Can drinking tea tree oil get rid of acne scars?

No: It is a weak estrogen and has given men gynecomastia. It is the one topical remedy for active lesions of acne for people who belong to cults that allow only plant-based medicine.

No evidence,However:: Erythritol may be the safest natural sweetener available. I know of no evidence it reduces antioxidants in tea. See http://authoritynutrition.com/erythritol/ HOWEVER, if you're drinking tea with erythritol it's probably bottled tea which only has a tiny fraction of the antioxidants in home-brewed tea.So avoid bottled tea but you can add erythritol to home-brewed tea.
