Pompton Plains, NJ, December 04, 2006 --(PR.com
)-- Recent results of a study presented to the American Academy of Dermatologists and conducted by Dr. Jennifer Gan-Wong of the Memorial Medical Center in the Phillipines find that green tea topically applied to the skin appears to work as well as benzoyl peroxide to control acne. Meanwhile, Ryan and Jill Cote of http://www.ChinaDollSkin.com were analyzing pore-purifying astringent techniques themselves and decided to form a partnership with Tiffany Lauren® to provide a natural solution to effectively treat acne-prone skin with the Acne Treatment Skin Care System.
An article that appeared in the August issue of the Archives of Dermatology quotes Hasan Mukhtar, PhD and his colleagues, who say that, "There may be some green tea benefits in the human skin products." Mukhtar's credentials include being a professor, as well as the director of research, in the dermatology department at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. Extensive research proves green tea to be a potent antioxidant that is rich in catechin polyphenols, particularly epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which fights bacteria and offers about twenty times the free radical scavenging effects of Vitamin C. The Pore-Purifying Astringent available at ChinaDollSkin.com as part of the Tiffany Lauren® Acne Treatment Skin Care System contains green tea, which fights bacteria, reduces the risk of blackheads and breakouts, improves pore texture and color clarity and neutralizes excess oil.
According to the book by Nadine Taylor, Green Tea: The Natural Secret for a Healthier Life, green tea has been used in China for its benefits for over 4,000 years as a medicine. Green tea effectively reduces inflammation and redness to the skin, detoxifies, speeds healing and even deters hormonal activity shifts to help prevent acne. The Pore-Purifying Astringent distributed by ChinaDollSkin.com counteracts visible irritation from AHAs, soothes redness and leaves the skin soft, smooth and perfectly balanced. This incredible astringent is part of the Tiffany Lauren® Acne Treatment Skin Care System, which also offers a Gentle Enzyme Peeling Cream, Shine Free Solution, Rescue Gel, Zinc and Sulphur Face Mask, and Pore Clearing Cleanser. A convenient alternative is a selection of five small sizes of these products in the Visibly Clear Starting Over Tote.
