My Naked Face!

Hiya Everyone!

Today is the day, I am starting my green tea and water diet on an attack for the spots to be gone before my graduation!

This is me, in the morning - nothing on and nothing to hide the blemishes.
Now I know some of my friends will want to kill me at this point because honestly my skin is never that bad. I have a few huge recurring spot prone places such as the middle of my lips under my nose, my huge forehead and my eyebrows for some reason. Now this is going to be a huge experiment for me. 

From today on, I only allow myself 2 cups of tea/coffee a day, from then on it must be water or green tea. Now the reasoning behind this is the fact that milk and sweetener or sugar in tea can clog pores and create blemishes. I hate spots and I want to make sure that now I have finished my degree and my life is starting again, I want a clear start in every sense!

Now guys, if you want to join this please keep me involved on your twitters or your blogs and let me know how you go!

Green Tea, The Spot Remover!

Hiya Guys!

Today after this long time away, I'm going to tell you about a miracle that has really helped my skin blossom from a winter of spots to a spring that actually isn't looking too bad. 
So winter was really a bad time for my skin, it got really dry for a while and then I started smothering it in moisturiser which made it all of a sudden break out. I panicked because I've been hugely lucky with skin that isn't hugely prone to break outs. So when this started, I practically stopped my skin care routine and went for a approach which didn't clog my skin. 

Then, I was speaking to my friend who lives in China and asked her about spots and asking if there was any Chinese brands she would recommend because their skin was always flawless when I visited! She told me her secret was very much down to drinking no fizzy drinks, not wearing loads of make up and letting her skin breath. Now this is not a scientific approach, this is just something she credits her absolutely flawless skin too!

I went off to Cambridge Market with another friend and bought a LOT of green tea, different variations which were herbal and fragrant. This is Chinese Black Tea and has a woody, strong taste which can easily be drank without milk or sugar. Not only is this completely calorie free BUT it hydrates you quicker than water because it's heated and has lots of healthy anti oxidants which are proven to help your skin.

I started this of two weeks before my graduation and my skin was completely changed! Now I'm not just saying this, it hasn't got rid of my spots all together but it has stopped redness and the huge breakouts which were noticeable. I had lumps and bumps but nothing like how bad it was. I've gone home recently (as you can tell by my absence) and have got rid of this habbit. Now I'm going to attempt this again and in two weeks - i'll give you the results. 

What about you guys? Have you never tried them? 
Do you enjoy green teas?
