I drink green tea all the time! However, I have oily skin. It didn't help with my acne, skin, or anything else, but I still love it because of the taste!

Anyways, I heard a lot of great reviews on rubbing the green tea bags on your face, so I tried doing this for a week, and it broke me out really badly! I had cysts all over my chin and white heads everywhere.

But everyone's skin is different, so maybe you can rub it on your face?...

I have been using Green tea moisturizer , it really helps against dryness.

I love this thing! It works wonder.

I suggest buying Green tea moisturizer if your skin is very dry.

Proactiv sell this wonderful product. Is quite expensive though

I don't see how drinking it could possibly help with dry skin. Sure you are drinking water, but the caffeine is a diuretic. I you are talking about iced tea, which is diluted, the amount of water outweighs the diuretic effect. Topically, it is usually soothing to irritated skin. But EGCG can inhibit DHT in follicles so it doesn't stimulate oil.

Are you eating enough healthy fats?

You never know. Tea (specifically oolong) has been shown to be efficacious in the treatment of eczema, which is associated with dry skin and itchiness. Green tea has powerful antioxidants, so you never know.
