Conventional acne treatments like salicylic acid, niacinamide, or benzoyl peroxide have proven to be the most effective acne solutions.  Still, they tend to be costly and have unwanted side effects such as dryness, redness, and irritation.  A less expensive and nontoxic option is to try DIY cider vinegar green tea toner, which works great on acne-prone skin.  You can also try one of our DIY body butter recipes, which works great for your face.  

Link Between Diet and Acne

To some degree, we all know some foods can make acne better or worse.   The most reliable evidence to date suggests a diet with a high intake of refined carbs such as French fries, candy bars, and doughnuts can lead to insulin resistance, and androgenic hormones can make acne worse.

Three studies in the 
American Journal of Clinical Dermatology have reported a link between milk and acne.  One study found teens had a 44 percent higher chance of developing severe acne if they consumed more than two glasses of milk a day.  Thus, this may be because of the naturally occurring hormones in cow's milk and hormone supplements given to cows for increased milk production.  Therefore, there is a link between acne and dairy; there has not been a link with fermented dairy products such as Greek yogurt or kefir, a fermented dairy drink that you should add to your diet.

Part of your daily skin routine is to wash your skin daily, but do it gently.  I recommend you wash it twice daily, in the morning and at night.  Also, be sure to use a gentle natural soap like glycerin soapYou can make your face and body soap; you know what is in it, with no fragrances or harmful chemicals.   Plus, you can make an Apple Cider Vinegar Green Tea Toner, which works great and is easy to make.  

Also, vinegar is a gentle skin exfoliator that removes dead skin cells, makes it hard for bacteria to thrive, and dissolves the oil that clogs your pores.  Furthermore, Green Tea decreases sebum production and helps improve acne.  Moreover, Tea tree oil is an essential oil with many ways of use; it is both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory.  Lavender Essential Oil helps to soothe and calm the skin, which is vital after using Apple Cider Vinegar.  It also helps make the toner smell nice for those bothered by the smell of Apple Cider Vinegar.

 Homemade Face Care - Apple Cider Vinegar Green Tea Toner Recipe

I suggest you do a patch test before applying the toner over all your face.  Furthermore, you can test in a small area on your neck.  Also, if your skin burns, or any irritation wash the area with warm water immediately.

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons organic apple cider vinegar
1/4 Cup brewed green tea
25 Drops of Tea Tree essential oils
15 Drops of Lavender essential oils

Directions

  • Pour 6 ounces of near-boiling water over about 2 tablespoons (three tea bags) of green tea leaves and steep for 20 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags
  • Pour into an 8-ounce  bottle, blend in other ingredients, shake well, cap tightly, and store in the refrigerator.  Use within a week.

How To Use

Always test on a small area of the neck first to make sure you do not have any reaction to the ingredients.  Wash your face with cool water, then pat dry.  Gently apply the toner with a cotton pad.  Once your face is dry, then apply your moisturizer.   Use daily for 14 days for the best results.  Then you can drop down to using it 3 to 4 times a week or as needed.  Many DIY homemade face care, organic, and vegan skin care products are for purchase.   Finally, green beauty products are better for your health and the environment.
