Tea-tree oil

For a long time, I have heard about tea tree oil being used for various things in cosmetics. I have also used some day and night cream containing Tea tree oil to help with my dry skin. This year I decided to try the tea tree oil on my face to help with mild acne I have recently developed.

First time I used it was after I had thoroughly washed my face, I used 4 drops one on my chin, forehead and one on each cheek. Followed by an olive night cream.  My skin is left feeling moisturized but not oily.

After two weeks of using the tea-tree oil continuously, my skin feels less tight, and the appearance of redness due to the mild acne has lessened.  Throughout the day my skin is not oily and feels a bit more hydrated than normal.

If you are looking for a natural method to help fight mild acne, I encourage you to try using tea tree oil.
