Wear Your Green Tea And Drink It Too
Recently, green tea has entered many cosmetics such as lotions and face masks. Recent research supports the benefits of green tea as a topical and as a drink. In 2000, a study in Archives of Dermatology found that the tea’s catechins provide antioxidant benefits.
“Of all the antioxidants known to mankind, the components of green tea are the most potent,” Dr. Hasan Mukhtar told WebMD. These antioxidants defend the skin from inflammation, including sunburns and cancerous growth. While green tea topicals have little scientific backing, you’re guaranteed to receive these benefits through drinking the tea.
