Acne Prone Skin? Check out my new Zit Zapper and Facial Serum recipes!

I’ve struggled with acne since going off hormonal birth control a couple years ago and it’s wreaked havoc on my self-esteem.  Since then I’ve been on the quest for the perfect skin care regimen to help keep my acne under control.  In fact, searching for the perfect facial cleanser was what led me down the crunchy rabbit hole and I’ve been all in ever since! Over the years I have tried many different natural approaches to skin care including Oil Cleansing (OCM), cleaning my face with honey, African black soap, castile soap, and water only.  Most cleansing methods strip my face of its natural oil and while this may sound like a good thing it’s really not.  See, if you strip the skin of its natural, protective oils then it over produces sebum to compensate which can clog pores even more.  So these days I tend to use water only to clean my face, a Lemon Sugar Scrub to exfoliate every week or so, my Melrose and Witch Hazel astringent (find that recipe here in my blog post When You Vacation with an OIL Addict!) and a spot treatment for those particularly obnoxious pimples.  Historically I’ve just used Tea Tree oil as my spot treatment and while it works well on day to day pimples it doesn’t tackle the tough ones as much as I’d like.  I had used Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick in the past and was pretty happy with it overall.  I’d always wanted to make my own DIY version and had finally built up my oil collection enough I thought I’d give it a go.  So let’s check out the ingredients in the Burt’s Bees roll-on and why they are good for acne.

Doctor Burt’s Herbal Blemish Stick ingredients:

SD Alcohol 40-B – This is basically denatured alcohol.  It bothers me that this is the first ingredient on the list because that means that it is the ingredient of highest concentration in the product. There’s nothing really wrong with this ingredient but honestly it doesn’t really add much to the recipe either.  I tend to avoid alcohol because it has a drying effect on the skin and can strip the skin of it’s natural oils.

Calendula extract – Calendula is more commonly known as Marigold.  It is often used in skin care products because of it’s ability to calm the skin.  Calendula may help reduce redness and helps cleanse the skin of pore clogging gunk and reduce acne breakouts.

Borage extract – Borage, or Starflower, is an annual herb native to the Mediterranean region.  It’s remarkably effective at soothing irritated or damaged skin and can help calm skin by reducing swelling and redness.  Borage is high in gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which is a fatty acid that is beneficial in maintaining healthy skin.  Borage oil or extract are excellent ingredients to add to DIY skin care recipes help reduce the appearance of acne scarring or redness and irritation from skin conditions like rosacea or eczema.

Yarrow extract – Yarrow is actually a common weed that grows native in the Northern Hemisphere.  It is an ancient herbal medicine, often referred to as Soldier’s herb and Nosebleed grass, known to staunch bleeding and reduce pain.  It’s also renowned for it’s ability to bring down a fever and help clear the sinuses! As far as skin care is concerned, yarrow is great for oily skin to help balance the oil, draw out blackheads, and tighten your pores! Do yourself a favor and google the medicinal uses of Yarrow.  Its an amazing herb to add to your herbal first aid kit!

Parsley extract – Parsley extract is excellent for helping cleanse and purify the skin which helps reduce acne breakouts.  In addition, parsley also contains high amounts of Vitamin C, chlorophyll and Vitamin K which are good for reducing dark circles and puffiness under your eyes.

Willowbark extract – Willow bark is usually harvested from white willow trees and is highly valued as a skin care ingredient because it is a natural source of salicylic acid (yup, the same stuff that is in over the counter acne products like Neutragena’s acne line, Clearasil, and Clean & Clear!).  In addition to helping reduce breakouts, willow bark extract also helps promote youthful, radiant skin by minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It also contains antioxidants that help fight free radicals and promote skin rejuvenation!

Lemon oil – Lemon essential oil helps balance overactive oil glands in the skin and encourages exfoliation of dead skin cells, both of which can clog pores and lead to breakouts.

Fennel oil – Fennel essential oil encourages skin cell repair and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It helps balance oil production without over drying the skin.

Water – used to dilute the mixture.  However, water can also promote the growth of bacteria in DIY products so I tend to not use it, or use distilled water if I do add to my products.

Tea Tree oil – Tea tree oil has been my go to for acne spot treatment for years.  It is renowned for it’s ability to not only dry out pimples but reduce acne breakouts when used regularly.

Juniper oil – Juniper essential oil helps cleanse and promotes healing by stimulate blood circulation.  It helps remove toxins and purifies the skin.  Overuse can increase redness, however.

Eucalyptus oil – Eucalyptus essential oil helps cleanse the skin and unclog pores.  In addition, it helps reduce inflammation that may result from acne breakouts.

