I never struggles with acne until I was an adult, go figure. I have tried many different remedies, some not so great ones in there. Strides pads dry my face out completely, causing rashes and dry spots. I didn’t know this until a few years ago, but adult acne can worsen when the skin is dry. Honey is an amazing moisturizer and face wash (straight up raw honey).
I recently made my own “stridex pads” to use after showering and before bed. I love the results.
What you need:
– an empty baby food jar (or any clean glass jar with a lid)
– cotton balls or rounds
– tea tree oil (melaleuca)
Fill the jar half way with water.
Add two to three drops of the tea tree oil.
Cover and shake well.
Slowly add cotton balls until jar is full.
Use as you would a stridex pad
Remember, adult acne is also affected by what you eat. You may not see immediate results. It took a few weeks for me to notice an improvement.
