Traditional antioxidant as a skin booster: Green Tea
Most of us have a habit starting their day with a cup of either tea or coffee and many of us drink at least two or more cups of either tea or coffee every day. It helps us to kickstart our day and the caffeine in it wakes us up to perform all our daily tasks with fervor.
Imagine if we could reverse your skin aging process, improve our skin health, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, protect our skin from damage and also repair previous damage, all while we are drinking our tea. Wouldn’t that be great?
Switching our regular tea or coffee with Green Tea can help us do most of it.
What is Green Tea?
The trend of drinking tea originated from Japan and China where tea making and drinking are a part of their tradition. It later spread to other parts of the world thanks to Britishers.
Green tea is a type of tea similar to black tea. Its leaves undergo the process of oxidation when dried in the sunlight. This tea originates from China and other parts of Eastern Asia. During that time, it was made by pressing and churning its leaves into powder and then rolled and roasted to make tea but the concept of brewing the dried leaves in hot water came later and is prevalent even now.
The tea is especially high in antioxidants which helps to reduce oxidative stress on our internal organs and keep them well-functioning. Daily intake of Green Tea helps in improving metabolism and weight-loss.
Why is Green Tea good for your Skin?
Green tea specifically has high antioxidant properties. It contains Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) which is a powerful antioxidant that can combat and repair DNA damage and keep our cells healthy by reducing oxidative stress on our body.
This means that if it is applied topically, it becomes a very powerful anti-aging ingredient as well.
Premature anti-aging is mainly a result of oxidative stress caused by the excess exposure of UV rays and inflammation on our skin. Green tea has shown excellent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which successfully reduces free radical activity and inflammation on our skin to decrease the signs of skin aging.
Studies suggest that Green Tea has shown extraordinary chemopreventive and immunomodulatory properties for skin protection. This means, Green tea is not only beneficial in reducing oxidative stress but it also helps in protecting our skin from harmful skin problems and modulates our immune system to better protect our body from the various diseases.
Bee Elite Essentials has successfully captured these qualities of Green Tea in its Ageless series of products to give visibly youthful skin that glows. All Ageless products contain a myriad of power and potent ingredients that give visible results in just few weeks.
