I got my tea tree oil in the mail yesterday and I think I might use it now instead of the benzoyl peroxide.
It may just be my imagination but I think the benzoyl peroxide is ageing my skin...??? Anyone else noticed this? I just feel like little itty bitty wrinkles I have started to look worse since I've been using it. Plus I hate that it bleaches my clothing and pillow cases if I'm not super careful.
Last night I soaked a cotton ball with water that I put one drop of tea tree oil on it and dabbed it all over my face. I had a couple blemishes that I could feel forming so I put a drop of the tea tree oil on a q-tip with one drop of water to dilute it just a bit and dabbed it on them. I think it pretty much stopped them in their tracks. They feel much smalled and less inflamed than yesterday.
Compared to using benzoyl peroxide my skin feels much more supple and not so old looking lol so for now I think I'll stick to tea tree oil
