Underrated lifestyle hack that's gentle and effective if you have realistic expectations.
I've been an avid tea drinker for nearly 10 years and I found this to be the best supportive care I could ask for. I didn't start drinking it specifically for acne, but I noticed my skin get worse when I wasn't in the habit of drinking green tea every day. It doesn't work like a treatment as far as medication or diy remedies go, but in addition to a good skin care routine, green tea is the GOAT. I tend to sip on tea throughout the day, but I have a more intensive ritual for sore pimples that helps accelerate the process. If you can stomach a strong brew of loose leaf sencha (a japanese variety), put hydrocolloid patches on the worst spots then drink a whole teapot. The warmth and caffeine will work up a bit of a sweat which helps hydrate my skin and activate the pimple patches more quickly. right before bed I remove the patches and usually they extracted everything completely. This has saved me so much money now that I don't have to use them on the same mark for multiple days. I caution against using it if caffeine is a trigger for you though. I know everyone has different body chemistry so use your best judgement. I have combination skin and live in a dry climate so I'm prone to severe dehydration. Skin barrier support and drinking healthy beverages is my best defense against stubborn acne, but that may not be the case for people who have very oily skin types or they live in a wet climate.

The miracle for acne!

The ONLY miracle for acne!!!! 

I have acne on my face, pimples, red inflamed skin, and really bad back acne. I have tried really everything possible on earth to cure my acne. But nothing helped. I have tried Vitamin C, zinc, b5, different teas, fish oil, chlorella, vitamin a, vitamin d, and many many more. Nothing helped. 

Now i am drinking green tea. After only two! days of drinking 2 to 3 small cups of organic caffeine free green tea, my acne is all gone. It is so amazing and i cannot believe how well it works. The redness is gone, less oil on the face and no new pimples, plus the old ones fade away so fastly! It's just amazing. It works like nothing else. It's my miracle cure. Finally found my cure. Hope it helps you too. I recommend to buy caffeine free green tea, because the caffeine tends to make my skin more red. Only the caffeine free tea works for me.

In the last year my skin had been getting increasingly worse: I started breaking out on my scalp, chest and shoulders and also suffered from cystic acne on my face. I tried drinking more water but it wasn't helping. I found these reviews and started drinking green tea straight away. I always have it at home but only drink it a few times a week, my preferred drink being black tea with milk in it (a true Brit!). I changed to loose leaf green tea (like in the picture shown on the left) and the result was apparent the next day, my skin looked less angry. I am now on week three and my skin has completely cleared up, apart from one tiny spot next to my mouth. The redness and inflammation is almost all gone and I think I will be confident enough to go out without makeup soon! I have been using it as a face mask: sometimes I get powdered green tea (matcha) and mix it with aloe vera gel, sometimes I just use the tea by itself on plain cotton wool pads. I'm so happy to have found this natural healing method! I still use the regimen and have been doing so for years, but it has become less effective over time. I'm hoping that green tea will help to clear the cause of my acne so I won't need to use the BP any more. So silly really, I've been brought up with Chinese medicine and I always knew that green tea was cooling, which meant it counteracted the effects of spices and fried/roasted foods, but for some reason I never thought of using it as a treatment. Well now I've started using it I won't be returning to my milky tea! I'll just have one mug a day and then the rest of my drinks will be green tea. I'm averaging about 4 large mugs a day. I've got a whole variety in my cupboard, from flavoured ones to matcha. My favourite is jasmine tea! Give it a go, and if you don't like the taste, try a different brand, but I would recommend good quality loose tea rather than bags, which are just full of tea dust from the bottom of the batch.

Green Tea definitely works - Make sure its quality though!!
This definitely worked for me- it could be the combo of cutting out my daily coffee and replacing it with green tea, but either way I know this has contributed to my glowing skin. I have been drinking several cups of green tea for about two weeks now, and I noticed immediately a decrease in sebum (my skin gets very oily), and I haven't had any new breakouts occurring. I'm really happy with the results and will continue to drink this daily. Word of caution, make sure yours is quality green tea, not lipton or something as you may not get the best benefits out of it. I am using a company called sphere jasmine green tea (loose leaves), straight from China. Pricey but a little goes a long way, delicious and not to bitter, highly recommend.

Great for glowing skin and general body detox!
Hi everyone! Drinking green tea for me is an acquired taste. I personally dont like the bittersweet leafy green taste but I have to admit that it does give my face a natural bright glow; a glow similar to like a person would have after exercising. So despite the taste, I would still drink 2-3 teabags worth daily. I have adult acne meaning I only started to have horrible cystic hormonal acne, lots of whiteheads and noticeable blackheads, tiny bumps and a lot of redness around my T zone and cheeks area in my mid 30s. Prior to that, I had the normal occasional PMS acne from time to time. Otherwise, my skin was spotless, even toned and soft like a baby's bottom. Sun exposure without protection, high stress due to work and unhealthy lifestyle would be the main culprits. So since then I have been making a lot of changes to my skincare regime, doing my own online research and that's how I found this great community website to be one of the most useful. Generally imho, the large chunk of acne cure works by fighting from inwards rather than outwards. So eating healthy food and drink is the way to go. Everybody knows drinking a lot of water and liquid is great for our general health. But I didn't know how serious it is until recently that dairy products is not one of them! I love drinking milk and milktea! Well now that I know, that explains a lot! Coming back to green tea. This is the part where I would like to write about caution. The type of green tea that I use and found to be consistently great for my skin is Japanese green tea of the sencha type. Not matcha. Sencha is robust and made of matured tea leaves, exposed to sun (vitamin D). It is also cheaper and affordable for daily consumption. Matcha on the other hand is more delicate and leafs are filtered from the sun to make it greener. While it presumably has more vitamins packed and higher anti oxidants, a quality matcha can cost 3-4 or more times more than sencha. It is pricey and if you can afford it, why not? From my personal experience, drinking matcha for a month did not help my acne. Infact, more huge cystic acne were formed and made it worse. It hurt so much that some it grew so big, it popped on its own, puss and blood were flowing down my cheeks without me realizing. I have never had cystic acne this horrible. Thankfully this happened at home, else it would have been so embarassing in public! Some people mentioned to me, that's the body detoxing and purging the toxins through the skin. I think whatever that was in matcha was too potent for me. Maybe for others it would not be a problem, so I'd say, drink it with caution. I have since stopped drinking matcha and came back to just drinking lots of plain water and lots of sencha. Never fails me in giving the healthy glow that I want. Drinking green tea helps in overall good skin appearance. Try it 2-3 cups, hot or cold, and plenty of water to flush out the toxins, drink daily for a week or so, results are noticeable.

Good source of antioxidant
Good for your overall health but didn't cure my skin issue. It gave me hyperacidity. I suffer from acid reflux if I drink it 1s a day.
