What's your experience with green tea?

Both in terms of the effect or lack of and regarding the different qualities of green tea

I recommend white tea. Both white and green are not going to clear your acne but they ara tasty and very healthy so you can't really go wrong with it.

It will only help your acne if its liver related. Like as in, your acne is due to toxins in your body. Green and White tea help cleanse the liver and is an antioxidant. I don't imagine that it would help clear acne in most cases since a lot of times it is hereditary, bacterial or hormone related. However both are extremely good for you, might help w/acne and skin because they clean out toxins in the body. Best of all they aid in the prevention of cancer.

Im not quite sure what you mean by "bacterial related". Im assuming you're not refering to p.acnes since this bacteria is always involved in acne.
Green tea is also know to boost the immune system so in that way it may have a helpful effect on acne.

this might have your intrest:

"Green tea and skin protection

A number of animal studies have shown that topical treatment or oral consumption of green tea polyphenols, inhibit chemical carcinogen or ultraviolet radiation-induced skin tumours in different animal models28-30. Treatment of green tea polyphenols to skin has been shown to have a beneficial effect on the biochemical pathways involved in skin inflammation, cell proliferation and chemical tumour promoters. These results have been confirmed in a human model, where topical application of green tea polyphenols protected against UV light induced DNA damage31. Based on results mainly from animal studies, many companies are now supplementing their skin care products with green tea extracts. However, the effects on human skin are still not well understood and further research in this field is required."
