Does Tea Tree Oil Remove Blackheads?

FYBC 2:1.jpeg

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. But what makes tea tree oil so special is its ability to deeply penetrate the skin and get under the clogging in our pores. That being said, it disinfects, dries out the blackhead and unclogs the pores.

Ingredients:
  • 1 tbsp fine sugar
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1-2 drops tea tree oil
  • A steamer
Treatment Time: 15 minutes.
Method:
  1. Steam your face for about 5-10 minutes.
  2. Combine and mix all the ingredients until coarse.
  3. Apply mixture to your face and massage gently in circular motions.
  4. Massage for a couple of minutes and then rinse your face with cool water.
Frequency: 2-3 times a week.
Why This Works

This tea tree scrub is a wonderful exfoliate which helps unclog pores and dry out pesky blackheads. Be sure you are using pure tea tree oil only. Any other variants may end up worsening the conditions of your blackheads.

4 Ways Cold Weather Can Benefit Your Skin

FYBC 1:16.jpg

Often times when we think winter, we think cracked hands, dry skin, basically all the unsavory skin conditions that the cold inflicts on us. But, since there are many more months of cold weather ahead, we have looked into some of the perks of freezing temperatures. Here are 5 ways that the cold actually helps your skin!

1. Helps Keep Pores Clog-free.

The great news is that the cold weather helps reduce and keeps pores less visible and refined. Acting as a sort of tonic or astringent. the cold weather slows down the secretion of sebum which reduces acne and keeps the shine away.

2. It Can Improve your Sleep.

Getting a full night’s rest is necessary for skin health and wellness, from reducing under eye circles to keeping your skin glowing. High heat during the nighttime is proven to disturb sleep whereas the cold supports the body’s natural temperature drop during sleep. Research shows the colder the temperature in the room, the better sleep you will have.

3. It Can Reduce Puffiness

The cold promotes blood circulation in both the body and the face, which reduces inflammation and swelling!


4. It Can Help With Anti-Aging.
The cold enhances your complexion and rejuvenates your skin. It also slows down the aging process—think of cryotherapy spa treatments or splashing cold water on your face in the morning—and keeps skin tight and vibrant.
