Homemade Acne and Facial Cream

homemade facial cream acne

No matter how old you are, there are always times your face may have a pimple or dry spots. 

This facial cream is perfect for those times, or repair during the winter months. 

Facial cream made from my kitchen:

Coconut oil as the base, 3 drops of each: tea tree oil, lavender oil, lemongrass oil.

Mix together and keep in a jar. Use a 1/2 teaspoon or so to rub into skin. 

I’m using jojoba oil on my growing belly, but I didn’t put any in the face cream. 

These ingredients were specifically chosen based on their healing ability. 

Coconut oil 

Coconut oil is an amazing natural moisturizer. It is also antibacterial and antimicrobial. 

Tea Tree oil

Tea tree oil is also antifungal, antimicrobial, antibacterial. Which makes it perfect for cleansing. 

Lavender oil

Lavender oil is soothing for irritated and inflamed skin. 

Lemongrass oil

“Lemongrass is also fungicidal, which means it helps cure fungus infections on the skin. The herb also acts as an astringent, which constricts the skin. This helps to minimize pores, limit the secretions of oil and provide a temporary skin-firming treatment.” From Livestrong.com

Here are the oils that I use:

Update:

Adam used this homemade cream as a moisturizer for an inflamed area  on his forehead. After using it for a week, he really did see an improvement!
