In my recent Morning Skincare Routine video, I mentioned that I use Lush’s Tea Tree Water before moisturising to make sure my skin is extra clean for the day ahead. The main ingredient is of course, tea tree oil, which is famous for its antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial properties which help to neutralise the bacteria that can cause spots. Tea tree oil has a long history of medicinal use. The practice of applying tea tree oil comes from Australia, where Aborigines have been using it as an antiseptic to treat cuts and burns for thousands of years.
It’s very easy to make your own tea tree water to use as a toner, antibacterial spray, dandruff treatment, insect repellant and decongestant – watch this for more ideas! Tati from GlamLifeGuru filmed this great little tutorial to show you how it’s done:
Do you have any tips for using tea tree in your beauty routine?
