Drink This Simple Beverage for Younger, Healthier Looking Skin!

If you are looking for the secret to younger, healthier-looking skin in 2022, perhaps you should look no further than teatime.

There is significant research that indicates the powerful antioxidants in tea – more specifically in green tea – can improve skin health. 

The health benefits of green tea have been known for centuries. In the 7th century, Japanese monks visiting China to study Zen Buddhism returned home with their new discovery of green tea’s wonderful healing properties. In the following centuries, drinking green tea became a staple for Japanese monks, imbuing them with energy and mental focus that enhanced their meditation.

Today, green tea has developed a stellar reputation for its high levels of antioxidants. But that’s not its only star quality; green tea’s health benefits also include detoxing, calming inflammation, and an ability to reduce blood pressure and cholesterol.

While these impressive green tea health benefits can be enjoyed by simply drinking it, applying green tea directly to the skin also has its perks. 

Here are six top reasons to use green tea for skin!

  1. Green tea fights skin cancer by promoting DNA repair. It contains a powerful antioxidant called EGCG, which fights DNA damage from UV rays to prevent skin cancer. That means it’s also a potent antiaging ingredient that combats signs of premature aging when ingested as well as applied topically.
  2. Green tea has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, thanks to its high content of polyphenols called catechins. The catechins in green tea reduce irritation, redness, and swelling. A green tea face mask is a great way to enjoy the benefits of green tea for the skin. This intensely hydrating face mask can reduce redness and soothe the skin.
  3. Green tea is a powerful antibacterial agent for treating acne and unclogging pores. Polyphenols in green tea damage bacterial membranes and fight against infection, meaning that it’s a useful tool for treating the bacterial growth that causes acne. It helps kill systemic bacterial inflammation for calm, clear skin.
  4. Green is an excellent source of vitamin B2 and vitamin E, both of which are found in the best antiaging skincare products. B2 plays an essential role in maintaining collagen levels for youthful skin structure and firmness. Vitamin E supports new skin cell growth and also acts as an intense hydrator for dry or imbalanced skin.
  5. Caffeine and tannins in green tea help shrink blood vessels around the eyes, making it a miracle for treating puffy eyes and dark circles. Find in creams or simply place used green tea bags under the eyes!
  6. The benefits of green tea for skin expand to your hair, too! Green tea leaf fibers have been proven to stimulate hair growth, as catechins and polyphenols stimulate cell turnover in hair follicles.
