Tea tree Essential oil to get rid of acne

There is such a large number of acne fighting cosmetic product out there, yet I prefer natural choices. Safe to use for your skin and body and pretty much as effective,that it really can’t go wrong.

One of my all time favourite to-go acne curing product is Tea Tree Oil. I’ve been using it for a long time and it really works well.

Extracted from from Australia’s tea trees, this oil contains antibacterial, antifungal and germ-free properties making it a great product to fight many skin problems like , bug bites, infections, athlete’s foot and of course, acne.

Tree oil is extracted by steam refining the leaves of the tea tree , which is local to Australia. Using oil against skin problems caused by an excess of oil may seem quite in-appropriate, but according to certain reserched its the best cure. Tree oil is best for fighting acne, but try it somewhere else on your body before yoou apply them on face, because some people have reported skin irritaion and itchiness after using Tea Tree Oil.

Here are the best three methods I use to fight acne, usinng Tea Tree oil.

Spot Treatment

I really hate those single spot pimples that destroy a generally wonderful appearance. As opposed to give your face a full facial, I select this convenient spot treatment.

All you need is some tea tree oil and aloe vera gel. Combine 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil with 9 teaspoons of aloe vera gel. Blend it and keep it in a container. Many people are keeping this container with them, and use it on their spot pimples

I use to apply a tiny amount of cream on the affected area and keep it on for 10-15minutes, this will kill the pimple causing bacteria and allow the pore to heal naturally.

The acne medicine

There’s nothing as remarkable as a decent medicine to overcome your skin problems. It makes your skin feel crisp, clean and keeps it fresh.

To make acne fighting medicinal spray, combine 1 portion of tea tree oil to 9 portions of water in a spray bottle. Shake it well, and then spray it on your face, neck or any body part which is affected by acne.

Like the spot treatment, this blend clears pores by killing the skin acne causing bacteria. It also help to overcome severe inflammation.

The Tea tree Face Mask

If you have severe acne problems, and of there is a severe breakout then tea tree face mask is for you.

To prepare the mask you need, 2 tablespoons of green clay powder, 4 drops of tea tree oil and enough water to transform this into a paste form. Blend this mixture together in a small bowl until it’s smooth. Using clean fingers, apply everywhere all over and neck and let it sit for 20 minutes. The paste will get to be dry in 20 minutes, but don’t wash it off! stay patient. You need to give it time to get absorbed into your skin.

After 30-45 minutes’ flush it off with water and pat dry. This paste can also be used for spot treatment, so don’t throw away the excess, keep it safe in an airtight container. It might come in handy.

If you are using any of the above three methods to cure your acne problem, the result may start appearing in a week. Other than cherishing your skin break-out and pimple free life, your skin will be also scented by the fresh oil fragrance in the tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil may be bit hard to find, but it’s the best natural cure out there if are facing acne problem. Don’t you think it’s worth a try? Don’t you think going all natural is the best way to overcome these skin problems. The above mentioned methods are quite easy, I always use them to get rid of my pimple problem, and I think you should give it a try too.

Uses of tomato and Sunflower seed on skin

Tomatoes are among most the widely available fruit in the market, and it’s one of my favourites. But, have you ever wondered, does tomato have any other use rather than cooking? Many of you might not know but tomato seeds have many skin benefits, so does sunflower seed has, but sunflower seeds are not as widely available as the tomato seeds. So getting them would be quite tough! still, you can visit your nearest grocery store and check whether if it’s available there are not

You should definitely give a try on sunflower seeds, I use it frequently on my skin and they work wonders. Sunflower seed is rich in linoleic acid, has very absorption properties and is rich in sunflower oil. I mostly use crushed dry sunflower seed has a natural moisturiser, the oil in the seed has very high anti-microbial property and applying them gives you a very shiny skin. Tomato seeds cannot be used like sunflower seeds but they do have lots of benefits on your skin.

Benefits of tomato seed on skin

Used as skin care product

I use tomato seeds has my natural skin care product. Tomato seeds have very nutritious content and they are high in lycopene content which is very good for your skin. You can use blended tomato seed and use them as face cream, lip balms and aftershaves. I apply the tomato seed blend twice or thrice a week, to make use of its anti-wrinkle property.

Natural sunscreen

Dried tomato seed oil is a wonderful natural sunscreen agent. I always prefer to use tomato sunscreen than those chemical ones if the day is not too hot and sun is not very bright.

Anti-Aging agent

Tomato seeds are rich in vitamin A, vitamin B, folate, thiamine, all these agents have high anti-wrinkling property. With confidence, I can say, tomato seeds are by far the best anti-aging natural skin product. I also use the paste to apply it under the eye, it keeps the eye refreshing and removes the bagginess under your eyes.

Like the tomato seeds, sunflower seeds also work well on your skin. Here are the few:

Natural Moisturiser

Sunflower seed oil is a wonderful moisturising agent. The oil can be extracted from dry sunflower seeds. I always use the oil on my skin, it also leaves a beautiful fresh fragrance on the skin. But careful while using it, you don’t want to apply too much oil on the skin and feel yourself completely uncomfortable and greasy. The oil has many antimicrobial properties too, You should definitely incorporate this as your daily skin care product.

Anti-wrinkling agent

Similar to tomato seeds, sunflower seeds can also be used as an anti-wrinkling paste. You can blend sunflower seeds, with some water and make into a paste. I usually blend this paste along with the tomato seed paste to make a perfect wrinkle-free cream. The paste may feel a bit gooey and smelly, but never mind, its way better than those chemical cosmetics that may have side effects in the long run.

Cancer preventing agent

Oil from Sunflower is great cancer preventing agents. The oil is rich in vitamin E, which are known to prevent cancer. Research in a major university in the USA, found that Sunflower seeds help in reducing collagen and elastin in the skin which helps in removing the fine lines and wrinkles, it also leaves a protective layer around the skin, protecting you from extra bodies. The research recommends incorporating the oil in your daily life.

Retains water content on your skin

When the day gets rough and I’m totally stressed out, my skin get dry and tough. It feels dirty and polluted. To charge my skin up, and bring it back I use sunflower seed, lemon and almond oil paste. sunflower seeds are blended together with a squeeze of lemon and a tablespoon of almond oil. Apply this mixture on your face and leave it there for 15minutes. It works like a magic, and brings back all the freshness and puffiness of the face.

Tomato seeds and sunflower seeds are well known for their nutritional property. These products are easily available and can be readily used. They work wonders on your skin and I personally recommend to use them daily. Well, come on! it’s not tough to blend few seeds together. Is it?
