You may have known that green tea can give you brighter, tighter skin, the natural antioxidants do wonders for your complexion, but did you know that most herbal teas have similar beauty advantages?

Black tea fights free radicals, rooibos clears up acne, and the caffeine in mate helps minimize puffiness. The beautiful part of t all is that you don't even have to drink these tinctures to get all the good-skin effects. You can slather them all over your face or take a soak in the leaves instead.

These are a few handy uses of tea for our skin:

Dry skin: You could DIY your own tea-infused face scrub. Simply boil the leaves and mash up with fruits like pear, to form goo. Rub all over affected areas.

Dull skin: Kusmi Tea BB Detox  is your classic Monday morning must have after a weekend of partying and imbibing. The blend is a mix of mate and green tea with the flavor of grapefruit. This concoction is packed with antioxidants like vitamins A and C.

Itchy skin: Osmia Organics Tea Bath is the grown-up version of that an oatmeal bath. The mix contains epsom salt, chamomile, spearmint, and oats to soften rough patches. It's perfect for women suffering from eczema also.

Oily skin: In addition to the antioxidant benefits, tea can also have astringent and antibacterial properties. The Maijan Clarify Healing Herbal Facial Steam has chamomile, rosemary, lemon grass, and eucalyptus to detox oily skin. Just pour the leaves in a bowl of hot water, and let the steam flow over your face under a towel.
