My advice, don't stress over that small amount off caffeine in your green tea or the unlikely effects from everything else you eat. Anyway, the tea is probably a great trade-off, lots of great stuff, but you have to take a little bit of caffeine with it. No big deal.

1. First of, it is one of many myths about acne that coffee - necessarily - should make acne worse.
2. Secondly, Green tea contains about 20% thÃƒÂ© amount of coffeine coffee does.
3. Thirdly, the main reason for drinking green tea is antioxidants which improves your overall health and immune system, but not necessarily your acne.
4. The amount of antioxidants needed is about 150-200 catechins.
However, since the amount is very low in most commercial green tea you would have to drink 8-12 cups a day to have an effect!
This is why you need to get green tea in health stores and look for green tea where the amount of catechins is specified.
