Help For Mild Skin Conditions
By Angie Marker
I have a tip to add for those readers suffering from eczema, psoriasis or any mild skin condition (including mild cases of acne). Make a strong pot of redbush/rooibos tea and add it to your bath. Alternatively, you can apply a cooled used rooibos teabag to the affected area and let the tea dry on the skin, no rinsing.
Rooibos has brilliant anti-inflammatory and healing properties and is starting to gain recognition world wide. It is healthier than Green Tea as it is caffeine free and very low in tannin and has more anti-oxidants than green or black tea.
