"Ever met somebody whose skin was completely flawless and radiant? I know, I’ve wished for nicer skin many times in this lifetime. Whether it was pimples and acne in my teens, cystic pimples in my twenties and now moving on in age (save that for another blog post shall we?) the signs of wrinkles and ageing are etching their way in. What’s more, do the pimples ever stop?

Sometimes, more than often, simple works. And when it comes to skin, it’s useful to know that it’s not just what we apply on the outside but equally what we do on the inside that is the icing on the cake! This stunning mix of herbal ingredients will have your skin glowing to its best ability in no time because we are caring for your insides.

I'd like to talk about the ingredients in Skin Herbs Tea and how they have traditionally been used for consumption.

Aloe vera is a common house hold name known for its cleansing and clearing abilities. It helps to nourish and rejuvenate the skin, meaning not only does it go to work on feeding your skin but equally to hydrate, clear heat (think cystic, sore pimples) and drain away any inflammation. It achieves all this by its unique ability to drain heat via urination.

Licorice root and lotus seed hearts are also two helpful herbs. Licorice root is harmonizing and nourishing. Because it is sweet in flavor it works on digestion (and that’s were it all begins!), it aids the spleen and stomach in assimilating nutrients. Sometimes when our gut health is compromised we can’t adequately utilize the nutrients we consume, because our bodies can’t happily digest. If we can’t use the fuel from food, then our bodies miss out on a nutrient level meaning we may experience more acne flare ups simply because the body is missing elements that are vital to nourish skin. This is equally important for creating good hormone balance. Hormones can be the contributing factor to poor skin, especially for those who find themselves breaking out around the period time. Lotus seed is equally important in aiding digestion and ironing out the creases seen in hormone imbalance.

Jasmine is particularly cooling and calming, helping to drain and dry out puss accumulations and help to generate new skin – this is useful to assist in treating and preventing scarring.

It’s important to consider diet and lifestyle factors in the quest for healthy, glowing skin. After all, the health of your skin starts from within!".

With Love,
Your Tea
