Antioxidants like polyphenols help fight against bacterial membranes and infection, which aids in the treatment of acne. It also lessens skin redness and irritation.

    Green tea face masks are filled with antioxidant qualities and help in healing inflammation and irritated skin. It also helps decrease skin redness which is commonly caused by heat, irritation, and sun exposure.

    2. Reduces Sebum Production

    Sebum is the greasy substance secreted by sebaceous glands that helps in forming a protective layer of moisture on your skin. On the other hand, those with oily skin produce too much sebum, which results in acne and pimples on their skin. Using a green tea face mask can help reduce excess oili on your skin by the reducing sebum production.
