4 Reasons Why Tea Tree Oil Should Be Your Summer BFF

We see it in numerous skincare formulations, tea tree oil is really a godsend! From healing acne to reducing pore size, there are so many benefits tea tree oil has to offer that we can’t help but trust in its abilities to cure our skin concerns. Especially if you are someone who experiences regular breakouts and has oily skin, this plant-based oil is the remedy you’ve been searching for all your life. It’s a natural source of healing that agrees with most skin types and does a phenomenal job of soothing skin. As with all skincare, a patch test is mandatory but once you find that your skin agrees with it, there’s a whole world of skincare perks to gain from it. Yes, you can opt for tea tree infused OTC products, but if you want the real deal, tea tree essential oil is your best bet. Here’s why we love it and how exactly you can add it to your summer skincare routine.

What Is Tea Tree Oil?

Tea tree oil is a plant-based essential oil that is popular for treating acne and oily skin concerns. It can also be used in hair care to treat dandruff and promote a clear and healthy scalp. Tea tree oil has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that work like magic to banish pimples, blackheads, and whiteheads. When applied to the skin, it feels minty cool and it immediately works to control sebum production and clear up bacteria from pores. It also helps heal acne scars and prevents future breakouts.

4 Ways To Elevate Your Summer Skincare Routine With Tea Tree Oil


The Perfect Moisturiser

This has got to be one of our favourite hacks with tea tree oil. If you want to moisturise your skin in the summer but are lowkey insecure about whether or not your moisturiser really agrees with your skin, customise it with a bit of tea tree oil. This works to keep oily skin in check and acne-prone skin as well. Take a dollop of moisturiser and mix one drop of tea tree oil with it. Now apply as usual and you will find that your skin feels cool and refreshed and inflammation is instantly soothed.

The Terminator

Got a huge pimple? Spot correct with tea tree oil. Using tea tree oil as a spot corrector will, first of all, give you instant relief and secondly, it will gently exfoliate and soothe the area to help the lesion reduce in size. To use this hack, take a tiny bit of aloe vera gel and mix it with a drop of tea tree oil. Apply this to the affected areas after cleansing and toning your skin. You can then follow with moisturiser, sunscreen, and makeup if need be.

Refreshing Toner

If you want your skin to feel cooler for longer during the summers, try a DIY tea tree oil-infused toner. It will combat oiliness and prevent sudden breakouts by keeping your skin refreshed and pores clear. Tea tree oil also helps reduce pore size by cooling the skin. To use it in toner form, mix 10 to 15 drops of tea tree oil with a 100ml mixture of equal parts water and rose water. Store this in a clean bottle in the fridge and apply it on your skin with a cotton pad after cleansing.

Face Value

If you like using face packs as much as the rest of us, tea tree oil can be added to this beauty ritual too. This hack can make any face pack an acne-fighting and oil-controlling one without much effort. All you have to do is add 1 to 2 drops of the oil in your face pack mix and apply it as usual. Try making a face pack with bentonite clay powder and water and mixing in a drop of tea tree oil. Apply it on your face and wash it off after it dries up for shine-free, detoxified skin.
