Recent Research shows that Green Tea is packed with beauty benefits that you can attain by drinking it as well as by applying it directly onto your skin. It’s no doubt a preferred drink of the famous models these days.
In this article you will find green tea beauty benefits.
Usually most of the make-up, beauty lotions, creams and other beauty products use chemical antioxidants, or vitamins A, C and E as preservatives. But due to the recent studies, it has been found that green tea has potent antioxidants properties that are even more powerful than the vitamins and hence there is a surge in availability and usage of the beauty products that contain green tea.
The green tea is packed with natural antioxidants, which protect your body and skin from free radicals, which would not only help in delaying the ageing process but also save you from the increased risk of many life-style diseases. The natural antioxidants contained in green tea not only stimulate good health but also makes you look younger.
The good news is that you don’t need to spend to buy expensive green tea beauty products. You can easily make concentrated green tea extract at home and use it as an additional armor in your daily beauty and health routine.
