How to Have Clear Skin Naturally – Flawless Skin With Homemade Facial Spray

In Blog, Recipes by Hong60 Comments

Have you ever went online and googled on how to have clear skin naturally?  Then you followed their tips and even made your homemade product, but didn’t do much for you. I have done that countless times.

Do you wish that you had absolutely beautiful, clear, and glowing skin? Of course, we all do. Find me one woman who does not want flawless skin.

Having beautiful, clear, and glowing skin are not only one of the main elements of overall beauty and good health, but also important for your emotional and mental well-being.

Clear and glowing skin means spending less time on makeup every day and using a minimal number of skin care products. Makeup is only a temporary solution that covers up skin problems, it can sometimes further aggravate the problem if you use cheap and bad quality makeup.

There are thousands of skin and beauty care products that promise to give you clear and glowing skin. Unfortunately, many of these products are loaded with ingredients that can actually cause further irritation and lead to more skin problems, especially if you have a sensitive skin.

How to Have Clear Skin Naturally - Flawless Skin With Homemade Facial Spray

If you’ve ever suffered from a skin condition, such as acne, you know all too well that it is a really difficult condition to fix. You’ve probably tried it all, from prescription oral medications and topical treatment to drugstore acne products, such as Proactive, benzoyl peroxide, and pink grapefruit facial cleanser, to name a few.

In the beginning, everything seems to work well, you notice an improvement in your skin, and then suddenly it’s no longer working for you. And sometimes the harsh chemicals in the products even cause further irritation that left your face red, dry and sensitive. It seems like trying to get your skin to cooperate with you almost always feels like a series of never-ending battles.

Maybe you are at a point of frustration and no longer trust any products, and ultimately just accept the situation.

For many of us getting that clear glowing skin is a dream, but it doesn’t have to be. What if I told you that clear glowing skin can become a reality with something that is safe and highly effective without burning a hole in your pocket? Would you be interested? If yes, then this article is for you.

In this article, I am going to share with you the following:

  • What is acne
  • The causes of acne
  • Foods that trigger acne
  • Foods that reduce acne
  • Why inflammation is both our friend and foe
  • How organic sulfur can benefit skin problems

And I will also show you how to have clear skin naturally with my simple and easy homemade facial spray. It’s highly effective and economical. I personally use it every day to help with my occasional acne breakout and to keep my skin clear, soft and glowing. 

Keep in mind that everyone has a different skin type. So what works for one person may not work for others. I am here to simply share with you what has worked for me.


What is Acne?

As we leave our teenage years, we also hope to leave the awkwardness of acne behind too. Unfortunately, acne is no longer a teen problem, in fact, it can persist into your adulthood. Acne is now affecting millions of adult women, who never had a problem with it before.

Acne is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition where the hair follicles on your skin get clogged with excess oil secretion and dead cells result in whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, cysts, and nodules. It is not dangerous but can leave skin scars.


Causes of Acne

The main causes of acne include clogged pores, bacteria, excess skin oil production and dead skin cells.

sugar cubes

Research also indicates hormones, diet, greasy makeup, stress and certain medications, such as corticosteroids, androgens, birth control pills, and lithium can trigger or aggravate an existing case of acne.


Acne Trigger Foods

Avoid Cow’s Milk:

Studies have found that cow’s milk increased both the number of people who got acne and its severity.

You are probably thinking aren’t milk and other dairy products be good for you, they provide all the essential vitamins and nutrients that our bodies need. Unfortunately, the truth is that they actually do more harm than good to your body in general.

  • Milk is abundant in a hormone called insulin-like growth factor 1 or IGF-1, which is very beneficial for baby cows, but not so beneficial for humans. In fact, consuming milk tends to make your acne grow big instead.
  • Most of the commercial milk comes from pregnant cows, the hormones in milk can react with hormones in your body and trigger the production of skin oils (sebum), the oily substance that can clog your pores and aggravate acne.
  • When you consume milk, it leads to a rapid rise in blood sugar and insulin secretion from the pancreas. The rapid increase in insulin can have negative health effects, such as promoting inflammation in the body, making your skin even worse.

There are many non-dairy alternatives such as almond milk, soy milk, cashew milk, hemp milk, coconut milk, and rice milk. Here is an article that provides you 9 of the best alternatives to cow’s milk. You can check it out and decide which non-dairy alternative is best for you.

