Not only is it good for you internally, if you make a toner out of it you can get benefits as well. It contains AHA.

How do you make it into a toner???
I'm on my second cup of tea today!

For me, I just save a little tea in my cup with the tea bag and use it after it's cooled. I smooth the tea bag over my face concentratng on my "bad zones" and then rinse my face with the tea (I drink my tea without sugar or anything in it). Pat my face dry and that's it! I usually do that in the afternoon if my skin feels like it's getting oily. I would like to hear how murfirhea does it as well. smile.gif

so its been 2 days since i've been drinking the lipton version of the tea.
i really wasn't expecting anything since there are a lot of threads here that promise a lot of things but don't own up to it.
i can honestly say that my acne has really gone down!
i have a really bad cyst near the right side of my eye and its really calmed down.
theres no pain anymore and its less angry!!!
whoo hoo!
thanks bunnylips!!! eusa_clap.gif
also...the tea is making me a feel a lot healthier too!
or maybe its the natural caffeine w/ the black tea that comes with it?
wutever it is....i love it and all for it!
i hope everyone finds success in just drinking tea...it tastes great and its so easy!
surprised.gif

I am SO glad that you see an improvement after drinking this tea!!!!!! eusa_dance.gif You're right, the tea does make your body feel better too! I was a little upset this morning...I had a small cyst form in my bad zone over night...after 28 days of no breakouts. However, it is WAY smaller and not nearly as painful as my previous ones. I'm going to have to wait to see how long it will take for it to go away...I'm hoping the life cycle will be short due to this tea. I'll keep you posted wink.gif If I get one zit a month I'll be happy!!!! I can deal with that!!!

This sounds promising smile.gif I just purchased a tin of the "get gorgeous" stuff.
I had some blueberry rooibos tea (loose) a few days ago, and I am not sure if it is a coincidence that it was clearer. One thing though is that I just started the medication Spironolactone-- Does anyone take that and drink this tea? Is the tea at all dehydrating?

ok...here's an update on my "tea treatment":
It's been 49 days since I've been drinking this tea and I've had two cysts (in the usual spots) in that time frame. Both were fairly small and neither of them came to a head. I spot treated them with diluted tea tree oil, a little sulfur and a dab of BP for an added kick. They each lasted 6/7 days before they quietly went away. I did notice the second one formed while I was out of town on business and was not drinking as much tea as I normally do. eusa_doh.gif I still drink at LEAST 6 cups a day. I'm a believer until it proves me otherwise! biggrin.gif

i absolutely love this stuff!
everyone has been saying how great my face looks now!
most of my acne has disappeared but there are still some that are noticeable
i was wondering if maybe tea brands make a difference?
i went to lupicia (that tea store in the malls) and their tea was the same price for the get georgeous tin
the lipton tea that i got was 2 for $1 at target

I tried Roobios and it did nothing for me that green tea doesn't and it's A LOT more expensive than green tea too...but it tastes delicious. Glad it worked for you!

I am hooked! I buy it by the bulk now online...the "Be Well Red Teas" by The Republic of Tea called "get gorgeous" for clear skin. I'm sure any Rooibos tea will have the same benefits but I'm not taking the chance at this point. IT'S WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had one of my friends try it last week...she's hooked too. It's great for anti-aging as well (I'm 45 so that's a dual-benefit for me).
My skin is actually "radiant". And I have not used BP or SA or any harsh treatments since I started drinking this tea.
For the first time in 10 years I have clear skin!!!! biggrin.gif



Can you post a link to where you get this online??
Love to see the pricing for bulk.

Today I went to get tea at school, and they usually have lots of packs with different flavors. Tazo mostly. U know,the one that Starbucks uses. Anyway, there was a tea called African Red Bush, Igridients rooibos, hint of hibiscus flowers, lemon and sweet spices, a pinch of rosemary. It's not the same, but still is something. And maybe it's easier to find. I went to target, they have Tazo teas sometimes. They did not have it.sad.gif

I tried plain rooibos, and it tasted like pickles. Um, should that be the case?
