Maybe I'm finally going Green...

Hey girls!

A quick update on my ongoing acne\skincare log and some new info that could help!
Well, this past week, it's been pretty darn rough. My face was like 'gahhhh I hate you!!'

Anyways *offtopic* so, yeah, this week was pretty rough acne wise.
And Daggonit...I picked. I know, I know, I'm HATING myself for it right now, but I hate looking at pimples...I would rather look at a scab, I really would.
Hypocritical of me, I know. It's a well known fact that the more you pick, the worse it is, and I agree with that. It's just a bad habit I have to break.Ugh.
But I continued with my routine, using my daily moisterizer when I get dry as paper, and of course I'm always researching things that work, and what the majoity of people like.
I have been mainly focusing on natural supplements, I really don't want to put anymore chemicals on my face.

One thing I cam across tonight that I hadn't heard before was green tea as an acne aide. There were many extremely positive reviews for green tea as an aide on, both as a drink, to help acne from the inside out,and applied topically.
Basically, many people have said that green tea is extremely good for you,filled with vitamins and antioxidants, that help flush out impurities, aide bodily functions, and even help you lose weight, and many people have found that it really helps skin problems too.
Most people have said that the most affective way of using green tea for acne is to drink, 1-3 cups a day on DECAF green tea. Caffenine is bad for your skin, and will make you break out more, so make sure it is decaffinated green tea. Now green tea has a pretty strong and unpleasent taste, so I am going to add a couple spoonfuls of honey, when i do get some green tea at the store next time.

Also, the tea can be applied topically, kind of like a toner, either by rubbing the tea bag, wet, of course, on your face, or even splashing your face with the tea.
I'll do another update in a week, I will have some green tea by then, and I'll let you know how it's working.

I'm not sure I can drink 1-3 cups of that stuff a day...I am not really that much of a drinker, which probably isn't a good thing, but that's how I am.
I hate the sloshy feeling of having so much water inside you. I drink..just definately as not as much as I'm supposed too. Maybe I'll try to work on that.
So that's something new I came across, and I'm excited that it's so easy,cheap, and all natural. I will definately keep you guys posted.

All my love, and God's Blessings Victoria <3
