Life-changing benefits of green tea, the makeup industry does not Want you to Know
Green Tea has been a cult for more than a decade now. The Asians and the vegan culture has been raving about its benefits from adam. When it comes to our fancy matcha lattes, we get it but we are here to tell how your adding green tea to your skincare can be LIFE-CHANGING
1. Anti-Ageing: Green Tea is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin C, B and E. It prevents premature ageing by improving skin elasticity hence, slows down skin ageing which may sometimes be caused by free radical damage.
2. Removes Acne and Blackheads: Green tea is especially rich in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), a substance that can reduce oily skin and acne. Due to its anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, green tea is the most effective way to treat acne and blackheads. It removes acne producing bacteria and reduces sebum production, that clogs the pore and often leads to irritated skin.
3. Clears clogged pores: Green tea is one of the least oxidized teas and has ample tannins, polyphenols and flavonoids. If used in a facemask with ingredients such as lemon and honey, it can clear out clogged pores, leaving behind a glow from within the look.
4. Exfoliator: Green tea is an excellent exfoliator. After drying the green tea, you can crush and scrub directly onto your skin. The leaves are excellent for removing damaged skin from dirt, oil and pollution in addition to reviving skin cells. Unlike other scrubbers and exfoliator, this natural ingredient has a soothing effect on your skin
