10 Tea Tree Oil Uses You Should Know

1.Tea Tree Oil for Acne.

Since tea tree oil is a good anti-bacterial agent, it is obvious that you can use it to help your immune system fight the bacteria and therefore reduce the inflammation.

Place a few drops on a cotton swab and apply it to the affected area of your skin. (Remember that applying too much will dry your skin). Tea tree oil can be a good substitute for benzoyl peroxide as an acne treatment; its results are similar to benzoyl peroxide acne treatments with much less side effects. Benzoyl peroxide side effects include itching, stinging, burning, and dryness.

On the other hand, if you are using a product that contains benzoyl peroxide, do not use tea tree oil for acne treatment at the same time, otherwise, your skin will get irritated. [Source: HowStuffWorks]
