Let’s do coffee! No computer, no email, just you and me. As we sip on our freshly-brewed coffee, in over-sized chairs, you’ll probably notice I possess a few characteristics.

First, despite my introvert-nature, I’m bubbly and talkative. At first I appear quiet and reserved, but give me a few seconds, buy me a coffee, and this gal can chat, even crack jokes. Second, activity is my game. I’ll sit and enjoy the coffee, but I love to be active.  I pack an enormous amount of energy in this little five foot frame.  Energy I intend to put toward good use.

So, here I am.  A secret introvert with a bubbly, talkative personality loaded with enough energy to power a house. Behind all those characteristics, there’s one trait that has always left  me feeling a bit “less”.

Since my early twenties, I’ve dealt with scaring and mild acne. At first I thought diet had a large part to play.  I tried everything recommended from cutting out cheese (no!!!!) to leaving my favorite coffee mug in the drawer (not a pretty picture). After months without positive results, I happily welcomed back cheese and my morning cup of joe.

Commercials did their job and soon I found myself on a never-ending shopping spree, buying every “acne-fighting” product on store shelves. The creams, lotions, spot-treatments, and mineral makeups left me poor and without any acne relief.

Finally, a couple years ago, a very welcomed “aha” moment arrived. What if the solution wasn’t my “clean” diet or finding the perfect store-bought product?  I took a deep breath, bought a few ingredients and ventured down the scary road of “DIY”. I felt overwhelmed. “I can’t possibly make my own beauty products! Bread? That’s easy, but lotion, astringent, and make-up? No way!”

Within a few weeks my acne greatly diminished, my skin glowed, and my confidence returned. Ditching the toxic ingredients in store-bought face soaps, lotions, and acne-fighting gels actually cleared my skin!

Today, my beauty routine consists of simple homemade concoctions.  Jojoba or almond oil are my cleansers, a homemade astringent balances my skin’s PH,  and homemade lotion nourishes my skin.

This honey oatmeal mask is just one of the simple homemade products I use when pampering my skin and fighting off acne. Let’s take a look at few ingredients:

Oats: contains anti-inflammatory properties and saponins, a cleansing agent, making oats perfect for all skin types, including sensitive skin.

Honey: with antibacterial and antioxidant properties, honey is perfect for achieving that “glow” while fighting acne and nourishing aging skin. Honey also naturally opens pores.

Lemon: contains antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to fight off acne and blackheads. Lemon juice’s citric acid can help fade dark spots and acne scars. Lemon juice can also help cut down on an abundance of oil.

Tea Tree Essential Oil: Known for its antiseptic properties, tea tree essential oil has been used for everything from treating acne to dandruff.

I use my Honey Oatmeal Acne Mask once to twice a week before bed. First, I cleanse my face using jojoba or almond oil and then proceed with the mask. After fifteen minutes, I rinse with cold water and follow with homemade astringent and lotion.
