There’s a reason that over 1.5 billion cups of tea are consumed each day. For over 4000 years, China and Japan built entire cultures around the rituals of the tea ceremony. Often called a “fountain of youth,” tea enjoys a reputation for health and longevity that is second to none.
We love the ritual of sipping a cup of green tea to enjoy all of its numerous internal health benefits- such as protection from cancer, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, and aiding in digestion. These are just a few of a laundry list of benefits enjoyed by including tea in your diet.
But, we also know from science that green tea, applied on the skin has many health-related beauty and anti-aging benefits.
The 5 Benefits of Green Tea for Skin Health- Inside and Out
Benefit # 1:
Drinking green tea may help protect skin from cancer by promoting DNA repair
Green tea contains a powerful antioxidant called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which fights DNA damage from UV rays. This has been shown to contribute to the prevention of skin cancer. Green tea blended into skin care products act as an anti-aging ingredient which may also help fight cellular damage.
Green tea is full of potent polyphenols called catechins
Polyphenols are micronutrients that we receive through certain plant-based foods. They're packed with beneficial and necessary antioxidants. Also, when applied to the skin, the catechins in green tea work to reduce irritation, redness, and swelling. That’s just one reason why we include green tea in our Restore Replenishing Night Cream. Since studies have shown the power of this one-two combination, we also add the potent properties of vitamin C to our green tea formulations . This is why while you sleep, Restore replaces moisture, feeds the skin with probiotics and vitamins, and gives your skin a dose of power-packed antioxidants.
Caffeine and tannins shrink blood vessels around the eyes
A life saver for mature skin, green tea extract rich Awaken Revitalizing Eye Serum reduces inflammation, redness, and puffy eye bags. It’s a lightweight, power-packed eye treatment that quickly absorbs deep into the eye area, reducing inflammation, redness, dark circles and puffy skin.
Green tea contains vitamins E and B2 and over 500 aromatic oils
Green tea oil added to skin products lead to firmer skin and an increased production of collagen. Vitamin E has been shown to keep skin soft and help with deep hydration.
Green Tea helps restore the balance of moisture to dry skin
Green tea oil penetrates quickly, leaving a smooth, non-greasy finish which is highly moisturizing, It can improve the appearance of wrinkles by softening them while protecting skin from the elements. With essential fatty acids such as “linoleic acid” It can also help minimize the appearance of scars. That’s why we include the raw, organic green tea oil in our Tranquility Hand Cream to provide maximum anti-aging skin benefits.
