Blackheads. We almost never know what to do with them. Some sources say squeeze or scrub them, while others don’t. In all actuality, getting rid of blackheads is very simple as long as you know what to do and what to use. The magical fix to blackheads requires one product only, tea tree oil.
Why Does Tea Tree Oil Help Remove Blackheads?
Tea tree oil is great for treating other forms of acne because it contains antibacterial properties, is an excellent disinfectant and is soothing.
