Blotchy skin is a common complaint in Asian country. What are the causes?
Cumulative sun damage causes premature aging and pigment formation, this result in sun and age spots. Some people are genetically predisposed to pigmentation like freckles, while melasma ( “the mask of pregnancy”) is due to hormonal changes. Another unique feature of Asian skin is post inflammatory hyperpigmentation in which the skin darkens after injury from, for example, too strong an acid peel. I encounter these conditions daily in my practice.
Some doctor would need to assess with their patient and discuss the possible options and outcomes. Using a good sun-block will definitely prevent worsening of the pigmentation. You can use creams — a good start although the results are slow.

Step 1 : Water For Tea
Bottled spring water that’s low in calcium. Calcium and chlorine in tap water affect
the natural taste of tea.
Step 2: Water Temperature
Avoid using boiling water — it damages the leaves, affects its aroma and flavor, and reduces the nutrients. The recommended water temperatures for black and oolong tea are 90 to 95 degrees C; for green, yellow and white tea, it is below 70 Celsius.
Step 3: Pre-Brew
Insert a tea strainer into the teapot and rinse with boiling water. Place a teaspoon of tea per cup into the warmed strainer. Let it stand for a few minutes to let the steam develop the leaves’ aroma. Pour in the hot water to start brewing. Read the rest of this entry »

It also has the highest caffeine level at about 3%. The best black teas are the young shoots of each branch, with silver or golden tips.
Popular for antioxidant properties, the taste ranges from refreshing and mild, to grassy and full-bodies. The golden yellow brew is the most natural tea – freshly plucked leaves are dried and packed without being oxidized; it retains its green color as chlorophyll is not broken down.
