5 Benefits of Tea Tree in Korean Skincare
Korean skincare is known for its use of natural, innovative ingredients. Last time we covered green tea, and this time it's all about tea tree. Tea tree is a popular oil used to treat conditions affecting the nails, skin, and hair. It has so many benefits for the body, and today we will be talking about 5 of them.
1. Tea Tree is an Anti-Inflammatory
Similarly to green tea, tea tree is an anti-inflammatory, which means it helps reduce swelling and even redness and irritation.
2. Tea Tree Treats Acne
Tea tree is not only an anti-inflammatory, but it is also antimicrobial which makes it a top choice in products made to treat acne. You'll often find it in combination with Centella Asiatica, another great natural acne treatment. Its effectiveness in reducing redness, swelling, irritation, and even the appearance of acne scarring definitely has us saying "yes" to it in our skincare.
3. Tea Tree Combats Oily Skin
Got oily skin? Want to combat that extra oil? Try tea tree. It has antiseptic properties which are thought to be what controls that excess oil.
4. Tea Tree Soothes Dry Skin
So... you're saying tea tree can treat both oily AND dry skin? How? Well, it doesn't necessarily treat dry skin, but it DOES relieve itchiness and irritation caused by dryness.
5. Tea Tree Is Good for Your Hair, Too!
Tea tree removes chemicals and dead skin cells from the scalp which can help with dandruff. It can also help your hair stay healthy and moisturized, which in turn promotes hair growth.
