The addition of certain herbal teas to your daily routine can make a major impact on the health and clarity of your skin. Herbal teas for enhancing the beauty of skin are generally anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, nutrient rich and possess collagen protectant properties.
Some key herbs to look for are:
Nettle– Nettle leaves are nutrient-dense, anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and detoxifying. Nettle is great for addressing acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Red Raspberry– Red Raspberry Leaf is nutrient-dense, anti-oxidant and hormone balancing. This herb is great for skin irritations especially hormonal breakouts.
Blue Butterfly Pea Flower– Known for its anti-oxidant properties and its ability to stimulate collagen production, Blue Butterfly Pea Flower is a great anti-aging tea! It is colorful and pretty to drink too!
Rose– Tea made from Rose petals is anti-oxidant and balancing to female hormones. Rose is anti-aging and calming to many skin irritations including acne.
Hibiscus– Hibiscus is anti-oxidant and rich in Vitamin C which will slow collagen breakdown and support collagen production. It is also anti-inflammatory and beneficial to acne.
Fotunately for us, we don’t need a passion for herbalism to select a great skin tea. Many brands of tea carry one or more blends designed specifically for enhancing skin health. The following are all excellent teas to try:
Caudalie– The organic skincare line has their own Organic Herbal Tea blend for promoting skin beauty. ($14)
I’m Fabulous– A little more intense, the 28 day Ecoteatox has weight management as well as skin clearing effects. ($59.99)
