Acne and blemishes appear when they are most unexpected and can ruin your special day! Also if you have acne-prone and oily skin, you probably get them often and can leave behind scars. There are a lot of zit zapping products available in the market that can work but they are quite expensive and often contain toxic and synthetic ingredients. How about making your very own zit-zapper using organic and pure ingredients?
Coconut oil- Coconut oil has anti-fungal and anti-microbial action. It helps treat acne and heal the skin without leaving behind any scars.
Tea tree oil- Tea tree oil also is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It kills acne-causing microbes and treats acne.
Camomile essential oil- Camomile oil has skin calming and anti-inflammatory properties. It reduces redness and pain from active acne.
Things you need-
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 10 drops tea tree oil
- 5 drops camomile oil
In a bowl, add coconut oil and tea tree oil. If coconut oil is solid, melt it. Add in camomile oil and mix.
Pour the oil in a roll-on tube and use it on the zits before bedtime.
If you stay in a cold region, the coconut oil probably wont stay in liquid state; in that case, you can pour the mixture in a lip balm tube instead of a roll-on tube.
**Caution- Never use essential oils directly on the skin, always use them diluted. Patch test before using. Use all organic ingredients.
