Tea tree oil make my acne worse?

I have oily, acne prone skin. Before this, I had experience using Some By Mi, Snail Trucica Line and Miracle Line. But its didn't improve my skin concern. Change my routine using Aiken, Tea tree Line. But my acne get even more. Does anyone have any idea, where did I do wrong? Does it because of Tea Tree? I thought Tea tree can soothing our acne 😭

Skincare products are not one-size-fits-all. What works for some may not work for others. If you think your routine is breaking you out even more, I would suggest consulting with a dermatologist to find out if you need to be prescribed something stronger like acne meds (isotretinoin, differin, benzoyl peroxide, etc.). One more thing, somebymi is known to put fragrance in their products so maybe that's what's breaking you out? But then again, only a licensed specialist can tell you why that's happening and what can be done to prevent it from getting worse.

Well one of the doctor in my country said tea tree doesn't control sebum. It stops it, if you have oily/dry skin it might be dangerous. Since our skin have to produce sebum to moisture the skin itself. Recently i avoid skincare that contain a lot of tea tree, especially tea tree oil. Backdays i use tea tree oil one my face literally everyday, AND IT DRYING MY SKIN AND MAKE MY FACE OILY AT THE SAME TIME. I have dehydrated oily skin because of this😭
