First For Women
Simple secret to clear skin
When women with acne took a 1,500 mg decaffeinated green tea extract supplement, they had 17 percent less acne after 4 weeks than those given a placebo, say scientists in the journal Complementary Therapies in Medicine. The study authors say green tea’s EGCG, a potent antioxidant, cuts inflammation linked to acne. You can get the perks by sipping 12 oz. of green tea daily or taking a supplement (like Life Extension Decaffeinated Mega Green Tea Extract 725 mg, $23 for 100 capsules, lef.com/ffw).
