Tea tree oil has saved me from so many skin-related jams. For example, when I got my inner ear pierced a few months ago and it sprouted giant, gross bloody mushroom-type things, the only thing that helped it to heal was my disciplined tea tree oil application. (That, and also not touching it.) Whenever the skin on my face needs a helping hand, I always see quick results when I use The Body Shop's Tea Tree Face Mask. It's basically like taking your skin to a psychologist: it's left feeling relieved and empowered after a cathartic meditation on the burden of living and impossible expectations we place on ourselves. But I digress. Whether I have wind burn or a little enclave of random bumps, this bright green goo makes everything better in less than half an hour. Tea tree for the win, every time — ear mushrooms and breakouts be damned.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask, $17, available at The Body Shop.
