You are excited to attend the most awaited wedding in your family and what awaits you is simply beyond your imagination. It’s the scary pimple on your cheek! Acne is the most common skin condition, which occurs due to the clogging of pores owing to the excessive production of sebum.
There are various skin care products available in the market that claim to solve your acne problems but sadly most of them are loaded with harmful chemicals like parabens, artificial fragrances, preservatives, and so on. These chemicals penetrate into the skin and cause irreparable damage to the skin as well as the body. Such chemical laden acne care products give way to effective natural remedies to treat acne problems.
One of the most effective remedies for acne is Tea Tree Oil. This essential oil is enriched with several healing qualities. It not only treats your acne problems naturally but it also keeps your skin protected against acne in the long run. Extracted from a tree native to Australia, tea tree oil has become an integral ingredient in most of the natural skin care products.
Tea tree oil also referred as Melaleuca oil possesses a pale yellow color and is extracted from the leaves of the plant Melaleuca alternifolia. It is powered with antifungal and antimicrobial properties and can be used in many ways to treat various skin problems. Let us see how it works in keeping the acne problems at bay.
Tea tree oil serves as a natural remedy for curing acne and it has been often compared with commercially used benzoyl peroxide in terms of its efficiency in treating acne problems. It is ideal for oily and acne-prone skin. Being rich in antibacterial and antimicrobial compounds, tea tree oil works actively in fighting against acne-causing bacteria. It seeps deep into the layers of the skin and unblocks the sebaceous glands. The pores further get unclogged and disinfected thereby reducing the acne issues. Tea tree oil also acts as a solvent and it helps in clearing away the dust and grease from the skin thus protecting your skin from oxidative stress.
Simply add few drops of tea tree oil to the water and mix well. Dip the cotton pad in this water and apply on the affected area or on the entire face to get relief. The anti-microbial properties of the tea tree oil will prevent the occurrence of acne on your skin and will make it clean and clear. Do this activity for twice in a week for visible results.
Soak the cotton pad in this and apply it to the affected area or the entire face.
Leave it on for 20-25 minutes, and once it dries, apply a moisturizer. There is no need to wash this off.
You can also 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.
