Drinking green tea to fight acne

Acne is the most common skin disorder in the world. Blemishes bumps, papules, pustules, spots, whiteheads, zits, goobers, the plaque, almost everyone is liable to get it. It is either non-inflammatory or inflammatory.

Regardless of a person’s age, acne is a condition of clogged hair follicles and the reaction of sebaceous glands, glands that are attached to hair follicles and produce and produce an oily substance called sebum.

Green tea is used by the Chinese as a traditional medicine to treat many ailments including acne and to improve general well-being.

Green tea leaf extract is considered one of the most powerful antioxidants in the world. Several studies investigating its effects on sun damaged skin have shown that topically applied green tea extract have both anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity that counters the destructive impact of ultraviolet.

Study by researchers at the University College London, green tea has the ability to lower hormone levels and correct balances, which have been shown to be factor in the development of acne.

Green tea extracts may also work to inhibit the enzyme 5 alpha reductase (which converts testosterone into the sebaceous gland-stimulating hormone, DHT), and this conceivably could help reduce sebum production in acne patients.
