Post Putting pure tea tree oil on each zit

I was just wondering how beneficial it is to put 100% Pure Tea Tree oil on each zit with a cotton wool ball. Has anyone done it?

I've tried it, but unfourtunately it didn't work for me. I've heard it heals popped blemish's real quick, but it won't help newly formed ones (just makes them more red). It wouldn't hurt to give it a try, though. You never know, it might work for you. Do it before bed, though, because it'l make them extra red. Good luck!

Purplebetta'r right about the effects tt oil has on an already formed pimple. It makes it worse. Its great to kill bacteria and if you've got a sense that one is about to form. Itys great during the drying up period. Whats good but maybe hard to find..Nixoderm. It comes in a very small round tin container (Johnson Wax Nigeria, ltd).

i remember buying a small container of tea tree oil 6,7 years ago , gave it about a month try and the only thing i have to say about tea tree oil is that it's only good if you use it for aromatherapy hehe and maybe papercuts . if you want an effective anti-imflammatory product, why don't you try benzoyl peroxide ? start with lowest strength if your skin is ultra sensitive . by far, its the most effective otc topic antibiotic out there .
