Acne Skin Care Recipes That Can Solve Your Acne Problems
There are a lot of products in the market for those who need acne treatments and those who have acne prone skin. What some people may not know is that there are actually acne skin care recipes you can use to make your own skin care solutions. These acne skin care recipes are created from ingredients that can be easily found around your house and in your kitchen.
Since acne is often caused by the production of excess oils in a person's skin, one of the acne skin care recipes you will need to create is a facial wash that will help remove the dirt that is clogged in your pores as well as remove the excess oils that are found on your skin. One such ingredient that will help get rid of the excess oils is apple cider vinegar or any naturally fermented vinegar. Of course, since vinegar is pretty acidic, you will need to be careful with it and use it in a diluted form. You will need to mix one part vinegar, one part apple cider or any other natural vinegar, and around 8 to 10 parts water to get the kind of safe mixture you will need to cleanse your face with. You can use a piece of cotton or a cotton ball dipped in this solution to wipe off excess oils on your skin as well as remove deep seated dirt from your skin.
Another one of the more commonly used acne skin care recipes that you can create in the comfort of your own home is an egg-white mask. This simple mask consists of nothing but a couple of stiffly beaten egg-whites. All you need to do is beat a couple of egg-whites until they are nice and fluffy and smear them on your face. You will have to let this mask sit for a few minutes or until it dries out, and then wash it off with clean, warm water. Then, pat dry with a clean towel. Other acne skin care recipes that use egg-whites sometimes use dry oatmeal in the mixture to help draw out the excess oils in the skin. You can use this egg-white and oatmeal combination on your skin, but you must be careful not to use it more than once or twice a week since this may easily dry your skin out as well.
You can also create acne skin care recipes or combination recipes based on ingredients that are known to help kill bacteria as well as remove the elements that cause acne. You can add baking soda to your egg white mixture or your vinegar solution, or you can use baking soda mixed with a little distilled or purified water as a gentle exfoliating agent for your acne prone skin.
