A lot of things have changed since I was a teenager. Teens today are much more knowledgeable about sex, drugs, and a lot of other things I would prefer they stay ignorant of. They are plugged in, much more aware of current events, and for the most part a lot 'older' than I was at their age. One thing that has NOT changed since I was a teen is the constant battle with acne. No matter how many times they wash their face or how many times I tell them to eat less fatty foods they still struggle with acne on a regular basis. I am spending a fortune on all natural acne products in hopes of helping them get a handle on it. However, all natural acne products are extremely expensive! I decided to try my hand at making an all natural acne scrub recipe to see if it would help save money while still clarifying their skin. (And my own when my hormones get out of whack!)
I chose a few key ingredients for this acne scrub recipe based on certain criteria. Lemon juice is an astringent to help remove oil. Honey and tea tree oil both have natural antibacterial properties. Oatmeal is a very gentle exfoliant. All of these things combined make this acne scrub recipe both gentle on the skin AND an effective acne treatment for my hormonal teens. Make this up fresh every time you need to use it and a little goes a long way. You really only need a few tablespoons of this acne scrub every time you wash your face.