Zit Zapper

Zit Zapper: A spot treatment for Acne-Prone Skin

Combine the following ingredients in a 3 ml roll-on:

  • 5 drops Tea Tree
  • 5 drops Lemon
  • 5 drops Lavender (I added Lavender because of it’s ability to help calm and soothe irritated skin, especially since I didn’t have an calendula extract in my recipe.  In addition, Lavender essential oil also helps regulate oil production and promotes healing.  I tend to pick at my acne so it’s always nice to add healing oils to my skincare regimen.)
  • 4 drops Ginger (I chose to add Ginger because it removes toxins and stimulates circulation.  In addition, it promotes a youthful, radiant complexion by helping rejuvenate the skin and improving skin’s elasticity.)
  • 3 drops Fennel
  • 3 drops Juniper 
  • 3 drops Eucalyptus Globulus (because this is the Eucalyptus I had on hand, but Eucalyptus Radiata might actually be a better choice because it tends to be lighter and more gentle than Globulus, making it the preferred chemotype for skincare)
  • top off with White Willow Bark extract (I bought mine from Mountain Rose Herbs)

Next time I might actually make my own Calendula and Borage extract to add as well.  If I do that I’ll probably use a larger, 4 or 5 ml, roll on.  Both Calendula and Borage (as well as White Willow Bark) can be purchased from Mountain Rose Herbs if you are interested in making it your own.  Extracts aren’t difficult to make at all.  Check out Humblebee and Me’s post below for a recipe that includes Calendula extract and Borage oil.

*Note: This is a strong mixture and is only intended to be used as a spot treatment, not all over your face.  If you have sensitive skin, do a patch test first.  You may want to reduce the amount of essential oils or dilute with something like Calendula extract or Borage oil.

New & Improved Facial Serum

Perhaps you’ve been following me for awhile and remember my DIY Facial Serum from back in August of last year.  I still stand by that facial serum as a good starting point for anyone wanting to make their own skin care products.  It’s wonderfully moisturizing and I used it for months.  However, as my daughter started eating more solids and decreased the amount of breastmilk she was demanding day to day my hormones started returning back to “normal” (which is anything but) and my face started breaking out like a teenager’s again (sad face). My DIY Facial Serum uses fractionated coconut oil as a base which feels lovely on the skin but does have a high comedogenic rating (meaning it can cause acne breakouts).  Coconut oil rates a 4, meaning it has a “fairly high” chance of clogging pores.  So naturally I wanted to reduce anything that would contribute to my breakouts.  For awhile I switched to jojoba oil, which has a comedogenic rating of 2, or “moderately low” chance.  I was pretty pleased with this combo for awhile.

Recently, however, I was hearing a lot of buzz about Rosehip Seed Oil for skincare.  Rosehip seed oil is chalk full of vitamins, essential fatty acids and antioxidants that help hydrate the skin, relieves dry, itchy skin, reduces dark circles and minimizes the appearance of scaring.  Plus, it’s lightweight and non greasy, making it an ideal carrier oil for facial serums. And it has an even lower comedogenic rating that jojoba (1 = “low”) so I figured I’d give it a shot.

See how other carrier oils measure up with regards to comedogenic ratings here from Beneficial Botanicals.

I’d also been really curious about a new-to-me essential oil blend, White Angelica.  White Angelica is Young Living’s proprietary blend of Bergamot, Myrrh, Geranium, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Rosewood, Ylang Ylang, Spruce, Hyssop, Melissa, and Rose in a Sweet Almond oil carrier.  While there are tons of amazing uses for White Angelica, including emotional healing, meditation, and Raindrop massage, all of these oils have amazing skin care properties and many are quite expensive (and as a result not members of my growing collection yet).  Let’s look at each of these oils individually.

Bergamot – Bergamot is a tropical citrus fruit with a lovely fragrance.  It is well known for it’s cleansing and immune enhancing properties.  In addition, it helps reduce the appearance of scars or age spots on the skin resulting in a more even skin tone.

Myrrh – Myrrh comes from a dried resin extracted from the Commiphora myrrha tree, which is in the same family as the Frankincense tree.  It has a long history of medicinal use, highly valued for its wound healing properties, as well as an ingredient in incense and holy oil for ritual and religious ceremonies.  As far as skin care benefits, Myrrh promotes healing and helps soothe minor skin irritations like chapped or cracked skin and acne.  It helps sustain healthy looking skin and promotes a more youthful, radiant appearance by reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Geranium – Geranium essential oil has a long history as a beneficial ingredient in skin care.  Even the ancient Egyptians used Geranium oil to help promote beautiful, radiant skin.  It helps defy the effects of aging by improving muscle tone and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  In addition, Geranium essential oil helps reduce inflammation and has been used to help soothe acne and other skin irritations by promoting cell growth and healing.

Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood – Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood is renowned for it’s healing properties.  It helps cleanse and protect the skin from infection resulting from acne, sores, or other wounds and is often added to skin care and beauty products for it’s ability to help tighten skin tone and minimize the appearance of scars and age spots.

Rosewood – Rosewood oil is extracted from the Aniba rosaeodora, an evergreen tree indigenous to Peru and Brazil.  It is a member of the Laurel family of plants like bay, camphor, cassia, and cinnamon.  Rosewood oil has a warm, woodsy yet spicy, floral fragrance that has been used in the perfume industry since the 1900’s.  In addition to it’s alluring fragrance, Rosewood oil helps fight the signs of aging by regenerating skin cell growth and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps balance sebum production thereby helping to reduce acne breakouts.

Ylang Ylang – Ylang Ylang is steam distilled from the signature yellow flowers of the ylang ylang tree native to the South Pacific Islands.  As you may imagine, it has a delicate yet romantic floral fragrance.  In addition, Ylang Ylang essential oil has amazing skin benefits.  It helps promote the appearance of healthy skin and hair by balancing sebum production, soothing skin irritations, cleansing the skin and promotes healing, and reducing redness and inflammation.

Spruce – Spruce essential oil is distilled from the needles of the Spruce tree and helps cleanse and purify the skin thereby helping to maintain the appearance of healthy looking skin.

Hyssop – Hyssop is a sacred oil referenced in many ancient texts, including the Bible, for it’s restorative health benefits.  Hyssop not only helps support healthy respiratory and digestive systems but also to help relieve pain and promote a sense of calm.  As for skin care benefits, Hyssop essential oil helps soothe skin irritations and reduce the appearance of scars and age spots.

Melissa – Melissa, or more commonly known as Lemon Balm, is a plant in the mint family.  The essential oil is distilled from the tiny buds and seeds of the plant.  It takes somewhere between 3 and 7 tons of plant material to yield 1 pound of essential oil which makes it one of the more pricey oils.  It is a gentle oil known for it’s ability to help soothe irritation and rejuvenate the skin.

and last but not least, Rose – Rose, ah how I covet thee…  Rose essential oil is probably the most expensive essential oil that Young Living sells because of the sheer volume of rose petals required to make a small 5 ml bottle.  But it is highly prized for many reasons, the least of which is its ability to moisturize, calm and soothe red or irritated skin.   Research suggests that it may also help reduce acne breakouts and regenerate skin cell growth!  It’s a must-have for anti-aging DIY beauty products!

So, even though I can’t afford to add oils like Myrrh, Royal Hawaiian Sandalwood, Melissa, or Rose to my collection just yet, I’m thrilled to have them in a nice affordable (only $28 Wholesale) little blend like White Angelica! So naturally, I wanted to find a way to incorporate this into my New & Improved DIY Facial Serum! Without further ado, here’s the recipe:

General Musings on Getting Started with Essential Oils and a Lemon Sugar Scrub Recipe to Share the Love!

Sorry I’ve been absent the last week! I was busy planning my first Essential Oil Make ‘N Take party that I hosted yesterday! We had so much fun using essential oils to make home, health and beauty products.  It can be really overwhelming to know where to start with essential oils so I always suggest taking a personal inventory of the areas in your life that you are unsatisfied with and starting your research there.  Maybe you want to rid your home of toxic cleaning chemicals.  Maybe you want to find natural hygiene and beauty routines.  Or maybe you just want to support your family’s health and wellness.  Whatever the need, there’s an oil for that! I love doing research on ways that essential oils can enhance the lives of my friends and readers because I learn so much about what these amazing oils can do! So feel free to message me with your areas of concern and I’d be glad to help!

At my Make ‘N Take party this past weekend I shared several options for my guests to choose from.  My skin has gone bonkers lately! I’m not sure if it’s hormones or my body trying to detox since I started adding Lemon essential oil to help me meet my daily water intake, but whatever the reason it’s not happy.  So I was most excited to try out a new recipe that I shared with my guests, a Lemon Sugar Scrub.  This recipe can be used on both the body and face. It’s ideal for rough spots like feet, knees, elbows and hands.  It’s also great for nail beds and cuticles.  And with a few simple modifications this scrub makes an excellent choice for people who suffer from occasional breakouts because it contains ingredients that are beneficial to acne-prone skin:

  • Lemon essential oil helps tightens pores and evens out the skin tone.
  • Sugar helps remove dead skin cells and cleans pores.
  • Substitute Extra Virgin Olive Oil for the Coconut Oil as it is less comedogenic (less likely to clog pores) and helps heals acne scarring.
  • And adding a bit of Honey helps prevent future breakouts.

