You know that drinking certain kinds of tea can be good for your health—but did you know that some teas also have skin benefits? It’s true! Green tea can help keep your skin hydrated, reverse the effects of UV damage, and reduce inflammation.

 

  1. Improves Skin Complexion

Green tea improves your skin complexion and makes your skin healthy. It helps flush out toxins from the skin, heals blemishes and scars, and reduces inflammation. It even improves the skin’s elasticity. Green tea contains anti-bacterial agents that suppress acne-causing bacteria and help regulate hormonal imbalances. It also possesses potent anti-inflammatory properties that help reduce the redness and inflammation brought about by zits, thereby helping them heal sans the scars.

 

  1. Reduces Puffy Eyes and Dark Circles

Drinking green tea can help with puffy eyes as well as dark circles. It helps shrink blood vessels underneath the delicate skin around the eyes which, in turn, reduces swelling and puffiness. In addition, the vitamin K in green tea helps lighten dark circles under the eyes.

 

  1. Fights Aging Signs

Drinking green tea has anti-aging and antioxidant benefits that can help delay signs of skin aging, such as sagging skin, sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamins in green tea help neutralize harmful free radicals, which can cause significant damage to the skin and accelerate the aging process.

 

  1. Works as a Skin Toner

This popular beverage also works as a natural toner for your skin. Drinking green tea helps draw out impurities, reduce large pores and give your skin a nice healthy glow. It even helps keep your skin hydrated, which is essential for healthy skin.

 

  1. Protects Against Sun Damage

Drinking green tea can even protect your skin from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays of the sun as it helps soothe and heal sunburned skin by neutralizing the damage from exposure to UV rays. Published in the Journal of Nutrition, researchers found that, beyond aesthetics, drinking green tea rich in antioxidants protects against harmful UV radiation and visible signs of aging. The researchers concluded, “regular consumption of a beverage rich in tea flavanols contributed photoprotection against harmful UV radiation and helped maintain skin structure and function.”

 

  1. Shrinks Open Pores

Due to its antioxidant and astringent properties, green tea can help shrink enlarged pores that tend to get clogged and eventually get infected with bacteria. Thus, it will help smooth and tighten your skin.
