How To Use Tea Tree Oil for Acne
Here are a few different ways you can use tea tree oil for acne:
Mix a few drops (2-6 or so depending on the severity of the situation!) with your regular moisturizer. Avoid your eyes!
Add a few drops to your regular cleanser. Again, be careful not to get it in your eyes!
Mix 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of sesame or olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey and 10-ish drops of tea tree oil for a acne-fighting scrub. This is good for run of the mill breakouts, but could be a little too harsh for cystic acne. Tea tree oil and honey are even natural preservatives so you can keep this in a jar right in your medicine cabinet.
For acne on your body, you can add tea tree oil to your bath.
Add 5 drops of tea tree oil to 1/4 cup of plain yogurt and apply as a mask.
