New You Beauty Tip: Apply topical green tea cream to acne for significant improvement over other products.

 In a recent eight-week split-faced clinical trial, the Journal of Investigative Dermatology reports that green tea, when applied directly, significantly improves acne. The report follows an investigation by scientists at the Acne Research Laboratory into green tea’s major polyphenol, ECGC that concludes green tea targets “almost all the pathogenic features of acne” like over production of oil and inflammation. Additional studies report that green tea is superior to zinc, another ingredient in popular acne products. So if your looking to try something new and a bit more natural, select a topical green tea lotion as your next plan of attack against acne.