Avoid Sugar

Other research found that people who had higher sugar intake and a high glycemic diet had significantly more acne.

Sugar is not only bad for your waistline and teeth, but also bad for your skin. When you consume sugar or high-glycemic foods, your body breaks down these carbohydrates into sugar (glucose), which causes an insulin spike and leads to inflammation in your body.

Insulin spikes can increase the production of skin oils and contribute to the clogging of follicles, which can worsen skin problems.

lollipop

This is not so much of a problem if you have a piece of cake or soda once in a while, but if you eat sugary foods frequently then it would become a problem.

The sugar from the foods you eat may attach to proteins and fats in your system, through the process of glycation, harmful molecules called advanced glycation end products, or AGEs can be produced.

AGEs can cause proteins such as collagen and elastin, the ones that keep your complexion youthful, to break down and to lose elasticity. Glycation not only contributes to aged, sagging and wrinkled skin but also can aggravate particular skin conditions such as acne and rosacea.

Glycation is a normal process for the human body and it’s going to happen eventually. But negative lifestyle choices can definitely accelerate the process.

Simple carbohydrates are your skin’s worst enemy.

  • Avoid foods high in sugar and saturated fats such as white bread, candy, sodas, fried foods, ice cream, cookies, fruit juice, pasta, pizza, energy drinks, and cakes. These foods can cause your body’s insulin levels to skyrocket that could further exacerbate inflammation.

Complex carbohydrates are your skin’s best friend.

  • Many complex carbohydrates foods contain fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and they don’t cause rapid insulin spike like simple carbohydrates because they take much longer to digest, which causes a more gradual and lower rise in blood sugar and thus helps to prevent rapid spikes in insulin production.
  • Foods such as brown rice, whole grains, nuts, fruits, and vegetables are broken down into sugar at a slower rate and therefore won’t cause a rapid release of insulin in the body.

vegetables and fruits


Acne Reducing Foods

I have put together a list of foods that help to prevent acne breakouts and are also great other skin conditions.

Probiotic-Rich Foods

  • Kefir, yogurt and cultured vegetables (sauerkraut and kimchi) are foods that can help crowd out yeast and bad bacteria, which can help to reduce inflammation in the gut, and therefore reduce acne.

Vitamin A

  • Spinach, carrots and beef liver are high in vitamin A which help to support healthy and beautiful skin.

Fiber

  • Fiber-rich foods such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, and seeds can help to support cleansing the colon and increase the growth of good bacteria in the gut, therefore help to eliminate acne.

Proteins 

  • Clean lean protein such as organic chicken, grass-fed beef, free-range eggs, and wild-caught fish will help to balance blood sugar and prevent a rapid insulin spike.

Omega 3

  • The typical Western diet contains too many omega-6 fatty acids, which are tied to inflammation. Make sure you eat more omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fatty fish, walnuts, and flaxseed, which can help decrease inflammation and prevent acne breakouts.

Green Tea

  • Drink more green tea throughout the day. Green tea is filled with antioxidants that fight free radicals which help to reduce acne breakouts. Drinking green tea can make your skin produce less sebum and reduce your inflammation levels while simultaneously boost your immune system

Zinc Rich Foods

  • Zinc-rich foods such as sprouted pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, watermelon seeds, squash seeds, and oysters are high in zinc which may reduce acne breakout.

There is an old saying that you are what you eat is definitely true, so if you want to keep your skin healthy and free of acne, a healthy diet is important.


Inflammation: Both Friend and Foe

Inflammation has been found to be associated with just about every health condition. There are two types of inflammation, one is acute inflammation, and the other one is chronic inflammation.

An acute inflammatory response comes on quickly and generally disappears in a few days once its job is done; it isn’t a problem, so there’s nothing to worry about. In fact, we need the acute inflammatory response to survive.

Chronic inflammation means that there is an over-reactive immune response or an underlying problem that your body is working hard to fight off. As a result, it constantly releases damaging chemicals that could sicken your cells. Chronic inflammation can last for months or years as a result of failure to eliminate the cause.

Inflammation isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, it is a vital part of the body’s immune response that helps to protect the body against damaged cells, viruses, bacteria, which is actually a good thing.

But sometimes inflammation can be problematic though, over time, you can end up with too much of a good thing. With chronic inflammation, your body is on high alert all the time, which can lead to many health problems such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, skin conditions, and much more.

