When you're lying by the pool, it's great to feel the hot summer rays, but the pesky sweat that comes along with the heat isn't fun - not to mention the nasty breakouts that will surely follow. For the times when you can’t avoid those pesky pimples, use this simple DIY anti-breakout solution.

Despite initial thought, natural oils are actually great healing solutions for flared skin. And too much oil may not be your number one problem.

When your lovely mug is deprived of oil, your body produces more in order to overcome the issue, which results in more acne.

The coconut oil used in the serum is a natural antibacterial and anti-fungal formula that will help reduce redness and puffiness, while fighting bacteria. Tea tree oil is also a natural antibacterial and anti-fungal formula that will help kick out unwanted blemishes.

This zit zapper is the perfect size and fits perfectly in an old lip balm tube. You can discretely stash it in a purse or your cosmetic bag.

Try it out today! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients-
1/8 cup coconut oil
4 drops of tea tree oil
1 recycled lip balm tube

Directions-
Melt the coconut oil on a stove top, when melted add drops of tea tree oil and stir to combine. Use an eye drop dropper to add the DIY formula into the lip balm tube. The oil should set up rather quickly and place in the fridge for an easy DIY way to knock those blemishes goodbye.
