When it comes to face creams, everyone prefers going for the readymade options but the thing is that you can also make your own face cream at home, without spending much. One of the most used ingredients in face creams today would be tea tree, which is known one of the most popular choices for those with oily or acne prone skin.
The thing is that apart from this, even people with regular skin types choose tea tree based products because it prevents skin related problems.Again the antibacterial properties of the tea tree are immense and it is also a very versatile product. So you can combine it with a range of other herbs and products to create face creams that can be used all year round or even seasonally!
Aloe And Tea Tree Oil Cream Gel
Now this one is perhaps one of the easiest creams that you can make. It is completely no fuss and is actually more like a gel based cream. What is great about this product is that it doubles as a face mask also and you can wash it off. What you need to do is scoop the gel of fresh aloe vera and then mix it with a few drops of the tea tree oil.
This should be mixed well and then applied generously all over the face and neck. Now if you are using just these two ingredients, you don’t need to wash off the face, but if you want to use it as a mask, then add some honey to it. Let it stay for 20 minutes and then wash it off.
Usage And Benefit
This gel can be stored in the refrigerator for a couple of months or even at regular room temperature for a good one week. If used without honey, it works as a great summer cream, keeping pollution and skin related problems at bay. If using it with honey, it can be used all year round as it hydrates the skin, without being too greasy.
Nourishing Dry Skin Tea Tree Cream
Now tea tree is a wonder ingredient that helps you stay hydrated and nourished even in the winters. The benefit of using this ingredient in the winter is that you can combat bacteria related skin problems even in the colder season.
What You Will Need
For making this cream, you will basically need about ½ a cup olive or even almond oil. To this you need to add about ¼ cup of beeswax to get that creamy and rich texture, which is very much suggested in the colder season. Add about 10 drop of tea tree oil to the same. If you want added fragrance then you can also add some lavender oil.
How To Make
Combine all of the above ingredients in a glass jar, which should have been sterilized. Remember that if you are using a jar in which food was kept, then you need to make sure that it is cleaned well with soap and water. Now take a medium sized sauce pan and add some water to it.
The water should be about a couple of inches above so that you can melt the ingredients and mix them well, thus using the pan as a double boiler. Let the water heat up and melt the wax and other ingredients. But avoid overheating. Cool and store it like a regular lotion. This should last you at least a couple of months at room temperature and more in the refrigerator.
Tea Tree Cream For Normal Skin
This is a good cream that works very well for normal skin and even proves to be very good in the seasonal changes.
For making this cream you need about 3 big spoons of cold-pressed safflower oil along with equal quantities of distilled water. To this add about 2 teaspoons of grated beeswax and a small spoon of honey and tea tree oil.
How To Make
Again the process of making this cream involves heating over a double boiler. As all of the ingredients melt together, you need to balance the heat. Use a clean jar and store the same in the refrigerator.
Anti Wrinkle Tea Tree Cream
This one may not be stored for a very long time as it contains a lot of natural ingredients, but it sure works in providing great results for the face. You can keep it in the refrigerator for a few days but avoid keeping it room temperature.
How To Make
You need to combine natural ingredients, which include one spoon each of apple juice, lemon juice, lime, rosemary extracts, tea tree oil and pear juice. To this add a couple of spoons of buttermilk along with grape juice. 2 egg whites also need to be added. This again, doubles as a mask too. Blend all ingredients together and then apply on face. Wash it off once it is dry.
Green Tea And Tea Tree Oil Cream
This is a good cream for those who love the antioxidant properties of green tea and the natural antibacterial properties of tea tree oil. Basically you can store this cream for much longer and it is a complete cream that prevents wrinkles, acne and other skin related issues too.
For making this cream you need about ¼ cup of hazelnut oil along with 2 spoons of emulsifying wax. To this add ½ cup of green tea leaves or bags. Add one spoon of tea tree oil and aloe vera gel each. Then throw in about 4 capsules of any vitamin E supplement. Baking soda may be added, about a spoon, for helping the cream last longer.
How To Make
Brew the green tea in ½ a cup of water and take the extracts out. Do not add the capsules. Then mix all of the ingredients together and heat it over a double boiler. Finally when the ingredients cool down, add the capsule extracts and mix it well. Use generously over the face and neck. There is no need to wash the same off.
