If you suffer from acne, tea tree oil might sound like a good option for getting rid of it – but does it work? There’s so much hype around natural treatments now sometimes the truth gets buried for the sake of being environmentally friendly.
tea tree oil per cistite. This essential oil from Australia is a very powerful anti-septic. It has a very strong smell (although not an unpleasant one) and stings a bit, like chemical anti-septics. Unlike the chemical ones though, tea tree oil is natural and can really help your skin. Applying it to acne that’s just been opened up by steam is a very powerful way to deal with acne.
Steam. Steam is very effective at opening the pores and helping the skin to sweat. This flushes out the bacteria and the oils that cause acne in the first place. This will help your skin to be clearer. Everyone knows the importance of keeping your skin clean (especially if you’ve got acne or acne prone skin), and steaming helps to flush the skin from the inside out (the most effective way to clean the skin for sure!).
Studies show that tea tree oil is very effective for treating acne. In fact it treats both inflamed and non-inflamed acne. If we compare this treatment with benzoyl peroxide, we will find that it take longer time then benzoyl peroxide to show its effectiveness but it does not cause dryness, peeling and flaking like benzoyl peroxide.
Adding tea tree oil to your regular skin care routine of washing, moisturizing, and exfoliation is the best natural cure for acne, and it won’t cost you a lot.
Every home should have a bottle of this oil in the medical chest. It can be applied neat to stings from insects or plants. If you or your partner suffers from bad breath, you can try gargling with a mixture of oil, water and alcohol. It may not taste great but it will reduce the effects of your halitosis.
If you’ve got mold in your home you might even want to try it out on that before considering other chemicals. One of the ways you can use it is by adding some drops to an oil diffuser.
