Article Body:
Natural remedies have become very popular in recent years. People have stopped looking at the expensive
medications and creams to cure various conditions, and have started looking at remedies found closer to
home. This is, in part, because they are less expensive, but they are also on hand and easily obtained.


Acne is a common condition in teens and adults alike, and is no exception to the theory that a home remedy
can sometimes be better. If it's worked for many years, why wouldn't it work now? One such remedy
believed to aid in the healing of acne is green tea.


While many teas are fermented, green tea instead, is steamed soon after being picked so as to prevent the
oxidation of its leaves. This helps to retain the active substances the leaves contain. Camellia Sinensis, or
as we know it, green tea extract, contains a high content of Polyphenol, along with other important
antioxidants.


Green tea can serve many purposes, and it is recommended for a number of reasons. It acts as an anti-
bacterial substance, decreasing hormonal activity. Since acne is often caused by hormones, which produce
excess oil and clog pores, thereby causing blemishes, green tea could be a good remedy for this problem.


The antioxidents contained in green tea have been shown as very beneficial to acne prevention because they
help the body fight against free radicals that cause cell and tissue damage. Green tea also has very few
potential side effects, especially when compared to other acne products and medications.


Because of its advantages, green tea is also used in various creams and other topical products used to treat
acne. When compared with other commonly used acne treatments, it ranked high, because of its natural
anti-bacterial properties.
Other products containing green tea extract are also sold and developed, and are available as herbal
remedies. It can be purchased as a cream.


Green Tea and honeysuckle is often called Pimple Tea in China. It also helps your body rid itself of toxins,
which helps prevent acne.


Green tea is also easily available. It can be purchased in most stores that carry various herbal and other
natural remedies, and can also be bought through many on-line sources. It comes in the form of tea that you
drink, or can be purchased in the form of the cream mentioned above.


Drinking green tea will help cleanse your body from the inside out, while applying the topical cream, which
goes directly onto the skin, will help cure and prevent acne at the source. No matter how you choose to use
it, it can serve many purposes, and may be a welcome alternative to harsh products or unwanted
medications.
