Green Tea for your skin
Green tea contains powerful antioxidants that protect your skin against sun damage, reduce redness, as well as improve hydration, thickness, and elasticity. Antioxidants protect and fight against free radicals in your body.
How does it work?
Free radicals are unstable molecules that form in the body during metabolism or by exposure to toxins in the environment such as smoke or ultraviolet light. Free radicals can break down our skin’s collagen and cause wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and saggy skin.
The powerful compounds found in green tea are polyphenols, also called flavonoids, and are micronutrients that we get from plant-based foods. The flavonoid that helps skin is catechin and it works to improve the health of your skin in several ways.
