Is herbal tea your ticket to better skin?
Today’s young and modern generation has taken its wellness and aesthetic sense to very serious levels. People are going crazy over diet plans and workout routines. Not to mention, even the tea we consume is considered for its health benefits. Drinking herbal tea is a wonderful way to relax, warm up, and it’s also a great addition to your skincare regimen. Herbal tea is an easy and delicious way to hydrate and nourish the skin as it contains vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants which help to slow ageing, reduce UV damage, decrease inflammation and encourage the production of healthy skin cells.
Here are five herbal teas you can use to get radiant skin;
Chamomile is a calming herb that is packed with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. Drinking chamomile tea may help to reduce acne, skin inflammation and puffiness while protecting the skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun.
Tips On Tea: Tired of waking up with dark circles? You may need to snag more beauty sleep! So brew a cup of relaxing chamomile tea before bed, and you’ll fall asleep faster and create a healthier sleep schedule. Chamomile tea and teabags can also be applied topically to the skin to reduce puffy eyes, dry and irritated skin and acne.
Green tea is one of the most popular herbal teas on the market because it provides excellent health benefits and contains a small amount of caffeine so it keeps you alert too! Green tea contains antioxidants, polyphenols and catechins which are anti-inflammatory and have the ability to repair dying skin cells, prevent wrinkles and undo UV and environmental skin damage. Although you should always protect your skin when you go into the sun for prolonged periods, drinking green tea daily may help to reduce your risk of developing skin cancer!
