It can be used to remove eye makeup, along with a long list of other types of makeup and their oils out of the pores. It can also be used as a facial moisturizer because jojoba oil resembles human sebum. This means the skin is gonna take it without negative reactions. It can be used as body oil, hair conditioner, cuticle oil (cuticle: outermost layer of the skin of vertebrates; epidermis), and heals dry, chapped lips.

The only downside about this product is it could cause purging. Allergic reactions could occur in some people, as with all herbal remedies. This rarely occurs though. Jojoba oil can run cheap for as low as $4.99, cheaper than a lot of herbal remedies on the market today.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a powerful acne treatment herbal remedy. This herbal remedy has many uses and could benefit you in weight loss and acne treatment. For centuries, apple cider vinegar has been used as food and medicine for humans and pets. Animals enjoy apple cider, and can be used as health tonic to remove fleas and tics, and can be used to remove odors.

Its a natural product that cures acne. It falls under the skin tonic category. This product can be consumed by drinking it as health tonic or by placing it on the infected skin to quickly remove acne. There is a difference in what kind of apple cider vinegar you should use. Organic apple cider vinegar is best for acne treatment because its 100% pure. It still contains enzymes in it.

Two ways to treat acne with Apple Cider Vinegar


  1. First you mix 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar with 1/3 of a cup of water. Next you soak a cotton ball within the mix and administer to the acne infected regions of the skin. Do it every night because apple cider vinegar has a bad smell to it, and who wants to be in public smelling like that. Afterwards, wake up in the morning and wash your face.
  2. To create a treatment mask, you must mix green clay with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Afterwards, add some water until the clay turns into thick past, then apply it to your face. Leave on your face approximately 15-20 mins (or until the mask dries up) and rinse it off with cold water.