I always say skin is the reflection of our internal and overall health. The chronic internal inflammation can take a toll on the skin in a variety of ways, including acne, rosacea, dermatitis, itchy rash, psoriasis, and other skin problems.

If you cut down on foods that trigger acne and increase your intake of acne reducing foods, it will help decrease inflammation in the body and therefore you will end up with a more beautiful and clearer skin.


How Does Organic Sulfur Help With Acne-Prone Skin?

Organic sulfur (MSM) is not a drug or medicine; it’s actually a nutrient or food that our bodies need in order to function properly. It’s a nutrient that many of us already probably consuming in many foods, such as broccoli, cabbage, onion, garlic, and avocado.

Organic sulfur is well-known for its ability to help relax the joint tissue and restore flexibility. It is these healing and repairing abilities that make organic sulfur an optimal choice to help you recover from a wide array of health ailments.

In terms of skin benefits. Sulfur is known as nature’s beauty mineral. It helps to boost collagen level, which is important for the skin. 

Sulfur has anti-inflammatory properties, the ability to enhance the permeability of cell membranes to let nutrients in and toxins to move out, and the powerful ability to penetrate deeply into the layers of the skin.

organic sulfur crystals

All of these benefits make sulfur one of the best and effective natural remedies for skin conditions such as eczema, rosacea, acne, and psoriasis, all of which have inflammation at the core.

One research shows that organic sulfur can help improve skin tone, reduce redness, ease sensitivity, reduce discolorations, and treat other symptoms associated with rosacea. It is also used for a host of other skin ailments including dermatitis, dandruff, scabies, burns, diaper rash, age spots, and certain fungal infections.

Organic sulfur is normally taken orally. However, it can be highly effective when applied directly onto the skin. By applying sulfur directly on the skin, it makes skin cells more permeable, more absorbent, and more receptive to any other ingredients you use with it.

When sulfur is used topically, it has both comedolytic and keratolytic effects.

  • Comedolytic means sulfur has the ability to absorb excess oil in the acne-prone skin as acne is caused by the excess production of oil in the sebaceous gland.
  • Keratolytic means that sulfur has the ability to cause the top layer of the epidermis to dry and peel off, which helps to slough away dead skin cells and reduce the chances of clogged pores, allowing a fresh new layer of smooth skin to grow in its place.

Sulfur also has antibacterial properties, so it can help disinfect skin and prevent the spread of bacteria. However, sulfur may not be suitable for all skin types.

It works well for those with oily skin types, as it absorbs excess oil from the skin that can clog pores. 

In contrast, sulfur may not be ideal for those with a combination of a dry and oily skin or dry skin types, as the excess drying effect can result in painful irritation and flaking skin.


How to Have Clear Skin Naturally – Flawless Skin With Homemade Facial Spray

I had been experimenting with different ingredients to make a product that would help with my occasional breakout in the past few months. I finally came up with something that has been working great for me and I would like to share with all of you. Hopefully, it will help you and the people you know that are suffering from acne and other skin conditions.

My all-time favorite recipe that I use to help with my occasional acne breakout and to keep my skin soft and glowing is my homemade facial spray that consists of 6 ingredients: purified water, organic sulfur, fresh aloe vera gel, colloidal silver, liquid germall plus, and vitamin E oil.

This homemade facial spray recipe is not only effective in treating acne, but also acne marks, rosacea, psoriasis, dermatitis, eczema, itchy rash, and other skin conditions.

It needs to be noted that anything you put on our skin will get absorbed into your bloodstream, so it is very critical that you buy high-quality ingredients for this spray or for any homemade body care products.

How to Have Clear Skin Naturally - Flawless Skin With Homemade Facial Spray

Gold Standard Organic Sulfur, Aloe Vera Plant, Colloidal Silver, Spring Water, 2 oz Amber Glass Spray Bottle, a Medium or a Mini Funnel, a Plastic Teaspoon, Vitamin E Oil.

Things you need:

1. Purified Water:

  • It is important that you use purified or bottled spring water because chlorine and fluoride in the tap water will decrease the effectiveness of sulfur.
  • If you don’t have access to purified or bottled water, you can leave a glass of tap water cover with a cloth to keep it free of dust sit in room temperature for 12 – 24 hours for chlorine to evaporate.
  • If you don’t want to wait for 12-24 hours, you can also boil tap water for 15-20 minutes to get rid of chlorine in the water.