I tried the recipe out last night and it was lovely! I love a good scrub and felt like my skin was so much smoother afterwards! Plus, the olive oil helped prevent my skin from feeling overly dry after I rinsed it off.  This one is definitely a keeper!

So without further ado, here it is:

Lemon Sugar Scrub

  • 1 cup of Sugar
  • ¼ cup Coconut Oil (can substitute EVOO, especially for acne-prone skin)
  • 5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
  • 1 tsp Honey (optional)

Mix ingredients and store in 8 oz glass jar.

As a body scrub: Apply to body, paying extra close attention to elbows, knees, feet and hands (nails and cuticles especially), and rub in circular motions for 3 to 5 minutes.  Rinse.  Enjoy the silky softness of your impossibly smooth skin.

As a face scrub: Clean face as usual with warm to hot water to help open up pores.  Apply scrub to clean face in gentle, circular motions.  Be cautious of using on open wounds, as lemon has a tendency to sting. Leave on for a few minutes and rinse with cool water.

** The above is not my original recipe.  I modified it from one I found in one of my YL business Facebook groups and regretfully cannot find the post again to give proper credit.  So if it’s your original recipe, let me know and I’ll gladly give proper citation.

My All Natural Skin Care Routine: Plus My Favorite DIY Facial Serum Recipe (using Essential Oils)!

I just hosted my first Essential Oils 101 class two weekends ago and had so much fun sharing all about the oils I’m so passionate about with a great group of lovely ladies! And it occurred to me that it has been awhile since I had written a blog post about how I use my essential oils in my daily life.  I’ve shared a lot about using essential oils to clean and a few hygiene sort of recipes so figured it was time to share some of my beauty routine with y’all! First, a bit about my journey.  My husband and I started trying to conceive after our 1 year wedding anniversary, on May 19, 2013.  I had been on hormonal birth control pills for 17 years and when I went off of them my whole body went bonkers! I later learned that I had PCOS (Poly-Cystic Ovarian Syndrome) and that’s what was causing my crazy hormonal issues and making it so difficult for us to conceive.  My hormonal imbalances were most obvious with my skin.  My once beautiful, soft, smooth skin suddenly became a nightmare of crazy teenage-type acne breakouts… at 32 years old!!!  I seriously tried everything shy of going to a dermatologist (which would’ve taken me 2+ months to get in and they likely would’ve prescribed medication that I’d have to discontinue when I got pregnant and/or antibiotics which I didn’t really want to take).  As a measure of last resort I started researching natural alternatives to skin care to find away to help clear up my skin.  That was when I discovered Crunchy Betty’s blog and started my adventures in living a natural lifestyle.

When I decided to rid my life of toxic chemicals, starting with my skin and beauty routines, I literally threw out 20+ bottles of skincare products, both drug store and expensive department store brands, none of which worked to control my acne. I found a fair bit of success using honey and even more luck when I switched to the oil cleansing method (OCM) to cleanse my face while I was having extreme acne breakouts.  My skin cleared almost completely once I got pregnant and my hormones got back in check (and my skin has so far stayed clear since having my darling little daughter with only the occasional breakouts) and I’m lazy, so I no longer use either of these methods.  But they were great alternatives to traditional, chemical filled store-bought cleansers. So rather than reinvent the wheel, here are some links to Crunchy Betty’s blog posts on both these methods:

Crunchy Betty’s Honey Challenge – all about how to wash your face with honey!

Nitty Gritty on the Oil Cleansing Method – a great intro to oil cleansing with descriptions of the various oils and the skin types they work best with.

Trying and Troubleshooting the Oil Cleansing Method – a follow up to her previous post that gives 5 new tips she learned through 2 years of trials and tribulations with the oil cleansing method.  Read both posts before you begin for the best success!

* I will add this, I personally had the most luck with a combo of Castor Oil and Jojoba Oil when I was using OCM to help reduce acne breakouts.  But try out different oils and find the best combo for your skin type.  You don’t have to have acneic skin for OCM to work for you!

So, want to know my current skin care routine? Of course you do! That’s why you’re reading this blog post after all, right?

