Acne Solution for Oily Skin

acne solution for men

If you are reading this post, most likely you have oily skin and you get acne quite often. Well, I was at the same spot you are right now and trust me you have come to the right place. There could be a lot of causes for this and it’s high time that we know an acne solution for oily skin that works.

An acne takes 3-4 days to grow completely but our brain is smart enough to send us signals when a new breakout is about to happen. Our skin turns red and we also feel a little pain.

What We Usually Do?

Normally we get to know if a new acne is growing after getting up in the morning. We feel bad, irritated and think about various ways that can help us hide it (I especially hate when I get an acne on a weekend). And then begins our battle with acne. We touch the red spot frequently and invite the acne to come out ASAP and believe me that’s what it does. Our continuous touching only makes the breakout worst. DO NOT EVER DO THAT.

What Should You Do?

Now, here comes the good part because I’m gonna share something that has worked for me and I’m sure it would work for you too. Acne can be treated in a much better way than what we have been doing all these years. We just need to know the right way and right products.

First things first, make yourself a promise today, that you will never ever try to pop out an acne intentionally. And if you can keep this promise and follow the regime you will be told, you will love the change that will happen.

My life changed, or I should say, my life around acne changed when I got to know about Tea Tree Oil. It has been used to treat different skin related problems for years and acne is one of them. After using a bunch of products and not getting the desired results I thought to try products with TTO in them without any expectations. But this worked. It reduced the breakouts, cleared the skin by removing blemishes and made me more confident.

Start using products with TTO in them and see the difference yourself.

Here’s What I do!

I prepare a paste with Khadi Neem, Basil, and Mint Face Mask/Anti-Acne (5-6 gms) (Review Here) with Rose Water (8-10 drops) and Tea Tree Oil (4-5 drops).

  • Clean your face with a mild cleanser like The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Cleaning Facial Wash (Review Here) and apply the paste after rinsing off.
  • Leave it for 15-20 minutes until it dries off. Splash water, exfoliate gently and rinse off.
  • Apply a very little amount of moisturizer (Read Best Moisturizer for Men | Non-Comedogeinc).
  • Repeat this twice a day until the acne dries off.

P.S. – Even if your acne grows up, do not pop it out. It will dry out quickly because of the face mask and won’t leave a mark behind. You can use any mud paste in case the one mentioned above isn’t available.

Happy Skin to You!




  1. Can I mix tea tree oil and rose water with fullers earth for the same acne treatment?

    • Hi Lakshmi,

      Yes, you can but I would rather clean my face with Rosewater before applying the paste rather than mixing it in.
      Try both and see what works better for you.

      Let us know.


  2. Hi Anubhav,
    Have you heard of people being allergic to Tea tree oil? I’m fairly sensitive to things on my skin but natural stuff seems to be better for the most part.

    • Hi Zachary,

      Haven’t heard of anyone being allergic to Tea Tree Oil yet but know some cases where people used more than recommended amount and got skin inflation and rashes. It could be harsh if you have a sensitive skin and Tea Tree Oil is not used properly. But being used in controlled amount, this is a great product for skin. I love it 😉


  3. Nice write up. I will work towards it. I gotta remove these new acnes with speed. Thanks

  4. Hi, Anubhav!
    Always good to get some tip on how to get rid of acne in good ways.
    I use a product called Lactacyd intimate wash for my face to stay away from acne.
    Regards, Jan

    • Hi Jan,

      Glad you liked the it. Using Lactacyd for acne is good if it gives you the desired result.
      Thank you for sharing your story. 🙂


  5. Okay so I can’t wait to try this now. I bought tea tree oil from the body shop a couple weeks ago and have tried applying it directly to my face. That hasn’t worked out so well so I want to try this paste you suggest. And also the face cleanser from the body shop. Looking forward to it!

    • Hi Gabriela,

      I would not recommend to apply pure Tea Tree Oil directly to your face. It could make your skin very dry and cause rashes. I’m sure it will work with the paste.

      You are welcome to share your experience after using these products.


  6. Really good content! I run 10 miles a day so I’m a pretty big enthusiast for keeping my skin clean. I like the content and its all fairly spot on Keep up the good work!
    I like how you highlighted specific points and keep the verbiage conversational. Very useful to know how to keep your skin clean and really liked the set up of images on this page

    • Hi Arif,

      Great to know that you care about your skin. We all should.

      Thanks for sharing!


  7. This sounds like a real good solution to getting rid of acne. I know I hate it when acne just pops up one morning. Does your fix help the redness go away or does it take a day or two to go away. I love quick fixes but also fixes that last. If you know what I mean. If you can make it less red and go away at the same time is ideal. I really like your posts!

    • Hi Kenny,

      I can relate to that morning feeling. This fix has been working for me for a long time now. However, it does not let go away the redness instantly; it is no magic, you see! However, it definitely reduces the redness and more important than that it dries out the potential acne saving me from a week of trouble and pain. This could take a day or two of repeating the same solution depending on the acne. I am glad that you liked the posts.
