3. It is Anti-Inflammatory
There are few things that are as annoying as having a big, red, inflamed acne breakout.
According to one 2013 study that had women take either a green tea extract or placebo daily for 4 weeks, those taking the green tea extract had significantly fewer inflammatory lesions than women taking a placebo.
There is a not a lot of evidence that green tea will completely stop pimples from forming, but according to this study, if pimples do form, they may be less red and inflamed.
