Here’s yet another thing that tea can help you do- improve your skin health! There’s a reason why plenty of the best skin care products in the market contain elements of tea in them. The antioxidants and nutrients in tea don’t just lead to a healthier body internally, but also externally! After all, when you’re healthy on the inside, it shows on the outside.
So, which are the best teas to help you achieve clear, radiant and glowing skin? Read on to find out!
White tea is taken from the youngest leaves of the plant and is the least processed of all teas, making it the purest form of tea. Unlike black or green teas, white tea does not undergo processing but is immediately steamed after picking. Hence, it is able to retain most of the antioxidants in it. White tea helps to combat wrinkles, replenish skin firmness/elasticity as well as eliminate sun damage. All in all, this tea rejuvenates and revives tired looking skin.
Like many other teas, rooibos is rich in flavanoids which are antioxidants. The health benefits of rooibos are numerous. Regular consumption can help boost immunity, improve cardiovascular health and even treat respiratory symptoms. Not only that, rooibos tea is a star-player in many anti-ageing skin care products. It helps to protect the skin, thereby maintaining a more youthful look. It’s also rich in vitamin D and zinc that help to correct hormonal imbalances which are often triggers to acne.
If you’ve read our previous blog post, you would’ve seen the vast number of benefits that green tea has. Adding to that list, is its ability to bring a healthy glow to your skin! Like rooibos, green tea is also commonly found in skin care products especially moisturisers and facial masks. The antioxidants in green tea help to fight off free radicals that can damage the skin. It’s also able to reduce inflammation caused by a variety of reasons including stress, hormones and allergies.
