The summertime heat is wonderful, but it can wreak havoc on our skin, especially on your face. We produce a lot of oil in our skin, which cause acne and breakouts to take place. These three simple ingredients will help put up a fight! Who wants to take selfies with zits and blemishes? Not me! So I have found a natural remedy that will clear up those annoying zits that appear out of nowhere. So, if you are tired of sending money of products try out this simple remedy!
DIY Zit-Fighting Treatment
1/2 clove fresh garlic crushed and finely mashed
½ teaspoon jojoba oil
1-2 drops of tea tree oil
Take half a garlic clove and chop finely or mash it really well with the back of a spoon (or mortar and pestle). Add 1/2 teaspoon jojoba oil to the garlic. Be sure not to substitute another oil in place of jojoba as some oils can clog your pores, defeating the purpose of the treatment. Add 1-2 drops tea tree oil and mix.
Next, apply to any acne spots or pimples with a clean finger or Q-tip. Don’t be afraid to leave pieces of garlic on pimples to let them work their magic. Leave the spot treatment on overnight and then wash off in the morning. The mixture can be stored in the refrigerator for a few days, but again, fresh is best for potency.
