Green tea is full of skin-strengthening antioxidant vitamins that play a role in maintaining collagen levels and supporting new skin cell growth. Vitamins B2, E, K, and catechins are potent antioxidants that fight against ageing.
Catechins found in green tea (EGCG) are incredibly potent and have been found to revive dying skin cells. They neutralise free radicals that attack and damage the DNA of cells and help encourage the healing of cells. They also inhibit the break-down of collagen (collagenase), which helps maintain firm, elastic skin.
Green tea (EGCG) helps skin hydration increasing moisture retention and reduces melanin (pigment) generation.
Green tea is a powerful antibacterial agent—polyphenols in the tea help fight against infection and inflammation found in acne. EGCG is anti-androgenic and lowers lipid (oil) levels, making this excellent news for people suffering from hormonal acne breakouts.
Green tea can protect you from the sun. Researchers suggest that green tea has sun protecting mechanisms that offer “protection against sunburn inflammation and potentially longer-term ultraviolet radiation-induced skin ageing.
Green tea has caffeine and tannins that help shrink blood vessels around the eyes. Tannins also act as an astringent, which shrink pores.
Green tea helps to reduce the production of sebum (the skin’s natural oil) by the glands.
Green tea plays a significant role in reducing inflammation. When inflammation is present in the skin, it is red, irritated and inflamed.
EGCG is anti-androgenic and lowers lipid levels making it effective at reducing oil excretions in the skin. By reducing sebum (oil), EGCG can slow or stop the development of acne.
