We’re entering the teen years at my house, which means we’re dealing with things like zits for the first time. We’re lucky to have good skin in our family, but even the occasional zit can be cause for teen drama. And drama, it’s something I try to avoid. Time to find a solution.
Since I try to steer clear of harsh chemicals, that meant most commercial products were out. Burt’s Bees sells a blemish stick, and I’ve heard good things about it, but it sells for almost $8, and when I looked at the ingredients, it contained several essential oils that are considered unsafe for kids. As much as I love Burt’s Bees, that gave me pause.
So, I did what I often do: I invented my own solution. And now that I know how easy it is to make a blemish stick, I’m really glad I didn’t pay $8 for one. Here’s what you do.
