Natural Cleansing Face Powder and Blemish Treatment

Leave a comment

Hoory for this discovery. I have been using it for a few weeks now and it seems to be keeping my skin healthy and of course…its way cheaper and lasts way longer and is better for your skin than chemical mixtures from the store!

Simply Tea Tree Oil dabbed onto blemishes with a Q-tip at night and in the morning has maintained a drying out of just those areas for me and not to the rest of my face, as it is anti-bacterial. Also it smells delightful!

Secondly, I made this face powder using some ideas from Crunchy Betty so I just mixed part Green Clay (can be obtained at the health store for about $5-6 and will last a long long time!) and an equal part of cornstarch (also only a few dollars at the health store and keeps best in the fridge). These powders absorb oil and the green clay is purifying and cleansing of your skin.

I mixed in some cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice to give it less of a white translucent appearance and it matches my skin tone now…you can mix more or less as you like. Also, smells great!

So far my skin has never looked better!
