Homemade Acne Stick
This emergency zit stick is great for popup pimples, but if you struggle with breakouts and acne on a regular basis, you may want to try:
*When choosing a roller bottle for your emergency zit stick, opt for a tinted glass bottle. Plastic is a bad idea because overtime, essential oils can eat through the material. In addition, you want a tinted bottle for your acne stick because sunlight can cause essential oils to breakdown faster.
**You need to use a glass dropper when working with essential oils because, as mentioned above, overtime, they can eat through plastic.
1. Gently remove the roller insert from the bottle.
2. Fill with witch hazel to the “shoulder” of the bottle.
3. Use a dropper to carefully add frankincense and melaleuca to your emergency zit stick.
4. Replace roller and cap and shake well to combine.
1. Your acne stick should be applied to a clean surface so remove any makeup and wash the affected area first.
Tip: Use these homemade makeup remover pads and this aloe and mint foaming face wash or this grapefruit face wash.
2. Roll your emergency zit stick over the affected area
Note: It is safe to use this acne stick 2-3 times a day on the same area.
3. Allow to dry.
