At Home Acne Recipes


Simple home acne recipes

Why wait another day, or spend any more money on acne facemasks or treatments for teenage or oily skin that are expensive and don’t work for your skin? It isn’t good enough to be promised a guaranteed acne cure only to find out later on that you could have created 3 must have recipes for acne from home.

Creating natural skin care recipes and acne facemasks at home is incredibly liberating. The sense of power you feel when you discover what each ingredient does allows you to make informed decisions on what will work best for your skin type.

Gain confidence in yourself when you learn how natural vitamins and nutrients can cleanse and tone the skin, and how others can nourish and revitalize your skin.

Magazines and online media is full of these gorgeous looking models with glowing skin. Models and actresses like Miranda Kerr and Gwyneth Paltrow are passionate advocators for natural health, both in their lifestyle and their skincare regime. They know the secrets behind natural skincare and use it to their advantage – you can tell.

When you discover ingredients like coconut oil and how it can transform your skin by looking after skin cells and bringing that to life you will be hooked.

Acne facemasks as an effective acne treatment may seem too good to be true, but don’t be fooled by their simplicity. Huge pharmaceutical companies have bombarded us all our lives spending massive advertising bucks telling us all sorts of “must-haves”. What they haven’t told you (and never will I might add) is the fact that natural skin care recipes are just as potent if you use the right ingredients, so easy to make and just so much more affordable.

A small investment into some key natural ingredients you will be stunned at the results. Our 3 must have recipes for acne will put you on the right path. The real pay off comes when you can say to yourself – I love my skin!

Home Remedies For Acne Scars


1. Soothing Oatmeal and Basil Mask

Mix 2 – 3 crushed basil leaves (basil is super easy to grow, even if you have small apartment it grows extremely well in pots), 1 tablespoon of oatmeal and water to mix. Massage into the problem area using circular motions, leave for 10 – 20 minutes and rinse off with lukewarm water. Oatmeal cleanses and moisturizers and soothes the skin so any itchiness and dryness is treated straight away.

2. Repairing Yogurt Aloe Vera Mask

Mix half a cup of natural yoghurt and 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel or if you are lucky enough the gel from inside the leaf of fresh aloe vera. Apply to the face, leave for 15 – 30 minutes and rinse off with water. The reason aloe vera is so good for skin repair in an acne facemask is because it has antioxidant properties which protects and rejuvenates the skin.

3. Oily Skin Milk Oatmeal Mask

5-6 tablespoons of ground oatmeal with 1 tablespoon of milk, mix until a thick paste. Leave on the skin for 10 – 20 minutes and rinse off with luke warm water. Here is our trusty oatmeal again, and we know this sounds like breakfast. All we can say is make this part of your morning ritual and start the day feeling great.

Take your pick now, or try all three – try to imagine the alternative. If time wasting and money wasting isn’t your thing then we think you have waited long enough to discover awesome treatments for acne and natural skin care recipes.

Acne Scars

I'm including an extra segment here for acne scars because many people who have grown out or acne or gotten on top of breakouts are left with marks and scars.

You can make acne scar serums from carrier and essential oils that are rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins that repair skin like the ones below for example:

Carrot seed oil: rich in antioxidants A and C, these help to protect and repair skin from deep within the skins layers. Supports cell renewal and regeneration.

Tamanu oil: Has regenerative properties to stimulate the skins natural repair process.

Rosehip oil:Rich in essential fatty acids to lock in moisture and carry essential oils through the skins protective layers deep into your skin where they can work on repairing damage and regenerating new healthy cells.

Rose hip oil is also rich in vitamin A, a type of vitamin A called trans-retinoic acid. It can help to prevent premature ageing caused by increased levels of enzymes that break down collagen and elastin as a result of sun exposure.

Almond oil: Great carrier oil to mix with these other oils. Also helps with scarring.

Sea buckthorn oil: Very repairing and regenerative oil. Also anti aging and protective.

How to make a scar serum that you can apply to skin as a moisturizer twice daily:


4 tablespoons Almond oil

4 tablespoons Rosehip oil

15 drops of Carrot seed oil

5 drops of Sea Buckthorn oil

7 drops of Tamanu oil


Blend well together and store in a glass bottle out of direct sunlight and in a coolish place.

Use on scarred areas (or whole face) for a nourishing acne scar serum. You can add ther oils to deal with wrinkles, red veins, uneven skin tone and more from Natural Home Made Skin Care Recipes (Amazon book).

I hope you enjoy these recipes. Natural skin care recipes can be more powerful than store bought ones when combined in the right way. The work synergistically to repair and protect skin from premature aging, sun damage and lots more.
