One of the greatest benefits of green tea is its role in improving skin quality and maintaining the health of the skin.
Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and hence it contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, unlike other tea that are fermented.
Green tea also loves your brain; it promotes alpha wave thinking or more relaxed thinking. So, swapping your normal chai at work is going to do wonders to your brain activity and productivity at work. It also contains EGCG which is one of the only antioxidants that can cross the eye barrier into the lens area.
One of the greatest benefits of green tea is its role in improving skin quality and maintaining the health of the skin. Green tea is said to be healthy for the skin in numerous ways and we're detailing how it may help you maintain a healthy and glowing skin.
Fights acne: Green tea has been found to possess a polyphenolic compound EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), which is antioxidant and anti-inflammatory in nature. It may help prevent acne and other skin infections.
Control oily skin: The EGCG present in green tea is known to be anti-androgenic in nature. This effectively means that it regulates the production of androgens in the body, which in turn may reduce oil or sebum production on the skin.
Slows down skin ageing: There is some evidence to suggest that topical application of green tea extracts along with consumption of the tea may help improve skin elasticity, and hence, slow down skin ageing. Green tea is also known to have a moisturising effect on the skin and it may also reverse sun damage on the skin.
Reduces risk of Melanoma: A 2003 study - conducted by the researchers at Department of Dermatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham - concluded that green tea might be used as a pharmacological agent for the prevention of disorders of the skin caused by excessive exposure to ultraviolent radiations.
