Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, you would have definitely heard the hype surrounding green tea. It’s something that has been endorsed by every health specialist around the globe; we’re constantly being told that we must drink more of it.
Green tea includes a high number of antioxidants, as well as other ingredients such as B vitamins, enzymes and amino acids.
Initially it was used in China for medicinal reasons. The Chinese believed that it could cure absolutely anything; from depression to sickness. These days, it’s used in a similar fashion, with many people claiming that drinking it has lots of health benefits.
We’ve got to admit that we’ve definitely been converted here at Skinstation. Not only does drinking green tea have lots of health benefits, it also has plenty of beauty ones too! And we love anything that makes our skin look fabulous.
Makes You Feel Good
Green tea has been shown to give your body AND mood a huge boost. This is due to the caffeine and theanine within the tea. The caffeine is responsible for lifting your energy, whilst the theanine will work to relieve anxiety and stress. The flavonoids in the tea also help to keep stress at a minimum, which it does by making you feel relaxed.
Gives You Glowing Skin
This is probably our number one reason for swapping our cup of coffee in the morning for a cup of green tea. Research has recently shown that green tea could be responsible for slowing down the growth of excess cells, cells that could later lead to a number of skin problems.
The antioxidants in the green tea nourish the skin and are responsible for reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Who doesn’t want to look younger? Green tea also hydrates the body, which improves the health of the skin.
Helps Weight Loss
There is a reason why any diet you follow will suggest swapping tea and coffee for green tea. This is because it’s been known to help with weight loss. Even if you don’t want to change anything else in your diet or lifestyle, it’s recommended that you do introduce green tea into your daily routine. It won’t magically make you lose weight, but it will increase your metabolism.
Catechins are a natural phenol and antioxidant that are found in green tea. These are antibacterial agents that help to fight the bacteria that cause acne. Not only this, they also help to improve the imbalance of hormones within the body, an imbalance that can be the reason behind the appearance of acne.
