Natural or herbal only skin care products may not be the most potent thing out there but there is one ingredient that always comes through when battling with acne and dandruff. That is, tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is harvested from the leaves of a plant native to Australia. Its antibacterial and antifungal properties have been found helpful in treating issues like acne, ringworm, athletes’ foot and dandruff. If your skin is too sensitive for the accessible acne-fighting ingredient, benzoyl proxide, this oil is a good alternative for dealing with acne caused by bacteria. Best results are gotten when it is used along side other anti-acne products. It also deals with the redness, itchiness and flakiness that accompanies such issues.
It is important to know that it can be irritating and trigger allergic reactions. If it is your first time trying out this ingredient, make sure to do a patch test. Although it is not a miracle treatment, with constant use, you will see great improvement in the problem area. We have narrowed down 5 products containing tea tree oil that you should try.
