oil (soothes redness and irritation and it antibacterial)
  • 1 teaspoon honey (optional but is healing and moisturizing)
  • Chocolate/soap melter or double boiler
  • Blender or fine whisk

How To Make It:

  1. Begin by melting the beeswax and coconut oil in the carrier oils.
  2. Pour the melted oils into your blender and allow to cool. It is important at this point to let the stuff cool down before you add the other ingredients. Don't skip this step, if you do it will separate later and leave you with a curdled mess. Wait for about 40 minutes to an hour before proceeding to the next step.
  3. Mix the essential oils into your cup of aloe vera gel.
  4. Turn on the blender and SLOWLY pour the aloe vera gel mix into the blender as it whips. You will see this transform from a thick oil to a light and fluffy white lotion texture. Just like the real stuff!
  5. That's it! You've made your own DIY facial acne moisturizer! Store in a pretty container so it looks nice and store in the fridge.
  6. Wash your hands before dipping your fingers in this mix, it should last several months if you do this.

It should have a fluffy creamy texture like the photos below. Apply daily as you would your usual moisturizer.

You can add lots of other ingredients and make a lot more recipes like those in the books below. They contain powerful ingredients that can totally transform your skin - and even heal acne scars!
