Green Tea?

I know what your thinking.  Why green tea?  Green tea is not only an amazing drink but also a problem solver!  Green tea helps prevent a variety of conditions, from heart disease to cancer, from gum disease to weight loss, acne, and skin aging.  There have been many studies to prove these things.  Animal studies showed protection of skin cancer and animal and human studies demonstrated that tropical green tea formulas reduce sun damage by quenching free radicals and reduces inflammation rather than blocking UV rays.  It will help even more when you wear sunscreen everyday.

Green tea also helps with skin sagging, wrinkles, and any other signs of aging.  Their well documented antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities, tropical green tea polyphenols slow down some of the signs of aging but if it completely gets rid of skin sag or wrinkles is uncertain.

To use green tea in your everyday skincare routine is easy, since sun protection of green tea are particularly well documented, it would make since to apply a green tea formula under your sunscreen and foundation.  It will also help to incorporate green tea into your skin maintenance routine but green tea cream might not be the best way to go because like other antioxidants, green tea polyphenols are oxidized and lose their activity when touching air.

I hope these tips were helpful to you!  Enjoy some of my other tips!
