Do you have problematic face skin? This time we will talk about herbal tea for skin problems that will purify the body and also your face. Almost every person had some skin issues and I am sure you had it too. Skin irregularities, pimples, acne, warts, and even dandruff can be a reflection of imbalances, but don’t worry; I have the right natural solution for you.
Skin is our biggest cleaning organ and you should take care of it. As garbage is accumulating in our houses, a lot of metabolic waste is being produced in our cells. And just like regular cleaning of the waste from the house creates a good atmosphere, our cells also feel good if they can get rid of the toxins in time.
I am presenting you herbal teas that have no caffeine, a lot of vitamins and antioxidants, and are appropriate to drink during the day for cleansing.
Does herbal tea help your skin?
You already know that you should drink a lot of fluids per day for a normal body functioning. It is known that the body needs at least 2 liters of fluid per day, but many people make mistakes here. These two liters of liquids are meant water, natural juices or unsweetened teas.
Sweet beverages don’t have a good effect on your body. These sugary drinks won’t quench your thirst, and you are also entering large amounts of sugar into your body, which contributes to obesity and potentially in the onset of diabetes and cancer. Skin also doesn’t like too much sugar. And which herb teas are appropriate for clean and healthy skin?
The main ingredients in the birch leaves and bark juice are flavonoids, essential oils, tannins, and vitamin C. Birch juice also contains sugars, salts and proteins, and a lot of betulin. Due to diuretic properties, this tea is recommended for your body detox (remember, your skin is a big part of the cleansing process).
Birch tea is recommended for slow blood circulation, pimples or dull skin. It is ideal if you use young fresh or dried birch leaves. To prepare the tea use 12 fresh leaves (or 1 teaspoon of dried leaves) and drain them for 8 minutes in 225 ml of boiling water. You can add honey for a better flavor. Enjoy this pleasant herbal tea with a taste of wood 3x a day.
Linden is one of the most famous and popular herbs for making tea. It is good because it helps to eliminate spots and face wrinkles. In addition, it should also promote hair growth and acts as a mild sleeping agent.
Ingredients and effect
Linden flower effects are present due to essential oils with farnesol as the main active ingredient, mucus, wax, flavonoids, tannins, sugar, and vitamins. It is a great skin purifier as it promotes sweat and acts as a diuretic.
The taste is somewhat similar to chamomile. It has sweet, aromatic and apple-like taste. Soak 2 teaspoons of fresh flowers (or 1 teaspoon of dried) in 225 ml of boiling water for a maximum of 10 minutes. You can add honey if you love your tea sweet.
Rose hip fruits contain high concentrations of vitamins A, B, E, K, P and especially C. People say that a cup of rosehip fruits contains as much vitamin C as 150 oranges. Quite impressing, right?
Protects from free radicals
This red color tea is a wonderful way to keep your body reserves full (antioxidants help to protect your skin against the danger of free radicals caused by smoke, contamination and sun damage).
Use 1 teaspoon of rose hips in 225 ml of boiling water. Leave it for about 5 minutes and add a little honey (this tea is also good against the cold). Did you know that vitamin C is also important for the formation of collagen in the skin? Collagen is responsible for tight and young-looking skin, so don’t hesitate and make yourself a fresh cup of rose hip.
Cannabis is a plant that is making its path to the world of alternative medicine pretty fast. It contains a lot of magnesium and iron, which is why it is a source of good nutrients. Our body needs these nutrients for proper functioning. This tea has a very good and positive effect on the immune system.
Good for digestive disorders
Tea from cannabis also helps with digestive disorders and has beneficial effects on the digestive tract. If you suffer from any inflammation or other illness, this tea will naturally relieve the pain and act anti-inflammatory.
It is also recommended to use it when you have kidney problems. It is a very good antioxidant agent as it protects the body against bacteria and inhibits the growth of cancer cells.
Nettle tea contains more beta carotene and vitamin C than most cultivated vegetables and doesn’t lack any other vitamins, just like no different carotenoids, flavonoids, organic acids, phytosterols, lectins, and other bioactive substances, among which the role of chlorophyll should not be ignored.
Natural blood purifier
Nettles are natural blood purifiers, so they are also good for clean skin. Take a teaspoon of dried nettle leaves or a teaspoon of ground dried nettle roots and put them in a cup (2 to 2.5 deciliters) of boiling water. Leave the tea to stand for 5-10 minutes and strain it.
How much should you drink it a day?
Drink it 3x a day and you should see good results on your skin. The invigorating, strengthening and healing power of the nettle can be strengthened with a little honey.
Drink herbal teas for skin problems
As you already know, your body needs fluids to function right. If you have skin problems, it is even more vital that you drink a lot of fluids to make your cleaning organs like the skin, kidneys, and liver an easier job.
Why is herbal tea for skin problems so recommendable anyway? Your body loves clean water but these non-caffeine teas are much more than just colored water. They have various active substances that help people to cope with different types of diseases and health conditions. Antioxidants in teas protect us from free radicals.
Tea from herbs are rich in vitamin C will make your skin elastic and will enable a normal collagen production. As I said before, collagen is crucial for young and toned skin. Body toxins are responsible for many health issues (also skin issues), so you need to protect the body and detoxify. Herbal teas have the ability to clean our body from inside out. In addition, some are known as mild diuretics and can help us with problematic skin even more, as they increase urine secretion.
