Up until recently I still battled w/acne and uncontrolable oil. Until recently . . .
A few years ago, after gleaning from several books about homemade skin care, I started making my own modified formula for oily skin. It is AWESOME. It has completely renewed my complexion - it's soft and smooth and clear - and has completely gotten rid of one of my DD's back acne. It's so simple . . . here's how it's done . . .
Here's what you need:
~an empty bottle (approx 7-10 oz)
~a bottle of UNscented liquid Castile soap (I recommend Dr. Bronner's)
~essntial oils: Tea Tree, Lavender & Rosemary; not only b/c of their wonderful fragrances but also b/c of their antibacterial benefits.
2) Add your essential oils ~ 20 drops of Tea Tree, 20 drops of Lavender and 10 drops of Rosemary.
3) Shake. One pump of soap (or a little larger than a quarter) on a clean, wet wash cloth OR in your wet hands will be plenty.
DO NOT USE THIS TO TAKE OFF EYE MAKE-UP!!!
Since it is made w/anitbacterial oils it also makes a great shampoo for oily hair and/or an anitbacterial hand wash at your sink.
If you try this, let me know how it works for you!!
