Study Title:

Green Tea Holds Promise As New Treatment For Inflammatory Skin Diseases

Study Abstract

Green tea could hold promise as a new treatment for skin disorders such as psoriasis and dandruff researchers say. Researchers studied an animal model for inflammatory skin diseases, which are often characterized by patches of dry, red, flaky skin caused by the inflammation and overproduction of skin cells. Those treated with green tea showed slower growth of skin cells and the presence of a gene that regulates the cells' life cycles.
