I thought acne would disappear once I got out of my teenage years, but I was wrong. I get pimples on my chin, nose, and forehead every month due to hormonal changes. The redness and swelling are not only unsightly; it's painful. I've tried so many skincare products, but they fail each and every time. Tired of spending money, I began researching the best ways to cure my acne.
Then I Discovered Tea Tree Oil
My friend recommended tea tree oil as an affordable alternative to expensive skincare products. I thought I would give it a try because if you're desperate to fix your skin you'll try anything. The first time I used tea tree oil, I dabbed some on a zit before going to bed. By morning, not only did the swelling decrease by half, but the redness also went away. After putting another dab of tea tree oil on it, it was gone by the evening. It's no wonder it worked so quickly; tea tree oil has so many benefits for your skin.
Benefits of Tea Tree Oil
- Antiseptic. Tea tree oil can be used on cuts and burns because it disinfects bacteria that can cause an infection.
- Heals wounds: Tea tree oil reduces swelling and can pump up white blood cell activity around a wound, causing it to heal quicker.
- Controls acne: Tea tree oil has been found to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, a common ingredient in most acne medications.
- Mouth health: Tea tree oil is great when used in toothpaste and mouthwash as it fights bacteria that cause infection. It also reduces swelling in sensitive gums.
- Allergic reactions: Tea tree oil is known to soothe inflamed skin from bug bites and other irritants.
- Improves dandruff: When used in shampoo, tea tree oil helps reduce dandruff and the symptoms associated with it such as itchiness and greasiness.
- Athlete's Foot: Tea tree oil is an antifungal and can relieve symptoms of peeling, cracking, and odor.
I like to use soap that has tea tree oil in it to clean my makeup brushes at least once a week. Doing so helps keep the brushes free of harmful bacteria that you could be spreading all of your face when you put makeup on. I buy mine from FARMASi for just $5.90 and it lasts me six months if I'm just using it to clean my brushes. But there are so many other products I use that contain tea tree oil in it. There's a face wash, toner, face mask, face cream, serum, hand wash, and toothpaste. The best part is it is generally very affordable.
