Green tea has widely gained popularity in recent years for its vast beauty and health benefits. Green tea contains high antioxidants as well as enzymes, amino acids, magnesium, vitamin B, caffeine and much more which provides a long list of benefits related to acne, wrinkles, skin tone, weight reduction etc.
You can use green tea in your beauty masks to enhance your beauty or drink 3-4 cups of green tea daily to enjoy its enormous health benefits. Many products in the market contain green tea as an active ingredient, however, you can always try these cost effective homemade face masks. Below are a few benefits of green tea which I have shortlisted after months of research and personal use:
Green tea has antibacterial agents that fight against acne causing bacteria. These agents also help regulate hormonal imbalances in the body which is often one of the most important factors causing acne. This reduces oil production which leads to less clogging of pores and thus leads to less pimples. It also reduces redness caused by acne.
Green tea used as a toner helps clear the skin from all impurities and helps reduce large pores, thus, giving a healthy glowing skin. It also helps to keep the skin hydrated.
Rice flour has exfoliating properties that treat blemishes, spots etc. It helps absorb excess oil from the face.
Sugar provides a good exfoliation for the skin by removing dead cells and dirt from upper layers of the skin.
Yogurt is rich in calcium, proteins and vitamin D. It helps moisturize the skin, prevents acne, and reduces dark spots, blemishes and sunburns.
Drink 3-4 cups of green tea daily and use it on the skin. You will start seeing major improvements from week 1. It is all natural and among the best and cheap treatments for your skin problems.
