Mario Dedivanovic has a solution for your blemishes.
"Remember the movie, My Big Fat Greek Wedding? Remember the father?" He asked the host of the show with three small bottles in his hands. "My 'Windex' is tea tree oil. They're all over my house. They all over my travel bags. It helps me with blemishes."
Mario, however, isn't the only one in love with the strong scent of tea tree. The essential oil has a long reputation for being an all-natural solution to acne. It's sourced from a tree native to Australia and widely loved for its antibacterial properties, as well its drying effects on blemishes. If you have dry skin, you may want to use with caution. However, dabbing a small amount onto your blemish remains a promising alternative to other over-the-counter or doctor prescribed solutions.
