Acai berries have a remarkable concentration of trace minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids, phytosterols, and antioxidants that help the skin regenerate, speeding up the healing process for acneic skin. The cornmeal and kaolin in this recipe act like a sponge that absorbs excess oils while drawing out toxins and impurities from your pores. The oat flour adds a soothing, moisturizing component. This recipe is highly beneficial to all skin types, especially oily and acne prone.
½ cup acai berry powder (can be replaced with Strawberry powder or carrot powder )
½ cup oat flour
½ cup finely ground cornmeal
½ kaolin clay

Close the lid tightly and shake well to blend to a uniform powder. Let stand for 5 minutes or so, letting the dust settle into the jar.
simply tap out of a bit of the powder into the palm of your hand and mix with water / hydrosol add a tiny bit at a time until a paste forms. Then softly cleanse your face using small circular motions. Rinse with warm water and follow with toner and moisturizer.
