DIY Natural Acne Spot Treatment – Homemade Zit Zapper

Post from: beautytips4her.com

Sometimes the most straightforward solutions are also the most effective ones, but if you think that going to the beauty shop to buy zit zappers is the way to go, think again. I don’t say that commercial products don’t work or that you should avoid them altogether, but I suggest a more effective and less expensive remedy. Whether you are on a budget or merely concerned about the chemical ingredients that find their way into these commercial products, you should keep an eye open to homemade remedies.

Sensitive skin makes it much more difficult to solve seemingly minor problems such as pimples without triggering a chain reaction. Unlike commercial products that keep you guessing about what those ingredients are all about, a homemade solution shatters any doubts. You know what gets added into the mix and you can stick to ingredients that are proven and didn’t cause any nasty side effects in the past.

You’ll Need:
Virgin Coconut Oil
Tea Tree Essential Oil
Lip Balm Tubes

newPostLabel_Instructions

  • Melt 1/8 cup of coconut oil (disregard this process if you already have a melted coconut oil).
  • once the coconut is melted, you can add 5 drops of tea tree essential oil.
  • Mix and blend thoroughly then use an eye drop dropper to add into the lip balm tubes.
  • It should only take a few minutes for the coconut oil to set up.
  • Store the tubes in the fridge so they don’t melt and use as needed as a homemade zit zapper spot targeting treatment. This method works very well for me.

Why these Ingredients?

Coconut Oil is naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal. It helps with redness and puffiness and will fight bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is also antibacterial and anti-fungal so it gives it an extra kick. You can apply this homemade zip zapper as needed.

  • You can use this up to twice a day, but be wary of drying your skin out. start with once a day, before you go to sleep.
