How Green Tea is good for your skin

Clear, glowing skin - it's what we all strive for. Japanese women seem to have that youthful glow, yet for some of us we have the challenges of skin conditions that make us just plain miserable! It seems so unfair but a few tweaks to our diet and skincare regime might just be what your skin needs.... 

Green tea is an essential part of the Japanese diet. There's a great number of reasons green tea is good for you but let's focus on our skin and what it can do to help you.

Not only can you drink green tea, you can also apply it to your skin for incredible benefits. The good news is, we have you covered! Our 1st range of products are both green tea leaves and a green tea face mask - treat your body from the inside out and your skin will love you for it.

Green Tea contains a high amount of catechins called EGCG, which are the antioxidants that play a huge role in protecting your cells from damage caused by free radicals.

Also known as a "superfood", green tea has a higher level of vitamins and minerals than other foods. This includes Vitamins B & E - both of which are essential for skin health. Vitamin B helps to maintain collagen production, which increases elasticity of skin and Vitamin E helps to promote cell regeneration.

Let's break down how this amazing tea is going to help your skin:

SKIN REPAIR

Drinking green tea everyday can help reduce cell damage caused by UV rays and enhance DNA repair. (Read study here)

Rejuvenating dying skin cells. This study has shown that drinking green tea can help revive those skin cells that are more or less dead! 

Start drinking green tea today and get those skin cells revived! Think glowing skin!

ANTI-INFLAMMATORY 

Green Tea's anti-inflammatory properties can help reduce redness, irritation and soothe skin. A good tip is to apply topically too. Our Matcha face mask is perfect for this - it is made from fresh Matcha tea and rice powder.  Applied weekly, you can enjoy calmer skin with an antioxidant boost!

DETOX

 Green tea can help detox your body. Flush out those nasty toxins and enjoy skin that glows because your body is healthier on the inside. 

ANTI-AGING

The antioxidants in green tea are excellent at fighting premature aging. Antioxidants basically eliminate free radicals that can cause fine lines and wrinkles.....

OUR TEA

We source our green tea from a family run, organic green tea farm in Uji, Kyoto in Japan. We only want to use the best quality tea for our products to ensure the best results. 

Green tea is derived from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. It is one of the least processed teas, making it among the healthiest to drink in the world!

Are you ready to feel and look fabulous?!
