Two Homemade Natural Acne Recipes to Fight Off Blemishes

Suffering from acne can be a frustrating and emotionally taxing experience. And no one is immune to it, even glamorized celebrities. Check out the image of Katy Perry above and you’ll see what we’re talking about.

The journey to clearing blemishes and achieving a smooth complexion can be a long a frustrating one. Acne and many other types of skin blemishes are often a manifestation of what is happening inside the body. A diet heavy in processed foods can lead to build of toxins and impurities in the body triggering the onset of acne. Or too much body fat may lead to hormone imbalance that can cause overproduction of hormones which trigger blemishes.

To help the body in clearing impurities and getting a fresh start, we recommend starting your clear skin regimen with our Femininitea Teatox, a cleansing and purifying tea formulated to help the body in removing waste and build. Combine with Femininitea Clear Skin to promote a healthy complexion.

If you’re looking for natural acne recipes that really work keep on reading. In this article, we share two skin care homemade recipes that are effective, natural, and easy to make.

These natural acne recipes are loaded with ingredients such as tea tree oil, witch hazel and baking soda which have been praised for their abilities to successfully keep blemishes under control with consistent use overtime.

Remember, as with any good skin care regimen, it is extremely important to be patient, consistent and optimistic. Enjoy these natural acne recipes!

Natural Acne Recipes

1) Acne Clearing Scrub

Ingredients You Will Need:

    • Baking Soda – controls oily skin and balances skin’s pH level
    • Aloe Vera Juice or Gel – anti inflammatory, skin hydrator
    • Tea Tree Oil – anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti irritant


Step 1 – Pour your desired amount of baking soda into a clean, small container or bottle of choice. The amount you pour depends on whether you want to get multiple uses out of it, or just want a one-time use.

Step 2 – Add the aloe vera juice to the baking soda, a few drops at a time, until you have created a creamy, liquid-like paste.

Step 3 – Finally, add about 20-30 drops tea tree oil to the paste. Then mix well. If using a bottle, shake well to mix.

What this natural acne remedy will do:

    • Removes pore-clogging dead skin cells
    • Kills acne-causing bacteria
    • Calms irritation associated with acne

How to use:

Simply wet face, then massage all over skin in circular motions, (concentrating on problem areas) for about 60 seconds. Rinse to remove. Pat dry. Use 2 to 3 times weekly. Can also be used once daily on non-sensitive skin types if desired.

2) Acne Clearing Serum

Ingredients You Will Need:

    • Aloe Vera Juice or Gel – anti inflammatory, skin hydrator
    • Witch Hazel – an astringent herb that helps heal blemishes and reduce oiliness
    • Tea Tree Oil – anti bacterial, anti fungal, anti irritant


Step 1 – Fill a clean 8 oz. bottle with aloe vera about halfway.

Step 2 – Fill the remainder of the bottle with the witch hazel, leaving about an inch of room at the top of bottle. This allows for you to thoroughly shake to mix.

Step 3 – Add 20-30 drops of tea tree oil to liquid, then shake all ingredients together until well mixed.

What this natural acne remedy will do:

    • Kills acne-causing bacteria
    • Calms irritation
    • Reduces oiliness
    • Hydrates skin
    • Balances skin’s pH level

How to use:

Apply approximately a dime sized amount completely to affected areas and massage until absorbed. You can also use a cotton ball or pad to apply to skin until absorbed into skin. Use twice daily after cleansing for best results.


If you decide you want to make a enough of these natural acne recipes for repeated use, be sure to store in a bottle tightly sealed with a dispensing cap. Also store in the fridge after each use to increase shelf life.

Remember, the tea tree oil in this formula will also help extend the shelf life of these products. Although these are very easy and inexpensive products to make, I do suggest you make enough, so you don’t have to keep making it every time you plan to use it.

Friendly note:

If you’re not sure where to get these few ingredients, not to worry. Every last ingredient here should be available at your local drug store, health food store, grocery store or even online and they’re very inexpensive.

I was facing the worst breakout i've ever had from a new birth control ...

I have extremely dry skin, especially in the winter, and to top it off i was facing the worst breakout i've ever had from a new birth control prescription. Even a couple months after stopping the pills, I was battling my skin. I switched my skincare routine, which helped a good amount with the dryness, but I still had pimples popping up. After using the Asana pills for a WEEK my skin was SO much more clear. I've incorporated flaxseed into my diet to combat male hormones left over from the BC, but these really do work wonders. (At least for my skin type). Definitely recommend at least trying!
