Blackheads cures with teat tree oil

Blackheads occur when the skin is unclean, pores are clogged and dead skin begins to accumulate. Blackheads are a medically considered a variety of acne. Tea tree oil is best known for its anti-fungal and antiseptic properties. It is also very effective when applied topically to get rid of infections and skin problems. Sometimes blackheads can grow large and develop pus and infections under the surface of the skin. Only in extreme cases of blackhead outbreak like these should you resort to a measure as strong as tea tree oil. It will certainly help you, but if applied topically to milder problems, it may also burn your skin.

There are other more effective ways of dealing with blackheads that occur randomly. The best way to start is exfoliating regularly. Prepare a paste-like mix of olive oil and sugar. Rub this gently all over your dampened skin till the sugar melts. This will scrub off dead skin. You can use a mild soap to wash the residues. For excessively oily skin, use a loofah and soap with a chamomile and tea base and follow the same procedure. You should also cut down on your general oil consumption, which will automatically help in clearing out your skin. Try not to scratch or tweeze out blackheads as much as possible, as this procedure may leave scars if not done correctly.
