green tea

Well ladies, first it was honey, then tea tree oil, lavender, and even witch hazel. Now its suggested that a cotton ball soaked w/ your green tea brew can improve complexion! Cell studies suggest that the polyphenols in green tea could help revive aging skin cells and even aid in wound healing ... I read that as pimples! :-P

It helped a lot during my diet.
And now i am drinking lots of green tea at home. Often i feel my face tighten with the effect of the green tea.

I will definitely have to try that as I do get breakouts every now and then - esp during the smoggy days of summer. Thanks for the tip, Spotty!

I just love green tea on Feb 09, 2009 @ 08:10 pm

Personally, I don't want to bother doing this. I just really love drinking green tea because it helps detoxify and cleanse my system. Also, I use it instead of drinking coffee or hot chocolate as a picker-upper in the morning.

tea skin experiment on Feb 10, 2009 @ 01:37 pm

Green tea can help a lot of things so I'm not surprised that people are recommending this and the perk to doing it is it isn't harsh on your skin.

A lot of face washes are super harsh due to all of the chemicals and fragrances they put into them, I find milder products to be much more effective as they don't dry out my skin and if my skin isn't dry there's no dead skin blocking my pores which minimizes breakouts.

I'll have to play with this recommendation though it'll be hard for me as I love my green tea, I bet a nice red tea would help as well *ponders* I guess I'll have to start the tea skin experiment and test all of my teas out on my skin :P

any results? on Feb 26, 2009 @ 11:25 am

I'd forgotten about this post. I'll have to try this now, too.
