With the colder months upon us, there’s nothing like relaxing with a piping hot mug of tea… Did you know that Green Tea isn’t only a healthy and delicious drink to decompress with, but it is full of amazing ingredients that benefit skin and hair as well? You didn’t? Well…it does! While most people know that Green Tea is filled with antioxidants that promote anti-aging and reduce acne, a lot of people don’t know about the other cool benefits of using green tea skin products. Green Tea is a popular ingredient in the best skincare products and here is a quick list of why:
The anti-bacterial catechins in green tea can help to soothe acne by reducing hormone activity. Green Tea also has amazing qualities that help to revitalize skin and produce an overall better skin complexion.
The antioxidants in green tea go a long way when it comes to preventing wrinkles. A lot of wrinkles are also due to sun damage, which Green Tea also treats… More on that in just a bit…
Green tea or green tea products can do wonders for hair. Not only does it stimulate hair growth from a component called epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, that exists in green tea, but it also improves luster and strength when directly applied to hair.
Protects Skin From Sun Damage:
Green Tea has lots of catechins, which improve the productivity of superoxide dismutase (a chemical the body produces to fight off the skin damaging effects of free radicals from the sun) and promotes anti-aging while reducing sun damage. The antioxidants in green tea work well in tandem with sunscreen, neutralize UV light, and prevent inflammation.
Dealing with Psoriasis is no fun. Research has shown that green tea may have some beneficial effects on the symptoms that come along with having psoriasis. Green Tea helps to relieve redness and irritation while helping to slow down the production of excess skin.
Another skin condition that people are often searching for cures for is Rosacea. The redness that comes along with rosacea can be helped from the calming effect and antioxidants that green tea has.
Hydration is an important part of skin health. Drinking green tea is a great, healthy, and tasty way to be sure that you get your recommended eight glasses of water a day.
Although this may seem a little far away from skin care – it’s actually not. Stress has a hugely negative effect on skin and can often physically manifest itself as acne, wrinkles, or advanced aging. Green tea helps to reduce stress as it has been known to have a calming effect.
Moral of the story is…green tea is great! Drink it, rub it on your skin, and put it in your hair! You can’t go wrong when it comes to green tea.
