"What are some alternative treatments for acne? - Tea tree Oil, which
is derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca tree, has shown some
proficiency in reducing the effects of acne. Like benzoyl peroxide,
tea tree oil attacks bacteria and limits oil production, but without
the adverse side effects such as itching, burning, or peeling. Some
people have also seen success with acupuncture to treat their acne.
Better results are usually seen when coupled with nutritional and
lifestyle changes. Be sure to talk with your medical provider about
treatments you are interested in trying."