  • Water only to clean my face.  No seriously, that’s it! When i take a shower I just rub my face with circular motions using hot water only.  As I’ve mentioned before I’m pretty lazy and I only actually “wash” my face at night.
  • Thayer’s Rosewater Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Toner as an astringent. I apply this with a cotton round after my showers at night and once again in the morning to get rid of any extra oil that my skin produced overnight. I love the rose petal one for it’s added moisturizing effect and lovely scent but I’ve also used the plain and the lavender as well.  I spend the extra money on Thayer’s because all the other brands I could find in the grocery/drug store witch hazel had alcohol in it and I didn’t want the drying effect that alcohol has on my skin. More info about Thayer’s Witch Hazel varieties here.
  • Tea Tree Essential Oil as my acne spot treatment – Tea Tree Oil is a natural antiseptic and can help cleanse the skin as well as dry up blemishes and reduce future breakouts. I use it “neat” – just a dab on a qtip, applied directly to the blemish.  Note: Tea Tree Oil may cause skin sensitivity with repeated exposure.  I haven’t had any problems yet and have been using it for a couple years now but I do personally know people that have had a reaction to it.  
  • Coconut Oil as eye makeup remover. If you haven’t caught my review of my awesome mascara, check it out here: I’ve found my perfect (naturally based, cruelty-free) mascara!  The downside is that I can no longer be lazy and absolutely must take my eye makeup off or it won’t apply right the next day and it doesn’t come off with water only or with my astringent.
  • DIY Natural Sunscreen as my daytime moisturizer. If you missed my previous post with the recipe, check it out here: DIY Natural Sunscreen
  • DIY Facial Serum as my nighttime moisturizer.  You want the recipe? Here it is!

DIY Facial Serum

DIY Facial Serum:

Ingredients:

  • Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • Melrose essential oil blend – Young Living’s proprietary blend of Tea Tree, Rosemary, and Clove essential oils designed to soothe and support healthy skin. The Tea Tree and Rosemary oils have an added benefit of a cleansing effect and the Clove helps support a healthy immune system.
  • Frankincense essential oil – a natural astringent that helps soothe and tone the skin as well as supporting a healthy immune system.  May help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to promote more radiant, younger looking skin!
  • Lavender essential oil – In addition to having a soothing effect, lavender essential oil is a natural antioxidant and moisturizer that can help soothe irritation as well as detox the skin and protect it from the daily barrage of sun and pollution damage. Plus it has a calming effect and can promote relaxation and a better night’s sleep!

Directions:

Combine 2 oz of Fractionated Coconut Oil with 7 drops each of the essential oils. Shake gently before use and apply to skin at night before bed (could also be used as a daytime moisturizer).  A little goes a long way!

There are lots of other essential oils that have amazing benefits for healthy skin, including but not limited to Carrot Seed (high SPF and rejuvenating effect), Geranium (helps regulate oil production and may reduce breakouts), Myrrh (helps improve skin tone and firmness promoting more youthful looking skin), Neroli (moisturizes, improves skin tone and may reduce fine lines and wrinkles), Patchouli (a natural antiseptic that helps soothe irritation and promotes skin regeneration), Rose (especially moisturizing and can promote healing), and Ylang Ylang (helps control oil production and reduce breakouts).  Feel free to mix and match to find the right combination of essential oils for your particular skin care needs!

I use only Young Living’s 100% pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.  Join Young Living to enjoy a 24% off discount.  Message me for more details or join today here!

** Both my DIY Natural Sunscreen and my DIY Facial Serum use Coconut Oil as the base.  However, Coconut Oil is comedogenic, meaning that it can clog pores.  I haven’t noticed any more than the occasional breakout but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention this.  If you have acne prone skin or have found that Coconut Oil causes breakouts for your skin, here is a list of alternative carrier oils that you could use for your DIY facial serum.  I’ve also included approximate SPF information of the oils that may offer some SPF protection as alternatives to Coconut Oil in the DIY Sunscreen recipe.

Comedogenic Ratings of Alternative Carrier Oils for Facial Serums*:

Will not clog pores:

  • Hemp Seed Oil
  • Mineral Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Sunflower Oil

Low:

  • Castor Oil (SPF 5)

Moderately Low:

  • Almond Oil (SPF 4)
  • Apricot Kernel Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Evening Primrose Oil
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Hazelnut Oil
  • Olive Oil (SPF 4-7)
  • Peanut Oil (do NOT use if you have peanut allergies)
  • Sandalwood Seed Oil
  • Sesame Oil (SPF 1-2)

Moderate:

  • Corn Oil
  • Cotton Seed Oil
  • Soybean Oil

Fairly HIgh:

  • Coconut Oil (SPF 4-7)

High:

  • Wheat Germ Oil

* Adapted from the Lemondroppers Comedogenic Ratings graphic

It’s got a lot of alternative carrier oil choices with descriptions of what types of skin they are good for as well as descriptions of other skin nourishing essential oils not listed here!
