Treatment Gels, Lotions, Creams

How to Make Natural Acne Gel

  • 50 g Aloe Vera Gel
  • 10 drops Geranium oil
  • 10 drops Lavender oil
  • 6 drops Lemongrass oil or Tea Tree oil

Mix all ingredients well and apply to affected areas 1-2 times daily.

DIY Acne Medication (Recipe)

  • 8 d. tea tree
  • 6 d. bergamot
  • 4 d. lavender: in .75 oz of jojoba oil

Apply to the face for acne breakouts every evening, massaging around, not on, the pimple. Mix recipe with cream for daytime use (do not go into sun while using). Add a few drops of carrot oil to the mixture after skin has cleared to reduce spotting from previous breakouts.

Quick Pimple Zapper Recipe

To clear zits quickly, keep a small sealed jar of this natural topical remedy on hand (it keeps for a few months): Combine 2 tablespoons of green Clay, 1 tablespoon of Goldenseal powder (Hydratis canadensis), 2 to 3 drops of Tea Tree oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), and enough water to form a paste.



Apply to your Acne blemish at bedtime and leave it on all night. The Clay dries up pore-clogging oil, and the Goldenseal and Tea Tree oil kill the bacteria that cause infection.

Acne Essential Oil Blend

  • 1 ounce light cold-pressed vegetable carrier oil (such as apricot kernel).
  • 10 drops lavender essential oil
  • 7 drops tea tree or New Zealand tea tree (Manuka) essential oil
  • 2 drops bergamot essential oil*
  • 1 drops geranium essential oil

or without bergamot:

  • 1 ounce light cold-pressed vegetable carrier oil (such as apricot kernel).
  • 12 drops lavender essential oil
  • 7 drops tea tree or New Zealand tea tree (Manuka) essential oil
  • 1 drops geranium essential oil

Special Precaution: Avoid exposure to the sun for at least 12 hours after applying this oil since bergamot is a phototoxic oil. There is a special version of bergamot that you can get called “bergaptene free” that eliminates the phototoxic properties of the oil.

Pour the selected carrier oil into a very clean bottle (amber glass is best) and then add the essential oils and tightly close the bottle. Roll the bottle to gently mix the oils for a minute or two. Apply a small amount to the face, neck or back, but be certain to avoid the eyes, lips, nostrils and inside the ears. Gently roll the bottle before each use to ensure the essential oils are properly mixed.

Home Medicine for Acne – Pimple Cream

  • 1/2 teaspoon goldenseal root powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon calendula powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon green clay
  • 14 drops tea tree oil
  • 14 drops grapefruit seed extract

Mix together the ingredients to form a paste. Apply directly to pimples and leave on for several hours, or overnight.

Acne, Blackhead, Oily Skin Treatment Masks

Potato, Tomato Facial Mask to Help Prevent Breakouts

This mask is your new secret weapon for cleansing oily skin and preventing future acne breakouts.

  • 1 tomato
  • 2 Tbsp potato flour
  • 1-2 drops Basil essential oil

Peel the tomato and remove seeds. In a bowl, mash tomato and add essential oil. Add potato flour and stir until a paste is formed. To use, apply to face and leave on for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water and pat skin dry.

Egg Lining Blackhead Remedy

I'm from Kentucky and my mother taught me this trick to heal pimples. I began using it for problem (oily, blackhead) areas and it works well.

First wash your face with warm water to open the pores and make extraction easier. Crack open a raw egg and remove (tear) a piece of the fine translucent lining (skin) between the albumin and the shell. This “liner” is a purifier for the chicken embryo. Its job is to draw out impurities away from the egg sack. It also works well to draw out unwanted oil and dirt.

Place the inner egg side of this skin (not the one that lines the shell) on your nose, across your chin or just small enough to cover a pimple. Let it dry and as it dries it will pull the blackheads, additional oil and dirt into the egg skin. Dab with warm water to remove.

It will not peal like a Biore strip. It will just roll off. The egg lining is much more sturdy in the organic/non-antibiotic treated eggs verses the supermarket variety which tend to have thinner shells and less pliable linings. Hope this inexpensive alternative helps you!

Home Medicine for Oily Skin

Beat together 1 egg white, 1 tsp spirits of camphor, 1 heaping Tbsp skim milk powder and a scant drop of essential oil of mint. First apply a thin film of odorless castor oil to the skin , then apply a thick layer of the egg white mask. Lie back for about 15 minutes. Wash off with warm water, then rinse with an apple cider vinegar and water solution or witch hazel.

Milk of Magnesia Blackhead Remedy

This is a great way to rid yourself of blackheads.

Take Milk of Magnesia (the cheap non-brand name stuff, you won't be taking it internally) and spread a thin layer over blackhead problem areas, let dry and wash off with a damp washcloth. Do this once or twice a week and you won't need those pore strips and it doesn't hurt like them either!

Toners, Cleansers, Tonics for Acne and Oily Skin

Homemade Tomato Tonic for Oily Skin Recipe

  • 1 ripe, red tomato
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal

Peel and seed the tomato. Mash the pulp with the cornmeal. Massage skin thoroughly with the mixture. Leave on for a few minutes. Rinse with cool water.

Greasy Skin Tonic Home Remedy

  • 6 drops Bergamot
  • 4 drops Lavender
  • 100 ml water (preferably bottled spring water)

Place ingredients into a bottle, cap and shake vigorously. Shake before each use.

Elderflower Water for Acne

This is good for blemished skin.

  • 1 large handfull of elderflowers
  • 2 cups (16fl oz.) boiling water

Rinse the elderflowers, then put them into a large jar. Cover them with the boiling water, cover the jar, then let them steep overnight. Strain out the liquid next day and bottle it. Keep in a cool place.

Garlic Pore Cleanser Recipe

Garlic can clear out your pores. Apply this paste to your face. This will make your skin tingle.

Peel and mash eight fresh Garlic Cloves (or, i use crushed Garlic from a jar). Leave on your face for 15 minutes. Wash off with a warm cloth. Very smelly. Garlic gets even smellier as it rinses off, but the good news is that dead skin comes off with it. If you can stand the stink, try it. Keep it away from your eyes.

There are many home remedies for acne, but very few natural remedies are both safe and effective. Treating acne with products containing harsh chemicals is never a good idea for your skin. Getting rid of whiteheads by squeezing them or blackhead removal with salicylic acid is also not advisable.