2. Organic Sulfur:

  • Make sure you buy pure organic sulfur in the form of large crystals.
  • Pills and powered forms of organic sulfur usually have fillers, anti-caking additives, and binders added to them which may not be as effective as pure organic sulfur in the form of crystals.

3. Colloidal Silver:

  • Colloidal silver is a suspension of submicroscopic metallic silver particles in a colloidal base, which has been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of health challenges.
  • Colloidal silver is a wonderful natural antibiotic used to prevent infections. When used topically, it can help relieve pain and discomfort caused by inflammation and swelling. 
  • Colloidal silver has the ability to stimulate cell regeneration, promote healing and gently fight bacterial, viral and fungal conditions without side effects, which makes it a powerful remedy for skin conditions.

4. Aloe Vera Gel:

  • Aloe Vera Gel contains two hormones: Auxin and Gibberellins. These two hormones provide wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties.
  • Aloe Vera has antibacterial and antiseptic properties that protect the skin from bacteria and other pathogens which lead to infection and inflammation.
  • Aloe Vera helps to reduce pore size, which helps to keep out excess sebum, dirt, and microbes. It is also used to effectively heal chronic skin problems, such as psoriasis, acne, and eczema.

5. Liquid Germall Plus

6. Vitamin E Oil:

  • Antioxidants are not considered actual preservatives, but they do help to reduce the rate of oxidation.
  • Oxidation is a chemical process that occurs when oils or other natural ingredients are exposed to oxygen. In other words, your homemade products will lose effectiveness and start to go bad when exposed to light and air, and vitamin E oil will slow down that process.

7. Amber Glass Sprayer Bottle (2 oz):

  • Amber color glass gives better protection by filtering out the blue and ultraviolet light. The problem with the blue bottle is that they allow the blue light in, which is not good for essential oils and skin care products. When you protect the ingredients from the harmful rays, you are also extending the shelf life of homemade products.
  • The reason I use amber glass spray bottle is because glass is non-porous and will hold up to pretty much any ingredient. So you don’t have to worry about the harmful chemicals from the plastic leaching into your products.
  • I personally use 18 Amber Glass Bottles Pack to store most of my homemade products. The pack consists of 6 amber glass eye dropper bottles (1 oz), 6 amber glass sprayer bottles (2 oz), 6 stainless roller balls bottles (0.34 oz), 1 opener, 36 bottle cap stickers, and 10 mini funnels. All of these for only $14.95 as of this writing. If you make a lot of homemade products like me, I highly recommend that you pick up yours from Amazon.

9. Funnel


Let’s Make The Homemade Facial Spray

First, you need to gather all the necessary supplies to make this facial spray. Make sure you use a clean spray bottle or eye dropper to store your product. If you are ordering a new spray bottle or eye dropper, it’s still a good idea that you clean them up before use.

Just because you order them new or that no one has used them before, it doesn’t mean that they’re perfectly clean. If you don’t clean them well, these bottles will have bacteria in them which will shorten the shelf-life of the products.

Clean hands and tools are important to ensure that no bacteria will end up in your products. Be sure to wash your hands properly and clean your work surface, teaspoon, funnel and anything else you’re going to use.

I normally make a small batch (about 2 oz) that lasts me for about 2 weeks, you can either halved or double the recipe accordingly. Keep in mind when oil and water are mixed, they will have a much shorter shelf-life than oil and butter-based products, such as lip balm. Because water breeds life. So it would be a good idea that you only make a small batch at a time, keep it in the refrigerator and use it while it is still fresh.

  • If the spray bottle has a hard time dispensing the solution, you can use eyedropper bottle instead. Make sure you be careful not to touch the tip of the eye dropper as this can transfer bacteria to the product.
  • If you use a spray bottle to store your product. Don’t be alarmed if there is dry white powder attach to the spray nozzle. It’s just dried organic sulfur crystals.

1. Start by adding 2 teaspoons of Spring Water through the funnel into the amber glass spray bottle.

2. Add 1 teaspoon of Organic Sulfur Crystals to the same amber glass spray bottle.

3. Add 2 teaspoons of freshly extracted Aloe Vera Gel or Amara Organics Aloe Vera Gel through the funnel into the amber glass spray bottle.

