Hi I was reading through some of the comments about use of Green Tea for skin care. I recently started using green tea on my skin as I am hyper sensitive to most products and have very dry skin. I noticed that a few people were saying they found their skin drier and or inflamed with pimples. I noticed that I had to use an unbleached teabag to make any difference to my skin and I would suggest that people try to make sure the tea they use is brewed in an unbleached teabag or make your own from looseleaf tea. I have very paleskin and suffer from dark circles under my eyes and I have definately found that using a green tea soaked cotton makeup pad has improved my dark circles. My husband has very oily and sallow skin and he is prone to pimples but has found that using sage tea has always worked wonders on his skin. Sage tea is also a natural astringent so this is what helps with the pimples.
