Your skin has an elaborate antioxidant system to help it survive stressors, one of the biggest of which is UV sun exposure. Unfortunately, we know that chronic and excessive UV exposure often overwhelms your skin's antioxidant capacity resulting in premature aging, inflammation, and non-melanoma skin cancers. Topically applied high-quality, high-concentration green tea polyphenol antioxidants help boost DNA repair, which is a key step in preventing skin damage.

Dr. Cynthia Bailey Wants You to Know

The trick is getting enough of the hefty amounts of the right green tea compounds. Just adding "green tea" to a skin care product isn't good enough. You need high concentrations of the right polyphenol antioxidants to reap the benefits. Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy has the polyphenol antioxidant content of 500 cups of green tea in the 1oz container - and it's the "right stuff" including the compound EGCG (epigallocatechin 3-gallate) which is the major preventative antioxidant polyphenol component in green tea. I've used it in my dermatology practice for years and I've watched my patient's skin benefit. It's also one of the few skin care products that I use every day and I never travel without it.

In addition to green tea polyphenols, Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy contains caffeine (shown to augment the anti-cancer effectiveness), hyaluronic acid (to moisturize your skin), and resveratrol (the antioxidant that gives red wine its health benefits).

This professional-strength green tea cream is a key component in most of the facial skin care routines that I use to treat rosacea, facial dandruff (seborrheic dermatitis), and sun damage. I also use it to help my patients successfully tolerate irritating anti-aging skin care products like treatinoin (Retin A) and glycolic acid.

Who should use Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy? In my dermatology practice, I've found that everyone benefits from it. You have the most to gain from adding this product to your skin routine if:

  • You're really serious about using the best and most impactful anti-aging facial skin care.
    Studies have shown that these antioxidant ingredients can help protect the skin from free radical damage due to sun and environmental stresses. Free radicals damage skin, causing skin cancer and wrinkles. I recommend using this product along with your other wrinkle treatments - it belongs in any serious skin rejuvenation regimen.
  • You're at an increased risk for non-melanoma skin cancers.
    I believe that this professional-strength green tea cream can actually help prevent skin cancer. I've personally used it on my sun damaged facial skin every day for years and have thousands of my patients doing the same. In my practice, I find that skin cancer patients who use Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy actually form fewer precancerous lesions and skin cancers than before they began using the product. This sounds astounding, but scientific studies have shown that green tea polyphenol antioxidants applied to the skin together with caffeine actually reduce skin cancer formation.
  • You're struggling with facial inflammation and redness.
    I've seen this professional-strength Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream reduce facial redness and skin inflammation in thousands of patients. This includes people with rosacea, facial dandruff, acne, and redness from sun damage and irritating strong facial treatment products like Retin A or glycolic acid. In my opinion, this green tea product is at the very top of the list for the best rosacea skin care products made.
  • You are looking for a product that gives you a very light facial skin hydration.
    My Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy is formulated in a light textured cream that's loaded with hyaluronic acid. This makes it an excellent moisturizing alternative for those who don’t like a richer product feel on their skin. There is the slightest amount of sunflower oil in this lovely and antioxidant filled cream base. If you are extremely acne prone I recommend considering the Replenix CF Cream instead, which is entirely oil free.

Dr. Bailey Skin Care Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy layers nicely with your other skin care products. It's compatible with all the products at

Of course, there are millions of products on the multibillion dollar skin care market, but in my opinion, my professional-strength Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy Cream is absolutely the best of them all for antioxidant skin care!

Excellent product Review by Diane

I deal with allergy problems as well as rosacea redness and blemishes, so finding products that work and do not cause a reaction or breakouts always takes time to research, try out on other areas to see if I react, and then actually use the product for long enough to determine whether it really works. While this is expensive, I believe this has helped considerably with redness on my cheeks and also seems to be calming down the irritation that has been wreaking havoc with my forehead. I am not to the point where I can say this has completely stopped any problems, but this certainly seems to be a major step in the right direction. I really like the rotating cap dispenser! The only change I would make to the packaging would be to make it possible to see how much product is left - since it takes about a week to arrive, I really don't want to get to the last pump before I re-order. If you have rosacea, this is definitely a product you will want to try. This really absorbs quickly into your skin much better, for me, than moisturizers.

Helpful Product! Review by Shannon

I have super sensitive skin + rosacea so trying new products can be rather scary for me. If it doesn't go well, my rosacea gets triggered and I am dealing with a week of inflammation and pain before things settle down. But I decided to try this product because I have learned so much from Dr. Bailey's posts about rosacea. I'm happy to say I had no trouble with this serum and I do believe it's an important part of my skincare routine. I wish it completely healed rosacea.... but the next best thing is finding products that make it easier to live with rosacea. This serum definitely does that. Thanks, Dr. Bailey!!

Excellent moisturizer Review by Nicole

This moisturizer is one of the best I have ever used. It is super gentle and very moisturizing without being greasy at all. It absorbs completely and makes my face feel soft and hydrated. It does not irritate my touchy and reactive skin! I have dealt with acne, rosacea, and seborrheic dermatitis in recent years, but all are definitely under control with the use of this moisturizer. So happy to have found this product.

Worth every penny Review by Tierney

This amazing product saved my skin. I was at my wits end with my rosacea and seborrheic dermatitis because nothing was helping my red, dry flakey skin...until this! Within days I started to see a decrease in the flakes and within 2 weeks I had happier, healthier, supple looking skin again. THANK YOU, Dr. Bailey, for this miracle product. It’s truly worth the price for the results!

Love it! Review by Kristina

Love this stuff! Really helps with reducing redness in the skin. Does a great job with calming the skin. Sometimes I get overzealous with my anti-aging products and this really helps my reactive skin. I have a girlfriend who suffered from redness and easily irritated skin and I recommended this product and this had helped her greatly. She uses it daily now.

Lifesaver Review by Meesh

This product is worth it. Even though it's a bit pricey for an everyday product - I have come to know that this price is a true reflection of its lab costs and super high quality ingredients. It really feels formulated with care and thoughtfulness. This is the only product I have found to consistently get rid of red flaky skin from seborrheic dermatitis. When I run out I can see the difference in my skin...I am so grateful for the magic of this product. And every time I put it on I think it's so cool that the active ingredient is mainly highly concentrated caffeine (green tea)!
