BENEFITS OF TEA TREE FOR SKIN
THIS PURIFYING PLANT WORKS IN MANY WAYS, AND IT’S ESPECIALLY GOOD FOR THOSE WITH OILY, BLEMISH-PRONE SKIN.
We understand blemishes can get under your skin in more ways than one. And though we’re all about embracing imperfections, we also want you to feel in control of your skin. If you often find yourself battling with blemishes or struggling with oily skin, turn to tea tree – a powerful yet natural ingredient that helps skin feel cleansed, purified and mattified. Discover how this small but mighty plant can help oily, blemish-prone skin.
WHAT IS TEA TREE?
Tea tree is a small plant that grows in tropical climates. The leafy plant is typically harvested for its oil which is known for its cleansing and purifying properties – hence why it’s so popular in skincare, especially for those with oily, blemish-prone skin. Not only does it help to reduce the appearance of blemishes, it works with your skin to help keep them at bay too.
What’s so special about our tea tree? We source our Community Fair Trade tea tree from a number of farms and independent farmers in rural Kenya. They steam-distil the tea tree leaves within 12 hours of harvesting to ensure our Tea Tree Oil is at its most pure and potent.
And since tea tree has natural purifying properties, the crops don’t need chemicals to fend off pests.
Our trade helps provide farmers working within our producer group with a steady income in an area where employment opportunities are low. It’s how we make sure we source the best quality ingredients while having a positive impact on people and the planet.
HELPS REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF BLEMISHES
Blemishes can be caused by a number of things – hormones, air quality, dehydration – and are formed when sebum builds up inside your pores. Our Tea Tree Oil helps cleanse your pores and helps blemishes appear smaller over time.
HELPS TO MINIMISE THE APPEARANCE OF PORES
Pores are the tiny openings in our skin that release oil and allow our skin to breathe. Those with oilier skin types are likely to have larger pores as they are producing more sebum. Our Tea Tree Oil helps to purify your pores and minimise their appearance for a more refined look.
HELPS PREVENT PORES FROM FEELING CLOGGED
It can be hard finding the right products to put on blemish-prone skin, since the last thing you want to do it clog your pores further. Thankfully, our Tea Tree Oil helps prevent your pores from feeling clogged, leaving you with more clearer looking skin.
FEELS WEIGHTLESS ON THE SKIN
Our Tea Tree Oil is featherlight on your skin, meaning your skin is never left feeling oily or covered in product. Instead, it’s light and so refreshing you can smell it. The only thing you can feel is the power of our Tea Tree Oil working on your skin.
BEST ROUTINE FOR BLEMISH-PRONE AND OILY SKIN
Suffering from blemishes can be difficult. So how do you take control of your skin before blemishes strike? Our 4-step daily Tea Tree routine has your back and is here to help purify your skin, so that you can feel more confident and in control.
Dampen your face with warm water. Squeeze some of our refreshing Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash onto the palm of your hand and massage into your face, moving in circular upward motions until the product has lathered. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry.
Follow up with our Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner. Apply a few drops to a cotton pad and sweep across your full face.
Keep skin feeling fresher with our Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. Apply a few drops of the serum onto your fingertips and massage all over your face, repeat morning and night.
Just because skin is oily, doesn’t mean it’s not dehydrated. Squeeze a small amount of our Tea Tree In-Control Hydrator onto your fingertips and massage gently into your skin.
