Using beard oil on your facial hair is one of the best ways to keep your beard moisturized and healthy.
However, some people have sensitive skin and using a standard beard oil might cause them to break out.
This is where Zeus Beard’s Natural Tea Tree Beard Oil comes into play. This version of our beard oil caters to those that have sensitive, acne-prone skin.
In this blog post, we’ll be going over what tea tree oil is and how it can help you if you’re experiencing acne or skin irritation underneath your beard.
What is Tea Tree Oil?
Tea tree oil comes from, well, the leaves of tea trees. These aren’t the tea leaves you drink, but rather the leaves of Melaleuca alternifolia, a species of trees from the eastern Australian states of Queensland and New South Wales, according to Healthline.
This essential oil has historically been used as a traditional medicine by Aborigines to address coughs, colds and wounds.
That’s because tea tree oil contains terpinen-4-ol, which has been found to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi, according to Healthline.
That compound has also been found to increase white blood cell activity to help fight foreign germs in the body.
In addition to killing bacteria, researchers have found that tea tree oil may help reduce skin inflammation caused by allergens or insect bites.
So Why Should I Use Beard Oil with Tea Tree Oil?
As mentioned above, tea tree oil can help with acne due to its ability to kill bacteria on your face and beard.
On top of that, tea tree oil may reduce skin inflammation caused by certain allergens or insect bites.
Our natural tea tree beard oil has the same reliable ingredients that our standard beard oil contains — safflower seed oil to soften the hair and to prevent skin irritation, argan seed oil to restore your beard’s natural shine and to moisturize the hairs, grape seed oil to soothe acne and skin irritation and vitamin E to promote blood circulation and hair growth.
Add tea tree oil into that mix and now you have a beard oil formulated for those with sensitive skin.
But before you go and douse yourself in our natural tea tree beard oil, please test out the product on a small spot on your skin.
Ironically, some people that have sensitive skin may be sensitive to tea tree oil, so it’s important to see if this beard oil causes any skin irritation for you before fully incorporating it into your beard care routine.
How Do I Use Beard Oil with Tea Tree Oil on My Facial Hair?
Use our natural tea tree beard oil the same way you would use a standard beard oil.
Pat dry your beard and then add a few drops of our natural tea tree beard oil into the hairs or your hand. Work the product into your facial hair with your hands.
Make sure to massage the oil from the tip to the roots of the hairs to ensure the product reaches the skin underneath your facial hair.
That’s all you have to do! Now your beard is hydrated and soft, and the tea tree oil may address skin issues you may have.
