Want to try this remedy for yourself? Well, you can use tea tree essential in the following ways to get rid of the acne quickly and efficiently:
1. Applying it directly
You can apply this essential oil directly to the affected area to get rid of the acne. Since tea tree essential oil has antibacterial properties, it is a great way to get rid of acne without exposing your skin to further chemicals. You can just apply a small amount of this oil to disinfect your pores, dry out your blackheads, whiteheads, and so on.
If you are applying it directly to the affected area, use a cotton bud or cotton pad and place a few drops of the oil on it. Then use this to dab on the affected area only and leave it on for a few hours.
Make sure that you always apply this oil to a clean and dry skin and use a 100% natural tea tree oil and not some product which contains this essential oil.
2. Making a homemade solution
Another great way to get rid of the acne with the help of this essential oil is by making a homemade spot treatment for yourself. A lot of people have sensitive skin and might feel a little dryness when they apply this essential oil directly to their skin so they can instead make a homemade acne solution to apply. Just mix a few drops of this essential oil with a few teaspoons of aloe vera gel or raw, organic honey.
Honey is known to have antibacterial properties and can help in the faster healing of the skin. Once your mixture is ready, you can apply it directly to your acne to get rid of it.
To make it easier to apply, you can store it in a lip-gloss container and apply it directly to the acne.
