Did you know… evidence shows that people consumed tea leaves steeped in boiling water as many as 5,000 years ago?! Hundreds of millions of people drink tea around the world today, and studies suggest that green tea in particular has many health benefits. Green tea is made from non-fermented leaves and reportedly contains the highest concentration of powerful antioxidants called polyphenols, which makes green tea better than the two other types of tea, black and oolong.
Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat. One study confirmed that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in overweight and moderately obese individuals. Also, drinking green tea has been found effective in small clinical study for dental caries, or tooth decay. The antioxidants are also known to be amazing for the skin, especially with helping blemishes. Hence, what I normally do is drink a cup of green tea every day and then take the tea leaves from the tea or the tea bag and press it onto my face for about 5 minutes. Go to the grocery store now and get yourself some green tea! Make sure that the green tea you purchase is all natural.
Also, try Boscia Purifying Cleansing Gel (can be purchased at Sephora), which contains green tea. It gently-yet-thoroughly purifies, refines the look of pores, and leaves the skin feeling fresh and comfortable. It is free of harmful chemicals like parabens, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, GMOs, Triclosan, and Phthalates.
