3 Types Of Tea To Renew Your Skin Care Routine

As you may know, one of the best known benefits of drinking tea is due to its anti-oxidizing properties; it is packed with anti-oxidants such as catechins, polyphenols and theaflavins etc (depending on the type of tea). Do you know you can also include tea in your skin care routine?

Indeed, our skin is really considered as one of our best assets, protecting us and making us look good. We definitely have to care for our skin! Here are 3 types of tea you can use for your skin care:

Chamomile

The chamomile is a common name for several daisy-like plant species for the tea infusions that you often find in café menus. Herbal uses include easing heartburn and nausea, and upset stomachs ad so on. Because of its anti-inflammatory properties, it is often added into skin care cosmetics such as acne cream and others.

WHAT YOU CAN DO – Rinsing the face with cooled chamomile tea after the usual cleansing can help to cool down the skin to alleviate irritation. Alternatively, you can soak cotton in the tea itself, and then place it on top of your face mask. The chamomile acts as an additional ingredient to your skin care routine!

Green Tea

Another common tea beverage, green tea is known for its many benefits such as reduced risk to skin cancer, lowered cholesterol levels etc. It is power-packed with anti-oxidants, vitamins, enzymes and so on. Importantly, it flushes out toxins from the skin and lessens the inflammation rate.

WHAT YOU CAN DO – Remove the tea leaves from the used tea bags and mix with 1 – 2 teaspoons of raw honey. Add in a very small amount of lemon juice, mix well and apply on the face. After 5 – 10 minutes, rinse with warm water.

Lavender

Comprising over 30 species of flowering plants, lavender can be found from Asia to Africa to Europe. Cultivated often as an ornamental plant, lavender also turns out to be commonly used for culinary and herbal purposes. For instance, it is partnered extensively with chamomile for aromatherapeutic uses.

WHAT YOU CAN DO – The tea can be used to apply as a skin wash to relieve itching and rashes, and other skin infections.

Because of its efficacy, tea has always been a favourite subject in research studies. Recently, in one 2015 study, scientists found that polyphenols in green tea is able to block the signalling function of a compound called VEGF. The latter causes atherosclerosis (hardening and narrowing of blood vessels).
