Ingredient Spotlight: Green Tea

Green tea has become hugely popular over the past few years. It’s known to be a healthier substitute to normal beverages like coffee and other types of tea, due to its lower caffeine levels. But green tea also delivers a multitude of other health benefits. From lowering cholesterol and blood pressure to stimulating hair growth and promoting healthier skin.

How Does Green Tea Actually Improve Skin Health?

Diminishes Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Green tea has antioxidants and tannins which help to help shrink blood vessels underneath the delicate skin around the eyes. As a result, swelling is reduced which in turn diminishes the appearance of puffy eyes. The vitamin K in green tea has skin lightening benefits to brighten under eyes and get rid of dark circles.

Tackles Signs of Ageing

It can help delay signs of skin ageing. The polyphenols in this ingredient help to neutralise harmful free radicals which cause significant damage to the skin and accelerate the ageing process. By neutralising free radicals it helps to avoid the skin’s collagen, elastin and protective barrier from being damaged. This as a consequence aids in the prevention of sagging skin, sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles.

In addition, green tea helps to keep skin looking younger and fresher by keeping skin hydrated and glowing.

Battles Blemishes

Anti-bacterial agents in green tea help to draw out impurities, reduce enlarged pores and fight acne-causing bacteria in the skin, preventing breakouts.  Plus, they even help to regulate hormone imbalances in the skin which can cause acne spots to appear. What’s more, the anti-inflammatory properties reduce inflammation and redness in the skin, which in turn diminish aggravating looking acne skin.
