Hey guys! I am writing this article out of sheer excitement and the need to share this secret with the world.

About a month ago, i was plagued with acne and had started breaking out, not just any acne but the kind that leaves those nasty spots making you look like one of the 101 dalmatian dogs. It was horrible! What was worse, i couldn’t figure out the cause of this sudden break out and why my skin was turning against me. I tried to eliminate the possible causes, no it wasn’t sweat clogging my pores from my regular 5-day -a-week workout sessions, nor was it the fact that i had just had my period. Of Course, like most girls , i had period pimples but they were gone as soon as my period was over and never left spots on my face. These new upshoots on my face were definitely as source of concern and fright too as i couldn’t imagine walking round town with a face such as this.

I shared my plight with everyone who cared to listen, most of whom had a solution or a certain trick they’d tried out and one they could swear by. Obviously, i was cautious however, as i didn’t want my desperation to turn me into a product junkie or make the situation worse. I had spoken to a colleague who had suggest an all natural receipe, she was the first of the lot who had suggested a natural fix. This made it easier to try, you can never go wrong with any thing natural.

Luckily, all the ingredients necessary were those that could be found in the kitchen, thus making this recipe very cost effective.
