7 BEAUTY BENEFITS OF GREEN TEA YOU MAY LOVE. YOU MAY LOVE NO. 5!

#1
Are you one of those fit-fam girls who don’t go to bed without a cup of green tea? Ah, well kudos to you. I did start down that road but I couldn’t be committed to it so didn’t last long.

Everyone talks of consuming Green Tea regularly, but nobody really talks of why exactly it is beneficial for our health. While some people know that Green Tea is soothing to the senses and helps in reducing weight, not many people know that there is a lot more to it.

Now I made some research on not just health benefits of green tea, but on the beauty benefits also. And there’s loads of it. I’d just mention a few though:

1. IT PREVENTS SUN DAMAGE ON THE SKIN

The skin has free radicals, which when exposed to the sun, lead to tanning and skin damage. Green Tea helps in combating that problem by neutralizing these radicals when it is applied on the skin. It works both ways – inside out and outside in.

2. IT REDUCES ACNE

Green Tea is a huge plus for those who face constant troubles with acne. It containscatechins, which are basically anti-bacterial elements that help in the reduction of acne and also reduce the over stimulation of hormones in the body. Green Tea masks also help to improve the skin complexion.

3. IT CLEANSES AND FRESHENS YOUR FACE

Green Tea bags can offer an instant facial to you. Just take a tea bag and run it under hot water for a few minutes. Let some of the water drip, and then rub the steamy bag gently on your face. It will offer an instant refreshing feeling, and will cleanse your face nicely. This is perfect to do just before a party.

4. IT ACTS AS A TONER

Add some green tea water (prepared by brewing green tea in hot water and then discarding the tea leaves or the tea bag) to rose water, and then store it in your refrigerator. Use it every now and then as a toner to prevent aging and experience skin tightening and brightening.

5. IT HELPS TO REDUCE WEIGHT

Green Tea acts as a diuretic agent for the body, helping in flushing out a lot of extra and harmful toxins, which eventually helps to lose excess weight.

6. IT HELPS TO REDUCE DRYNESS

Green tea leaves (after being soaked in hot water) can be mashed with yogurt to form a paste. Apply it as a mask and wash it off after 20 minutes. Yogurt acts like a protein boost for the skin, and green tea has a soothing effect. Together, they reduce dryness and leave the skin supple.

7. IT STRENGTHENS HAIR

Green tea hair masks are good for strengthening the hair and providing the scalp with a good cleanse every now and then. For a homemade pack, simply mix green tea with yogurt and apply it to your hair and scalp. Leave it on for about an hour before washing off with a shampoo.

Now you know that there is a lot more you can do with Green Tea than just drinking it! Try out all these wonderful beauty benefits of green tea, and experience an enhancement in your skin condition. And the good thing about Green Tea is that it suits almost everybody, and hardly has any side effects!
