Tea Tree Oil For Acne Remedy
Tea Tree essential oil, because of its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties, helps reduce skin redness, irritation, and swelling. The oil is a powerful solvent, which means it breaks the oil, dirt, and debris that builds up under our skin and clogs up our pores. It is important, however, not to overuse this oil, even diluted with water or carrier oils (which I highly recommend).
It is best to limit the use of this oil to once or twice a month, and only at night to prevent any sun damage or photo-sensitivity. It is also important not to mix tea tree oil with other products with active ingredients like benzoyl peroxide, retinol-A, and salicylic acid.
Tea Tree Oil uses to control acne and destroys the skin-dwelling bacteria that causes acne. Tea Tree Oil is beneficial as an acne treatment because of its antiseptic properties, killing acne-causing bacteria. Tea Tree Oil is an excellent choice for treating poor skin conditions. Found in most acne ingredients to help skin remedies, Tea Tree Oil can be applied to pimples as an immediate treatment. This natural acne recipe is also full of probiotics to help invigorate your skin.
Benefits: Helps cleanse bacteria that may cause acne.
