Having an extremely oily skin, I believe that’s one of the major reasons that causes sudden breakouts and stubborn blackheads on my face. So what made me try Tea tree Oil for acne? It all started when I was running out of my regular face wash from the body shop brand which has tea tree as the main ingredient.The tea tree essence in the face wash gave a very soothing feeling every time I washed my face with it.Overall, I had had a good experience with the body shop tea tree face wash.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 the product, instead of repurchasing the product I did some research on Tea tree essential oil and decided to try the oil for acne.
Benefits of Tea tree oil:
It 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.
