Re: Essential Oils for Acne? Tea Tree Oil is just one of the many...

I personally like the smell of Tea Tree oil and found that a cleanser with Tea Tree oil stopped me breaking out for a while. But then my skin got used to it and the acne soon came back. But maybe that's because I have quite severe acne. If yours isn't so severe then it might help in the longer term. It does have a drying effect and can sting wounds so be careful how much you use
