Tea for Acne

Tea for Skin

Acne present in young people is a skin condition localized, most commonly, at face level, but can spread to the back, shoulders and even chest. It is caused by hormonal imbalances that are hard to pinpoint and treat.

Acne is split-up into 2 main groups:

1. Non-inflammatory acne (comedones) – this type of acne includes  blackheads and whiteheads.

2. Inflammatory acne – papules, pustules, nodules and cysts are part of this category.
