Anything that says organic and works for your skin I usually throw my money at (quite literally). The amount of money I have spent on face creams, soaps, and serums would probably buy two houses at this point. When you can find something that is not only cheap but helps my skin AND tastes good, well, I’m sold!

Tea has been known to help fight illnesses, boost immunity, aid in a restful night’s sleep, and help your overall health (including hair, skin, and nails). Here are a few herbal teas that are incredibly beneficial for that glowing complexion you want (and add a little honey to make it a sweet treat).

Chamomile Tea
Not only does this taste amazing, but it has fantastic properties for your body and your skin. Chamomile has been known to help relax your body to help you fall asleep. Sleep is the most crucial aspect of good skin that we sometimes forget about. Without a good night’s sleep, you can get dark circles and stress your body out to the point of acne and red irritated skin. You can drink this or put a couple of tea bags over your eyes to help reduce any red irritation or puffiness that comes with a lack of sleep.

This red tea has properties that have been used for hundreds of years. People believe that the flavonoids in the tea help fight off acne and eczema and can also slow down the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus some rooibos teas have magnesium which, not only helps aid in a night of restful sleep, but can also help balance hormones.

Jasmine Tea
Jasmine tea is probably my top pick out of all of these teas. It has a sweet floral taste and has helped me more than once in kicking strep throat at the beginning stages. Jasmine tea has a considerable amount of antibacterial and antiviral properties that boost your immune system as well as balancing hormones. When your hormones are balanced (and you aren’t fighting illness) your skin usually thanks you with a clear and healthy complexion.

A bonus for some? It can also help treat eczema and acne by reducing oil production for you oily girls and boys out there!

Green Tea
I feel like everyone knows how great this is like everyone knows about coconut oil or exotic named fruit. Green tea helps with weight loss, metabolism (which is the weight loss mainly), protects vision, promotes bone health, and the list goes on. When it comes to your skin, this tea contains sun-fighting agents that can reduce skin damage and slow down wrinkles. It also promotes healthy cells that help revive the dead skin cells on all our bodies.

Peppermint tea
Delicious, minty, and good for glowing skin! Peppermint tea aides in getting rid of dead skin cells which helps keep your skin glowing. It has also been known to boost estrogen levels which help fight acne and hormonal issues for some women. Again, if you suffer with oily skin, this is a tea for you! The properties in this tea might revive skin cells but it also helps slow the oil production in your skin.
