3 Cheap, Natural, and Do It Yourself Acne Treatments

Posted by on March 5, 2013 at 8:00 PM

3 Cheap, Natural, and Do It Yourself Acne Treatments

Acne is a skin condition that often doesn’t go away in adolescence like we want it to.  It often persists into adulthood, and occurs in women before their period comes because of the hormone fluctuations.  Acne happens when dead skin cells and oil clog up your pores.  The result can be swelling, pus, or redness if germs get into the pores.  Acne can run in families, if your mother or father had severe acne then you are more likely to get it.

Acne treatment and maintenance can be expensive.  For example, prescription benzoyl peroxide creams can really add up – they can cost $40 and up for a small tube.  The maintenance of facial cleansers, toners, and moisturizers in programs to keep acne at bay like Proactive can add up to hundreds of dollars at the end of the year.  That being said, it can be a small price to pay for better self esteem and improved confidence.

If your acne flares are mild (meaning a few spots without scarring, cystic acne, or huge inflammation) you might be able to keep your acne controlled with natural and do it yourself acne treatments.  Here are three cheap, natural, and easy to make acne treatments you can try at home.

Tea Tree Oil

Forget the expensive Body Shop line of tea-tree oil infused acne spot treatments.  Just buy tea tree oil yourself at the local natural drug store or grocery store.  According to Reader’s Digest, a 5% tea tree oil solution used as spot treatment is just as effective as a 5% benzoyl peroxide treatment for acne.  According to the study as written by About.com , the participants who used tea tree oil had less side effects than those that used benzoyl peroxide but it did take longer to work.  Tea tree oil speeds healing and is a natural antiseptic, which keeps the bacteria that causes acne, P. acnes at bay.

It is important not to use undiluted tea tree oil to your skin because this can be really strong stuff and can irritate your skin, cause drying, itching, and even blistering when applied directly.

Do It Yourself Acne Spot Treatment

Make your own acne spot treatment for pennies instead.  All you need are two ingredients that you’ll likely have at home anyway.  This recipe is also from Dr. Orden, a plastic surgeon, for Readers Digest.

Ingredients:

  • Brewer’s yeast
  • Lemon juice
  • Water

Instructions:

  • Make a paste with a little bit of Brewer’s yeast with enough water added to make it a paste-like consistency.
  • Then add a squeeze of lemon juice
  • Spot treat the acne and cover with a dressing to keep it moist

Brewer’s yeast is normally used for baking and for fermenting beer, but it can be used for acne too.  The Brewer’s yeast fights the bacteria and the lemon juice acts to dry out the blemish.

Honey Mask

Honey is pretty amazing.  Not only does it taste delicious but it’s great for your skin too if you are prone to acne.  We use it for sore throats and sore stomachs.  Honey has natural anti-bacterial properties.  It is even used (Manuka honey) for treatment of wounds and difficult to heal ulcers.

According to Wikipedia, honey exerts its antibacterial effects because of its pH (its highly acidic) and its natural osmotic effect.  It draws water away so that bacteria can’t feed on it.

This tip is from one of my favourite girly sites, All Women Stalk:

To make a natural honey mask, basically all you need is natural honey.  Massage it into your skin, let it sit for 15 to 30 minutes and rinse off with warm water.  The honey will moisturize your skin in addition to fighting bacteria while you relax.

If after trying nonprescription medications for three months with no success, talk to your primary care provider about prescription acne treatments.  Some effective treatments like birth control pills (not really natural, I know) or long term antibiotics taken for a few months like tetracycline can easily keep acne from coming back for a long time.

Keep in mind that acne treatment of all sorts takes a long time (think weeks, like 12 weeks) to work, even if it’s amazing.  This is because of the process with the bacteria P. acnes and the skin cell build up that causes acne takes a lot of time to develop.

Bargainmoosers, do you have natural and effective acne treatments that work well for you?

