Hi guys, i just hear that some fruits and flower tea are good for the skin. Fox example, Black Tea contains rich nutrition and it can nourish the skin; Chrysanthemum could whiten skin and remove wrinkles. Lavendor has calming effect which can release pressure and solve the insomina problem; Aloe can keep the skin moisture, shiny and smooth; Peony can prevent aging skin; Rose can effectively remove acne, and so on. Is there anyone who have tried to use the essence liquid of the above plants for skin care? Is it work? We need your help. Many thanks.

Hello, cyrus.
I think green tea is the best choice for beauty-conscious tea-drinkers. It contains polyphenols that are potent antioxidants. White tea is just as healthy. It comes from the same plant as green tea, but the leaves are picked and harvested in an earlier phase. The flavour of white tea is lighter and sweeter than green tea.

I don't know much about the teas you mention, cyrus, but lots of teas with fruits, berries and herbs are good for our skin and health. My favorites are cinnamon tea, ginger tea, raspberry tea and blueberry tea, in addition to green and white tea.

Hi Cyrus,

Did you mean to use these flowers etc for application to the skin or as a tea? There are many organic and natural skin care ranges out there that have some of the ingredients in them that you mention. I am a firm believer in the ability of herbs and plants in curing and helping various complaints, but you must do your research first.

If you are looking to make your own skin care products then maybe take a look at the DIY thread here on EDS for some hints and recipes.
If it is teas that you are interested in then by googling herbs and their uses you will find a wealth of information about their uses - it is amazing what we have at our finger tips! Smile

I was also unsure whether you were talking about the utilization of teas and herbs externally or internally. Green tea may definitely benefit your skin both by drinking it and applying it topically. That said, I agree with sal-star. Do your research before experimenting with herbs, flowers and essential oils in skin care. Smile

All I can say is that I've played around with similar natural plant extracts and in the end I found that it wasn't effective as products you purchase online or in stores.

I think the main problems are that it's hard to determine how much to use, how the effectively let the substance penetrate into the skin, how long to keep it for, what to dilute or dissolve it in, etc. In the end, it wasn't worth all the time and effort...well, at least for me!

I saw people put rose buds in their tea wondered about the same thing - how does drink rose tea help with health, or anhthing at all? or just make the tea smell good?
