Tea Tree oil can be quite harsh on the skin, are using it diluted?

 

I'm not diluting it, but since I'm applying Rose Hip Seed oil 15 minutes after the TT oil has soaked in, my skin's not as irritated from it as it normally would be. If I weren't using the RHS oil, I either would be diluting the TT oil or using it less frequently than twice daily.

I would say be use stuff that is gentle and let your skin naturally heal with decent diet. Purechimp super cleanser is worth a try.

 

I'm in the States and would rather not deal with the hassle of such long-distance shipping.

 

Currently, I'm applying Tea Tree oil, then Rose Hip Seed oil, and, finally, Sodium-Sulfacetamide lotion. (I allow at least 15 minutes between the application of each one, to let it be absorbed before the next application.) I also am taking Vitamin C to hopefully help ease the inflammation--well, it's already quite inflamed and fully raised to the surface of my skin; so I guess I'm hope the Vit. C will ease any potential damage.

Well I can't have citrus unless I want to break out in cysts.

 

I can't have citrus, either, but not due to acne flareups. I also seem to be having troubles--complete energy sap--from gluten and sugar. I'm down to eating practically nothing, it seems. Ugh.

Whether or not hormones have been given to the animals, there are hormones in milk that aren't good for adults or acne.  In any country. 

 

Still, it irks me that some people can enjoy the occasional dairy-based treat, and people like me break out from it in just about any form.

And The growth hormones given to the animals are not the only hormones to be concerned about in dairy.  It both contains and stimulates growth hormones intended to make babies grow.  And those hormones have negative affects on bodies that are no longer growing. Including negatively affecting several factors involved in acne formation.

 

The fact that growth hormones and GMOs are allowed in our food, but banned in that of other countries, says a lot--and nothing good--about most politicians and corporations in the U.S.
