Organic Green Tea
Green Tea, Camellia sinensis: There are three types of tea leaves from the Camellia sinensis: green, oolong and black.
Green tea is steamed, baked or pan heated to prevent oxidation and thus, the leaves remain green. Oolong tea is partially fermented. Oxidation is cut short so the leaves are black only on the edges. Black tea is fully fermented, producing black leaves.
While drinking Green Tea is known for its incredible health benefits, did you know that those same benefits can be reaped by your skin when applied topically? The antioxidants found in Green Tea, especially epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG, can eliminate free radicals, rejuvenate dying skin cells and even reproduce skin cells—all factors that can fight against the aging process.
Green tea also contains moderate amounts of caffeine, which brightens skin, resulting in a complexion that is glowing and rejuvenated. Tea tannins and caffeine both work to shrink blood vessels, which can reduce the appearance of puffy eyes and dark circles. A natural astringent, Green Tea also mops up excess oil, dirt and grime from open pores, then tightens them to prevent pollutants from entering.
It is excellent for both skin and hair care. Tea is a mild astringent and has been used for centuries to cleanse, tone and purify the skin and scalp. One popular folk remedy says to place damp teabags on your eyelids to reduce swelling, puffiness and dark circles. Green Tea leaves can be used as a gentle exfoliant to give your skin a healthy glow.
