Oils [rate]

Have you heard of tea tree oil?  When it comes to cleansing your face, a lot of magazines, articles, and blogs mention that you can use tea tree oil as an effective cleanser and more.  Much is made of the beneficial properties of tea tree oil for the skin, but what does it actually do? How does it clean? We’re going to answer all these questions and more.

Tea tree oil is a great natural alternative for getting rid of pimples.  It has unique disinfecting and soothing properties and, unlike other acne treatments, tea tree oil will not strip your skin of its natural oils and cause further damage. Once you learn how to use tea tree oil, it will be an effective tool in your battle against pimples.

 

Is Tea tree Oil Good For Face Cleansing?

Tea tree is good for face cleansing.  Extraordinarily good at it, in fact.  Most people think that acne is just a side effect of having poor skin.  They believe that they just have to go through life this way, never realizing that hormones and their cleansing routines and products may actually be far more to blame.

Skin is a delicate organ.  It may be the largest one we have, but it has to work hard to process and excrete a lot of things. Sometimes, it gets burdened by the process, traps oils, falls prey to a bad diet, or is suffering from an overly harsh skin care regime.  Tea tree oil is actually great to use for cleansing and nourishing skin because oil can get through to oil.  Water and cleansers strip oil from the skin without giving any protective layer of oil back, and the skin goes into an overproduction of sebum to compensate.

However, beneficial oils with pure ingredients derived from botanical sources and herbs can do wonders for your skin.  They can cleanse pores, heal, and protect, without stripping away that layer of oil.  This prevents the skin from getting too dry and too oily.  Tea tree is derived from Australia, where over three hundred species of the tree grow. Natives have known of the healing and rejuvenating properties of tea tree when it comes to cuts, wounds, and skin infections.

Tee Tree

Tea tree oil is strongly antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic, and antiviral, so much so that it’s part of the Australian army’s kit.  It cleanses and heals just as well as benzoyl peroxide, but with significantly less irritation and itching. You can rub it into your face with just two drops and then place a hot washcloth over your face and come out with an insanely cheap and effective beauty treatment.  Or use it in a spot treatment, a facial mask, scrub, or moisturizer.

Tea tree oil is obtained by steam distilling the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia.  It is not only used for facial cleansing, either! It is rumored to be good for clearing up congestion, cleaning, dandruff, bug bites, skin infections, healing baths, warts, chicken pox, ring worm, athlete’s foot, and softening up the skin. The unique botanical properties make this essential oil a must-own for your health as well as your beauty for its healthy and phenomenally effective results. Get rid of build up, acne, and dead skin cells, and make your skin clear and radiant once more with the help of tea tree oil.  Your skin never had it so good!
