Green tea is a drink made from the potency and dried leaves of the Camellia sinesis plant, a shrub local to Asia. Green tea is a type of tea made exclusively with the leaves of Camellia sinensis that has undergone least oxidation during processing. There are three main varieties of tea green, black, and oolong. The difference between the teas is in their processing.

Green teas have become an integral part of home remedies everywhere, from skin and teeth care to general preventative measures.
Green tea is quite distinctive as compared to other teas in that it is not fermented. This valuable herbal tea is steamed very quickly after it is harvested in order to keep all of its active ingredients in tact. Green tea's antioxidants have been shown to be highly beneficial to acne prevention.
Acne is a common condition in teens and adults alike, and is no exception to the theory that a home remedy can sometimes be better.

Drinking green tea will help cleanse your body from the inside out, while applying the topical cream, which goes directly onto the skin, will help cure and prevent acne at the source.
