Re: Skin has cleared up, does tea help?
I think tea does help. I was sick for two weeks, lost my voice and was drinking alot of hot green tea. I noticed my skin really cleared up. My skin looks smooth and fresh now. It has never really looked like this so I started thinking about what I'd done differently in the past two weeks. I rarely drink tea so that was the major difference. I got curious so I Googled "green tea, acne" and other variations. There are ALOT of articles saying that green tea really helps and the Chinese have used this remedy for years. I guess a doctor named Jennifer Gan-Wong, M.D. did a study and found that green tea works just as good as benzoyl peroxide with the benefit of not drying out your skin! Drinking tea is best because it goes in your system quicker, but apparently there are pills you can take too. Even putting tea bags on acne bumps is supposed to help the swelling! You are also supposed to brew fresh and keep the sugar to a minimum/if any because the sugar can prohibit the "good stuff" in the tea from working.
Hope this helps!
