1. GREEN TEA
Green tea has been known for its endless list of health benefits as a drink. These days however it is gaining popularity for topical application as well in a number of herbal skin care products. One of the prime features of green tea is that it works as a great antioxidant which helps in preventing and reducing signs of ageing thereby keeping the skin healthy and more youthful.
Scrub: It acts as a great exfoliate because of its granular texture and can be used to scrub off dead skin cells, dirt and other particulate matter present in the atmosphere that settles down on the skin on exposure.
Green tea also has smoothening and moisturizing properties which also keep the skin hydrated and soft. It also tones the skin texture removing sagginess and closing pores. Skin is damaged mainly due to the release of free radicals when the skin is exposed to pollutants, or due to extended exposure to sunlight. Green tea extracts have CATECHINS as a potent anti-oxidant which helps to neutralize the free radicals thereby protecting the skin against UV damage. The tannins present in green tea have an astringent action on the skin helping it to fight against fluid accumulation in places such as under eye areas which are often prone to puffiness due to various reasons. Besides there are no known side effects of the use of green tea in topical form.
