A Perfectly Balanced Tea Tree Oil Cream.
Do you ever feel like you just can’t get your skin under control? You try product after product to keep it clean and blemish free, only to end up with dry, flaky skin (and still have acne)?
Many of us have been there, and it gets frustrating…quick.
Luckily, there is something that can help. A new moisturizer that will not only work to keep your face clean and balanced, but hydrated as well.
It’s time to take a look at our new Tea Tree Cream!
Using Tea Tree Oil for Your Skin
When you’re working on healing and soothing your skin it needs the right environment. Without it, you can wind up going around in circles or even making things worse.
When I was dealing with acne I spent a lot of money to end up apathetic, with dry and irritated skin. This was because many of the cleansers on the market are just too harsh on the skin. Couple that with lotions and creams that don’t do their job, your skin isn’t in a position to improve.
Let’s look at what the ideal conditions would be to really clear up our skin:
1. Keep It Balanced
When your skin is too oily or too dry it is a symptom and a cause of trouble. Like all organic matter, skin has a pH level. When this gets thrown off by diet, hormones, toxins, and other things it can become too acidic or too alkaline.
When acidity gets too high you are left with overly oily skin. When it becomes too alkaline you get dry, cracked skin. This imbalance can lead to an over growth of bacteria or yeast, inflamed skin, breakouts, and more.
Your skin needs a balanced 5.5 pH.
2. Keep It Clean
If you are having trouble with acne, dermatitis, or eczema, keeping your skin as clean as possible is a must. This breaks down into three ways:
- Oily skin. Your skin produces an oil called sebum. It lubricates the hair and skin. If too much sebum builds up bacteria and/or yeast is allowed to get out of hand. To much bacteria makes you prone to acne, too much yeast leads to different kinds of dermatitis.
- Clogged Pores. Build-up on the skin can cause your pores to clog, leading to pimples, blackheads, and backed up sebum. This must be prevented or it will only lead to more skin problems. It also leaves your skin looking rough.
- Flaky skin. Acne, dermatitis, and dry skin all cause the skin to flake. These flakes are pieces of dead skin that need to be exfoliated to keep your skin smooth and your pores open.
3. Help it Heal
Providing your skin with the right vitamins, minerals and other nutrients can greatly increase how fast it can heal. Your body will of course naturally heal itself, but there are natural ingredients that are proven to speed up the healing process.
When we want to look our best, why not take all the help we can get?
4. Prevent Irritation
Diet, pollution, toxins, and chemicals can all have negative effects on the skin. If you are using skin care products full of harmful ingredients you aren’t going to get very far. All they do is cause irritation and make things worse!
Sticking to plant-based products will help you avoid as much irritation as possible.
Luckily for us, tea tree oil has been shown to help each of these key points. We mixed it with other powerful ingredients to make a safe, effective cream.
Let’s look at each ingredient and see how they can help:
Each ingredient listed below is natural, safe, and proven to work. Take a look at each to find out how they can help us reach the four requirements to clear skin:
Tea Tree Oil
With over 400 uses it’s no surprise tea tree can do a lot for your skin. We based a cream around it because it is a proven treatment for acne.
It helps prevent breakouts by working as a natural antimicrobial. This means tea tree oil keeps the skin clean of bacteria, one of the causes of acne. It also reduces the inflammation caused by pimples, helping fade their appearance quickly.
Using it in cream or lotion will help protect your skin all day long!
Coconut oil is a great ingredient for acne because it contains lauric acid, a fatty acid that treats viral and bacterial infections.
Coconuts are high in vitamin E, which speeds up healing and smooths out the skin. This makes it a safe and effective moisturizer that helps keep your skin pH balanced.
These qualities make coconut oil a powerful tool in healing and preventing acne.
Aloe vera is famous for its ability to speed healing. Regular application will make sure your skin has the wide array of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids it needs to repair quickly.
Another great benefit is the fact that it reduces pain and irritation, helping calm irritated skin.
Zinc may be a common mineral, but it’s skin benefits are impressive. Studies show it reduces bacterial skin infections, and has anti-inflammatory properties that can help with acne, rosacea, and eczema. It is particularly good at fighting acne, oily prone skin because it directly reduces sebum production.
If all that wasn’t enough, research has shown it boosts collagen production which is needed to build new skin. It improved healing in just 48 hours!
This carbohydrate comes from the Western Larch Tree. It has a unique way of exfoliating the skin; it helps new skin cells push towards the surface forcing the old ones to fall off. Pretty impressive!
It also tightens the skin, reduces water loss, and fades fine lines.
This flower has been around for centuries helping many aspects of heath. It’s most known for it’s ability to improve mood and fight depression, but we use it for other qualities.
Research shows that is not only a strong anti-inflammatory, but is also anti-microbial. That means St. John’s Wort can help keep damaged skin clean whiling soothing and firming it.
Burdock root has been proven to directly treat acne, so it’s a no brainer why we included. Studies show it improves blood circulation to the skin, thus speeding healing.
It also improves skin quality and texture, helping you look your best. As an added bonus it reduces wrinkles!
Pomegranate Seed Oil
The seeds from this colorful fruit contain a unique type of fatty acid that is a powerful anti-inflammatory, protecting against free radicals.
These oils have shown to improving healing. In fact, it’s so strong it can heal DNA damage caused by sun light and has even been shown to prevent cancer.
It will work hard to help improve your skin texture and keep it healthy.
You may not have heard of this herb, but you’ve probably know of the popular health supplement berberine. Berberine has been found to be antimicrobial, anti-tumor, and anti-inflammatory, and this stuff is loaded with it!
Goldenseal can be used to treat many kinds of disease like acne, eczema, rashes and more. It has even shown to kill cancer and inhibit the growth of new cancer cells!
This common flower has a special power: because it is alkaline it treats skin diseases caused by fungus and microbes. This includes things like acne, itch, eczema, athlete’s foot, and more. It turns oily skin into balanced skin!
It also contains antioxidants that work to prevent wrinkles, while toning and firming skin.
White Willow Extract
This extract has been used for thousands of years as a pain killer and anti-inflammatory. Studies show it is naturally antiseptic (helping keep your skin clean of disease-causing organisms) and boosts your immune system.
It is also a natural source of salicylic acid which is an exfoliator commonly used to treat acne.
As you can see, each of the plant-based ingredients used in our tea tree cream will give your skin everything it needs to recovery. It will work for hours to keep skin balanced, clean, healthy, and irritation free.
We designed it to work together with our Tea Tree Oil Cleanser, offering you a great one-two punch! You can use the cleanser to wash away the bulk of build-up and oils, and the cream to keep it that way.
If you are dealing with oily, acne prone skin, rosacea, or other skin conditions then give tea tree oil a try. You’ll be surprised what the right ingredients can do for you!
