Home Remedy #3: Green Tea

Green tea refers to tea made from the leaves and buds of Camellia sinensis before they go through the withering and oxidation process involved in making black tea. While clinical research has not been able to provide conclusive evidence regarding the health benefits of green tea, it has been claimed to help increase mental alertness, decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, and helps with weight loss.

Green tea is thought to be an effective home remedy for acne as it contains high levels of polyphenol antioxidants known as catechins. Since most individuals with acne produce too much sebum, the antioxidants in green tea is thought to help break down waste products and chemicals that can damage cells. To use green tea for acne, individuals with acne can drink it or use the extract on their skin.