Canadian Freebie: Sample Sachet of Eucerin Hyal-Urea Day & Night Cream

Posted by on March 5, 2013 at 7:00 AM

Canadian Freebie: Sample Sachet of Eucerin Hyal Urea Day & Night Cream

Tired of dry, flaky winter skin? Eucerin wants to help out by giving you a free sample sachet of Hyal-Urea Day & Night Cream!

So what the heck is Hyal-Urea Day & Night Cream? Well, it’s a customized line of products which not only moisturizes dry skin, but also reduces the look of wrinkles and fine lines. Urea is actually your skin’s own natural moisturizer, and combined with Hyaluronic-Acid, works as a filler to plump up your skin.

Along with relieving dry, cracked skin, this product is also hypoallergenic and can be worn under makeup. I’ve always wondered at what age you are supposed to start using anti-wrinkle cream. Should you be pro-active and start in your 20′s? Or wait until you actually have wrinkles, in your 30′s or 40′s? As someone in their 20′s, I never even thought of using wrinkle cream, until now!

This sample is super easy to request. All you have to do is click on the link, enter your contact information and then answer a few short questions. And voila! You’re on your way to great-looking skin.

Posted by on December 7, 2012 at 6:00 AM

Skinn Super Treat Kit $58.25 + Shipping @ The Shopping Channel Today Only (Expired)

If you’re looking for a Christmas gift for someone who likes skincare, check out the showstopper deal from The Shopping Channel today – they’re offering the Skinn Super Treat Kit for only $58.25 plus shipping.

The original price of the Skinn Super Treat Kit was $79.99, so it’s down by $21.74 to $58.25. Sadly, shipping is another $7.97 which bring the grand total to $66.22 if you’re buying this on its own. It might be worth throwing some other things in your cart too, such as this Hot Gear 3 Piece Hood and Sock Set for $33.98.

Back to the Skinn set – it includes 6 items in total, here’s a quick list:

  • Sulfate Free Cleanser (8oz)  -valued at $48.00
  • Olive & Enzyme Cleanser (8oz) – valued at $36.00
  • Enriched Softening Essence (6oz) – valued at $30.00
  • Collagenesis 24 Hour Treatment (4oz) – valued at $49.50
  • Orchid Gel Mattefying Day Treatment Seal (2oz) – valued at $30.00
  • (2) Twin Set Lip Duo – valued at $18.50

They state the retail value is $230.50 – I always take this figure with a pinch of salt, don’t believe everything you read… But even so, it’s still quite a lot of good quality skincare items for around the $60 mark. The lippies sound good – I’d like to try those.

The Shopping Channel is pretty good for gift ideas for ladies, have a browse! And remember, we’re tagging all our gift ideas with Christmas - check out those too.

Pro-Activ: 30 Days for $24.99 & Free Shipping!

Posted by on December 13, 2011 at 7:00 PM

Pro Activ: 30 Days for $24.99 & Free Shipping!

When Avigayil last posted about Pro-activ, the deal was for $24.99 + a $6.99 shipping fee. Right now, they’ve knocked off the shipping costs, so you can order a month’s supply of Pro-Activ for only $24.99!

As well as the 30 day supply for $24.99 deal with free shipping, you also get a few free gifts: a refining mask and a Doctor’s Secrets book.

Pro-activ is a famous acne-treatment system, meant to be used on your entire face every day. A quick blurb:

Since acne is caused by a number of different factors, each of the products in our 3-Step System has a different function. Used together, our products help heal existing blemishes, unclog pores, attack bacteria, soothe skin, and help stop future breakouts. And best of all, Proactiv® Solution feels like luxurious skin care, not acne medication.

Just remember that this is an auto-renewal subscription to Pro-activ, but you can cancel it at any time. Make a note in your diary if you want to cancel it within the 28 days.

Pro-activ has an excellent policy – a 60 day money-back guarantee, in which they will give you a complete refund of the purchase price if you’re not totally satisfied. To me, that means they really believe in their product, and they know that all their customers are going to be satisfied.

I know that when we last posted about Pro-Activ skincare, a few Moosers took advantage of the deal. Can you tell us some thoughts in the comments, as to what you thought of the product?
