(Health-NewsWire.Net, March 29, 2015 ) Westendorf, Tirol -- Acne is an affliction that has plagued mankind throughout the ages. People have tried lotions, potions and poultices, but the most effective have been facial masks that incorporate natural tea tree oil. For those who don't want to mix their own, the power of tea tree oil is available in an antifungal soap and body wash by Mountainbreeze Naturals.
Most people know tea tree oil for its antifungal abilities and the essential oil is a natural antibacterial and antiseptic. Egyptian Pharaohs suffered from acne and tried a bevy of blemish remedies ranging from honey to sulfur before discovering tea tree oil.
Facial masks and washes of tea tree oil proved most effective for acne and the use of each became a matter or preference. Research has shown tea tree oil is equally effective as a 5 percent solution of benzoyl peroxide, the most common remedy prescribed by dermatologists for acne.
A tea tree oil antifungal soap or mask has benefits that go beyond a treatment for acne. A variety of ingredients can be combined with tea tree oil to create a specialized facial mask that addresses multiple issues. It has a wealth of benefits and the components used will determine its effects.
The essential oil disinfects, kills bacteria, and penetrates blockages in pores that cause acne. It's a natural anti-inflammatory that soothes itchy and irritated skin. Mixed with the appropriate elements, tea tree oil is an organic moisturizer that doesn't exacerbate acne and addresses dry skin.
People produce less collagen as they age and that loss leads to the fine lines and wrinkles of aging. The botanical is a natural antioxidant that helps in the production of collagen for younger looking skin. It's a natural skin lightener that eases burns and can stimulate cell formation.
The Pharaohs knew the value of tea tree oil in facial masks for treating acne and its abilities remain undiminished. Effective facial masks can be whipped up in the kitchen, but for busy individuals that don't have the inclination the antifungal soap by Mountainbreeze Naturals offers all the benefits in a ready-to-use formula.
