Dealing with adult acne usually calls for derma procedures and topical + oral medication, especially in severe cases. But Denise Larsson, a certified micro-nutrient specialist, took a different route: She relied on natural products to clear her skin. Curious to know what she tried? Here's her routine:
- She soaks a cotton pad with a DIY bi-phase toner composed of water and jojoba oil. Jojoba's texture is similar to our own sebum, which makes it effective in lifting oil build-up.

- She then spreads a pure manuka honey mask on her face to lighten her scars. It has natural anti-bacterial properties, which reduces the possibility of pimples getting infected.

- After cleansing her face, Denise dabs a fresh, clean towel to dry excess moisture—this step, my friends, is something that we may forget. Using a separate
bimpois more advisable because who knows where our bath towel has gone (hint: butt area).
- For her final step, she applies tea tree oil on the inflamed spots to soothe and heal them.
