Just in case you guys didn’t know, people seriously enjoy drinking tea. To be specific, they really, really love green tea! According to teausa.com , it’s the most consumed beverage in the world besides water. Even though it tastes great, its skin benefits are even more spectacular. Green tea, for one, is rich with nutrients that we have been taking advantage of for years. Here are a few of green tea’s most substantial beauty benefits.

Anti-inflammatory
We all hate puffiness. You name it: facial or eye puffiness, under-eye circles, etc., needless to say, it’s not a good time. Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce sunburn redness or turn that puffy skin into soothed silk! If you have sensitive skin, or even have some severe skin issues like rosacea or psoriasis, you can benefit from its anti-inflammatory properties.

Antioxidant
You’ve heard about those pesky free radicals, right? Green tea is a strong antioxidant that fights the free radicals that cause premature aging. That’s a huge reason why it’s a key ingredient in our anti aging products like Rescue Me Night Cream . Cue forgetting about those dark under eye circles forever!

Repairs and strengthens skin
Green tea also repairs and strengthens skin by stopping nasty enzymes that break down collagen and elastin in their tracks. Its small amount of caffeine also shrinks those under eye circles, making this an under eye treatment you can count on. If you haven’t gotten the gist of it yet, green tea is pretty magical.

Sun protection
Because of green tea’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and other magical properties, it is ideal for sun protection. Since it eases inflammation, green tea can reduce the severity of sun damage and some studies even suggest that green tea protects against skin cancer. And you guessed it; it’s a key ingredient in our sun protection products.
