i have recently been drinking a lot of green tea (7-10 cups a day) I have noticed quite a significant change in the skin on my face. I used to have very soft smooth skin whereas now it's rough and texture but not dry - just not smooth anymore. I've tried to research and have discovered green tea contains a lot of flouride, could the sudden influx of flouride in my body effect my skin? Or could it be the caffiene? Thanks for any help!

    Green Tea acts as diuretic. It flushes out extra water and toxins which is why some people may see a loss in weight. If you drink too much, you're losing too much water and your symptoms correlate with those of dehydration.

    Oh, flouride is poisonous, hence why NO ONE should swallow toothpaste. Unfortunately its in the water we drink......sigh.

    No it is not right. You can use green tea to make your skin glow very much. In your case, drinking green tea excessively doesn't matter. Your skin became rought due to some other reasons. You can use green tea daily as you get so much benefits of green tea.

    Normally, the green tea doesn't effect our skin. Maybe the reason is the quality of the leave or your tasting habit.

    Because the modern society of environmental pollution is serious, there are unscrupulous businessmen in order to make tea look good, and easy to sell, they will add additive like pigment, fragrances or something else. So when you buy the tea need to pay attention to the your choice. And do not drink too much when drinking. It is better to drink light tea, overnight tea must not to drink for you.
