Acne vs Skin Serum

Skin Serum is quite good for treating blemishes and breakouts. Even though it is an oil based product the rosehip and other regenerative oils and essential oils aid in healing and reducing scars, flaking skin and scabbing.

When I say 'treating' I don't mean in the same way as Clearasil or tea tree essential oils treat acne. Skin Serum doesn't do all that germ killing, cleansing stuff.  I save that for Facial & Body Wash.

Skin Serum is regenerative, replenishing and rejuvenating. Perfect for healing wounds quickly and that's what you want when you're in the middle of a breakout. Sure other products treat the pimple causing germs and that's fine however then you're left with a nasty red scar, skin flaking and scabbing and looking icky for a while.

Skin Serum heals quickly and allows your skin to be softened so that when you apply makeup it's not being applied to harden scabs and looking a little bit yukky.

Another thing you can do is mix Skin Serum with mineral makeup powder to make a cream concealer.  It works a treat and heals while providing optimal coverage. BONUS!!!

Mix about a .5c piece worth of mineral powder with 3 drops of Skin Serum to make a nice paint effect (see above) and apply concealer to affected area.
  • Store in an air tight container.
  • Only make very small batches, as per above directions.
  • Use within 3 days.
  • Wash container and brush thoroughly after 3 days.
  • Make another batch when needed.
  • Clean your mineral makeup brush regularly.
As you can see from the above pic the coverage is really good which is exactly what you want.
