HOW GREEN TEA BENEFITS YOUR SKIN
What is Green Tea?
Green Tea is derived from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis Plant and is rich with antioxidants and nutrients. Green tea is considered to have many health benefits for a variety of health issues.
A 2018 study showed the compound present in green tea EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) was found to exhibit a wide range of therapeutic properties.
The EGCG in green tea has antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. The polyphenols in green tea can be used as a preventative of solar UVB light-induced skin disorders in humans including skin cancer and photo aging. EGCG fights DNA damage from UV rays to prevent skin cancer.
Drinking green tea and applying it to your skin can help your skin handle the aging process better.
