Homemade Face Wash For Acne: Homemade Aloe & Mint Foaming Face Wash
It seems the more embarrassing a problem is the more money companies offering quick fixes stand to make. Take acne for example; according to Consumer Reports, Americans spend $400 million each year just on over the counter acne treatments. Yikes! What if I told you there was a homemade face wash for acne that would cost you far less than certain acne products advertised on TV?
Yep, it’s true, there is a homemade face wash for acne that will save you money while still kicking acne flareups to the curb (or helping prevent them altogether).
This foaming homemade face wash for acne is soothing, cleansing, and moisturizing. Thanks to its natural ingredients, this homemade face wash for acne is gentle enough to use on a daily basis. In fact, you should be able to use it multiple times a day without having to worry about irritation. That’s not something that can be said about many commercial acne face washes.
In addition, this homemade face wash for acne takes less than five minutes to make. The steps are so easy anyone can tackle this project successfully. Even if you’re living in a college dorm without access to a kitchen you can make this homemade face wash for acne.
While the low cost, sensitive skin friendly ingredients, and quick and easy creation are all awesome benefits of this homemade face wash for acne, my favorite thing is how customizable the recipe is. When I make this homemade face wash for acne, I use lavender and frankincense essential oils because they fit my skin’s needs. Both are great for oily skin and for helping to repair and prevent signs of aging. When it comes to fighting acne, the lavender essential oil and coconut oil are awesome!
However, when you make this homemade face wash for acne you can use whichever essential oils best fit your needs. Here are some options you should consider for your homemade face wash for acne recipe:
If your skin is oily use…
- Tea tree (Melaleuca)
If your skin is dry use…
If your skin is sensitive use…
If your skin is normal use…
To fight signs of aging use…
To prevent and clear up acne use…
- Tea Tree (Melaleuca)
You do not need to use just one essential oil in your homemade face wash for acne. Pick a combo of two that you feel will best suit your skin.
Tip: Since different essential oils have different scents, I recommend smelling an essential oil to make sure it doesn’t make you wrinkle your nose before adding it to your homemade face wash for acne!
One final note: Don’t get too hung up on the process of selecting the perfect essential oil combo… since this homemade face wash for acne is so darn simple you can always make it using a different essential oil combination next time! 🙂
