Skin Loves

... nettle tea :) Super rich in vital nutrients for skin purifying, this herbal tea is one of the best herbal tonics for skincare!
Many of the benefits are due to the plant's very high levels of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, silica, iodine, silicon, sodium, and sulfur. Nettles are also a good source of vitamin C, protein, beta-carotene, B complex vitamins, plus high levels of easily absorbable amino acids.
Drinking 2-3 cups of nettle tea a day will help promote clearer skin by cleansing your system to release trapped waste, which otherwise may surface as skin problems & blemishes.
Nettle tea also reduces the bodys release of histamines, so can help with skin inflammation & is soothing on eczema-prone skin.


  1. Oh, I totally agree! I started drinking nettle tea last week and I have already seen improvements which may be due to the benefits of the tea plus the combination of the neem and chocolate masks :)

  2. Thanks for the tip. My mum's skin is very sensitive, so this could be great for her.
