Lookin' for some products to help keep your skin clear but you're not into all those icky creams and messy cover ups? Check out Tea Tree Oil that comes from Australia - a natural solution to regular break-outs!

So you're lookin' for something to help keep your skin clear but you're not into all those icky creams and messy cover ups? There's a natural solution that can end or curb the regular teen break-outs - tea tree oil.

Tea tree oil comes from the tea tree - duh! The tree only grows in Northern New South Wales and Australia. The oil is found in the cells of the leaves. Aboriginals have been using the oil for thousands of years and there are stories of a "magical lagoon" where tea tree leaves have fallen and collected. Nowadays, there isn't a household in Australia that doesn't have tea tree oil. It can help with everything from bad breath to acne to athlete's foot.

Tea Tree Tidbits

1 Tea Tree oil is a great anti-bacterial which kills a broad spectrum of bacteria and a range of stubborn fungi like athlete's foot.
1 It's totally safe for all skin types (dry, sensitive, oily, etc.) and does not mess with normal cell growth and rejuvenation.
1 Tea tree oil is a powerful organic solvent and will actually dissolve the lumps of white blood cells which make pus (in other words - less nasty whiteheads.)

Tea Tree Oil Remedies


Blemishes (Acne)

Dab pure tea tree oil on blemishes three times per day, or add three to six drops of pure tea tree oil to warm water and rinse affected area. Apply tea tree antiseptic cream for day-time treatment. Some suggested products - Body Shop has a killer line of tea tree stuff that zaps zits. Try their antiseptic, their facial scrub and their dab-on gel.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says
