Recently, Tea Tree Oil has become an extremely popular ingredient in all kinds of cosmetic products, and all credit is due to it’s famous healing powers. An Australian native, Tea Tree Oil’s healing qualities have been known to the aboriginal tribes for thousands of years, where is was used to soothe the skin and to heal wounds. Tea Tree Oil and I befriended one another many years ago when my skin decided to throw a tantrum and I was greeted with red angry bumps all over my face. My knight in shining armour (my mum) handed me a tea tree oil face wash, and lo and behold, my skin was soothed and I forever a loyal devotee to this liquid gold.
Some of the best tea tree skin care products that I have come across are the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash and the Tea Tree Oil from the Body Shop (see links below). After using these two products for quite some time and noticing the difference they made to my skin, I just had to go and buy replacements as soon as I ran out!
Tea tree oil is an excellent treatment for acne. One study found tea tree oil to be just as effective as benzoyl peroxide, but without the negative side effects like redness and peeling. Leaving your skin feeling plumped and refreshed, the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash is gentle and for best results I recommend cleansing your skin with it twice a day. It removes all impurities, makeup and excess oil without over drying or irritating your skin. This Facial Wash was an answer to all my lazy girl woes as I dont have to use anything else to give my skin the boost it needs; for me, The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash ticks all the boxes, and it is friendly to your bank account too 😉
For days when your skin is engaged in an all out war, Body Shop’s Tea Tree Oil is your best weapon! Labeled as one of their beauty gems (and with good reason) this little vial is your answer to getting rid of any spots or blemishes quickly. With antibacterial properties it heals the affected areas on your skin and soothes the skin. I recommend cleansing your skin in the evening and then popping the tea tree oil over night onto the affected area to reduce swelling and to remove any bacteria. My tips are to use the tea tree oil either on its own, or mixed in with your moisturiser of choice. Dab the tea tree oil onto a clean cotton bud and dab directly onto the affected area, or you can also mix in one to two drops of the oil into your moisturiser, blending into the skin for a more full coverage, and to give your skin a reviving boost.
Tea Tree Oil is an amazing agent for your skin, giving it a much needed boost or to give it a natural healthy glow, keeping any spots or blemishes at bay. Now widely available over the counter (Boots, Superdrug and The Body Shop) and in a plethora of skin care products, tea tree oil is a brilliant in clearing and rejuvenating the skin with regular use 🙂
