Tea Tree Oil For Acne treatment - good or bad?

Is it possible to cure Acne with Tea Tree Oil? Melaleuca alternifolia or "tea tree" is a  tree native of Australia, the leaves are the portion of the plant used medicinally.  
This great oil contains anti-bacterial agents that  kill zit-causing bacteria. Recent studies compared a 5% percent tea tree oil product to a 5% percent benzoyl peroxide product and the two of them were discovered to work equally well.
Some forms of acne are caused by certain bacteria that can build up in your pores. If used properly, This antiseptic oil can reduce the amount of acne breakouts a person has, but it will never cure it completely: all that you have to do is apply one drop two to three times per day to all areas of your skin that is affected  by this condition or has pimples and it will begin to kill the bacteria.

Tea tree oil 
How good is organic tea tree oil for acne? Since an undiluted form of this oil is hazardous, is important to decide what forms of it should be used in order to attain the best result. You can make your own undiluted solution by using 95% of water and  5% of pure tea tree oil mixed properly. If you have sensitive skin, then a mix of this essential oil and aloe vera would respond very well. Get straight tea tree oil and dilute it in pure aloe vera gel. Add only a drop or two to start with per ounce of aloe.
There are  lots of new topical  pure tea tree oil acne products worth buying. Have a look at the skin care aisle of the health food store. Some companies have even introduced a new topical gel that also has other herbal antiseptics, such as witch hazel, lavender and aloe vera.
It is highly recommended for teenagers, those with oily skin or blemishes.
It is recommendable to avoid sun after applying this type of oil to your face. It tends to have a drying and irritating effect when the skin is exposed to sun.
If you are looking for an effective but natural treatment method for taking care of you acne problems and you don't like chemicals in your skin,  then buy tea tree oil, your skin will thank you and glow!
Please remember: This oil is for external use only. If your condition persists or worsens, seek immediate medical attention!
I highly recommend anyone  to try TTO before running out to a dermatologist: is very cheap so there is nothing really to lose, as long as you use it accordingly. If interested in a non-pharmacological approach to acne, topical Tea tree may be one of the best choices for you, especially if you use it in conjunction with a nice diet.
There are even commercial benzoyl peroxide products fortified with TTO to get the benefits of both ingredients.
