Drinking Tea can Improve your Eczema

 You are probably already aware of the many benefits linked to drinking certain types of teas. But, did you know that some of them can improve certain skin conditions such as eczema? Well, first off, understand that this is a skin condition with different triggers and symptoms that are commonly marked by red patches, scaling, inflammation and itching.

 It is caused by a compromised immune system, environmental triggers and genetics. Although it is not completely cured, it can be managed to reduce its symptoms. OTC treatments such as antihistamines and topical ointments are often used to treat the condition. Sond beauty products, on the other hand, have taken the skincare industry by storm, and can suppress the effects of underlying skin conditions.

However, natural remedies such as the use of tea-and-coffee are also used as organic skincare remedies for additional benefits that carry low health risks. In this blog post, we give you a tried and tested guide and tips for the best natural teas to take if you have severe underlying skin conditions. These are made from different flowers and plants. So, what is the best tea for your condition? Find out in this blog post.

Best Teas

The first thing you need to tell apart when it comes to teas for skincare is their distinction. Oolong, green and black teas are classified as leaf teas and are made from the Camellia Sinenses tea plant. Apart from these traditional teas, we also have herbal ones, commonly used in organic skincare products.

Green Tea

Green tea is scientifically proven to contain antioxidants that ward off inflammation and strengthen the immune system. It has also been proven to improve skin illnesses, including psoriasis when taken orally, used in a bath or a natural moisturiser.

The reason is that it has high levels of polyphenols that are excellent at neutralising free radicles and repairing damaged cells. It is, however, important to note that although it offers multiple anti-inflammatory benefits, it is a tea-and-coffee beverage because it also contains caffeine, which may cause sleep disturbances.

Oolong Tea

This is a staple in the Chinese pantries and tastes like a mix between bitter green tea and robust black tea. In Japan, people with this underlying skin condition were subjected to three cups of oolong tea as part of their eczema diet in 2001 by scientists and reported to have felt relief from itching. Out of the 118 patients with atopic dermatitis, 74 of them showed moderate improvement.

It is important to note that oolong tea is made from the same plant as the green tea. The difference is that oolong tea has semi-fermented leaves while green tea has minimally fermented ones.

Scientists believe that the positive effects presented by this tea are a result of its richness in antiallergic properties. The study demonstrates that the condition can be eased by drinking oolong tea instead of using tea extract based natural moisturiser or beauty creams.

Camomile Tea

From clearing skin problems to soothing insomnia, this little daisy works magic on the human body. Underneath its delicate size and flavour, this flower is a potent powerhouse that is explored by many fashion products, including sond skin. Camomile tea is organic, 100 percent free of GMOs and gluten and is cruelty free, suitable for the vegetarian, vegan and kosher.

What are some of the benefits of camomile tea, you might ask? Well, a lot of people swear by camomile tea, which makes sense, given that it is prevalent in many sond skin products. This tea contains an aromatic chemical compound known as chamazulene that possess analgesic, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. Not only is it steeped with skin benefits but health too.

It promotes sleep and treats insomnia, thereby impacting skin health positively, boosts immunity, reduces muscle spasms, soothes inflammation, reduces stress, lightens and clears the skin. This tea has flavonoids with potent inhibitory effects on free radicals and is the best for sensitive skin.

Choosing the Best Tea for your Sensitive Skin

If you consider these tips to minimise the effects of your skin condition, it is vital that you pay close attention to their side effects. In this blog post, for instance, we mentioned that green tea is raw, meaning it can upset your tummy. If your tummy doesn’t feel good after taking it, you may want to switch to an alternative such as oolong or camomile.

Oolong tea, on the other hand, is caffeinated, meaning it can cause headaches, irregular heartbeat, sleep problems and nervousness. Camomile has rare side effects and is quite safe for almost everyone. Some of its side effects include drowsiness when taken in large doses, and can also cause nausea in people allergic to plants in the daisy family.

Out of the listed herbal teas in this guide, the benefits of camomile tea give it a top pick. Not only is it cruelty free with no GMOs, but it is also the best bet for the vegetarian and vegan person, as well as those who do not appreciate caffeinated beverages. This tea has been used for years to treat skin conditions such as eczema topically to relieve dry and patchy skin. Its extract is also common in fashion products such as sound.