4. Now add 2 teaspoons of Colloidal Silver to the spray bottle.

5. Add 2-3 drops of Vitamin E Oil or Rosemary Antioxidant Extract.

6. Use 0.1 – 0.5% of the liquid Germall Plus of the total weight of the product. Click here for more information. 

7. Put the spray bottle cap on and shake the solution well for 1-2 minutes or until organic sulfur is completely dissolved. Now you just made your own homemade facial spray. You can either label it or leave it blank, it’s up to you.

If organic sulfur crystals are too big to go through the opening of the funnel, you can either grind it into a fine powder using a coffee grinder or pestle mortar.

You can also mix all the ingredients in a separate bowl or container and stir until organic sulfur is fully dissolved and then transfer the product to the spray bottle. You don’t have to follow exactly how I do it, feel free to do whatever is most convenient for you.


How To Use The Facial Spray?

Make sure you clean your face really well before using the spray. Use it in the morning and at night.

Always store the product in dark, cool places as the product will oxidize and lose its effectiveness when exposed to light and air. Store for up to two weeks at room temperature.


Conclusion 

I hope you find this article helpful.

If you follow the recommended eating tips along with the regular and long-term use of this homemade facial spray, you are sure to see results.

  4. I remember back in my teenage years I had really poor skin. I had pimples all over my face and it really wasn’t fun.

    One thing I stopped doing was using lots of different products which were actually pretty harmful. For instance, benzoyl peroxide really hurt much more than it helped. It dried my skin out a lot and caused even more pimples.

    However, I do have a question for you. Is there any good way to get rid of my acne on my back. I’m 33 now, but it seems like in the winter my back seems to break out more. Not sure why, but every winter it seems to break out more and more. Very frustrating!

    1. Author

      Hello Garen,

      Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. I can totally relate to your teenage experience with acne breakout. I remember those days and it was definitely not fun to have pimples and acne on the face.

      I also used many store bought products that actually did more harm to my skin than good. I stopped using them altogether and started making my own facial spray to fight acne and other skin issues and it has been helping a lot.

      I’ve been researching and experimenting on a lotion for few weeks now. It has helped with my itchy skin, which I get every winter. My friend also has been complaining about itchy skin on her face, and she has tried pretty much everything with no relief, and actually caused further irritation and itchiness. I gave the lotion to her and the moment she put it on, the relief was almost instant.

      I am in the process of perfecting the recipe before I write an article about it. I will have the article up sometime in the next few weeks. So be sure to check it out. I think it will help your breakouts on the back.

      All the best,
      Hong

  7. I struggle with adult acne and my skin is always extremely dry and reactive to just about everything I put on it. I find myself just misting with purified water instead of moisturizers, so I will try this. Do you have a link to purchase these ingredients directly from your site and which brand of aloe do you prefer? Thank you!

    1. Author

      Hi Melody,

      I can totally relate to your situation, your situation sounded just like how I was before. I used some many acne products that sounded very promising, but always left my skin dry, red, and sensitive.

      I now focus more on natural healing and natural ingredients. I believe Mother Nature has everything we need to care for our problems.
      I will also be writing an article about this homemade face cream that I use as a moisturizer. It also contains 100% natural ingredients. I’ve been experimenting for months now. I think I have the right ratio and the right ingredients. So be sure to check out my site regularly for new contents.

      Here are the links to buy the ingredients for the homemade facial spray:

      1. The only thing you can purchase directly from my site is Gold Standard Organic Sulfur. Other ingredients you also need are listed below or click here to visit our store.

      2. Colloidal silver

      3. I personally prefer to extract fresh Aloe Vera Gel from a plant, I think it is the best since it will be free of chemicals and preservatives. But if you are going to buy the gel, make sure you buy as close to pure aloe vera gel as you can. The product I recommend is Amara Organics Aloe Vera Gel.

      4. Vitamin E oil or Rosemary Antioxidant Extract

      If you need help or have questions on anything, please don’t hesitate to contact me by leaving me a comment of email me at hong@organicsulfurforhealth.com. I hope you have fun making this product and hopefully it works for you.

      Best of luck to you,

  8. I love this post on how to clear skin naturally. I have tried many different home remedies for my son, but nothing seems to work for him. Also, getting him to cut down on sugar and milk is very hard to do! So whatever we can do to help is worth it. I actually have most of the items for this. I love the step by step instructions! This will be a piece of cake. I hope it works, but it is definitely worth a try!

