Does Green Tea Fight Acne?

Does Green Tea Fight Acne?

Posted in Acne At Home Treatments by Clear Clinic. | Leave a Comment
The proven over the counter (OTC) acne-fighting ingredients on the market are salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. Salicylic acid works by aiding skin to peel and thus peel off the acne lesion. Salicylic Acid also helps the cells to shed, which prevents clogging of the pores. Benzoyl Peroxide works by introducing oxygen into the pores, which kills the acne-causing bacteria P. Acnes. But what about the more alternative ingredients on the market that are thought to treat acne lesions? A recent study done in the United Kingdom showed that thyme may be a force in the fight against acne. Another alternative ingredient that has ties to acne treatment is green tea. Acne breakouts are brought on by surges in hormones. Green tea is packed with antioxidants that are thought to help regulate hormonal activity. Some patients say their acne clears up after drinking green tea, while others use green tea topically for acne treatment. Other less traditional ingredients that help fight acne are tea tree oil, lactic acid and sulfur. Our recipe for clear skin combines the traditional with the alternative. We recommend using salicylic acid in conjunction with one of these alternative acne-fighting ingredients for the best results.
