Had one too many dimsums to eat? Have some green tea. Stress levels at an all-time high? Have some green tea. Looking to fight premature ageing, acne, sun damage, skin irritation and inflammation? WELL HAVE SOME GREEN TEA! This centuries-old ingredient is so beneficial that it is hard to not understand why it’s Approved By You aka the global beauty community.
Here’s why the community approves of green tea:
We live in a world where we are surrounded by free radicals which are naturally occurring molecules that cause damage to our cells. Free radicals are also the key reason behind environmental damages our skin experiences such as those caused by pollution, the sun, micro dust and other pollutants around us. To protect our skin from free radicals and these associated skin damages, antioxidants (these are naturally occurring vitamins and minerals that protect our skin) become important and green tea is loaded with antioxidants that protect our skin from free radicals.
High levels of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory properties and the fact it works well with all skin types – acne-prone, dry, oily, sensitive, normal and combination, make green tea a must-use skincare ingredient.
How is the community using green tea:
From using cooled green tea bags as patches for soothing the under eye to whipping a matcha mask to using green tea cleansers for everyday use, toners with green tea that target acne, anti-fatigue and anti-ageing serums and moisturizers with green tea as an active ingredient, the community is pretty much making green tea a part of its skincare routine in some way or the other.
As powerful and potent this ingredient is, it is also extremely easy on the skin and gently works to banish skin concerns.
