If you are reading this, then you have probably not found the cure that you are looking for. Don’t worry. All of your skin problems can be effectively cured naturally by using Tea Tree Oil.
Tea tree oil has antiviral, antiseptic, anti-fungal and antibiotic properties. Due to these properties, the oil acts as a disinfectant and soothes the skin. While other treatment options may induce irritation and reddening of the facial skin,Tea Tree Oil does not produce any such effects if used in the correct manner. The oil itself is quite potent and the concentration as well as mode of application needs to be controlled. Moreover, the oil does not remove natural oils that are present within the skin. Other forms of treatment might deplete these natural oils which is not good for the skin’s health.

Tea Tree Oil works wonders for those who are suffering from acute acne, pimple and facial spots. Spot treatment can be made at home and you need not go for a branded treatment option for this. Make a mixture of aloe-vera gel (few teaspoons) and tea tree oil (few drops). Mix it well and apply the mixture on the spots. Take care to apply the mixture evenly while covering all the spots that are present on the face. You can substitute aloe-vera gel with honey if preferred.
Direct application of tea tree oil on the skin allows the oil to penetrate the skin and removes excessive sebum, kills bacteria and dry out blackheads, and whiteheads. The antibacterial properties of the oil make it an excellent remedy for treating skin problems naturally. But you need to be careful while applying the oil directly as it can cause skin irritation and reddening if done incorrectly.
The best way to apply tea tree oil directly on the skin is to take a cotton bud or a tissue, add a few drops of pure tea tree oil, and dab the affected area gently with it. You would have to leave this on for at least a few hours (preferably overnight). Soon your spots, pimples and acne would dry off and get removed, leaving behind a clear facial skin.
Just take care to clean and dry our face before applying the oil. Also, make sure that you get high quality pure tea tree oil.
