Green tea is really great for fighting acne and skin issue.
I used to use matcha powder but it is quite expensive, so I guess green tea is a good alternative.
I have also used apple cider vinegar and aloe vera before too.
Both are also great.
I love using natural remedies, and I think I should try out the others recommendation you have here and see what works best for me =)
Thanks for sharing this.
You`re welcome Frosteer! Green tea, apple cider vinegar and aloe vera are the commonly used natural ingredients.. but i can assure you that the others work well too. Try the pumpkin mask.. it really does brighten your face!
Hello Hanna. what a great article that’s packed with information I just showed this to my wife and daughters as they love to make their own facial scrubs and they love it. I’m quite sure they will be returning to your website for more articles.
Thank you so much,
You`re most welcome David! I am very glad you and your family find this article very helpful! And for sure, i will try my best to write more articles in the future that will give lots of useful informations. Cheers!
Hi Hanna, thank you for the recipes for making these wonderful facial scrubs and toner,I just love the green tea toner, I have posted this to my facebook page (Ruthlyn’s Store) so my friends can get this information too.
Thanks Ruthlyn! I appreciate you sharing this article! Cheers!
Wow. This is something I can actually use. I love your avocado and cucumber skin remedies. Thanks for the information, This is a good website I will bookmark.
Thanks Maria! I`m glad this article and my site gives you helpful information. All the best!
This post was great. There are a lot of skin care products out there, but most of them seem to be filled with chemicals that I cannot even pronounce. I love the natural ingredients, it is a new take on items we use all the time for other things.
I had bad acne as a teenager, wish I would have seen this then. It would have been extremely helpful!
Thanks Bo! I am glad you find this article helpful!
Hi Hanna, I think this post is really helpful and also important for women since we are all obsessed with having a beautiful and healthy skin. Most of the products available in drug stores contain too many chemicals and can irritate the skin, but with home remedies one can work wonders as well. I’ll definitely give it a try! Thanks for sharing this post
Thanks Ruya! I think nowadays, more and more people are into the natural way of doing things. It`s true, there are a lot of products out there, and you`re not even sure what it is made up of. It is also safer to use natural based ingredients. I`m glad you find this article helpful!
This is a GREAT post! I’m a huge fan of natural remedies, treatments, and medicine. Why use expensive, synthetic, artificial, added chemical concoctions when it’s easier, cheaper, healthier, safer, AND more effective to use things you probably already have at home? I mean, really?
All I can say is the big cooperations and advertising giants sure have done a number on the general public, making everyone think they NEED their products. Makes me sick. That’s why, even in business, I remain an honest and genuine person.
People always use the excuse, business is business. It’s the kill or be killed mentaility. Work your way up by stepping on others. Not for me. I’ve been very successful in business by gaining people’s trust, and earning their respect. That’s where loyal customers come from, and they are the one who will refer others to you as well.
Anyway, love this post. Couldn’t agree more!
Thanks Freya for sharing your thoughts. I understand what you`re saying.. and sometimes, because there are already “big” names out there, small businessess get intimidated. But i think, people are smarter now. They are more into the natural way. People are more aware what`s best for them. It`s true, you will always have good and loyal customers if you have gain their trust by being true and honest to them.
