Recently I have been on a roll with writing! I just finished a few articles. The first one is an article I wrote on natural ingredients and products for acne. It started out as an answer for a question I got as anb (all natural beauty) portal’s Eco Living and DIY Natural Beauty Formulating Expert. But Sharon (owner of anb portal) liked the article so much she also made it February’s all natural information article! I am tickled pink, because this is the second Eco Living and DIY article I’ve written that she made into the featured all natural info article for the month! Yay! 🙂 Thanks Sharon!
Like all other Eco Living and DIY Natural Beauty Formulating Expert articles I chose to focus on common or easy to find herbs and other natural ingredients. One reason I love natural ingredients is that they are multi-functional. I love that the same ingredient can be used for so many things (for example I have mentioned some of these ingredients in other articles like my age spots article).
There are so many other ingredients that I didn’t list in the article that can be used to help improve the appearance of acne. Every single Earth Alkemie skin care product has at least one ingredient in it that is helpful for blemishes (because of the ‘multi-tasking nature’ of natural ingredients, and since I tend to craft complex formulations for Earth Alkemie; most products are crafted with several different ingredients, and I try to craft for many different skin conditions in mind).
There are some pricier ingredients I didn’t mention that I craft with like some essential oils (such as damask rose essential oil, which is one of the most expensive essential oils available) or exotic carrier oils (like kukui nut oil, which is one of my personal favorite carrier oils). Rose essential oil and kukui nut oil are key ingredients in Eden Luna Elixir, which is a customer favorite. Or some ingredients that aren’t as well known or that are hard to find, like plum kernel oil, which is in Swan Luna Elixir. Plum oil works indirectly by helping with dehydrated skin (and once skin isn’t dehydrated, it won’t pump out excess sebum).
Some Earth Alkemie products that are great for acne (that will be coming back soon, once I reopen) are Bliss Solaris Elixir (which is used all over to help seal in moisture, and made with many ingredients that help balance the skin and that may help improve the look of blemished skin), Tropical Dreams (awesome as a spot treatment, contains coconut oil and essential oils good for blemished skin), African black soap (I carry a few different kinds), and Eden Luna Elixir (great for dehydrated and oily skin alike, this one contains a lot of balancing herbs and helps improve skin clarity). And more!
