Simple Sugars Facial Scrub: Green Tea (5 oz)
One word describes the main skin care advantage of Green Tea: anti-aging. And, that’s a good one. Green tea is an antioxidant powerhouse, so it protects against free radical damage (that’s the anti-aging bit).
The EGCG compounds in green tea can actually reactivate skin cells that are dying due to poor lifestyle habits, exposure to sunlight and pollution. Plus, it contains high level of oligomeric proanthocyanidins – OPCs – some of the most powerful antioxidants known to scientists. These antioxidants help ward off premature aging by fighting free radicals and healing damaged cells. And that’s not all: OPCs also inhibit the enzymes that break down collagen and elastin, which are essential for skin’s strength and suppleness.
Green Tea also increases the effectiveness of sunscreen and reduces inflammation caused by sun damage. In fact, studies performed at The Skin Center at the University Hospitals of Cleveland and Case Western Reserve University have found that topically applied Green Tea decreases the direct effects of sunburn. And, just in case you need one more reason: Green Tea is good for treating acne because it’s an excellent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory agent. The anti-inflammatory benefits of green tea help to calm irritated skin and reduce redness associated with acne and skin irritation.
