If you suffer from any form of acne or get the occasional breakouts around your periods, there's a 100% chance you've treated your skin to tea tree oil-infused skincare products or applied it on your face (mixed with a carrier oil, of course).
Tea tree oil is ah-mazing for the skin as it helps dry out the acne, help lighten the acne scars, help soothe irritated skin, eradicate the acne-causing bacteria, among the many other ways it benefits the skin. In fact, it is also beneficial to our scalp and if you often find yourself scratching your head as if it's a lottery card, you should try tea tree haircare products today.
Here are some of the best tea tree oil products that you need in your life.
Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant and miraculously works against acne and other germ causing skin and hair woes. That is why it is a hero ingredient in so many products. And here are some of those that you NEED in your life:
If your acne visits you more than your friends do, you need to try a face wash with tea tree oil. It'll not only gently remove all the dirt and oil but also other impurities from your face which will ensure that acne stays at one arm's distance. The Body Shop's Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash ticks all the right boxes and you can use it daily as it doesn't dry out the skin.
Of course, we had to talk about toning the skin!
After you've washed your face, the next step is to use a toner. It'll not only balance the pH levels of your skin but also maintains the oil levels. The Oriental Botanics Australian Tea Tree Face Toner is a must if you have acne-prone skin as it controls excess sebum production, gets quickly absorbed into the skin, helps reduce acne and keeps the overall skin looking clean and fresh. Use it twice daily and we bet you're going to fall in love with your skin, again.
Using a facial moisturizer daily is a must. If you have oily skin, look for a tea tree oil moisturizer that not moisturizes (like it's supposed to) but also gets easily absorbed into the skin without feeling too heavy on the skin. Oriflame's Love Nature Face Lotion Tea Tree is a lightweight, daily wear moisturizer that'll hydrate and eradicate...those acne-causing bacteria.
If you have a severe flaky situation on your scalp and your shoulders look as if it snowed recently, tea tree oil is gonna be your saviour. Enriched with cleansing properties, tea tree oil nourishes the scalp while unclogging hair follicles and removing dandruff for good. It'll also help you get rid of an itchy scalp.
And if all these things are something you wish to get relieved from, you have to try the Aroma Magic Oil Balancing Shampoo that also has the goodness of aloe vera, shikakai and reetha that deeply cleanses the scalp, making it feel all squeaky clean.
Waking up to skin that is hydrated, supple and free of acne is a dream! When we are busy taking our beauty sleep, our skin is repairing itself and probably why a night mask is the best thing you can do for your skin.
Biotique's Advanced Organics Tea Tree Skin Clearing Night Mask is infused with tea tree oil that has antifungal properties which help keep acne away. It also controls the production of excess sebum and purifies the skin so that you wake up to a clear complexion, every morning.
