Spot Treat With Tea Tree Oil

Tea tree oil is extracted from the leaves of the tree Melaleuca alternifolia, which is native to Australia.

Itís well-known for its ability to fight bacteria and reduce skin inflammation. Specifically, tea tree oil helps fight P. acnes and S. epidermidis, two types of bacteria that can cause pimples .

One study found that 5% tea tree oil gel was almost four times more effective at reducing acne lesions and almost six times more effective at reducing acne severity than a placebo .

In another study, a gel containing 5% tea tree oil was proven equally effective at reducing pimples as a lotion containing 5% benzoyl peroxide, a common acne medication .

The tea tree oil treatment also resulted in fewer adverse effects than benzoyl peroxide. These include dryness, irritation and burning.

Itís important to note that tea tree oil is very potent and can cause redness and irritation when applied directly to the skin. For this reason, it should be diluted with water or a carrier oil.

How to Use Tea Tree Oil for Acne

Combine one part tea tree oil with nine parts water.

Dip a cotton swab into the mixture and apply it directly to pimples.

Apply moisturizer, if desired.

Repeat this process one to two times per day, as needed.

Spot Treat With Other Essential Oils

In addition to tea tree oil, there are many other essential oils with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that can help clear up pimples quickly.

A large scientific review found that essential oils of cinnamon, rose, lavender and clove fight acne-causing bacteria, S. epidermidis and P. acnes .

Rosemary and lemongrass were also shown to effectively inhibit P. acnes .

One study compared the acne-fighting abilities of clove-basil oil, 10% benzoyl peroxide and a placebo. Both the 2% and 5% clove-basil oils were found to be more effective and faster at reducing pimples than benzoyl peroxide .

Another study found that a gel containing acetic acid, orange and sweet basil essential oils resulted in a 75% increase in the healing rate of pimples .

Like tea tree oil, these essential oils are very concentrated and can cause irritation if applied directly to the skin.