      I personally have tried many different acne products, and they have left my skin red, sensitive, and irritated. I decided to take a natural approach, through many experiments with different ingredients and ratios, I finally have the right ingredients and the correct ratio that has helped me and hopefully it can also help other acne suffers. I hope you make it and works for him. Please let me know if this product has benefited him. Thank you so much.

      Best regards,

      Hello Melani,
      Thank you for stopping by. And thank you for sharing this article with your daughter and hopefully this remedy can help her with her acne.

  12. Hi Hong,
    Interesting article. I wish I knew about sulphur to prevent acne years ago. I don’t have much of an acne problem now. Does sulphur help with wrinkles? I’m going to try the homemade facial spray.

    1. Author

      Hello Franca,
      I am glad that you found this article intersting. Sulfur is a wonderful mineral for skin problems either by consuming it internally or using it topically.

      Sulfur is known as nature’s beauty mineral. It helps to boost collagen level, which is important for the skin. As we age, sulfur is depleted, leaving skin vulnerable to free radical damage and further breakdown of collagen, which leads to wrinkles and sagging. With the regular and long-term use of this homemade facial spray and healthy diet. I am sure you are going to see result. Let me know when you decide to try it out.

      Good luck,
      Hong

  13. I wasn’t surprised to see sugar and fried foods on your list but milk did surprise me. Once I read how it made sense. Thank you for offering substitutes for milk as well. Your recipe is easy to follow and I love the detail. Thanks for the information and making it easy to understand.

      Hey James,
      Thanks for commenting. You are very welcome. I am glad that you found the information easy to understand. I never knew milk was bad either until I did more research. I was surprised as well. The non-dairy alternatives are pretty good too. In fact, I have tried several of them and like the coconut milk the best.

  14. I actually purchased organic sulfur, following your advice. Agreed, it’s very bitter taste and quite difficult to dissolve. I use a hot water and drink a lot of water after. It is bearable :). I ‘ve been taking it for a week, and I have to admit that I have noticed positive changes in my energy. Also, my sleep pattern has been improved. I will continue to monitor and will report the results.

      Hey Olina,

      I am very happy that you decided to try this product. The bitter taste is going to take some time to get used to. You can also mix it with lemon, tea, or coffee to mask the taste.

      I have a video and an article that offer detail explanation on who can take this product, the acclimatization Process, common complaints, ways of taking organic sulfur, why hydration is important, things to avoid to maximum the effectiveness of organic sulfur, and I also demonstrated on how I normally take my organic sulfur. I think you will find them helpful.

      I am glad that you are noticing positive changes in your energy and better sleep pattern. I am interested to know what other benefits you are going to experience in the future. Thank you for letting me know the changes you are experiencing so far, I really appreciate that 🙂

  15. Thank you for enlightening many for an alternative to what I think are useless over the counter products. This source of information will give my grandchildren something else to try.

      Hello Maurice,
      Thank you for checking out my article. You are welcome for the information. Please let me know when your grandchildren decide to try this recipe out, I am very curious about the result:)

  16. I love reading different health topics. Yours actually caught my attention because my wife, like most women love their skin care products. From washes, night creams, day cream, sun screen and all the others my wife has tried and still uses several. Me personally had no idea about the foods affecting the skin. Then again they do say you are what you eat. I really enjoyed your post and will pass on the the article to my wife. She may like the skin spray.
    Thanks

      Hello Mike

      Thanks for stopping by. I used to love skin care products and have tried so many just like your wife. But I started becoming sensitive to most of them.

      Then I started searching for more of natural alternatives, experimented with several ingredients, and finally came up with this homemade product which has worked great for me.

      Our skin is like the mirror of our internal health. What we eat is going to reflect on our skin.

      I am glad you enjoyed this article. Let me know when your wife gives it a try and also how she likes it.

  17. What an in-depth and truly informative article – what did your fingers feel like after typing all that up.

    The human body is truly a wonderful and mysterious machine. As you mentioned, your skin will clear for a while from products and then the acne would be back. it is the same with allergens as well as weight loss and weight gain.

    I think you have gotten the formula for clear skin down. All the ingredients have significant scientific backing for their results in dermatology. I am definitely giving your tincture a try.
    Thanks for the clear information.

      Hey Marius,

      Thank you for checking out my article, and I am glad that you found my article informative. My fingers hurt a little bit, just kidding. Actually, I typed up this article over the course of a week, so it is not too bad.

