Tea Tree Oil is a popular ingredient in many beauty products from cleansers to shampoos. Originating in Australia, this essential oil has the potential to improve a number of skin conditions such as, acne, psoriasis and eczema thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. It is also known as nature’s antiseptic, as it was used to soothe burns, treat wounds and heal scars following its discovery.
On oily skin, it cuts through excess grease and dirt to unclog pores and kills the acne causing bacteria on the skins surface, preventing future outbreaks. You can find it in daily skin care products and also in make-up, in concealers and foundations aimed at acne and blemish prone skins.
