I struggled with acne for years. It’s hard to put into words how much it can impact your self-confidence, but if you’ve ever had any issues with your skin, you know what I’m talking about. I spent a lot of time looking for ways to clear up my acne. Many of the methods I tried would sort of work for awhile… but ultimately the results never lasted. What eventually helped me with my skin was living #LifeFromScratch. As I started eating more real, clean food and using natural, homemade skincare products (like my DIY facial serums and using tea tree oil for acne), my skin became healthier… along with the rest of me!
What was left behind, though? Dark spots and scars from years of acne all over my face!
I decided to deal with them the same way: by using plant-based, nontoxic oils to fade them. If you have dark acne scars or other forms of hyperpigmentation on your skin, you are going to love this DIY skin serum. It totally helped me to feel better about my own skin.
- Combine ingredients in a 1 oz. glass bottle, preferably with a dropper.
- Gently shake or turn the bottle to allow the oils to mix well.
- Use 4-5 drops of the serum on damp, clean skin.
More Tips for Getting an Even Skin Tone
Exfoliate regularly! Better yet, treat yourself to a whole weekly DIY facial. Buffing away dead skin cells allows fresh, new skin to come to the surface. Check out Pronounce’s Softening Skin Scrub in the organic skincare shop!
Drink plenty of water. Dehydration can prevent your skin from regenerating efficiently.
Use sun protection. Sun damage can darken hyperpigmentation – not at all what you want! Pronounce gives you a beautiful DIY Sunscreen recipe and also offers her SkinShade product for sale in her handcrafted organic skincare shop!
