Fresh Faced Skin Tea

Problem skin doesn’t have to be a problem. Drink this tea throughout the day and you will give your skin an internal makeover.
This wonderful formulation hits all the marks. It contains the herbs Calendula, Hearts Ease and Redclover to stimulate the lymphatic system which is great for clearing congested skin problems like acne, eczema and psoriasis. Nettle and Horsetail provide silica, magnesium and trace minerals that help to feed the skin from the inside. Soluble silica is thought to stimulate collagen formation so is a great anti-aging addition to any skin care regime. Licorice, Nettle and Calendula are potent natural anti-inflammatory herbs that act similarly to steroids -without the side effects. This reduces redness, puffiness and itching from the skin. Liver tonic Chen Pi is added to complete this potent mix, a herb that has been used traditionally to clear the skin, eyes and wrinkles between eyebrows.
