Your Face Needs a Drink: Acne Gel Made with Vodka

Bellasugar has a recipe for a DIY acne-fighting gel.
You can make it yourself and then guzzle the leftover vodka. Everybody wins!

You’ll need:

  • 15 marigold flowers
  • 2 cups of filtered water
  • 1 packet of vegetable gelatin
  • 15 drops of tea tree oil
  • 4 teaspoons vodka


  • Boil the water. Place the marigolds in a glass bowl and pour the boiling water over them. Let steep for about 1/2 hour.
  • Using a blender, mix the flowers and water together for about 30 seconds.
  • Strain the mixture, using cheesecloth, into a glass measuring cup.
  • In another glass bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of filtered, cool water with the gelatin. Slowly add the marigold mixture, and stir to blend.
  • Then, add in the vodka and tea tree oil, mixing very well to remove any clumps.
  • Finally, use a funnel to dispense the acne gel into a 4-ounce pump. Your gel will last for about eight weeks, stored in the fridge.
