We are going to share with you five different types of tea you can enjoy to help your skin.
1.Green Tea (Matcha)
This is a very common tea that people drink for many reasons, one of those being it is a very powerful acne fighter! It will help with swelling and redness of acne spots. The tea contains a catechin called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which can help reduce inflammation, thus leading to the reduction of swelling and redness spots. It can also help prevent acne from forming. It has ingredients that help prevent clogged pores- every ance spot starts with a clogged pore.
Note: Matcha is much more powerful than green tea, but they both contain caffeine. So, if you are sensitive to caffeine you might want to drink caffeine-free herbal teas. On the other hand, this is a healthier replacement for coffee.
Spearmint tea can be beneficial for acne, and oily skin. This tea can have a powerful anti-androgen effect and when androgen and testosterone levels are lowered the skin will not produce as much or even no acne. Higher testosterone levels can increase the productivity of the oil gland. The tea helps reduce these levels, therefore clearing up your skin and balancing the oil production. In order for this tea to be effective, it is important to drink it every day for a period of at least 2 weeks.
