Acne Treatment

Category: Miscellaneous Recipes


2-3 tsps. Dried Basil

1 cup Boiling Water

This treatment is for acne that doesn't seem to respond favorably to any other treatment. Steep the basil in the boiling water for 10-20 minutes. Allow it to cool, then apply it with a clean, cotton ball.

Skin Degreaser
1/2 cup Cooked Oatmeal

1 Egg White

1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice

1/2 cup Mashed Apple

When you want to take care of a problematic oily area, beat these ingredients into a smooth paste. A food processor works great! Apply the paste to your face in a semi-thick coating. Leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse clean.
