If you’ve got oily skin or if you’re prone to acne, this one’s for you! Peppermint tea is widely known to be helpful for an upset stomach, but did you know that it works wonders on your skin too? The menthol in the tea slows down oil production and encourages cell growth, which means it’ll help get rid of dead skin cells and your skin will remain glowing! 

 

Apparently, this tea can also boost oestrogen levels in your body, which may help combat acne.

When you don’t get quality sleep, you’ll see the effects on your skin. Chamomile tea has relaxing properties that promote deep sleep which is critical for your body to function well. It also contains quercetin, which protects your skin from sun damage.
