FAQs

Q: My 11-year old son just woke up with his first blemish. I’m reluctant for him to treat it with a standard over-the-counter acne product. Is tea tree oil a safe alternative?

A: While tea tree oil is a recommended acne treatment for teens and adults, there’s evidence that it can cause pre-pubescent males to develop breasts. Instead of tea tree oil or harsh over-the-counter treatments, opt for a mild, non-medicated facial cleanser. If more blemishes appear, consider talking to a family doctor about other safe acne solutions.

Q: Does tea tree oil have an unpleasant scent?

A: Tea tree oil has a particular scent that some people may find unpleasant. However, because the oil is diluted before use, the scent becomes less heavy and fades throughout the day.

Q: I have eczema and experience occasional bouts of mild to moderate acne. Many of the over-the-counter acne treatments I’ve tried have triggered irritations. Is tea tree oil an option for me?

A: Unfortunately, tea tree oil may worsen eczema according to WebMD. For acne treatments that are safe and effective for treating acne alongside eczema, talk to your doctor or dermatologist.

Q: I have rosacea, so my skin is very reactive and sensitive. If the Clarisonic skin care system delivers such powerful results with the rotating brush heads, is it gentle enough for my skin?

A: The sonic technology that powers the Clarisonic skin care system utilizes rapid, small movements that work with your skin, not against it. The system is safe for all skin types, and is a gentle and effective cleansing technique for rosacea sufferers. If you have concerns, talk to your dermatologist.
