How to use tea tree oil for acne

tea tree oil for acne

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
  1. Add drops of the oil to the water and mix well and pour it into the spray bottle..
  2. Spray it on your face after washing your face or just use a cotton pad to apply the concoction evenly on face.
  3. 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.

Acne is caused by various reasons. It could be due to hormonal changes, poor lifestyle,stress, pollution, oily skin or anything. Before you begin with any home remedies think of the factors that is causing sudden acne breakouts on your skin. Knowing the reason behind the breakouts will help you get rid of the acne faster.

Turmeric Face Mask To Fight Acne

I am sure all of you are very much aware of this wonderful spice known as ‘Turmeric’. Apart from being a common kitchen staple in India, it is also widely used in beauty regime by many.

Some of the beauty benefits of Turmeric includes:

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-aging
  • Reduces skin pigmentation and skin tanning
  • Controls acne
    Looking at these amazing benefits of Turmeric, I decided to go ahead a try on my skin.

    I had been experimenting with few turmeric face masks at home. The reason I shifted more towards natural beauty remedies has a story.Two months back I had to tackle crazy sudden breakouts around and close to my chin. Going for a facial at that moment was the worst and most stupid decision I had ever taken. It only made my face more red and real bad. Never go for facial when you have breakouts, it will just spread more. So, long story short, I wanted to share this very simple turmeric face mask recipe that helped me to get rid of the acne and gradually lighten those stubborn acne scars. I have an oily skin so this recipe is specially suitable for those with oily skin.
    Natural remedies takes time to show results, but it does work! 


  • 2 tablespoons besan.
  • 1-1/2 tablespoon curd.
  • 1 or 1/2 teaspoon turmeric.


  • Mix all the ingredients together to get a thick paste.
  • Use this as a spot treatment or all over your face .
  • Leave it on for 10-12 minutes.
  • Rinse with lukewarm  water.

How Often?

Do this once or twice a week to see the desired results.


If you are using turmeric for the first time, ensure that you do a patch test prior to using the remedy.

Mac Candy Yum Yum: Lipstick Review

Mac Candy Yum Yum

I wore this shade today after quite a long gap and found it way too loud to wear it at work, so I decided to sober it down a little by covering it with a second layer of NYX stockholms smlc.It still looked pink, but without the florescent tone. Nevertheless , I still adore this shade for its smooth texture and bright pink color that gives my face a happy glow everytime I apply it. What I don’t like about this lipstick is the feel of the product on my lips after having it on for some time (1-2 hours). It turns very crayon like and makes my lips super dry. Always wipe off any product on the lips with a wet tissue and then reapply else, it would look cakey. Over all Mac Candy Yum Yum is a lovely shade. It is highly pigmented, has beautiful color pay off and like most Mac matte Lipsticks it stays pretty long on lips. This shade is quite a attention grabber because of the neon touch in it,so when you have this shade on be ready to get some heads turned 😉

Shade: Candy Yum Yum

Price: 1400 INR

Pros of MAC Candy Yum Yum Lipstick:

  • Highly pigmented
  • Bright Pink
  • Stays long

Cons of Candy Yum Yum:

  • Accentuates fine lines
  • Any sort of dryness on lips can make it look cakey
  • Expensive

My Final thoughts on MAC candy yum yum:
I love the lipstick for the reason that it is bright and lifts up my face even on days when I don’t put my makeup on. It is such a bright pink that I guarantee it will draw all the attention to your lips.  However, I feel it is not an unusual color either. Like paying 1450 rupees for this pink shade would not be a smart choice when there are similar shade available in different brands for much cheaper price. Talking about the dupe of mac candy yum yum , I suggest you to check out Shocking pink by nyx matte lipstick. They both look pretty same, while nyx matte lipstick is much moisturizing than the mac matte lipsticks. Price wise, Nyx is much cheaper. Have a look at the Nyx lipstick here:
