Tea Tree- Lets Fights Acne! One-On-One!

The title of this article is what Tea tree has to say to acne….over hundreds of years now people have found themselves trapped in the ugly and intimidating world of acne….the ones resourceful…fought back…but the ones deprived…had to face the repercussions…and even today the battle continues…low self-esteem (especially amongst youngsters)…incapacitating condition…sleepless nights…strained relationships…have all been ‘some’ of the many of its grave effects..

Finally rose something from the untouched vegetation…nature’s pride…Tea tree oil (erm..I know that was a little mellow-dramatic)…anyway…now for your answer…why Tea tree oil for acne?

But before that…understand this Tea tree oil…

This oil is an essential oil obtained by pressing the leaves of the Tea tree…It in a way…some say…smells like camphor and is kind of transparent (Okay translucent! )  Natives of  Australia…the tree’s native location too…had long back brought the oil in their use…You know like even much before it developed a commercial market for itself…It vigorously fights-

  1. Virus
  2. Infections
  3. Bacteria

Now…for the question…How Tea Tree Oil fight acne?

What makes it take the highest position as far as best fighters of acne are concerned…is its antimicrobial property….and eventually the ability to kill the bacteria on skin that contribute to acne

This acne occurs when a pore becomes clogged with dead skin cells or oil produced by the skin…which in layman’s language we term as dirt…impurities..So…Once this occurs…bacteria get trapped inside the clogged pore… this in turn causes swelling and sores…especially when white blood cells attack the bacteria trapped in the pore… By fighting these…Tea tree eliminates the chances of the reoccurrence of the bacteria

Tea tree oil tones the skin even…It dries up the oil that’s there on the surface of the skin…hence ending the chance of the development and blocking the nourishment of the bacteria…

Tea tree oil has these great advantages over all other things…

1) Tea tree oil does not dry out your skin.
2) Tea tree oil gets the red out.
3) Tea tree oil fights the bacteria that cause pimples with ugly yellow centers…you will look better faster with tea tree oil

Okay so you know enough as to why to use Tea tree in place of anything else to cure acne…So..now have a look at our references..

Tea Tree Oil – Caressing the Skin

There were times in my life when I just wanted to put layers and layers of foundation and face powder to conceal…erm…no ‘conceal’ is rather sophisticated…I wanted to FAKE a flawless skin! Which I evidently didn’t possess…and then there were times I wanted to apply the juice of all possible edibles in my refrigerator (you see the height of desperation!)…hoping…wishing (whatever!) that the greens could fight the blues of my skin…and then the green indeed did the wonder…but ahem!! Not the veggies in the fridge…but the nature’s green Tea tree oil!

Now…I…being an ardent user of Tea tree essential oil…I’ll tell you why only Tea tree oil and nothing else…

Well…You know this Tea tree is this amazing dose of luxury for skin and can support its health in so many other ways….so any unpleasant encounters with skin and….thumbs up for Tea tree!

There’s fact you should be aware of…This Tea tree oil is not really obtained from the beverage tea plant…Nor it is a concoction from the green tea plantations….But these oils are distilled from the Malaleuca  plant widely grown in Australia…Now you know how it got the name ‘Tea-tree’..

Now what counts for Tea Tree to make it the best applicant for skin is its properties. it is

  • Antiseptic
  • Antibiotic

And not to our surprise these qualities of tea tree oils were always known and traditionally used by the locals for the treatment of skin infections and ugly eruptions on skin….and that how it invaded into the skincare market of today…and today it is hence a part of products like

  • cleansers
  • after shave lotions
  • scrubs
  • foams
  • moisturizers
  • anti- acne
  • blackhead removal products
  • foot creams
  • shampoos

A substance that will kill bacteria…micro-organisms and pests….That bacteria might be thriving on a pimple…or maybe any infectious skin eruption…or as fungus on toe nail or maybe as certain vaginal yeasts….Tea tree will bail you from the traps of these pests from anywhere and everywhere…

It happens to be that magic pen which when comes in contact with our skin…is bound to deliver magical and unbelievable results…usually by sucking out the impurities in the skin…leaving it scraped of extraneous substances..

Tea tree’s ability to ruin the being of apparently the most difficult…sticky and easily propagated bacteria and micro-organisms (even the ones left untreated by antibiotics)

As a matter of fact….acne…blackheads and dark spot are also actually a result of accumulation of dirt…sebum and thriving microorganisms…and bingo! Tea tree alone is an anti-squad for these…

And…it’s use…proliferating by every day…let’s do a quick recap…why..

1) It need not be consumed as antibiotic medicine which in turn has an  adverse effect on the liver
2) Most effective as a cure to numerous skin ailments
3) It is natural
4) It is useful as a preventive medicine to help stop the spread of germs and infections even before they start to harm the skin
5) Because nothing else can match its usefulness in its areas of activity

Hmm…know enough now..have a look behind the curtains..

Tea Tree Cares for Your Pet More Than You

So…you always thought you could care for your pet in the best possible fashion?

Yeah yeah…I agree…you get it vaccinated…You bathe that little fluffy creature…you pull out those ugly ticks with your own hands…You cuddle him…caress him…But did you ever think of defending the poor creature in anticipation from all the ills?

Probably…some of you might have…but for othersit’s time you went natural and safe and regular with Tea Tree Oil…

I’ll tell you why…

  • Tea tree oil (also called Melaleuca alternifolia) is a natural antiseptic for your pets…. The oil immediately penetrates outer skin layers and mixes with body oils to treat such conditions as insect bites…cuts…wounds…etc ( even for you! )

 

  • Tea tree oil has pain-numbing properties and can be used topically for ear infections…or any other outward infection of your pets..

 

  • Tea tree oil is an excellent antifungal and can be employed for pet medication of yeast and even ringworm…To fight plaque at your dogs teeth…brush with toothpaste containing tea tree oil…

Funnily enough our pets also suffer many of the same disorders as we humans do…tea tree oil can be used for pet medication of arthritis, bad breath, ringworm, or ear infections.like I just mentioned…
And for external application…mix 1 teaspoon tea tree oil with 1 cup of water…
And remember …hen using tea tree oil for pet medication…always dilute it as full strength can cause irritations…because it always recommended that..no other reason…

Try to apply it only on areas where your dog cannot lick it off…so that it does not intake the oil!

Tea tree oil has phenomenal properties…they are that Tea tree oil is

  • anti-fungal
  • anti-inflammatory
  • antiseptic properties

And these qualities of it work for both us and our pets….Again..I remind…just stick to its ‘external’ application…

As a pet medication….the solution should consist of 1 tsp. of tea tree oil mixed with 1 cup of water….It is better to err on the side of caution and a less strong solution could be administered….As stated…tea tree oil has excellent anti-fungal properties…Like I just mentioned in the previous paragraph…

If your pet has ringworm…you may want to consider using a low-concentration tea tree gel or otherwise diluting the tea tree solution in bath water…If your dog suffers from heavy plaque on their teeth…then a low-concentration tea tree oil toothpaste may be your answer….

Similarly……..For ear infections…using a tea tree oil product is preferable to using the water-based solution as the ear is a highly sensitive area….Tea tree oil also functions as a natural antiseptic and is great for treating your large pet’s cuts…burns…bites and bruises… (Mentioned earlier)