      Yes, human body is so amazing, given the right nutrition; it has the ability to heal on its own. Most acne products just cover up the symptoms without getting down to the underlying cause of the issue.

      Skin is truly the reflection of our internal health. Inflammation has been found to be associated with just about every health condition, including skin conditions. Once we decrease the inflammation in our body by decreasing acne trigger foods and increasing intake of acne reducing foods and use this spray, you are sure to see result.

      I have done quite a bit of research on the ingredients and I have also been experimenting with different ingredients for a while now, some of them worked ok, some not so good, but this one is by far the most effective remedy I came up for acne and other skin problems. Let me know when you decide to make your own spray and please let me know the result.

      Good luck to you,
      Hong

  18. I remember using sulphur topically as a teenager, but I don’t see it again these days. I never heard about organic sulphur though. I must say that using sulpur was very effective for me. It cleared up any skin discoloration leaving my skin perfectly flawless. As soon as a spot appeared on my skin, I would rub that sulphur ointment on it. My skin tone improved after repeated use. Can organic sulphur be used on the scalp for dandruff?

      Hello Carol,

      Sulfur is a great solution for skin problems. There are actually two forms of sulfur that exists in nature, which are elemental yellow sulfur and organic sulfur.

      Elemental Yellow sulfur is produced by volcanic activity in the atmosphere. In nature it occurs as a pure element in the form of a yellow crystalline solid or as sulfide and sulfate minerals. Elemental sulfur is used for treating skin problems such as dandruff, psoriasis, etc. This form of sulfur is used topically. It is not bio available, meaning it can not be taken internally.

      On the other hand, organic sulfur is also known as methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which is produced by the volcanic activity in sea water. This organic sulfur compound is found in all living plants and animal tissues. Organic sulfur is normally taken internally, but it can also be used topically, which can be highly effective. This form of sulfur is bioavailable, meaning that it can be absorbed and utilized in the body for healing and repairing.

      Organic sulfur can help with dandruff on the scalp if taken internally. You can check out organic sulfur benefits for more information. You can also check out gold standard organic sulfur review to learn more about the product.

      Organic sulfur can also be applied to the scalp for dandruff. Here is an article that provides DIY recipes for hair and scalp problems.

      I hope I answered your questions, let me know if you have any other questions.

  19. This is great information! My son has horrible acne and it is because he has to take testosterone injections. This has just made his face horrible and something that he will have to deal with for a very long time. Funny, I just ordered a bunch of products on Amazon that “claim”, according to the reviews to help severe acne. We have tried it all. He also goes to a dermatologist and those products don’t help. Nothing has helped. So, I am going to bookmark this page, and pick up the necessary ingredients. The information was MOST helpful. Thank you so much!

      Hello there,

      I appreciate that you took the time to check out my article.

      I heard you, I used to do the same thing, read reviews on amazon that claim to be good products, and paid so much for them.

      Later I found out some of these reviews were actually not legit. In fact, some companies would reward you free product if you leave them a good review, and that is how I found out that I’ve been deceived.

      Like your son, I have tried pretty much every acne products out in the market and none of them has helped me. I have also used prescription oral and topical meds, no help either. They actually caused more skin irritation than help.

      I am so thankful that organic sulfur came to my life and with the combination of taking organic sulfur internally and using my homemade facial spray regularly, my skin has cleared up so much. Now I use the spray mostly to get that glow on my face. You can check out my personal testimony.

      I have written couple of articles that talk about gold standard organic sulfur review and sulfur FAQ, you can check them out and decide if this product is suitable for you.

      Let me know when you decide to try this product. And if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
      Best of luck to you and your son!

  20. Hey Hong, this is really a good home made product for acne. You clearly explained everything about acne, Some points made me shock that milk causes acne.

  21. Wow, thank you for the information. I have been breaking out a lot late, but I have also increased my intake of sugar. So I guess it makes sense. I never really thought to change my diet to get clearer skin, but reading this makes me rethink what I eat!

  22. Wow!! Thank you for all these wonderful tips. I had no idea that organic sulfur can resolve acne issues… today with this huge supplements industry, it’s not easy to find a good natural relief that works.

