Which green tea is best for glowing skin?
Posted by Dr. Robert Levine on April 22, 2022

The simple answer is… All of them! Green tea is fantastic for your health generally. It’s rich in antioxidants that support health at all levels, but did you know? Green tea has some specific beauty advantages that you may want to take advantage of.

De-puff your eyes and reduce dark circles

Who needs expensive undereye masks when you can use green tea bags? Take a couple of cooled green tea bags and place them under your eyes for five to ten minutes. You can also choose to use cotton rounds soaked in tea! The secret to this natural remedy is the caffeine! Caffeine keeps you awake, but it also helps shrink blood vessels under your eyes and keep them looking young and bright!

Fight aging

Oxidation is the root cause of aging, and green tea’s high antioxidant levels make it a great tool in the fight against aging. It also contains both Vitamin B2 and Vitamin E, promoting healthy collagen levels, skin hydration, and new cell growth. Enjoy at least two cups a day and watch your skin glow!

Fight acne-causing bacteria

Green tea has antibacterial properties that help fight redness, swelling, and breakouts. You can get some of these benefits by developing a regular tea-drinking habit, but the quickest way to take advantage of them is to apply the tea topically to a breakout. Use cotton balls dipped in the tea for the best effect.

Use as a toner

Green tea makes a great natural toner! It shrinks large pores and helps skin stay looking clear by unclogging pores. Keep a small bottle in your bathroom, or anywhere you might need to give tired skin a quick refresh!

Fight skin cancer

Last but not least, green tea is a great way to help prevent skin cancer. Both by ingestion and by topical application, green tea exposes you to the potent antioxidant EGCG, which promotes DNA repair from harmful UV rays.
