Homemade Acne Treatment August 2, 2010

I was talking with some girlfriends today and they thought I should share some of the natural recipes I found online for facial masks and cleansers. So the first one is a strawberry acne treatment. According to what I read, strawberries have the highest content of natural salicylic acid, the agent in many acne treatment products in the store. Here’s whatcha do:

2 cups of strawberries, pureed or blended

1 cup of yogurt

1/2 cup of oatmeal, uncooked

Mash together in in a bowl and let sit for ten minutes. Apply in circular motion (so the seeds and the oatmeal can ex-foliate your skin). Leave the mask on for about 20 minutes, then wash of gently with a wash cloth.

I was having break out issues for years and this is the recipe I used to clear mine up. Everyone’s skin is different, so be patient… miracles don’t happen over night. Try this once or twice a week. DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO STRAWBERRIES!
