DIY All Natural Face Wash for Acne Prone Skin

by | Jul 10, 2017

This DIY all-natural face wash is simple to make and effective at both fighting and preventing breakouts.

Desperate for an improvement in my skin, I tried countless beauty brands promising to help diminish an ongoing battle with acne. None of them ever worked and the chemicals and toxins only added to the issue.


After more than 20 years of struggling with acne, I decided it was time for a new approach. I started focusing on healing my body from the inside out. I also simplified my skincare regimen by taking it back to the basics.

This simple recipe is what I use to cleanse my face both morning and evening.  It is a gentle cleanser that will effectively remove makeup and dirt, but won’t strip your skin of its natural oils.



Add the ingredients in the order listed and mix gently.

The mixture will separate, so give it a gentle shake before each use.  Discard after a month and make a fresh batch!

Remember that all skin types are different. This combination works great for me, but feel free to alter the oils. You could add 1/4 cup more water and use a foaming soap dispenser.
