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

1

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.

    YEs I have been bullied. A lot. People who I think are my friends are back stabbers. They suddenly just like turn on me. I've had rumours spread about me and I was so sad. I hated being bullied. But the best thing to do if you are being bullied is to hold your head high and not cry. Because if you show a single tear that is what the bully wants And it will take you as an easy target and will bully you more and more and more and more. And bullies won't stop until you stand up to them.

    I would also talk to them and tell them how you feel. If they still say they are signing you up for the membership as a 13 year old and it scares you that much I would just tell them to leave you off the membership until you do turn 13.

    I think every house has some drama going on in it everyday. In my house my Mom is a divorced mother of 3 kids. My older sister is away at college but when she was here there were yelling matches between my mom and her about staying out too late and getting a speeding ticket. Also with my mom being the only one raising us she has to work full time leaving me to watch my little brother who is 10 after he gets home from school. There also can be some battles that go on there and my mom doesn't want to here it from me or him when she walks through the door after work. I just try to not make it all personal and chalk it up to the stress of everyday life.
