When dead skin cells close the pores and when there is an excess of sebum or your skin is very oily acne, blackheads, cysts and pimples occur. Those who have acne know how persistent they can be.
Various lotions, creams, gels, and even antibiotic therapies are used for their treatment but the drug does not work.
Studies have shown nettle tea really can help in the fight against acne.
Nettle has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, antioxidant activity and it collects and neutralizes destructive radicals. Thanks to the ingredient scopoletin, nettle has anti inflammatory properties.
Also, nettle extract has antimicrobial activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, including most common pathogens: S. aureus and E.Coli. Since it inhibits the growth of bacteria and inflammation, nettle tea has extremely positive effects on the skin.
Nettle tea is easily prepared at home or can be obtained cheaply from a health food store. It is recommended to drink four cups of nettle tea a day in order to obtain the best results for eliminating acne. Additionally, if you have any other skin ailments, such as eczema, your new tea habit will also help clear that up.
This tea is worth of trying!
