Having an extremely oily skin, I believe that’s what causes acne and blackheads on my face. I have earlier tried the body shop tea tree face wash and the body shop tea tree face toner, which I found really soothing on my skin. Can’t really say if that helped to get rid of my face acne, but yes, it did helped in controlling acne to a large extent. So when I ran out of these products, I decided to try tea tree oil for acne. Knowing the amazing benefits of tea tree oil I decided to try it in my daily beauty regime. Tea tree oil is antibacterial, antifungal, and had antiseptic properties which works really great on acne prone skin. So today, I be sharing with you’ll three ways that I use tea tree oil to treat acne. If you are using tea tree for the first time I suggest you do a patch test or use the below acne remedy tips as spot treatment.
Use tea tree oil as Face Toner:
- 1 cup water
- 6-7 drops tea tree oil
- Spray bottle
- Cotton pad
- Add drops of the oil to the water and mix well and pour it into the spray bottle..
- Spray it on your face after washing your face or just use a cotton pad to apply the concoction evenly on face.
- You can leave it on for 20-25 minutes, once dried,you can apply a moisturizer.
I prefer to spray it over my face before going to bed. If you want to use it as a spot treatment, you can add drops of tea tree oil on a cotton bud and gently press it against the acne, pimples, or spots. Leave it on for a couple of hours or overnight to reduce the redness and swelling.
