Green and White Teas have long been touted for their health benefits. Drinking green and white tea daily helps boost metabolism and energy levels, and the polyphenols in these tea leaves aid the body in free radical control by boosting antioxidant levels.
But did you know that green and white teas are greatly beneficial for your skin as well? Polyphenols, which are a class of bioflavinoids, have been shown to have antioxidant, anticancer, antibacterial, and antiviral properties.
Most of the polyphenols in green tea are catechins. Catechins have also been shown to function as anti-inflammatory agents. One of the major catechins in green tea has been shown to be the most effective agent against skin inflammation.
Including green and white tea extracts in daily skin care products helps to boost other antioxidants like Vitamins A, C and E, keeping your skin protected, soothed and balanced.
* These great teas can be found in almost any of the Aroma Bella Skin Care products!
