OUR VOICE

Chances are this morning you utilized regular skin care products to keep blemishes at bay, but surely there must be more you can do to promote clear, glowing skin? Check out these unique ways to fight adult acne to help you get great skin.

Calendula Oil – Introduced to US settlers as early as the 1600’s, Calendula boasts a long history of effectiveness for its healing power. It is especially helpful when used as a local application for simple skin irritations and blemishes causes by dryness. It’s also great for dry hands, chapped wind-blown faces and rough elbows!

Tee Tree Oil – Continued scientific testing has revealed tea tree oil to contain over 100 different chemical compounds, making this singular leaf-derived oil an effective antiseptic and detoxifying agent. In fact, studies have shown that tea tree oil has similar effectiveness to treating acne as benzoyl peroxide but without burning, itching or drying the skin.

Organic Strawberry Leaf Tea – Strawberry leaf contains high levels of calcium and vitamin C and plenty of trace minerals. A favorite to help heal eczema and rashes, you can either use the loose herbs to make a delicious tea or apply it directly onto the face as a hot compress to get glowing skin. (Of course if taking internally, check with your doctor before trying any new supplement).

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar – Apple cider vinegar contains alpha-hydroxy acids to help regulate the pH balance of the skin. To make a fabulous natural toner, simply put one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar into one cup of filtered water, mix thoroughly and dab on skin with a cottonball. Works great to balance and nourish for super soft, clear skin!
