The secret to better skin may be in the bag—the teabag, that is.

Some of the same compounds in that have been linked to all kinds of other health benefits may also help clear up in adult women, according to newly published research.

Women ages 25 to 45 who had been diagnosed with moderate to severe acne were randomly divided into two groups for the study, which appeared inComplementary Therapies in Medicine. Each group was given a pill to pop three times a day for four weeks, with one group receiving capsules that contained 500 mg of green tea extract (decaffeinated), and the other swallowing placebos. At the end of the four weeks, women who took the extract had significantly less acne on their noses, chins, and around their mouths than the placebo group. (Bonus: The green tea group also lowered their total cholesterol numbers, too.)

The complexion-clearing effect is most likely due to the anti-inflammatory properties of compounds in green tea, specifically one called epigallocatehin gallate or EGCG. Since acne is often caused by inflammation, lotions and creams made with the antioxidant-rich extract can help prevent and treat minor breakouts. But the study results indicate that green tea supplements could be another, possibly stronger line of defense.

The amount the women in the study consumed is a lot stronger than your average cuppa, though—anywhere from four to 14 times as potent—so you might not be able to simply sip your way to smoother skin.
