I didn’t, but I thankfully had the lovely team at Thursday Plantation give me a heads up (and a few goodies to share with you), for National Acne Awareness Month!
I only deal with hormonal breakouts, but I’m extremely close with my sister who deals with acne. We spend hours reading ingredient lists, researching products, and despite having access to an incredible amount of products, it’s been a struggle finding the right ones for her face. But, what I’ve always known is that tea tree oil is one of the best skincare ingredients out there, so let’s talk about Thursday Plantation’s Tea Tree line.
Thursday Plantation 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree oil is one of the best skincare grade antiseptics out there, meaning it works to prevent the growth of any micro-organisms—which can be the cause of your breakouts! The 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil is sourced and made in Australia, free of synthetics and fillers. I like to have this around when I end up with an angry red spot that needs some cleansing. Just apply a bit on a Q-Tip and spot treat your acne!
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Medicated Gel
If you prefer actual acne spot treatments (as opposed to just oil), Thursday Plantation’s Tea Tree Medicated Gel is free from benzyl peroxide, so it will treat your pimples without drying out your skin. Nothing I hate more than over-using acne spot cream and then spend a week dealing with the dry flaky aftermath!
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Foam Face Wash
A great way to include tea tree in your routine is to use the Tea Tree Foam Face Wash. The formula will target pimple-causing bacteria, while removing excessive sebum. And, the added chamomile will soothe any redness.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Toner
Tea tree and witch hazel is a heavenly combination for those dealing with acne. The toner harnesses the antiseptic power of tea tree and the purifying abilities of witch hazel, while soothes with aloe vera and lavender. Seriously, this stuff is amazing!
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Cream
If you’re looking to incorporate tea tree into your daily routine, Thursday Plantation’s face cream is perfect. The key ingredients include Rosehip and Vitamin E to nourish your skin while the tea tree does its thing. It’s super lightweight and perfect for summer!
You can find all of these at: Walmart, Loblaws, Superstore, Rexal, Well.ca and Natural Health Food Stores
