Why we love green tea 🍃

Green tea, the brew that’s good for you, inside and out! Reduce premature ageing, soothe acne and brighten your complexion, all at once.

Green tea, scientifically known as Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, has been hailed for its numerous health benefits, including boosting metabolism, improving brain function, and even reducing the risk of chronic diseases like cancer and diabetes… but did you know green tea is also AMAZING for your skin?

That’s right, when applied topically, green tea can work wonders for a huge number of complexion concerns.

Green tea reduces premature ageing

Green tea is loaded with antioxidants, which help to protect the skin from free radical damage. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells, leading to premature ageing and an increased risk of skin cancer.

The antioxidants in green tea help to neutralise these free radicals, preventing them from causing harm to the skin!

Calms inflammation & improves moisture retention

Inflammation is a natural response to injury or infection, but when it becomes chronic, it can damage the skin and lead to premature ageing. Green tea contains compounds called catechins, which have anti-inflammatory properties. These catechins help to reduce inflammation in the skin, keeping it healthy and youthful.

Green tea is also a great moisturiser for the skin. Compounds called polyphenols help to improve moisture retention, keeping skin hydrated and preventing dryness and flakiness.

Green tea soothes acne

Green tea is both antibacterial and anti-inflammatory. It’ll prevent infection while calming redness and irritation. Additionally, green tea contains Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCG), which has been shown to inhibit the production of sebum, a type of oil that can clog pores and lead to acne. Cute.

Reduces the Appearance of Dark Circles and Puffiness

The caffeine and tannins in green tea can help to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness under the eyes. These compounds help to constrict blood vessels, leaving you with the bright and breezy complexion you deserve.

All in all, its high antioxidant content, anti-inflammatory properties, moisturising effects, acne-fighting abilities, and dark circle-reducing properties make green tea an excellent addition to any skincare routine. That’s why we’ve slipped it in a few of our cornerstone products!
