I watched her as she faced her tormentors every day. They were merciless at times, and I saw her crack a time or two. She had told me at the beginning of the school year not to worry about it. She said she was used to it, and would take care of it herself. Besides, she had recently discovered a treatment for the outbreaks that she thought would help. Then I noticed that things started to change. Her face was slowly, but surely clearing up; and as her face cleared up, so did her attitude. For Kathy, Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment made a world of difference.
Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment: What Does it Treat?
The simple answer to that question is acne; the not so simple answer is all the stuff that falls under the umbrella of acne.
- Scaly, red skin/rosacea (Seborrhea)
- Blackheads and whiteheads (Comedones)
- Pinheads (Papules)
- Pimples (Pustules)
- Larger papules (Nodules)
- Possible Scarring
Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment: What causes acne?
Tea Tree Oil Treatment for acne will aid in stopping the causes of acne. Hair follicles in the skin are nodes where hairs grow and sebum (oil) is secreted by the sebaceous glands. When dead skin cells and dirt enter the openings of these pores and combine with copious amounts of sebum due to:
- Hormonal Surges
- Poor Hygiene
- Genetic Factors
- Bad Diet
The resultant hardening of detritus and clogged pores can lead to the blemishes and lesions mentioned above.
Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment: How Does It Work?
- Good Hygiene
- Balanced Diet
- Topical Skin Creams
- Benzoyl Peroxide Creams
- Oral and Topical Retinoids
- Topical and Oral Antibiotics
- Surgery (in extremis)
All these treatments have been shown to have some positive effect on moderate to severe acne. So which one of the above remedies does Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment simulate? Or does it act in an entirely different way? The answer is the one, or ones, that produce and anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial response.
- Good Hygiene – Soap and Water are the best prevention against skin conditions. A daily routine of light scrubbing with a moisturizing soap will do wonders for the skin. Take care not to use a soap that will irritate your skin.
- Balanced Diet – Eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones can go a long way toward preventing acne. Avoid Dairy and High Glycemic foods.
- Topical Skin Creams – Many of these creams actually contain 5% Tea Tree Oil in the product. It is good for moisturizing the skin and having an anti-inflammatory response on the blemishes.
- Retinoids – These oral or topical treatments are similar to Vitamin A, and as a result discourage the growth of Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), and other acne causing bacteria. They also, like Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment, reduce inflammation and microbial (bacterial) growth.
- Benzoyl Peroxide Cream – This is perhaps the treatment that is most similar to Tea Tree Oil and its properties. It has the anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits mentioned above, and with about the same 5% concentration. Although with more severe cases, Benzoyl Peroxide concentration can be increased to 10%.
Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment: Why Use It If It’s So Similar To Other Acne Treatments?
There are two reasons to use Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment:
- Reduced Tea Tree Oil Side Effects
- Cost Effective
Reduced Side Effects
- Less Skin Irritation
- Reduced Redness
- Not As Many Rash Outbreaks
- Reduced Soreness
- Reduction in Blemishes and Lesions
- Amount per Use is Lower
- More Cost Effective Due to per Use Ratio
If there is one drawback to Tea Tree Oil Acne Treatment, it’s that the results that you see will take longer to achieve. This seems like a minor thing though compared to the added benefit of reduced side effects with this treatment.

I never heard of tea tree oil before, but I really like using natural stuff on my face so I think I’ll check it out. I’ve been using Proactiv mostly for acne, but it’s always good to have another solution.

My wife already uses tea tree oil for various other skin problems and even infections, but never thought to try it on acne. I’m going to see about getting some for my daughter and letting her try it out. Can’t hurt. Great recommendations here.

My mother turned me on to tea tree oil and it seems to help me a lot. Way less expensive than other treatments, too.
