Having acne is frustrating. Washing this with facial wash does not help either. Logging entries on your food diary and identifying the food or drink that causes acne can be effective, but how about the acne scars and lesions? It will take time to heal those. Another best solution for faster acne scar recovery aside from putting topical medication, avoiding milk, and not eating specific foods is drinking GREEN TEA 3505 or using green tea bags for pimples. You are wondering now if green tea is effective. Let’s find out!
According to an article from NCBI National Library of Medicine, a randomized clinical trial was conducted for almost 1 year and the result was the reduction in cholesterol level and lesions inflammation. Green tea’s catechins (antioxidants) particularly EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) are the ones that help in fighting inflammation and swelling. Not only green tea bags can cure pimples and acne scars, but also can help you flush toxins, and boost your immune system.
GREEN TEA ACNE BEAUTY HACKS
On boiled water, steep the green tea as if you will be drinking it or as per package instruction. Let it cool then, dip a cotton ball or a washcloth and dab it on the pimple. Store the remaining green tea on a spray bottle or a cleanser bottle. Green tea helps in fighting hormonal imbalance through reducing blood sugar and decreasing insulin levels where in effect, less sebum oil production or oily skin. Sebum, mixed with dirt and sweat, is often the culprit behind large and inflamed pimples.
For the leftover cool green tea bags, get the leaves out of those bags, mix these with honey (face mask) or brown sugar (face scrub), and leave the mixture on your face for 15-30 minutes if using as face mask (honey) or massage the face for 10 minutes if using as face scrub (brown sugar) then, rinse.
Topical skincare products with green tea and caffeine are known to be effective in reducing breakouts. These do not make the skin too dry unlike with benzoyl peroxide and retinol. Safer to drink and use too unlike with acne pills where you are not sure if it is safe to take this without side effects.
OTHER GREEN TEA BEAUTY BENEFITS
You can use the green tea leaves as pimple drier, face mask, face scrub, and fat burner. Since green tea has mild caffeine, you can drink it at least 30 minutes to an hour before your workout. Drinking caffeine improves your performance when you workout since this will make you become alert and awake. It also helps with weight loss by suppressing your appetite especially when you take 1-2 cups before dinner. Green tea keeps you hydrated as well and makes you eat less.
A safe beauty and health drink product indeed. It does not mean that you will drink as much green tea as you want. Just use these on your skin correctly and drink in moderation like 2-3 cups a day. Green tea is one of the best natural drink alternatives to water.
