Green tea in the service of beauty

Clinical evidence shows that green tea has the ability to affect the health and beauty. You can enjoy green tea if you drink or applied directly to the skin. Even the leaves can be used as a tool for mild exfoliation that will give the skin a healthy glow. 

Recent research shows that green tea is naturally rich in antioxidants that protect the body from free radicals that are associated with accelerated aging and increased risk of disease. Exposure to pollution, smoking and sun increases the number of free radicals in the blood, but the powerful antioxidants to promote good health and younger looking skin.

Many types of lotions, creams and cosmetics used chemical antioxidants and vitamins A, C and E as preservatives for the products. Studies suggest that green tea has even more antioxidant than these powerful vitamins.

No, you do not need to spend money on expensive beauty products. The concentrated extract of green tea is easy to make at home and flexible addition to everyday beauty.

Simply put 100g of green tea in half a liter of water and leave at room temperature for at least an hour. The liquid can be used as a tonic, a pad of cotton wool soaked in liquid can act in soothing tired and strained eyes.

Green tea is also known for its ability to prevent bad breath. Try to make your own toothpaste.

Pour one cup of boiling water over 100g of green tea and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Make a paste with liquid and one teaspoon of baking soda. Use to brush your teeth because the natural properties found in tea help prevent bad breath.

Green tea can be used as a face mask. This gentle mask will help remove toxins and give you silky smooth skin.

Mix three tablespoons of mayonnaise with a teaspoon of tea leaves. Apply evenly to the face, avoiding the delicate areas around the eyes and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse off the mask, and then pat dry and moisturise your face.
