It is no surprise that green tea is one of the most beneficial herbs for your body. You might have heard of its amazing antioxidant powers and cancer fighting abilities, but it is also one of the best natural remedies for your skin.

Antioxidants fight free radicals and lower the rate of aging, revitalizing the skin after exposure to harmful UV rays. Green tea is also active in the cell renewal process, which makes skin look supple and fresh. By promoting the rejuvenation of new cells, antioxidants can rid the body’s surface of dead skin, and exfoliation will buff away sebum, dirt, and excess oils. For more information, read Shikha Desai’s article, “Beauty benefits of green tea.”

Green tea also reduces redness caused by acne, irritation, or natural coloration. Many people have redness around the nose, mouth, and cheeks. Applying green tea in the form of a cleanser or beauty mask is the best way to actively treat the skin using a natural product.

If you are looking for a cheap facial scrub without the hassle of creating your own concoction, consider St. Ives’ Blemish Control Green Tea Scrub, which can be found in most drugstores. If you prefer a homemade recipe with all natural ingredients, there are many ways to incorporate green tea.
