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.
