BENEFITS OF TEA FOR GLOWING SKIN

If you’re wondering exactly how tea can help you glow up, here’s a breakdown of the natural properties in tea that contribute to healthy skin.

Chamomile

Not only does chamomile tea calm your mind and body with a soothing aroma that naturally promotes beauty sleep, but it contains the powerful antioxidant quercetin that helps protect the skin against sun damage and breakouts. It can also heal acne scars and reduce pigmentation with free-radical fighting properties.

Green Tea

Green tea contains the most antioxidants by far which act as healthy prebiotics to create the best super tea solution for a healthy gut, and consequently, healthy skin. Green tea also contains catechins that are powerful anti-inflammatory agents. For even more healthy goodness, matcha has all of the same healthful benefits but at much higher levels, including vitamin K for increased blood circulation, and impactful levels of chlorophyll that may help protect the skin from environmental damage and clarify the complexion.

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea has powerful levels of nutrients that are good for your skin such as alpha hydroxy and zinc. This revitalizing tea has traditionally been used to treat skin issues such as eczema and reduce the effects of sun damage.

Rose Tea

Rose tea smells amazing and helps with healthy digestion and cellular turnover due to its anti-aging properties and levels of vitamin A.

Dandelion Tea

Dandelion tea is a natural healer that’s been used for centuries for healthy digestion, as an antiseptic, and as a source of vitamin C which is known to detoxify acne, balance, and tone skin.

Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is best known for its antibacterial properties that defend against skin infections.

Mint Tea

Mint tea is full of menthol that acts as an astringent, meaning it’s often used to minimize excess oil in your pores and reduce impurities in the skin. It’s also effective at reducing inflammation (see ya later splotchy redness!) and healing hormonal acne.

Hibiscus Tea

Hibiscus tea is a natural, gentle source of AHAs, a product often found in skin serums and cleansers. Hibiscus also contains antioxidants and is packed with vitamins that are linked to shrinking the appearance of pore size and protecting against environmental damage.

Jasmine Tea

Jasmine tea (often paired with green tea) contains tons of antioxidants that improve skin elasticity, fight free radicals, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles!
