Tea tree oil vs vitamin E vs vitamin c. Which one is best for acne scarring?

Depends how you use . I'm guessing you're asking about topical application of all of those things. First i would consider making sure that you're taking some supplements internally, such as omegas, vitamin d, and beta carotene, they help heal skin from inside out. Tea tree oil will help heal infected skin. Vitamin e moisturizes skin, and vitamin c helps add antioxidants to skin, which may reduce scarring.

Myth but use if help. Many of my patients swear by the benefits of tea tree or bio-oil and so i generally don't dissuade them but there is very little science to support its use. It is probably the massage, (which we know helps scars) that is used to apply the oil, which is actually providing the improvements observed. Massage with any clean oil 3-4 times a day. Silicon gel trips are morel likely to improve the scar. Read more...

Get checked. You may have a sensitivity to the chemicals in the tea tree, or to an additive, and may require medical attention to get healed. Do see your medical professional for treatment of your condition, to find out whether it is safe for you to use tea tree oil, and to find an alternative treatment for your acne. Hope that helps.
