3 skin problems you may have can be answered by one thing sitting in your kitchen. Green Tea. Not only is green tea beneficial when you drink it, but it’s topical benefits are endless.
Green Tea has been proven to have significant anti-inflammatory properties, making it especially ideal for sensitive and irritable skin types (We love this natural solution). If you experience psoriasis, rosacea or acne, you may find the cooling, calming benefits of Green Tea helpful.
Green Tea is also used in many eye products for its de-puffing properties.
Vitamin K, antioxidants and tannins in Green Tea all work to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in the eye area. (Yes Please!)
Catchetins found in Green Tea contain anti-bacterial benefits that help to fight acne-causing bacteria, while anti-inflammatory properties also help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne. (No more ice-packs or frozen spoons)
Tannins in Green Tea act as an astringent, helping to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores. Research has also shown Green Tea is effective in treating the production of excess oil. (Music to our ears)
The components of Green Tea have been widely researched for their ongoing benefits. Green Tea was subsequently found to have effective anti-ageing properties, due to its antioxidant content, which fights free radical damage (A well-known contributor to accelerated ageing)
Antioxidants also encourage the healing of damaged skin cells, reducing the effects of environmental damage. (These are things like pollution, aircon and smoke)
So basically, Green Tea and all its benefits are like your skins super hero.
However, the taste is not our favourite, so we like to add fresh mint or lemon to our green tea when sipping it in Winter, and in summer why not try a green ice-tea and add a small amount of low calorie natural sweetener.
