Alright, so I recently started using this remedy and my skin already looks and feels better. I've been struggling with acne since I was about 7, and absolutely nothing has worked for me as much as this has. Here's what you need:
-small bowl
-water
-lavendar (flowers & leaves)
-pure white sugar
-cilantro
-ice cubes
Boil the water while you're preparing the remedy.
Strip two to three lavendar stems, and crush the flowers and leaves. Add this to the bowl.
Pour a few spoonfuls of the sugar over the lavendar.
Add a few pinches of cilantro.
When the water is hot (but not TOO hot), pour about 1/4 cup into the bowl. Stir the bowl by swishing the liquid around the other ingredients.
Apply the mixture to your face, massaging it in for about a minute.
Rinse off your face with warm water, and pat your face dry.
After you're done with the remedy, rub your face with an ice cube. (It is important that you don't skip this step -- the sugar is an exfoliant and therefore will open your pores. The ice will close your pores again so that they don't get clogged. If they get clogged, your acne will only get worse.)
This remedy is especially helpful if you have mild to moderate acne and/or acne scarring.

There is no such thing as pure white sugar. White sugar is bleached and processed. Better off using natural sugar, which is more brown in color. Like Sugar in the Raw, not to be mistaken for brown sugars that have molasses for baking.
