Tea Tree is a favorite oil for acned teens and moms alike for quickly getting rid of unsightly blemishes. Just make sure that you dab it only on the blemish. If you don’t you will see very dry and flaky skin surrounding the healing blemish. Customers have told me that they apply it neat (straight) all over their faces. Don’t do this. You could get some immediate effects, but the longer term result of this as an on-going practice will yield an unbalanced acid mantle of the skin and even more breakout. A better solution is to use it diluted or better still, try our Break Out Ban (Acne Formula).
