Green Tea, or Camellia Sinensis, has long been proven to be a natural herbal acne skin treatment. It is effective in reducing inflammation, decreasing hormone activity, and killing the deadly bacteria Staphylococcus Aureus and the bacteria that causes acne.

In China, they mix green tea with honeysuckle and call this the Pimple Tea. It is made into a cream or lotion, and applied directly into the affected areas.

Aside from its healing effects, Green Tea is also rich in antioxidants called Polyphenols. These fight cellular degradation and encourage cellular growth. Thus fighting the damage from aging and delaying it.

The reason for such properties in Green tea is because of the way it is prepared. Instead of being fermented, green tea leaves are steamed as soon as they are plucked to prevent oxidation and to retain active substances in the leaves.
