Make a solution with 1 part tea tree oil and 9 parts of water. Apply it with a cotton ball but please make sure you dab it and not rub it harshly on your pimples. Tea tree oil is known to fight bacteria and reduce inflammation but please keep in mind it is potent so needs to be diluted properly. You will see the results in a few months so continue this at least 1-2 times a day. Though it takes a bit of time before you can see any improvement, tea tree oil does not cause dryness, irritation or burning like few other acne products. Consult a dermatologist and he/she will guide you on the best treatment for your condition.
