Skin and hair problems tend to worsen during the cold, with dull, dry and flaky skin making a frequent appearance. Chilly weather, combined with central heating has a drying effect, tightening the skin pores and reducing circulation, thus resulting in early onset of wrinkles. Tea tree oil, with its rustic, woody notes, aids in invigorating the skin from within, by providing ample hydration and nutrition. With its antioxidant powers, it also gets rid of acne and blemishes, and ensures you have clear, healthy skin. Dry weather also means flaky scalp and dandruff. Tea tree oil is an excellent remedy for that as well. This oil can be diffused to reap its aromatic benefits or used in a carrier oil like Argan Oil for topical application.
