Why is it that we are starting to see more and more inner ingredients, like nourishing oils, nuts and even teas, that are not only good for our health but our skin? It seems that you can find some of the most sought after skincare ingredients simply in your cupboard, that are not only great topical treatments, but fantastic when used as inner beauty supplements. You’ve surely heard of the incredible benefits green tea has on your health, from improving brain function to reducing the risk of cancer, but green tea also contains a particular group of anti-oxidants, which are scientifically proven to bestow amazing benefits to your skin as well, including:

  • Increased Hydration. Green tea helps to hydrate the upper layers of the skin, resulting in enhanced enzyme action and increase natural moisturising factors. Not only does hydrated skin feel better inside and out, it also reflects the light, giving healthy skin a luminous glow.
  • Anti-Inflammatory and Redness. Green tea has been proven to have powerful anti-inflammatory properties, making it the perfect addition to the diets of sensitive and those prone to psoriasis, rosacea or acne skin types. Green tea is cooling and calming, unlike other drinks like coffee, soft drink, anything with a large amount of caffeine.
  • Reverses Caffeine Damage. Caffeine can deplete the body, so if you’re not putting the right kind of caffeine into your system, your skin will show it. Green tea is known for its de-puffing properties, with the addition of anti-oxidants, which work to reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness in the eye area, that your daily coffee can create.
  • Reduce the Signs of Ageing. Green tea has ongoing benefits, including fighting acne-causing bacteria, and fighting accelerated ageing effects. Due to its high anti-oxidant content, which works to fight free radical damage, green tea helps to encourage the healing of damaged skin cells
