The Skin Care Benefits of Green Tea

A recipe for beautiful skin

In skin care, Green Tea holds so many remarkable benefits.

Green Tea is a powerhouse antioxidant which has been shown to significantly halt the as they promote collagen synthesis. What is glycation? Simply put, it is the process of sugar proteins damaging the collagen and elastin in the skin. Choosing skin care products formulated with Green Tea can help fight glycation and minimize the signs of skin aging caused by dietary indiscretions such as excess sugar consumption.

The EGCG in Green Tea also helps protect against free radicals. Free radicals not only impact your health, but they negatively impact your skin. UV damage, smoke and other pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin, accelerating the aging process and damaging cells. This damage causes collagen and elastin to break down, making you look older, as we just mentioned with the glycation process.

When you apply skin care treatments with antioxidants, you may be shielding your skin from harm. There are actually several published, peer-reviewed studies about tea and the skin. One that stands out to me is the one published in the American Association for Cancer Research, which talks about tea’s ability to help prevent UVB damage.  Look for skin care products with Green Tea on the ingredients label. Even better, we can help you!

We realize what a crucial component Green Tea is to healthy skin and that is why you will find it in (seed) products. In fact, Green Tea is found in our two popular body moisturizers:

(seed) Body Lotion

(seed) Body Cream

Nourish your skin with Green Tea. It really is one of the best ingredients you can use on your skin!
