Back to School-Ready Skin: Tea Tree Oil for Acne

Back to school can be stressful: having to wake up early for class, homework, plus all the other stressors that come with the end of summer holidays. If you deal with acne on a regular basis, you can add that to the list. However, we’ve got some tips for back to school-ready skin to help make things a little easier – including using tea tree oil for acne.

Tea tree oil for acne is a great natural alternative to those harsh, chemical-filled cleansers many rely on for clear skin. It works as well as these cleansers – but you don’t have to worry about any nasty side-effects! Here are a few tips on how to use it:

  • Spot treatment – dab some tea tree oil on a cotton swab or cotton ball and apply it to your face wherever you have problem areas. Don’t rinse.
  • Toner – mix four drops of tea tree oil in a cup of water, put some on a cotton pad and go over your face and neck after cleansing. Store it in a glass jar and shake well before each use.
  • Moisturizer – in a small, airtight container, combine 10 drops of tea tree oil, 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel and ½ teaspoon of coconut oil. Apply at night to clean skin and rinse it off in the morning. Store it in a cool, dark place.
  • Face mask – once a week, mix four drops of tea tree oil with an egg white. Whisk it together and apply it to a clean face. Leave it on for about 15 minutes, then rinse well. Save it for the weekend and relax and de-stress while you’re waiting for it to dry.

Here are some other tips to help in your quest for clear skin:

  • Get enough sleep. The odd all-nighter may be unavoidable, but don’t try and overdo it – this will show on your skin!
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Wear your sunscreen!
  • Keep your face moisturized. If the natural oils in your skin are stripped (often the result of harsh astringents or cleansers), it will work to produce more oil, thus leading to pimples.
  • Make sure you’re washing the day’s makeup from your skin every night before bed (or even better, whenever you get home).
  • Change your pillowcase often.

Show your best face to the world. Use these back to school-ready skincare tips for beautiful skin, no matter the stress in your life!

Tea tree oil is well-known as a powerful natural acne fighter, and this week we thought we’d change it up a bit with a few different DIY methods for using this amazing essential oil to say bye-bye to blemishes!

Tea tree oil works for acne because it contains terpinen-4, an antimicrobial agent which destroys the bacteria that causes acne. Its powerful antiseptic and antifungal properties don’t hurt either. Together these make it the perfect alternative to those other chemical-filled options. Additionally, instead of stripping those oils from your skin as the chemical treatments do, tea tree oil helps to balance skin’s natural oil production. It penetrates deep into the skin to unblock the sebaceous glands, disinfect pores, and dry out blemishes.

Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatments

  • One of the best ways to add tea tree oil to your acne-fighting routine is by adding it to your regular cleanser and moisturizer. Simply add 2-6 drops to your favourite products and use as you normally would.
  • For a natural spot treatment, place a few drops of tea tree oil onto a damp cotton ball (to dilute the tea tree oil), then gently dab onto pimples or spots. This will help to reduce redness and swelling and clear up the blemishes.
  • Another great way to open up those pores and loosen the bacteria, allowing your cleaner to strip it away, is with a tea tree oil stream. Start by boiling a pot of water and pouring the water into a large bowl. Add 5 drops of tea tree oil into the bowl and blend. Drape a towel over your head and lean into the steam for 5 minutes. Repeat on a weekly basis.
  • For a great soothing recipe, mix a few drops of tea tree oil and two teaspoons aloe vera gel and apply to the affected areas of your face before bed. In the morning, rinse with water and pat dry.
  • For breakouts, mix equal portions of grape seed and jojoba oils and then add a few drops of tea tree oil in a small bowl. Spread the oil mask all over your face, leave on for 15 minutes, then rinse.

When it comes to natural acne fighters, tea tree oil packs a powerful punch, and these simple DIY acne treatment recipes are really effective.

Most of us start our days the same way, with a beauty routine we’ve kept for a while, for a variety of reasons. We do certain things because they work for us, often not even considering a change. But have you considered making a change? Have you considered how tea tree oil can have a big impact with very little effort? Adding tea tree oil to your regular beauty routine has a number of impressive benefits.

Tea tree oil for moisture: Tea tree oil is great for moisturizing dry and cracked skin. Mix one or two drops of tea tree oil with one tablespoon of almond or coconut oil and gently massage it into the areas that could use a little extra attention, especially your knees, elbows and heels for lasting relief from dry skin.

Tea tree oil for acne: we’ve all heard it before – tea tree oil is great for acne. A 5% tea tree oil solution is as effective as a 5% solution of benzoyl peroxide, without the harsh chemical impacts. Next time you wake up with a blemish, try something as simple as a small dab of tea tree oil on the spot to dry it out and clear it up.

Tea tree oil for hair: tea tree oil is also great for your hair. Mixing a few drops of tea tree oil into your regular shampoo and massaging it into your scalp will unclog your hair follicles. This helps to nourish the roots and strengthen your tresses, inducing hair growth. This can also help to get rid of dandruff.

Tea tree oil for lips: add one or two drops of tea tree oil to your regular lip balm and use it to fight chapped lips.

Tea tree oil for your mouth: tea tree oil is an effective mouthwash thanks to its antimicrobial properties. Dilute 1 or 2 drops of tea tree oil in a glass of water and rinse your mouth with it. Remember, don’t swallow!

Tea tree oil for makeup brushes: add a couple of drops of tea tree oil to a clean spray bottle full of water. Mix well. Spray your brushes with this antibacterial treatment (between your brush washes), to neutralize the bacteria that can clog your pores and cause blemishes.

Tea tree oil is great for so many things – switch up a few things in your beauty routine today and see the results.

tp3No matter your age, if you suffer from acne you know what it is like to be self-conscious about your skin. The urge to pick or pop, the inability to leave the house without some form of makeup or covering, and the constant threat of a breakout can leave you stressed and seeking help. Well, we’re here to deliver with some tips about how to use tea tree oil for acne for real results.

Tea tree oil, or melaleuca oil, has long been celebrated as a natural treatment for acne – it is a great alternative to those harsh chemicals and harsh treatments. Derived from the leaves of the tea tree, this essential oil has natural healing properties thanks to its concentration of antibacterial and antimicrobial agents – making it the perfect natural acne treatment.

No harmful irritants. As mentioned, tea tree oil for acne is a great alternative to those over-the-counter products – the ones usually containing benzoyl peroxide – as studies have found that a 5% concentration of tea tree oil is just as effective – with 0% of the side effects.

How to use tea tree oil for acne:

Step 1 – wash. Wash your face using an all-natural, soap free cleanser to gently cleanse the skin without drying it out, removing impurities and the excess build-up of oils to cleanse the pores – while at the same time not removing those necessary oils that help keep the skin nourished.

Step 2 – tone. Once your face is clean, you want to make sure to gently tone and tighten the skin to keep it free from debris without drying. Look for one that contains not only tea tree oil (of course), but also witch hazel, a natural astringent, Aloe Vera to soothe the skin and lavender oil to calm.

Step 3 – moisturize. Once your face is clean, make sure to pump up the moisture volume with a hydrating facial cream to restore skin’s natural moisture balance. Make sure that it is non-comedogenic so that it won’t clog those pores you just cleaned out. Look for one with a blend of natural moisturizers including macadamia nut, rose hip and vitamin E oils.

When you’re on the go and notice a spot appearing but don’t have the time or resources to do your whole 3-step routine (nor should you – remember, over washing can actually make the skin drier, causing it to overproduce oil, leading to breakouts), just use an on-the-go solution, such as a blemish stick. Grab one containing tea tree oil, vitamin E and spearmint.
