Tea Time!


There are many teas out there know for there detoxifying and antioxidant properties.  When I began to suffer with hormonal, cystic acne in my early 20's I was willing to try anything and everything to help heal my skin.  Topical anti inflammatory creams are great and do temporarily help with those raised nuisances better known as pimples.  But, the only way to get rid of them and get rid of them for good is to get to the root of the problem.  That entails cleansing from within.  A healthy, clean diet is always a good decision as well as drinking plenty of water. Eliminating dairy from your diet can also help.  What I cam to learn was that those pimples and cystic acne underneath the skin were not caused by my daily skin regimen or make-up but by what was goin on with me eternally.  When your blood and liver are full of toxins and need to be purified it can cause different issues with your skin hair and nails. So, after doing my research I discovered one of the best ways to clean your blood and liver is milk thistle.  It is a herbaceous plant that has anti-inflammatory, detoxifying herb that will help with various skin conditions such as acne and you can sip it in a tea!  Some benefits include:

- Helps to get rid of pimples, zits, eczema and acne
- Promotes radiant and glowing skin
- Prevents skin flare-ups
- Hydrates and softens skin
- Prevents skin cancer and photo-aging
- Delays aging
- Strengthens and protects hair follicles
- Prevents hair loss
- Repairs existing damage to the liver
- Helps recover from cirrhosis

Now, as with anything you consume or apply topically to the skin the results will very with each individual person.  There are different ways to take advantage of the benefits of milk thistle:
- Tea
- Diluted Tincture
- Seeds in powder form

I prefer to drink the tea. It's best to drink it after you have eaten as it's a little strong and might irritate your belly if it's empty.
