It’s a teen’s worst-nightmare: the big trip is planned for spring break. He or she is going somewhere warm, has a new bathing suit all picked out, and then disaster hits — a huge pimple appears right in the middle of the forehead.
Luckily, there are effective natural acne treatment solutions to help your teen deal with acne that won’t dry out the skin or irritate it with harsh chemicals.
One of our favourite ways to fight acne is by using tea tree essential oil.
According to Australian researchers, tea tree essential oil can be just as effective for acne as benzoyl peroxide — and tea tree essential oil is much gentler. It’s antibacterial and antimicrobial, which can help fight break outs. It also gets deep into the pores, unclogging and disinfecting. And it can help reduce stress on the skin, which can be a big cause of acne.
To zap a zit fast, try applying some tea tree essential oil to the pimple using a cotton swab. You don’t need much — a few drops on the swab goes a long way. Leave for a few hours or overnight.
For long-term natural acne treatment, your teen can try:
- Washing his or her face with a tea tree essential oil formulated cleanser.
- Using a tea tree essential oil
- Removing makeup at the end of the day using tea tree essential oil.
- For acne on the body and not just the face, your teen could also try adding a few drops of tea tree essential oil to bathwater and soaking up the goodness. Or if they prefer a shower, put a couple drops in their body wash.
A zit doesn’t have to be a catastrophe. You can save money by cutting out expensive chemical products and going natural. Tea tree essential oil is a favourite of many acne sufferers for a reason!
