Green tea is one of my favorite beverages. I can drink it hot or cold, sweetened or unsweetened and it still tastes yummy too. To make things even better, green tea is well-known for a number of beauty and health benefits that you can take advantage of.
This article focuses on how green tea keeps us looking beautiful, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the amazing health benefits that it boasts. Green tea contains antioxidants that help to improve blood flow and lower your cholesterol and blood pressure. Now on to the beauty benefits!
Use As Facial Toner
Energize your skin with a green tea toner. Brew your tea and after it has cooled, pour it into a spray bottle and spritz your face.
The epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) compounds in green tea reactivates any cells that may be damaged from the sun, poor lifestyle habits and exposure to sunlight. In addition to reactivating and healing those cells, the antioxidants in green tea help to ward off premature aging and wrinkles.
Reduces Puffy Eyes
Using chilled tea bags, create a green tea compress to reduce puffy eyes and dark circles. Green tea is full of Vitamin K, which combats eye puffiness.
Green tea contains the antioxidant catechin, an anti-bacterial agent that inhibits acne-causing bacteria. It also helps to reduce redness and inflammation. You can benefit from catechin by applying a green tea facial mask.
