Have you heard a little about tea tree oil being great for the skin and want to know more? The truth is, tea tree oil can benefit the skin in some very specific and yet completely natural ways. This essential oil possesses its incredible properties thanks to an Australian native tree. You see, it is steam-distilled from the branches and leaves of the shrub-like Melaleuca. It has a wonderfully distinct piney and refreshing smell, which is we love it so much!
Now, let’s take a closer look at five ways tea tree oil can help your skin look radiant:
You’ll probably be excited to hear that tea tree oil can be used by acne sufferers. According to the American Association of Dermatology, clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of the topical application of pure tea tree oil on acne-prone skin, particularly for mild to moderate cases. According to the Dermatology Review, the antiseptic properties of tea tree oil destroy the bacteria colonizing on the skin’s surface, which is the underlying cause of acne.
Tea tree oil also sinks into the skin to help clear pores clogged with natural oils and debris. Tt’s non-comedogenic – another wonderful property. Tea tree oil is a low-irritant to the skin, so this natural alternative is becoming increasingly popular as people look to avoid the side effects that can accompany chemical-based acne treatments.
According to Healthline, studies have shown pure and diluted tea tree oil to be more effective than some prescription treatments at reducing the symptoms of eczema. Primarily, this is because of tea tree oil’s anti-inflammatory properties which help lessen the skin irritation that is associated with eczema. Its antibacterial properties are also key to stopping any infection from spreading during eczema flare ups.
