I also used tea tree oil for my acne. It has huge disinfecting and soothing properties. Unlike other acne treatments, tea tree oil will not strip your skin of its natural oils and cause further damage. I simply applied a few drops of tea tree oil on a cotton swab and gently dabbed it directly on my acne. It made the redness and swelling decrease. Depending on how made my acne was at the time, I would usually did this at least a couple times a day.
