3. Apply a small amount of diluted tea tree oil to the affected areas of the skin using a cotton swab or a clean fingertip.
4. Avoid applying undiluted tea tree oil directly to the skin, as it can cause redness, dryness, and irritation.
5. Tea tree oil can be used as a spot treatment for acne breakouts, but it should not be used all over the face as it may dry out the skin.
6. Perform a patch test on a small area of skin before using tea tree oil on your face to make sure you do not have an adverse reaction.
7. Use tea tree oil as part of your skincare routine, but do not rely solely on it for acne treatment – combine it with a balanced skincare regimen for best results.
8. If you have sensitive skin or are pregnant or nursing, consult with a dermatologist or healthcare professional before using tea tree oil for acne.
