What is Green Tea?

Green tea is a popular beverage consumed by millions of people worldwide, but many people do not know it can also be used to treat a variety of skin conditions.

Green Tea is loaded with antioxidants called catechins, which have many benefits, including the ability to fight off free radicals that damage skin cells. Green Tea is also rich in natural compounds called polyphenols that have potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Green tea has long been renowned for its health benefits and is now becoming a well-known product in the skincare world. It is 100% natural and has been used for beauty for hundreds of years.

Howcan the benefits of green tea help your skin? The answer lies in its antioxidant polyphenol and flavonoid content, which are responsible for the many health benefits of green tea.

Due to its ability to protect skin cells, green tea has been used in skin care treatments, including sunscreen and moisturisers.
