Green tea has developed quite a strong reputation for its high levels of antioxidants. But that’s not its only remarkable quality.
Green tea health benefits can be enjoyed from both drinking and applying it on the skin. It is beneficial to all skin types; oily, dry, aging, sensitive, etc.
Well known for its versatility, green tea can be used to make face mask, eye mask, toner, cleanser, lip, face and body scrub. It can be mixed with lemon, honey, baking soda, essential oils and can also be used on its own.
Some of the popular benefits of green tea to the skin are:
It fights skin cancer and aging:
Green tea fights skin cancer cells, whether it is ingested or applied topically, by promoting DNA repair. Green tea has a powerful antioxidant content (EGCG) that fights DNA damage from UV rays to prevent skin cancer.
With that property, it also serves as a potent anti-aging ingredient that combats signs of aging when ingested or applied topically.
It has anti-inflammatory properties:
Green tea is very well known for its anti-inflammatory properties, due to its high content of polyphenols called catechins. The catechins in green tea reduce skin irritation, redness, and swelling.
It is an antibacterial agent:
Green tea is a very powerful antibacterial agent for treating acne and unclogging pores. Polyphenols in green tea damages bacterial membranes and fights against infections.
This makes it a useful tool for treating bacterial growths that cause acne. Green tea also helps to kill systemic bacterial inflammation for smoother, toned skin.
It contains Vitamin B2 & E:
Green tea is packed with Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, which are both essential for healthy skin. Vitamin B2 plays a 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 soft and nourished skin.
It prevents eye bags and dark circles:
The caffeine and tannins content in green tea helps shrink blood vessels around the eyes, making it a good treatment for puffy eyes and dark circles.
