there's about 20% of the amount of coffeine that's in a cup of coffee so it's not to bad.

Secondly, there's no proof that coffee will make you acne worse or that green tea will make you clear although it is without a doubt good for your overall health.

Finally, you cannot rely on green tea alone to make you clear. It should be seen as one out of a range of methods to combat acne.

hello,

it may interest you guys...I have been using green tea extract drops They are far superior to the pills, and 100000x better than drinking stupid tea bags or arizona tea. One dropperfulll added to water is equal to drinking 15 teabags worth of green tea. i take 3 dropperfulls a day with a really large bottles of water with each one which equals 45 teabags worth.

Since i have been doing this, along with using a green tea soap i purchased from i-godiva.com, a simple moisturizer during the day,  and tazorac .1 (the gold one) at night. i have cleared up my severe cystic acne in 3 weeks.

previously i was using clindamycin in the morning, and tazorac at night. it was okay, but i was still breaking out every day. but ever since ive been doing the green tea, NO break outs (i dont wanna jinx it). Nothing. i have had no new cysts or imperfections on my face. everything has cleared up. smooth as hell and all my red marks have dissapeared.

green tea is friggin amazing i reccomend the extract drops to anyone. trick is drink the green tea in LARGE quantities.

just 3 dropperfulls== 45 cups of green tea.

btw i got it at a local vitamin store but u can prob find them in the vitamin shop.

i dont post here often and probably will never anymore since im clear but i thought i should let you know

I want to drink more Green Tea, but I can't stand the bitter aftertaste. I refuse to put sugar in green tea, has anyone tried honey?

honey is better than sugar, because it is anti-septic and has tons of good stuff in it

Make sure it's RAW honey. It's a bit more expensive but much better for you. Honey in the rough is a good raw honey brand. You should be able to find it at health food stores.

I went to Wild Oats and bought 2 oz. of Green Tea liquid extract.
It contains:
-170mg of Green Tea Leaf
-100mg of Green Tea Extract
-10mg of Stevia Leaf Extract
and also contains Deionized Water, Vegetable Glycerin, Honey and Luo Han Guo.

It says a serving size is 30 drops. Well I hope it works as well as it did for pscott, because it cost about 12 dollars.
Oh yeah, I also picked up 30 capsules of 60mg of Grape Seed Extract for about $10.

cjb, It doesn't say but I can't imagine it containg caffeine; the teabags may though.

I'm going to try and take 30 drops one to two times a day in 16.9 oz. of cold water
btw vitaminworld.com is having a 40% off sell on everything but I don't know how long it goes to

I'm not sure. I take minocyline myself so I hope the green tea doesn't affect that. My doctor nor pharmacy has mentioned anything about this. The only thing my minocycline prescription says is "Do Not Take Antacids, Vitamins, Iron, or Dairy Products within 2 hours of taking this medicine." So I wait 2 hours to take my vitamins.
