How Sarah Cured Her Acne In 8 Months

The routine

  1. Morning face wash with Micellar cleansing water. I recommend a better alternative as Micellar water tends to leave a surface residue on the skin which can act like a film, blocking pores and oil distribution.

  2. Followed by Benzoyl Peroxide 5% acne treating cream. Ask your derm first and for the love of god, avoid this if you already have dry skin. This is powerful stuff.

    Healthy alternative: Tea tree oil (2 drops - don’t exceed!) + aloe vera gel (1 tbsp)

    To target specific pimples, lightly soak a q-tip in diluted tea tree oil and dab on the perimeter of the pimples. Some people use undiluted tea tree oil as a spot treatment but this can cause irritation if your skin is more on the dry or sensitive side.

    Note: when I say diluted without any further explanation, it usually means diluted in carrier oils.

    Essential oils (like tea tree) are oil-soluble and don’t dilute in water but you can use aloe vera gel (best from your own plant.) It’s thick in consistency and mixes well with the tea tree oil.

  3. After that, she smooths Vitamin C powder and Jojoba oil + Turmeric EO (properly diluted) over her face to brighten the skin.

  4. For night time she uses Willow Tea Tree Cleanser from 100% pure. I really love that company.

    If not that cleanser then she uses equal parts filtered water and jojoba oil - dabbing a cotton ball in it and wiping off the eye makeup first and then the rest after. 

  5. As a final step she moisturizes with Squalene oil. There’s not much research done yet with Squalene oil so as an alternative, I recommend you check out: https://prettyblooming.com/moisturizer-with-essential-oils/
