Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 Hi Beautiful! My name is Kassie and I’m a 27 year old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty, being green, and writing which is why I started Beautiful Basics. In this blog you will find my thoughts on natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself.

I like to keep this blog as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoy!


I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Pimple Blaster

Pimple suddenly pop up and threaten to ruin your day? I’ve bragged and boasted about how much I adore honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice individually so today’s post is especially thrilling. Here is a recipe for a quick and powerful zit buster made using the 3 kitchen staples.

What you need:
An equal amount of lemon juice and apple cider vinegar (depending on how much you want to make, a small squirt should do)

Mix the lemon juice and vinegar together and apply directly onto the clean, affected area. Once it’s on the pimple apply a small amount of honey. The lemon juice and vinegar will help to kill the bacteria and reduce the inflammation and redness while the honey forms a barricade from the elements. Honey is also antibacterial. If you wish to sleep with this on your face and you’re not a back sleeper I would suggest putting a band aid over the top just to protect your pillowcases, although honey does dry so it won’t stay sticky all night.

I never would have thought that 3 things that I have in my pantry could be used for something like it! Interesting!
