Acne and Natural Treatments - Aromatic Ingredients

Finding a topical treatment for acne is hard when you are looking for natural options. Retinoid creams, gels or lotions like salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide are often prescribed to treat the inflammation caused by acne and work by drying out the natural oils from your skin.

Tea Tree is fast becoming the oil used to treat the sudden breakouts without the nasty side effects of drugs or cortisone medications. With both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties to reduce redness and swelling, whilst also preventing microbial growth. Acne is usually active in people between the ages of 12 through to 25 but has been known to affect people of all ages. With skin becoming over sensitive more consumers are turning towards natural alternatives to treat acne without the irritating side effects.

How Does Tea Tree Oil Work?

Tea tree oil works its way deep into blocked pores helping to disinfect the area and help unclog sebaceous glands. It helps fight the acne bacteria that causes nasty breakouts. The natural terpinene content in Tea Tree oil dries out whitehead and blackhead pimples. Tea tree works as a cleanser and moisturiser removing grease and grime deep with the skins pores to help speed up the healing process.

Tea Tree oil must be diluted before used on your skin.

Tea Tree oil, like all essential oils, must be diluted before being applied to the skin, especially skin that is already sensitive from acne. With close ties to farmers here in Australia, you can rest assured that the oil your buying is from Australian suppliers to make it the perfect Aussie ingredient in your acne formulations.
