I’ll have Another! Teas & Botanicals for the Prettiest Skin

Here are some “no sweat” and delicious ways to make your skin even more beau-tea-ful while having a refreshing glass of iced tea.

For brewing instructions, head to our post here!

9. Rooibos

Rooibos is chock-full of antioxidants, as well as zinc. The antioxidants nothofagin, aspalathin, and superoxide dismutase all protect against free radicals. Plus, rooibos is rich in AHAs - so feel free to brew it up or even use it as a gently exfoliating toner.

8. Rhodiola Rosea

We’ve written about adaptogens before — and of course there’s nothing that makes the skin prettier than less stress! This plant is also rich in polyphenols and proanthocyanidans, which help fight premature aging.

7. Dandelion Tea

Dandelion tea supports the liver function and its mild diuretic properties keep toxins flowing out of your body, which benefits your entire system, including your skin. Used topically, Dandelion can help speed up the healing process (lessening the likelihood of scarring). Its anti-inflammatory properties make it a perfect decoction for any skin conditions.

6. Burdock

Burdock root supports multiple systems of detoxification, as well as the circulatory system — which has a direct impact on the skin. Sipping this root helps the body fight acne and exczema and improves skin texture. Burdock also has a storied medical history — for thousands of years, Burdock root has been a traditional cure for rashes, excema, and psoriasis. Burdock is also rich in antioxidants and flavonoids like quercitin.

5. Green Tea OR Matcha
