Skin DeTox: Tea Talk


If you are a watcher of the awesome BenjiManTV on YouTube, you would know about his Tea Tuesdays videos. I am an occasional tea drinker—meaning, I drink tea whenever we dine in at Chinese restaurants and stuff like that. Seeing Benji’s videos made everything much more exciting to try out! It’s amazing how many variants there are of tea.

I started looking around for tea to try out in December, and of course the first place I landed on was my favorite Healthy Options! They have this whole shelf full of tea! I think there are over 50 types of tea in there.

I picked up the Skin DeTox by this brand called Yogi.

Skin DeTox—Helps Purify the Skin | 100% Natural/Herbal Tea | Contains 16 tea bags

“Our skin reflects our diet and lifestyle choices: it’s the mirror to internal health. It’s just as essential to cleanse from the inside; by reducing internal impurities, you can have clearer, glowing skin. Yogi Skin DeTox was formulated to support a healthy skin care regimen by shedding impurities. Fragrant Rose Petal and Hibiscus, used in Ayurveda to cool and soothe the skin, entice the senses with a fresh, floral scent. Traditional liver-cleansers Burdock and Yellow Dock combined with ancient “blood-cleansing” Red Clover help purify the skin, and Organic Green Tea rejuvenates with an antioxidant boost. Discover beauty from within in a deliciously cleansing tea.”


I’d drink this tea twice a day, one in the morning, and another cup before I go to bed. I haven’t really seen drastic changes on my skin, given that I tend to work really late at night and go to bed at around 3AM/4AM/5AM. Nevertheless, drinking this tea played a huge role in calming my nerves and giving me an overall sense of relaxation. I don’t think any other beverage would give me the same feeling.

Another think I love the most about my Yogi tea? They have quotes on the tea bag handles!!!


A box of this tea cost me PHP 240++ for 16 tea bags. I haven’t repurchased from Healthy Options because for the past month I have been drinking tea from Chinatown—the kind which you really have to brew [tea leaves] before drinking them (without the tea bags).

Drinking tea is really something everyone should make a habit of. The benefits of tea are endless! I still have a lot to try out.

What kind of tea do you drink?
