how to use tea tree oil for acne

1. Combine 1 to 2 drops of tea tree oil with 12 drops of a carrier oil. However, be careful using any additional oils on your face. Any type of oil product has the potential to worsen acne. 2. Before applying diluted tea tree oil to your face, do a small patch test on the inside of your elbow. Signs of skin sensitivity or an allergic reaction include itchiness, redness, swelling, and burning. 3. Before applying the oil, wash your face with a gentle cleanser for acne-prone skin, and pat it dry. 4. Gently apply diluted tea tree oil by dabbing it on your blemishes with a cotton round or pad. 5. Allow to dry. Follow up with your usual moisturizer. 6. Repeat morning and night.
