Yes,but: There are also hormonal factors as well as bacterial infections which can affect your skin. If you are a woman, taking oral contraceptives may be helpful. Proactive which is available over the counter can be helpful. If not, see your physicians. Sometimes typical antibiotic therapy is required.

Need Info Please: I'm not aware of any benefit of green tea to the skin. A healthy lifestyle doesn't hurt of course. More information re the current problem you might be having is needed before a recommendation can be given. Please feel free to write again with your symptoms.

Hydration helps!: Hydration & anti-oxidants are excellent for skin health. You could add flax seeds & omega 3 fish oil for lubrication.

Yes Perhaps: All that you do if done consistently should help you, Good hydration and nutrition is the key!

Probably: Drinking plenty of fluid is good for hydration therefore keeping the skin moist, washing the face is also good but do not over do it , using a sun block may be a good idea when exposed to sun light for too long, good eating habit is not only good for the skin but good for health in general
