I have been drinking grn tea for about 3 weeks now. I love the taste and feel energized when I drink it. The reason I started to drink it was actually for the tea bag itself. I put it on my face when my perioral dermititis flares up. Dries it up in a few days. I use the same tea bag all day long and just put it on my face whenever I have a minute.
I have to tell you all I have had Perioral Dermatitis for over 10 years on and off and only able to get rid of it by use of antibotics. I have tried EVERYTHING trust me! I can finally say after all these years that Liann from Australia was right, Green Tea cured my Perioral Dermititis! I simply drank the green tea (Yogi brand is my favorite) and then would constantly put a wet tea bag on my face as much as possible 5 or so bags a day maybe 30-40 times on the face a day and after about 2-3 days I started to see improvement and after about 10 days it was gone completely! Anyone who has had this Perioral Dermititis knows how hard it is to rid, so I am just so happy about these results I had to share. One other thing I think that helps is to stay away from sugar & starches. Sugar is a killer on the immunity. Thank you Lianne!!!!
I have had perioral dermatitis on and off for 5 or more years. I find that topical application of green tea is amazing. I keep a tea bag in the fridge after wetting it, and apply it as often as permits. At night I apply it liberally. Obviously there are limitations as your face will look green after you put it on, but you can wash it off at any stage. The perioral dermatitis just dries up after a few days. It's not perfect but better than antibiotics.