    Thanks again for sharing. Great reading

      Hello there,

      You are very welcome. I am glad you enjoyed it. Organic sulfur has many amazing skin benefits. I used to suffer from severe acne breakouts and rosacea, and taking organic sulfur internally has clear up my skin quite a bit. In the past few months, I have been experimenting with different ingredients to make a facial spray. And this recipe is by far the most effective for me. It has helped me with my occasional acne breakout and keeps my skin clear and glowing.

      You are right that finding good natural remedy is challenging in today’s world. I have tried many things in my life and I love to share with people what has worked for me. Hopefully, this will also help others.

  23. Interesting. I’ve never heard that milk can make acne worse. I have a teen daughter who is going through the typical stage of life when we get hit with the acne bug and it seems that most products out there only sort of help. Thanks for this post. Now we have something new to try out!

      hey Steve,
      Yes, milk can cause and worsen acne due to the fact that most of the commercial milk comes from pregnant cows, and the hormones in milk can react with hormones in your body and trigger the production of skin oils, which can clog your pores. Let me know how well this homemade product works out for your daughter. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day!

  24. Hong, let me start by saying thank you for this wonderful homemade product. I can’t imagine how much research you have done in order to bring this to us. I have a friend who has been suffered from acne problem. I will inform him about this. Thanks.

  26. Hi Hong, what a nice informative article about how to have clear skin naturally. You are right who doesn’t? I just bookmark your page as I am definitely coming back to try your homemade facial spray!

      Hello Carole,

      I am glad you found the article informative. When you decide to give it a try, let me know how it works for me. If you have any question or concern, feel free to contact me.

  27. Thanks so much for sharing this information, how long does it typically take to see a noticeable improvement? Cheers, Karen

    1. Author

      Hey Karen,
      You are welcome. Since everyone’s acne severity, skin type, health conditions, and diet are different. Results may be different for everyone.
      Some might notice result within few weeks of using it, some might take much longer. It took me about 5 weeks to notice the change on my face.
      Along with using the homemade spray, I was also taking organic sulfur internally, I reduced sugary foods and increased intake of complex carbohydrates in my diet. I believe it’s the combination of these things that helped me achieve my result fast.
      I truly believe that our skin is the mirror of our internal health and overall health, just by applying stuff on the face without a healthy diet would be hard to achieve healthy, glowing skin.

      I hope I answered yor question. Let me know if you have any other question.

      Good luck to you,
      Hong

  28. Great article on what to do to have clear skin naturally. I think every woman would do what’s necessary to achieve it. But like you said, when we use different products, there’s a tendency that they will cause more harm than good to our skin.

    My friend has been suffering from stubborn acne for quite sometime now which resulted from her irregular sleeping patterns. She’s a nurse just like you and her work requires her to work 12-hour night shifts. She’s tried almost every thing but her face has gotten worse. So thank you so much for this recipe. I’ll be sending her your link and I hope this works well for her.

    By the way, where can I buy organic sulfur?

    1. Author

      Hey Alice,

      Thank you for stopping by. Many commercial skin and beauty products are loaded with harmful chemicals that can be irritating to some skin. I personally have tried many acne products; they have left my skin red and sensitive. Thank god I sought natural remedies, and through several experiments with different ingredients and I finally came up with this homemade product that has helped me tremendously.

      12-hour night shift is a tough job for your friend. I probably had the worst acne during the period when I worked at the hospital. I believe it was the combination of lack of sleep, bad diet, and stress that gave me the worst acne breakout.

      Hopefully this recipe will work for her. You can buy it here. If you want to do little bit more research on the organic sulfur product, I have written a review for that, hopefully it helps.

      Good Luck

  29. The one thing that truly shocked me here was that cows milk can give you acne!
    I love drinking milk and drink it everyday but never in a million years would have thought that it could be causing problems for my skin.
    I’m definitely going to make my own facial spray thanks to your brilliant and easy to follow demonstration 🙂

    1. Author

      Hi Matthew,

      I was also shocked when I found out that milk was bad for skin. I have always been told that they are good for you.

      Most of the commercial milk comes from pregnant cows and the hormones in milk can actually react with hormones in your body and trigger the production of skin oils, which can clog your pores.

      And when you consume milk, it causes a rapid rise in blood sugar and insulin secretion from the pancreas. The insulin spike can have negative health effects, such as promoting inflammation in the body, which can worsen acne and other skin conditions.

      Try out the homemade facial spray and please let me know how this recipe works out for you.

      Best of luck to you,
      Hong
