DIY Mario Badescu Drying Lotion

Make Your Own Overnight Blemish Treatment

What if we told you there was a DIY blemish-zapping lotion that not only shrinks the pesky thing, but also reduces the redness, and can even kill bacteria? You'd probably kiss us right on the mouth and jump for joy, right?

You can make your own overnight treatment at home — inspired by Mario Badescu's Drying Lotion ($17). All it takes is your favorite astringent (or tea tree oil) and a bottle of calamine lotion.

This homemade remedy will cost you less than $10 at the grocery store and will last you around six months to boot!

Ingredients

2 parts tea tree oil or astringent
1 part water
Calamine lotion
2-3 inch container

Directions

Mix one part water with two parts of tea tree oil or astringent. From here, using a dropper, fill your bottle 1/3 of the way full with calamine lotion. Then fill the rest of the bottle with your water/tea tree oil mixture. Let the calamine lotion settle at the bottom of the bottle so it separates from the oil mixture, then use a cotton swab to dip into the bottle, absorbing both the liquid and the calamine lotion.

Let sit on your blemish overnight and wash off in the morning. Protect your skin with moisturizer.
