Adult acne treatment – does green tea help?

by

Friday 24th July 2009

Adult acne can be the bane of many people’s lives. A University of Miami study has found evidence for the use of green tea bags as an adult acne treatment… we’re are not so sure.

We’re all aware of the medical v natural remedy argument and both probably have their merits. Anti-biotics prescribed by a doctor can no doubt help acne, however it can often be months and months until you see an improvement. The study here saw volunteers apply green tea lotion to their adult acne and also drink green tea and apply strained tea bags to the affected areas.

Due to its antioxidant properties the green tea method was reported to have improved the skin by around 40% over two months. We don’t think that this is much of an improvement when you compare it to the more modern methods of adult acne treatment.

IPL, microdermasion and skin peels can all offer an effective, yet natural means of eradicating acne and keeping further outbreaks at bay. With a few visits to a registered skincare clinic like SkinGenesis, you can be acne-free in a matter of weeks. Everyone’s acne problem is different too, so a tailored programme of treatments and ‘at home’ kits are put together to make sure you get exactly what you expect.

Watch a microdermabrasion demonstration here, and take a look at our before and after pictures of our adult acne treatment.

    The best free acne home remedy is to actually drink green tea; since acne is often caused by problem deeper than the skin, drinking green tea can help to really get to the root of the problem.

    The EGCG in green tea has been shown to rejuvenate dying skin cells and this provides many benefits for the skin. The person who researched this health benefit of green tea is Dr Hsu and he had the following to say on the Medical College of Georgia website, ‘“When exposed to EGCG the old cells found in the upper layers of the epidermis appear to start dividing again,” Dr Hsu said, “They make DNA and produce more energy. They are reactivated. There are lots of unknowns – this is the first step into the door – but if we can energize dying skin cells, we can probably improve the skin condition”’

    Fresh high quality green tea is best.

    Thanks for this informative article about acne treatments. Acne is very hard to treat, i’ve been suffering 10 years now, and from my experience topical gel such is tretinoin can be very good choice. Isotretinoin is OK for severe cases only.
