DIY Cooling Cucumber Toner for acne

How to apply DIY acne gel

  • Cleanse your face with your facial cleanser.
  • Now put your clean face towel in hand held hot water and soak it.
  • Wring out the face towel, and place the hot cloth over your face for a couple of minutes.  This will open pores to make the gel go inside the pores and heals acne from inside.
  • Now apply your DIY acne gel. The Cinnamon and lavender oil will help to reduce the enlarged pores and also control the production of skin oil.
  • If needed, apply moisturizer when the gel has completely penetrated into the skin.
  • Apply this DIY acne gel twice or thrice in a day after cleansing your face.


  • Be sure to do a patch test to make sure your skin does not have an adverse reaction to the oils. The inner forearm is a great place to do a test since the skin is delicate, similar to facial skin.
  • Additionally, pregnant women, infants, and young children should avoid certain essential oils. so be sure to do your homework beforehand.
  • keep the DIY acne gel container away from sunlight.
