First of all a disclaimer: I’m not a dermatologist, I’m not a sufferer of sever acne, I’m not a skincare expert. I’m just a person who gets a rogue pimple every now and then, and uses this simple DIY acne treatment to help get rid of it. I don’t expect you to replace any prescription treatments with this or to use it all over your entire face all the time (it’s pretty drying that would be a bad idea) But for a random, big whopping honker of a zit every now and then, as a spot treatment, this works winderfully.
I’ve often waxed poetic about the wonders of apple cider vinegar. Honestly it’s amazing stuff, it can be really helpful for a ton of things, and I even use it as a DIY toner from time to time. Tea tree oil is also a well known potent natural ingredient, and it can do some great things for your hair and skin, including treat acne. Knowing this I decided to add some tea tree oil to my ACV toner recipe and use it as a spot treatment one day when I had a particularly annoying ass pimple that just wouldn’t quit…. and it worked better than I even anticipated. It takes down the nasty inflammation and starts the healing process without making the area dry and flakey.
The recipe is super simple
Add ingredients together in an appropriate bottle and shake it up. It’s that simple. It should come out looking something like this…
Some things to note:
Let me know if you try it the next time you get a big old angry pimple, but here’s hoping that doesn’t happen ?
