Fight Acne With This Green Tea Homemade Recipe

ID-100155688There are many products out there for acne and I had a few friends growing up that used some of these products and they simply not do the job or made it worse. A natural cure for those pimples is something you may have in cupboard right now. Green Tea an effective all natural acne treatment.

It makes sense that Green Tea could handle the job of zapping those pimples away. It is a natural antibacterial and astringent. It is loaded with polyphenols and powerful antioxidants, giving green tea its acne fighting power.

You can drink your way to fighting acne with 3 cups a day. Boil water and add to cup. Put in a tea bag, let cool a few minutes and drink away. The caffeine content of green tea is less than half of the caffeine in a cup of black tea. If you are sensitive to caffeine, you may want to use green tea supplements instead as they contain far less caffeine than brewed tea.

Use on your face as a mask: Steep Green Tea Bags for 20 minutes in a quart of water that has been boiled. Once cooled take a cotton ball with the liquid and dab of your pimples. Green Tea has been know to also treat Eczema, and Rosacea as well.

Give mother nature to have a shot at acne treatment which will be easy on the skin and beneficial for your health as well.
