bio-oil vs tea tree oil – which is the best spot treatment

I’ve always struggled to keep up beauty regimes.  I’ve heard that it takes a month for skin to regenerate, so that’s how long you should try any new product for.  But I’m always a little sceptical about this.  I mean after all, if skin renews itself in a month, wouldn’t any imperfections clear up anyway, regardless of what you use?  If I don’t see results in a couple of weeks or so, I begin to get impatient.
So, since my last post about my experimentation with the Bio-oil, I’ve decided that the so-called breakthrough treatment needs a helping hand.  I’ve reverted back to my fail-safe, tea tree oil.  OK, it’s sometimes a bit harsh, and seems to renew your skin a lot quicker, i.e. you’re peeling within days, but it really gets the job done, zapping spots and blemishes quickly and effectively.
I wouldn’t advise tea tree oil for everyone though.  It is super strong, so for sensitive skin it’s probably not the way to go.  Also, you need to apply SPARINGLY, with a cotton bud, or it will sting.  However, I think its strong astringent properties, balanced by the softness of the Bio-oil, seems to be going in the right direction for me.
I will keep up with the Bio-oil for the three months as advised, and try my very best not to get too impatient.  My name does mean patience, so maybe I should live up to that.
