Introduce Green Tea To Your Skincare


Green Tea is not that strange in skincare and haircare. Widely known for its anti-aging, soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-viral, anti-bacterial, antioxidant properties among many other benefits. It is useful in all aspects of skincare and haircare.

It is one of the richest sources of polyphenols, also known as catechins, which are phytochemicals that are very beneficial for the human body, including the skin. These polyphenols help green tea in giving smoother skin, reduced ageing signs, increased collagen content, thicker and more elastic epidermis, and many other benefits.

The main active ingredient in Green Tea is ECGC (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) a potent antioxidant and protects the skin from environmental impacts.

Green tea also helps to moisturize the skin and improves the long-term barrier capabilities. Oily skin can benefit from it too as it has a balancing effect and also helps the skin to regulate oil production.

Green tea can be found in some moisturizers, serums, soaps, cleansers, shampoos, hair conditioners, facial masks, and scrubs. It is protective and corrective and suitable for all skin types.

Benefits of Green Tea for The Skin

Green tea is an antioxidant that protects the skin from free radicals caused by environmental problems like pollution. 

It reduces signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles, lightens dark spots and hyperpigmentation, dryness, and blemishes.

The caffeine in green tea helps with skin elasticity, also reduces dark circles around the eyes, and reduces pigmentations in general.

Green tea contains polyphenol which soothes burns, prevents sunburn, heals injuries and scars.


Benefits of Green Tea for The Hair

Green tea contains EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate) which has anti-inflammatory effects on the skin, so it is great for treating psoriasis, acne, eczema, dandruff, rosacea, and dermatitis.

The main active ingredient in Green Tea is ECGC (epigallocatechin-3-gallate). Green tea supports healthy hair growth and regrowth. EGCG in green tea supports healthy hair growth, stops hair loss, dandruff, dryness, prevents follicle death, and improves overall hair health.

For hair to grow properly it needs oxygen and nutrients delivered adequately to the skin. Hair loss will occur If this is obstructed. Green tea can help here.

Applying products with green tea to your hair roots and scalp will help protect and stimulate hair follicles which will ultimately increase hair growth. 

Green tea is a great ingredient for a wide array of DIY formulations because it can help with lightening and brightening of the skin, moisturizing and hydration, sun damage protection and repair, and wound healing support.
