Our Freshest Homemade Acne Body Scrub Recipe Yet!

Written by

Let’s be real for a moment, shall we.

Acne can affect any part of your body. Back acne, chest acne, facial breakouts and more can be frustrating and painful. Of course there are many awesome products (hello, Exposed Body Acne kit and Zenmed!), but we also love a good DIY remedy.

Since I’m a beauty on a budget, I’m going to forgo the expensive spa treatments and store bought products. Instead, I’m going to make an awesome acne body scrub in my very own home.

I have to admit, I LOVE making body scrubs. There are so many great recipes, like this anti cellulite scrub.

As far as acne goes, the scrub I’m featuring today is nto only a full blown blemish banishing body scrub, but it also doubles as a body wrap. Body wraps are great for preventing body acne, as well as treating current breakouts that may be causing you discomfort.

Ready to give it a whirl?

Then read on my friend!

Best Acne Body Scrub Recipe

Making this acne body scrub (or wrap) is super simple and inexpensive.

Gather up the following ingredients:

– 2 cups of water
– 1/4 cup sea salt
– 1 cup green clay powder
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1/2 tablespoon tea tree oil

Regardless of your skin type, this treatment should be effective and rejuvenating.

Step 1

In a pot, bring your water to a boil and add in your sea salt. Stir until it dissolves.

Step 2

Remove from the heat and then add in your green clay powder, olive oil and tea tree oil.

Step 3

Stir until it becomes a smooth paste.

Step 4

Slather all over your body and massage it in.

If you want to use this as a body wrap, double the recipe, slather it on then cover yourself with plastic wrap. Let it soak in for 15-20 minutes.

Step 5

Rinse off in a nice warm shower (not too hot though) and be sure to moisturize afterwards.

Why We Love this Acne Body Scrub

Salt is an effective toxin remover and exfoliator. It will help slough away dry skin cells that have been purging themselves and clogging your pores.

Anti fungal and antibacterial properties found in tea tree oil will give your skin a clean, fresh feeling as it wipes away bacteria that can cause some breakouts. It can even treat other skin conditions like athlete’s foot.

Green clay powder is the ultimate weapon in cleansing and nourishing your skin. Not only does it draw away oil and dirt while maintaining your natural moisture barrier, but it also refines your pores and improves circulation; both of which prevent future breakouts and even reduce the appearance of cellulite!

It will be even more effective if you really massage it into your skin. Better yet, have your lover massage it in!

Besides having so many wonderful benefits for you, this recipe is simple and cheap to make. Happy Scrubbing!

3 Moves that Target Cellulite

Let me be brutally honest for a moment – cellulite does not discriminate.

You can be young, old, healthy or not so much and still see the telltale signs of cellulite.

Now, while you can experience cellulite at any age, it is more likely that you’ll start seeing even more of it with age. Why? Because as we age our skin and body change a lot. More specifically, as we get older our skin becomes thinner and our connective tissue thickens. This combination makes cellulite a helluva lot more noticeable.

Did we mention that the average woman also loses approximately 5 lbs of muscle and gains 15 lbs of fat each decade? In the not-so-wise words of Juan Pablo (raise your hand if you’re a Bachelor fan!!!) – AY YAY YAY.

With those scary stats you’re going to want to do everything you can to really target your trouble zones and we’re here to help. Here are 3 moves that target cellulite…and you’re going to want to add these to your daily routine! [Keep Reading]

3 Uncommon Cures for Cellulite

Cellulite. Ugh, the bane of every beach goers existence.

Cellulite is one of those things that has been plaguing women for ages. To be honest, it is a common part of life, but with the gossip rags splashing it across their covers and shaming even the fittest of celebrities for having it, it’s no wonder us common folk are pulling our hair out trying to find a solution.

You see, cellulite is formed due to an imbalance between the connective tissue and fat in your body. The problem is, no one knows for certain what the cause is. Some say lack of exercise, poor health, while others say genetics or hormones. Yikes.

With the cause so unclear, it’s hard to target the problem but let’s give it the good ol’ college try with these 3 uncommon cures for cellulite. [Keep Reading]

3 Cellulite tricks

Summer vacation usually means one thing: Beach bum time!

Well, that’s what it means for me. There’s something incredibly soothing about the heat from the sun warming  your body and the way the water laps at the shore. It’s just so relaxing.

The only downfall is that lingering feeling that your winter binging has left you with a few more pockets of cellulite than you’d like to admit.

Cellulite is such a pain in the ass – literally. Some of us fight with it for years and genetics continuously give us the middle finger. Others are lucky to have next to none. [Keep Reading]

Anti Cellulite Massage: Kneading Your Way to Cellulite-Free Skin

Anti cellulite massage techniques

Have you ever been to a true Italian pizzeria and watched the chef prepare their dough?

With a labour of love they knead, push and stretch the dough and continue to do so for at least 10 minutes. The firmer the hand, the better the result.

Oddly enough, the same rings true for massaging away cellulite.

Cellulite forms from fat build ups deep within the layering of our skin. It becomes more noticeable when our connective tissue fibres push down against it causing the blood flow to restrict, engorging the fat cells.

This is what causes that nasty dimpling effect we all loathe.
