Whether or not you have blemish-prone skin, a reliable spot treatment deserves a place in your beauty bag – one that you can pull out on those inevitable occasions when a pimple pops up out of nowhere. Future princess Meghan Markle’s product of choice? Tea tree oil.
“The one thing that I cannot live without when I’m travelling is a small container of tea tree oil,” Markle told Allure. “It’s not the most glamorous thing, but if you get a cut, a mosquito bite, a small breakout, no matter what it is, it’s my little cure-all. It’s in expensive, it’s small enough to carry on and I bring it with me all the time.”
Unlike her favourite blush and concealer, which skew to the expensive side, Markle’s acne treatment of choice can be picked up at Priceline for a mere $6.99. Thanks to its natural antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, tea tree oil is an ideal natural antidote to a stubborn pimple – even Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley is a fan.
