Can Herbal Teas Give My Complexion a Boost?
You may have noticed a wider variety of green and black tea at your local grocery store over the past five years. We certainly have! And it’s a welcome sight to see.
It seems the world may finally be catching on as to the fact that herbal teas can help with many of life’s challenges. From adaptogenic chai tea to the herbal teas discussed in the article below, we’ve got you covered!
“Herbal teas have many benefits – some of them help us sleep, some have antibacterial properties, while others improve our digestion or reduce bad cholesterol. However, many herbal teas also have a positive impact on our skin,” writes Stella Ryne for T-Ching.
Below are a few of our favorite teas that are thought to support a youthful appearance and skin tone.
Green tea is an incredible fighter against wrinkles. Free radical-fighting catechins in it are what prevent wrinkles from appearing but they also reduce the existing skin damage from the sun. Not just that – catechins also breathe life into dying skin cells and help the production of new ones.
Stress is also one of the causes of bad complexion. Stress acne can be prevented if you drink chamomile tea because it has anxiolytic and antioxidant effects. Not just that – chamomile also has antibacterial and anti-mutagenic effects, which all help prevent or reduce acne lesions that got inflamed. Chamomile is also the most common tea people drink when they want to calm themselves, which also helps the skin heal.
You shouldn’t think of dandelions as simple weeds that annoy you in the garden. They can be used in salads and for making tea. You wouldn’t believe just how many benefits dandelion tea has for your internal organs and your skin. First of all, dandelion tea is full of antioxidants. It also improves your immune system, which helps your skin stay healthy and look healthy. If you suffer from indigestion, it can lead to skin problems – stomach issues will show on your face in most cases. Dandelion tea will improve your digestion, making the skin issues go away.
