Did you know that you can use herbal tea for your skin to remove signs of aging, blemishes, irritations, and breakouts? Herbal tea can help protect and nourish your skin from the inside and the outside – and I’m going to give you some amazing tips that will help you transform the look and health of your skin in no time!
There are two ways to use herbal tea for your skin. The first is to simply drink and enjoy teas made from medicinal plants that make positive changes to the skin. The second is to use herbal tea as a skin tonic which is applied or massaged directly into the skin itself. If you’re like me, you may be interested in doing both at the same time!
Herbal Tea For Your Skin
Here are a few herbal teas that help support beautiful, healthy, clear skin all year long, for all skin types when taken as a tea…
Rose hips do an amazing job of fighting cell damage caused by free radicals, healing the tissues that make up the skin, and cleansing the skin organ. Rose has been used in many skin cleansers for centuries, and it is a gentle and effective way to give some serious love and attention to the largest organ you have!
This traditional tea is so packed with vitamins and minerals that help the skin, it’s no wonder many herbalists swear by it! Many skin issues are caused by a lack of proper nutrition, or a vitamin and mineral deficiency. Adding dandelion tea to your routine is a great way to remedy that.

It relieves inflammation, heals skin cell walls, cleanses toxins from the blood and skin, increases the firmness of skin tissues, and increases blood circulation to the skin’s surface. Who could ask for more? Nettle is one of my favorite go-to herbal teas because it seems to help every area of the body.
